Out of an abundance of caution, and due to the threat of severe weather, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System will be closing all schools and offices Thursday, April 18th. The BRCVPA Spring Concert and Spring Picnic will be postponed until Thursday, May 9th. We wish you all a safe and wonderful spring break!
We are incredibly proud of our Kindergarten students for their Kindergarten Mini-Production, of This School Will Not Be Fun, last Thursday. The students did a phenomenal job! Major thanks to the Arts Faculty for another fabulous show, and thank you to classroom teachers and parents for your support and your attendance; we had a packed house!
This Thursday, April 18th is an action-packed day at BRCVPA! We will start the day being entertained by our 3rd - 5th Grade Performance Groups at the Spring Concert, which begins at 9:00 a.m. All grade levels will attend the performance as an audience.
Following the concert, at 11:00, iCare will be here to speak to parents about keeping our kids safe on the internet.
At 11:30, our April MOH event, the Spring Picnic, will begin! We will have free play, music, and family-friendly yoga! Families are invited to join in on the fun. Students will be provided a picnic lunch by the cafeteria. Family guests are welcome to bring their own lunch, picnic blanket, chairs, etc.
We are closely watching the weather, and will make a decision about rescheduling the picnic by Wednesday. The Spring Concert and Parent Meeting will occur this Thursday, April 18th, regardless of weather.
If thunderstorms prevent us from having the picnic this week, it will be rescheduled for Thursday, May 9th.
Supply kits for 2019-2020 are available now from 1st Day Supplies! Ordering supply kits through 1st Day allows us to bring quality supplies at reasonable prices into the classroom. Teachers get the exact supplies they request, and you save time and money. When you order your supply kits through 1st Day, the cost includes replenishment throughout the year, as well as items the school purchases in bulk.
It's not too early to check this off of your Back=to-School list!
Ms. Berry's class took advantage of the beautiful weather we had outside! They took their goods and services review outside and enjoyed some time in the bright Louisiana sunshine! Students worked in teams to hunt eggs, review the content, and collaboratively engage in quality discussions with their classmates.
NO SCHOOL SPRING BREAK

Students in Ms. Curtis' first grade class are learning about plants. They explored parts of the plants this week and learned about the function of each part. Students then planted their own seeds and will be responsible for watering them in the hopes that they will grow! Stay tuned.........

Dear BRCVPA Families,
This year our whole school read the book Malala’s Magic Pencil as part of a school-wide program designed to bring our community closer together. As we learn about Malala’s life of service, each grade level is completing a project to help people in our community.
Third Grade has chosen to help the homeless in our area. Earlier this month, a representative from St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter came to speak to our students about their needs. After the visit, our third graders decided to make care packages for homeless individuals filled with much-needed items.
Please talk with your child about specific items you all can donate to help fill these packages and help third grade help the homeless. Recommended items include: new socks, non-perishable snacks (crackers, etc.), and travel-size toiletries like toothpaste and deodorant.
Please also send in empty (gently used) gift bags, tote bags, and sturdy shopping bags for us to pack with items. These bags will become our care packages for homeless individuals.
Students may begin bringing items (care package bags and supplies) to school this week. Please bring all donated items by Monday, April 8th.
Thank you for your support of this important project!
