Due to the threat of severe weather during peak transportation times and the current road closures across the city, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System will be closing all schools and offices tomorrow, Friday, May 10, 2019. Stay safe!
We were hoping for a Louisiana weather surprise 180 degree turnaround, but unfortunately, that is not in the forecast for this week.
Sadly, we will have to cancel the Spring Picnic scheduled for tomorrow. Because of our tight schedule and all other upcoming events between now and the end of school, we will not reschedule this event. The parent training on CyberSafety that was to follow the Spring Concert will be postponed until the fall.
Three bits of a good news:
On Tuesday, May 7th, Elsie's Plate & Pie will be hosting a fundraiser night for our very own Destination Imagination State Champions, the Mon-Stars, to help them get to the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Kansas City!!!
Anyone who has ever been to Elsie's knows that their food is out-of-this-world and a treat all on its own! If you've never been, now's your chance to see what all the hype is about! This is the definition of a win-win for everyone involved!
Come treat your taste buds, and support our kids as they journey to the pinnacle of STEM based competition and compete against teams from all over the U.S. and the WORLD!!
The teachers have loved receiving your ASTRONOMICAL TEACHER TAGS! The students were precious walking with their deliveries this morning. Keep the notes coming, and continue the smiles! Thanks to kindergarten and pre-k for sending drinks, and thanks to all of you who have sent snacks and donations for the week. We still have some open volunteer slots for the cafeteria and teachers' galactic oasis, so if you have some free time this week, click below to sign up:
Dear BRCVPA Families,
As many of you may have heard, or read, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System is making budgetary cuts across the district. As this takes place, I wanted to take a moment to let you know that while some individuals at BRCVPA have been impacted, there will not be any changes to our magnet program. All BRCVPA students will continue to receive instruction in both the academics and the arts (dance, drama, visual art, vocal/instrumental music, physical education, creative writing, library, etc.) from certified and highly qualified teachers. The district agrees that the arts is an integral part of the BRCVPA program, and they have done everything in their power to ensure the sustainability of our magnet program.
Have a great Baton Rouge Center Day!
Don't miss out on a chance to get a 2018-2019 BRCVPA yearbook. They have been shipped and are on the way to BRCVPA! We only have 34 copies left, so if you are planning on purchasing a yearbook, click here to download the order form: http://www.brcvpa.com/blog/2018-2019-yearbooks-order-yours-today
Note: Yearbook payments are no longer available on-line. Cash, checks, or money orders may be sent to school with your child. Orders will be filled on a first come, first serve basis until the supply runs out.
All students who purchase a yearbook will be invited to attend the yearbook signing party on Friday, May 10th. If a "family" yearbook was purchased, it will be given to the oldest student, but all students in the family will be invited to attend the yearbook signing party.
