A Message from the Principal
It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome students, staff and families to the start of the 2019-2020 school year. The start of a new school year is always a time to envision the many opportunities our students will experience in order to enhance their social, emotional and academic growth. These opportunities may include mainstreaming, securing an internship, or utilizing updated technology to help meet academic goals. The main focus is to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate life after graduation. For that reason, my staff members work closely with students, families and local districts to assure that transition goals are implemented and achieved. It is evident, form success stories I have witnessed, that exceptional work is being done in BCSS programs. I plan to support that work with my experience as we look forward to continued growth.
Thank you for allowing me to work with your children. I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you throughout the school year.
