Roller Coaster Sharks

Ever hear of a roller coaster shark?

That was Ms. Harrison and the University of California- Santa Cruz Class of 2028, performing a celebratory cheer after practicing some strong handshakes during morning meeting.

One of our many ambitious goals for this year is to capture and communicate the dedication, joy, and collaboration that provides the foundation for the hard work that happens at Blackstone Valley Prep every day. With a longer school day and a longer school year, it's important to celebrate learning as a not only rigorous, but fun and exciting process.

You have received our new email updates, visited our revamped website (shout-out to BVP Parent Chris Horvath for volunteering to help with this work), and enjoyed weekly blog musings courtesy of Executive Director Jeremy Chiappetta.

Communication is a vital part of what we do because it allows us to connect with scholars and families and engage meaningfully with fellow educators and community members who also care deeply about this work.

Not to mention, who doesn't love watching NECAP celebrations at which the Head of School dresses up as Lady Gaga to motivate scholars?  Or teachers impersonate celebrities just to see their kids smile before rolling up their sleeves to take a tough test?

This is work we can look forward to celebrating all year.
