Welcome to BCVES
Greetings Pelican Parents and Families!
I am honored and delighted to be part of BCVES soaring into its second year! It is especially rewarding to know that we launched our stand-alone virtual elementary school quickly, and we have enjoyed great adventures in our inaugural year such as inductions into our virtual honor club, Principal’s League, virtual field trips, a drive-through Halloween parade, and student academic growth in reading as evidenced by STAR Reading scores. Join us as we embrace “Innovation” in the 2021-2022 school year to “Empower Independent Learners and Leaders.”
Virtual learning takes a strong collaborative effort between families, learning partners, students, school and the community in order to create an educational environment where students can thrive. BCVES offers opportunities to for parents and learning partners to work closely with teachers and staff to address any needs students may encounter. Our strong technology department is always available to help, and teachers provide both digital and in person tutoring in case students need that extra boost.
During this new school year, we will continue our focus on achieving academic success for every student, in every classroom through flexible learning opportunities. We will continue to accomplish this task through our collective concentration on standards-based instruction designed to foster student success when students are:
- Fully engaged in the work of the lessons as evidenced by turning in assigned work on time
- Taking ownership of their learning by attending live lessons and tutoring sessions when needed
- Demonstrating understanding of the content by performing on state mandated assessments
With that being said, I look forward to family’s involvement in Leader in Me for families, PTA, parent workshops, school events, home learning and other school-sponsored activities, because we realize that the success of every child is greatly increased through the collaborative efforts of parents, teachers, students, and the community.
Proud to be a Pelican!
