Good afternoon, BWA Family!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This week is sure to be a great one as we continue the BWA Day tradition! Last week we had a successful test simulation! Doing this is truly helpful and necessary to do before the actual testing day. We have just 6 short days until the ELA state test! Last year we had 16% (a jump from the previous year 6%) proficiency on the exam and I am confident that will increase this year! Our students have been working hard all year and these tests serve as an opportunity to showcase their analytical skills. We recognize that this may bring anxiety for many of our students so we ask in the next week to offer them encouraging words and support as you always do. We believe in their abilities and know they will put their best foot forward as they do each day! Below are the updates for the week.

Weekly Update:

  1. STEM Grant and Robotics!: I am happy to announce that we will shortly be receiving Robotics equipment so that we can host Robotics classes for our students. We are so excited as we believe that this is a great opportunity for our students. More information to follow soon.
  2. Influential Women Essay Contest! Please be reminded that March's essay competition ends tomorrow! Please have your children submit essays to Ms. Walker, Ms. Matos or Ms. Capers by March 20th!
