Speaking of space, READY JET GO!, a new series for children ages 3-8, airs at 3 p.m. on LPB HD. The animated series helps children learn astronomy and Earth science concepts. The series follows two neighborhood children: Sean, who has an all-consuming drive for science facts, and Sydney, who has a passion for science fiction and imagination. They both befriend the new kid on their street, Jet Propulsion, whose family members happen to be aliens from the planet Bortron 7. Together they explore the solar system and the effects it has on the science of our planet, while learning about friendship and teamwork along the way.
If you too love Jazz, then you will be interested in the series, Jazz, airing on LPBHD. Two episodes of Jazz air on April 3rd from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Episode 1: Gumbo tells of the beginning of Jazz in New Orleans in the 1890s when African-American musicians create a new music by mixing ragtime syncopations and the soulful feeling of the blues. Episode 2: The Gift introduces the brilliant bandleader and composer Duke Ellington and the virtuoso New Orleans-born cornetist Louis Armstrong, who single-handedly transforms jazz from ensemble music to a soloist's art.

On March 22nd, the BRCVPA Fitness Team competed in the EBR Parish Elementary Fitness Meet at Broadmoor High School. Students compete 7 different events: 50 yd dash, shuttle run, sit and reach, pull ups, curl ups, standing broad jump, and the 600 yd dash. We are so HAPPY to say we are back in the top 10 performing schools. These students did an amazing job. SO MUCH FUN!!!!!

Wishing you all a safe and "egg-citing" Easter and spring break!
It’s time to start planning the end of the year – graduation party for our 5th graders! To help in the planning process, we’ve set up a Facebook group page named “BRCVPA 2016 5th Grade Class.” If you are on Facebook, join the group to keep updated on the planning process. If you are not on Facebook, there is an online poll we’ve set up to get everyone’s preference for a date and time for the party, the address for the poll is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CZRKT7F
We would also like to set up an email database for the class, so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure I get your email address added to the group. There’s a lot going on between now and the end of school, so we may need to do most of the planning via email to make sure everyone can stay in the loop as much as possible.
We’ll be looking for parents to form committees to do everything from getting food, decorating, set-up, music, to general planning, so if you would like to serve on a particular committee, please let me know via email or on the Facebook page.
We’re looking forward to ending this school year strong and celebrating all of our kids and their success at BRCVPA!
