Bridging the Home to School Connection

What family means to one BVP Family at ES1.
As a school that strives for and celebrates intentional diversity, culture is very important to us. At the start of every year, schools host a variety of academic and culture nights. These are events designed to bring together schools and families to celebrate our differences, unite as one and support the home to school connection. 

Last night Elementary School 3 (ES3) and Elementary School 1 (ES1) held their culture nights and had a great turnout! At ES3 families and scholars were asked to draw a picture of their families and at ES1 attendees were asked to bring in a family photo and illustrate or write what family meant to them. Staff was on site at ES1 to also share scholar data with families using the STAR assessment results as a forum to discuss progress and how families can continue to support learning at home.

One outcome from the night at both sites was a beautiful mural showing what culture and family at BVP is all about.
