Elementary students in East Baton Rouge Parish were invited to create posters illustrating a theme in fire prevention. This year's theme is "Look, Listen, Learn. Be aware - Fire can happen anywhere." The posters were judged by the East Baton Rouge Fire Department based on theme, creativity, and originality. Congratulations, BRCVPA students: Maheba (4th grade, 3rd Place), Ali (3rd grade, 1st Place), Calvez (PK, 1st Place), and Lucy (Kindergarten, 3rd Place)! They all placed in the annual East Baton Rouge Parish Fire Prevention Poster Contest. Tuesday evening, they were recognized and rewarded at the annual Fire Prevention Banquet by the Baton Rouge Fire Department and Mayor Sharon Weston-Broome. We are so proud of each of them! A special thank you to everyone who participated in the poster contest. We had some outstanding entries, and the competition was tough!
5th Graders created Aztec "artifacts" and learned about how an economy works by buying, selling, and trading their artifacts. Thank you, Ms. Elston for always making our classes fun and engaging for our students.
Fourth grade students have been working hard creating and preparing for the annual Opera. They have come up with a company name, theme, and have already written the script. Students are now working hard composing the music and designing costumes. These are some fun pictures of the job fair where they had a chance to try out all the different crews. We hope you will join us for the final performance in December!

What an incredible event! Once again, our BRCVPA families came out in full force as they joined us in a colorful night of fun! A very special thank you to T.J. Ribs for hosting our BRCVPA Family Dinner Night, and for helping our students Tie-Dye our shirts.
On one of your visits to campus, you may have noticed our Good Deeds board outside of the office. This is a place where we recognize the Good Deeds we see from our amazing students each day!
We have a Good Deeds Google form, into which teachers, staff, and parents can enter the good deeds they see happening all around them.
These deeds are then written onto post-its, and displayed for others to see! Student good deeds are displayed outside the office, and teacher good deeds are displayed in the teacher workroom.
If you see or hear about Good Deeds happening, please, use the form and let us know!
Here are just a few of the student Good Deeds we've gotten so far this year:
Students in Ms. James' 3rd Grade Science class were given different materials and had to use their understanding of force and motion to create a pendulum and answer some constructed response questions. In the end, they were left with pendulum art!
It's time for our students to design the 2018 Fall Fest T-Shirt! This year, since our Fall Fest Theme is Superheroes, students have the opportunity to design an original Superhero logo to be featured on our Fall Fest shirt!
Contest entry forms are coming home in folders this week! If you do not receive one, or if you need extra copies, click the button below to print more. We have been impressed year after year with the creativity and talent of our students. We can't wait to see the SUPER entries that come back!
DESIGN ENTRY FORMS MUST BE TURNED IN TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 16TH TO BE CONSIDERED!
Below are some examples of commonly known Superhero logos to give you some ideas for where to start!
1. Keep your shirt "tied" up for 24 hours
2. Open it up and let it air dry for another 24 hours.
3. After that, wash it in cold water with other dark colors only.
We had fun tie dyeing shirts with all of our families who came! We hope you all had a great night. Thank you for coming out and supporting BRCVPA!
Congratulations, BRCVPA Family! Collectively, we have all been chosen as the 2018 Baton Rouge Parent Magazine 2018 Family Favorite Creative Arts Program. This is a great honor since it is a community award chosen by you! What a great honor!
