Principal's Message

Friday, January 15, 2021

Hello Bernabi families!  Each winter, and then again each summer, our Building Planning Team (which consists of faculty, staff and parents) sends out a brief survey, one to staff and one to parents/the community.  We use this data to determine whether or not we are meeting the goals we created for the school year, and to subsequently create new goals.

Below is a link to our mid-year parent survey, and I hope you are willing to offer a few brief minutes of your time to complete this.  As you will see from the way many of the questions are worded, our parent/community goals are focused on communicating what’s happening at school (and in this year’s case—at home!).  Sometimes this communication comes from me, especially when it comes to big picture items, and other times it comes from classroom teachers, especially around anything instructional.  Either way, your responses will help us know if we’re on track with respect to our level of communication.

On another note, as you know, we have made significant changes from the start of the year in support of students’ (and parents’!) access to special area classes.  That said, we have reached the mid-term point of our second trimester, and I have asked for my specials teachers to once again send out a note to any student who has not completed at least 50% of the online work that teachers have prepared.  As I shared with you on October 16, and as was demonstrated on students’ report cards in November; we remain committed to offering students access to these important classes, and as always, we collaborate on grading, assessment and data driven instructional planning.  If you receive this note and have any questions or concerns, I thank you in advance for reaching out to special area teachers directly as soon as possible, as the next report card will be here quickly and I want to make sure we maintain open lines of communication.

I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend and I would like to invite all Bernabi families to reflect on the meaning of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  This week, our students had the opportunity to watch a read aloud of the book Martin’s Big Words by Doreen Rappaport and complete an activity about how to use their hands to make the world a better place.  Thank you in advance for taking time this weekend to revisit Dr. King’s legacy.

Thank you again in advance for your support of our BPT survey, and if you ever have any questions about the work we do, feel free to reach out to me directly, or our parent representative on the team, Mr. Ben Hays at: firstfruitsmusic@gmail.com

Sincerely,

David Caiazza
