BVP Hosts Community Breakfast

Executive Director, Jeremy Chiappetta, addressing
guests at last week's community breakfast. 
       On Friday, March 11th, over 35 community stakeholders, including business owners and elected officials, joined parents, teachers, and scholars at Blackstone Valley Prep for a morning of networking, learning, and a taste of Elementary School 2's Community Circle!

       The majority of our guests were with us for the very first time. They had the opportunity to hear BVP's Executive Director tell our story as well as hear direct testimony from parents and scholars about their experience as members of the Blackstone Valley Prep family.

       While it was great to be able to share BVP's

personal experiences with BVP.
accomplishments, it was just as important to create a sense of urgency around the state of RI’s education and how critical it is that we all work together to improve Rhode Island's educational landscape, which is an important part of BVP's vision statement.


       Shortly after the breakfast, we received a note from one of our attendees, Paul Martineau of the Employers Association of the North East, 

“I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and was inspired by all areas of the experience…the students are remarkable, the faculty conveys total dedication to success, and overall, Blackstone Valley Prep demonstrates how 'Great' education can be!”

       We hope this is the beginning of many more conversations and we value the willingness of any and all community stakeholders who engage with us in discussing the future of our small, but mighty state.
