Barnes and Nobles has partnered with BRCVPA to help raise funds for our library. Today, February 24, EVERY customer who mentions BRCVPA while making a purchase, Barnes and Noble will donate a percentage to our school library. Last year, we asked our Variety Show participants to help get our school noticed by performing their fabulous routines. We are continuing that newly established tradition this year and would love for you to come out and show your support!
Saturday, February 24 is the annual Building Blocks: If Kids Ruled the City event, hosted by the Baton Rouge American Institute of Architects. The event is a large scale version of the fourth grade building event held at BRCVPA in December. Bring a shoebox and your imagination to the Capital Park Museum from 10:00-2:00 for a day of STEAM building fun!
It's time to pre-order yearbooks! You can get a priceless collection of this school year's memories for $27.00!
We are sending an order form home in your child's backpack. You can send the completed form with cash, check, or money order in a sealed envelope marked "yearbook."
You can also order your yearbook online. Click the link on the right-hand side of this page, or the button below to order directly from the Josten's Website.
BRCVPA has joined schools across the world to celebrate Digital Learning Day. Digital Learning Day provides a powerful venue for educators to highlight great teaching practice and showcase innovation in utilizing instructional technology programs that improve student outcomes. It emphasizes high-quality instruction and provides access to challenging content, opportunities for learning anytime and anywhere, and individualized instruction. Individualized digital learning is but one way we live out our BRCVPA theme, There's Only One You.
Join us for a full filled day at Barnes and Noble Citiplace on Saturday, February 24th 9 AM - 5 PM. In the morning, Mrs. Dafoe will have makerspace activities in the cafe. In the afternoon, our very talented students will be performing in the store. Choristers and Recorder Percussion will kick off the performances at 1 PM followed by acts from our Variety Show and talented music. This is a great opportunity to show the community who we are and why our school is amazing! It is also a fundraiser for our school library. Barnes and Noble will donate a percentage of the sales to our library so we can purchase new books and add to our makerspace! Can't wait to see you there!
Many thanks to the Secretary of State and Election Operations for letting our students vote for their favorite LYRC book on real voting machines! They enjoyed using the same machines as their parents do! They even received blue dog I voted stickers! Our election results were submitted to the State Library of Louisiana which will announce the statewide winners in the spring.

Kindergarten students had so much fun celebrating the 100th day of school last Friday. Students worked in centers to make a trail mix with 100 snack, did 100 exercises, counted 100 fingers by 5’s, put ice cream scoops in order by 10’s, filled in a 100’s chart with 100 things, and wrote about what they will do when they are 100 years old and what they would do with 100 dollars. The students all looked adorable in their creative 100th Day of School T-shirts and they loved showing off their 100 things to their friends!! They have learned and grown so much in 100 Days of school!!
