September 18, 2017 – Parents, students and family members were welcomed to all BCSD schools last week to celebrate the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. Each school opened up their campuses and classrooms for Back to School Night events that gave parents the opportunity to meet with teachers, sit in the classrooms and take a tour of the school sites.
Richard Martinez, parent at Pioneer Elementary said, “We are here to learn about the academic performance of our son. Children are like a sponge, we have to teach them and help them to be prepared for the future.”
Russell Taylor, Principal at Chipman Junior High, was celebrating his 14th Back to School night at the school. When asked about the event, he said, “Back to school night is the cherry on top of an excellent beginning to the school year. The parents can meet and interact with the teachers and staff and see how sincere we are about their child’s academic success.”
Parents and guardians who were unable to attend the Back to School Night events are encouraged to continue communicating with their child’s teacher(s) to help support the student’s overall success.
