Dear BRCVPA Family, This past week, we had two students at our school experience a house fire. They have lost everything, and are in desperate need of basic household items. Below is a list from one family, and the list from the other family will be forthcoming. Anything that you have, new or used, they will appreciate as they work to rebuild their lives. We are all blessed that everyone is safe, and the only things lost were material belongings that can be replaced.
Thank you to everyone for being the most amazing BRCVPA family! We have always come together when one of our own is in need, and that is what makes this place so special! Please send donations to the office, or email Mrs. Hartley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ms. Crumholt (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Our very own 5th grader, Kelly F., participated in the Louisiana Elementary Math Olympiad competition this weekend.

Your entire BRCVPA family is extremely proud of you.
