Congratulations, fourth graders! Our annual BRCVPA opera performance was a huge success. We had students from Claiborne Elementary come out for the daytime performance of A Pineapple Problem. They enjoyed asking our crews questions about how they created the script, designed the costumes, and even wanted to know about how they built the foot lights! After the show, we took a group picture with the Claiborne Elementary students and then they took some individual pictures with the actors. Well done, 66 Rising Stars Opera Company!
We would like to say thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to transform our school into a Tropical Rain Forest for fall fest. Your hard work created a wonderful evening of fun and entertainment for our BRCVPA friends and families. Thank you all so much!
November is the time to be thankful, a time to remember and to embrace those who enrich our lives. We are thankful for a lot of things, but we are most thankful for all our wonderful BRCVPA faculty and staff members, students, and families!
We wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
The Science Club competed in a STEM contest at Baton Rouge Magnet High School against other elementary schools. Two BRCVPA teams placed first and second in the spaghetti tower-building contest. One of our teams placed first in the aluminum boat-building contest. BRCVPA won first place overall!!!!!! Students had the opportunity to view science exhibits put on by BRMHS students and LSU. We also enjoyed seeing many BRCVPA alumni at the contest!
I repeat: BRCVPA won first place overall!!!!!!
Congratulations, Ms. Wells! Thank you for representing BRCVPA as the Elementary Teacher of the Year for the 2014-2015 school year. You have continued to make us proud!
Dudley the dinosaur from Associates in Pediatric Dentistry came to school last week to teach our Kindergarten students how to keep their teeth clean and healthy!

Known worldwide as the "Ambassadors of Goodwill"™, the iconic Harlem Globetrotters visited BRCVPA. "The ABCs of Bullying Prevention," was designed by the Globetrotters in coordination with the National Campaign to Stop Violence (NCSV), the program focuses on Action, Bravery, and Compassion, comprising the ABCs. The program targets 6-12 year-old kids and involves Globetrotter players discussing the three key words in the ABCs and tools that kids can use on a daily basis to reduce bullying. The Globetrotters equate what it means to be part of a team to how kids can offer support to one another to help stop bullying.
Students frequently cite bullying as a cause of violence that they experience, and the rate at which kids are reporting this cause is increasing. We hope that by reaching these kids early in their lives, they might be taught valuable lessons in character and empathy from the positive role models of the Harlem Globetrotters.
