as one of the 10 LCPS elementary schools receiving the Virginia Index of Performance (VIP) Excellence award.
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! As we begin another school year, I would like to welcome our new and returning families. This year we will continue to celebrate our successes and gear up to make this an even better school year for our students, staff and community. Our commitment to excellence will continue to be our cornerstone as we work to strengthen our collaborative relationship to make a difference for our students.
This coming school year will be very exciting as we welcome many new and some familiar faces to our staff. We are thrilled to welcome the following teachers to our BeST staff.
KDG: Mrs. Brenda Wright
Fourth: Ms. Kelly Sullivan, Ms. Kyhlie McLaughlin, Ms. Jennifer Benzie
Special Education: Ms. Lan Nguyen
Art: Ms. Lisa Stogoski
Support Staff: Sarah Green, Valerie Chandler
It was wonderful to see so many parents at Back to School Night. Our teachers had an opportunity to share classroom routines, procedures and expectations for the school year. Equally pleasing was to see the excitement on the faces of our students during Open House. Our staff has great plans for the very BeST school year!
Please remember to exercise patience in the car line during arrival and dismissal. Safety is always a priority so please make sure students are ready to exit their vehicles along the curb. Additional help will be available the first week to remind everyone of the procedures and expectations.
Finally, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our fantastic PTA for organizing our Back to School supply order, hosting our Welcome Back staff luncheon, planning the afterschool programs, securing volunteers for the first week of school, stuffing first day packets, and financing new STEM supplies and non fiction reading materials for our students. Our PTA does so much for our school; we can’t say thank you enough for the many things they do to support our students and school. We hope you will plan to join the PTA for the upcoming school year.
We are more than ready to get started on the way to an awesome 2015-2016 school year! Remember to follow us on Twitter @BSTelementary.
