BVSD Parent Snapshot Surveys coming in February (online) and March (mailed)

BVSD Parent Snapshot Surveys coming in February (online) and March (mailed)

Dear Families,

As you may have already noticed,

BVSD surveys students, parents and staff each year in order to gather information that can be used to guide efforts to improve schools. The survey of parents is called the “Parent Snapshot Survey” and parents will be receiving it in the next few weeks. We hope all parents and guardians will take a moment to complete and return this survey. The more parents who participate, the more accurately the survey data will reflect parents’ perceptions and opinions. The survey results are reviewed by school staff to determine what programs and processes are working and which ones need improvement. Consequently, the survey results can have a significant impact on school operations.

The Parent Snapshot Survey will be administered online for all parents who have provided an email address to their student’s school and who receive all communication in English. This supports a greener and more cost effective process by reducing the amount of paper used, mailing cost, and data entry required. We also hope this will increase the parent participation rate. Online surveys will be sent by email the week of February 2 to only one email address per household.  If you don’t see an invitation in your “inbox,” please check other email addresses you have given the school.

If there is not an email address associated with your household or if your primary language is Spanish, you will receive a survey via U.S. postal service consistent with last year. Paper surveys will be mailed at the beginning of March.

Pancake Breakfast

Pancake Breakfast

Our annual Pancake Breakfast community-building, fun, festive, enjoyable and tasty event is on February 5.  

It begins at 7:00-7:15 AM (okay to start lining up ahead of time)  and we serve until students need to be in classes at 8:20 AM.  The menu consists of regular and gluten free pancakes as well as a peanut free offering, turkey sausage, fruit compote, butter, maple syrup and a full beverage cart- coffee, decaf, tea and orange juice.

Let us serve you and your children!  This is a great way to start the day, especially if your student is having a winter sports day!  Feel free to wear your jammies.

If you have any questions, call Hope.
