Dear BWA parents,

This past weekend we kicked off Saturday Academy and it was a huge success. We had 115 students present and learning on a Saturday morning! Our student participation embodies our PEN values. Thank you to all parents who helped ensure their children participated! Students have two marking periods to improve their grades and just a few short weeks to prepare for the state exams. We have data that shows what they know and what they need support with so we can truly help address their needs. The month of March should be devoted to attacking those needs and pushing our students to the next level! Below are the updates for the week.

We are happy to announce Last Friday's Ice Skating trip had one of the largest number of participants ever for a school-wide trip! Thanks to all the teachers and parents who went to support and chaperone! Opportunities like these provide students experiences that build resilience!

This week at BWA:

  • There will be an SLT meeting Tuesday at 4pm at MS 327 for a Title I Meeting.
  • We will be hosting parent computer classes beginning on Thursday evening from 6-9. Please reach out to main office or use this link to register.
  • Friday's Donut Day: On Friday, donuts will be given out for the first 150 students who arrive to school with BWA bucks.
  • Saturday Academy continues this Saturday, March 10.
  • Free Adult Education Classes. Come Register Saturday mornings at 9am on the first floor of campus.

Please refer to our School Calendar tab for continued updates on school happenings.

May you all have a great start to your week!
