The Arts classes are preparing for the first nine week's Sharing Sessions. Sharing Sessions are an informal look into the arts and physical education classrooms. Each class will demonstrate something they've experienced during the nine weeks. This is a time when parents, friends, and family can see how we integrate the arts into our instructional day. Due to time constraints, students will not participate in every activity, but will participate in at least one. Sharing Sessions are a great way to learn about the exciting things happening in our arts classes. We hope to see you in the auditorium at your specified grade level time.
Please join us this Sunday, starting at 9 a.m., to spruce up the entrance to the school. We will be planting a liriope border along the walkways and spreading mulch over the bare ground under the trees. Bring a shovel and trowel (and wheelbarrow) if you have them. If you have a pickup truck and would be willing to help pick up the plants on Saturday, please contact Jessica Eberhard (email@example.com). Cost of the plants was covered by PTO funds, but if you would like to contribute toward the purchase of mulch, please let Jessica know; any amount is welcome. You may also drop off a bag of dark brown mulch to the front office. Thank you! The weather forecast looks gorgeous this weekend, and this is the perfect excuse to get outside to enjoy it!
Don't forget to wear your BRCVPA spirit shirt! All students who attend can wear their tie-dye shirts to school on Thursday, October 8th.
Our #1 Fund Raiser ends on Friday. Don't forget to turn in your orders.
Have a great Baton Rouge Center Day!
Ms. Wells uses sport stacking to enhance rudimentary motor skills such as hand-eye coordination and ambidexterity as well as quickness and concentration.

Thank you parent volunteers for coming out to make our PBIS Fun Friday a huge success! We had several sports stations set up: basketball, football, soccer, and cheerleading! Students who earned 25 Starbucks were able to participate and enjoy the fun! They even received a Louisiana State University sports poster to take home!
Ms. Burkhalter received a call from an "old" student. He is now a junior in high school, but still remembers his Kindergarten year. He came by to visit and took some time to read to her new friends.
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude,. Please take a moment to thank a teacher today!
We celebrated Family Literacy Night this week, and it was a lot of fun! Parents, grandparents, students, and little brothers and sisters attended and participated in the activities.

Super Science Saturday (SSS) is a free Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education event for students in kindergarten to 12th grade, parents, and anyone interested in seeing science in action. SSS is sponsored by LSU Chemistry, the Baton Rouge local section of the American Chemical Society (ACS), and LSU Athletics.
SSS is held each Fall, usually around National Chemistry Week. This year there will be 19 stations with hands-on demonstrations and activities to engage students and adults alike. Each K-12 student that attends is given a Passport at the check-in area that has blocks for each of the activity stations. When the student visits the station and participates in the activities the Passport is stamped. After visiting all the activity stations located around the concourse level of the PMAC they will receive some small gifts at the check-out area. Many regional K-12 teachers give students with a fully-stamped Passport some bonus points for attending and learning some science – so students should hang on to their Passports if that is the case.
The event is free, but we are collecting non-perishable food items (and/or monetary donations) for the Baton Rouge Food Bank.
The organizer of the event is Prof. George Stanley (LSU Chemistry, phone: 225-578-3471, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org). Please contact him for more information or questions about Super Science Saturday. Information is also posted on the LSU Chemistry website.
Our 1st Girls on the Run meeting was a huge success! We had lots of fun getting to know our team members and learning to encourage each other.
We want to give a HUGE thank you to Club South Runners for the use of their tracking wheel to chart our course and to Tom Townsend, owner of The Bicycle Shop, for donating water bottles for each of the girls. Thank you for supporting us. We are looking forward to a great season.
In celebration of Arts In Education Week, we had two special performances for our students at recess. Members of the band played Pharrell's "Happy", and the Jump Jive and Giggle seniors performed a tinikling routine to Jennifer Lopez's "Let's Get Loud".

In our art travels, fifth grade artists visited Poland. They studied the geography, culture, and art. they studied about wycinanki - traditional Polish paper cuts. Paper cuts begin with a contour shape of an object, then details are added with smaller pieces of paper - painting with paper. To join our two cultures, artists created wycinanki using symbols from Louisiana. We definitely have talented artists at BRCVPA!!
