Dear BAIS Family,
I want to just take a moment and update you on where we are at with some of the projects going on at school.
The playground equipment for our new TK playground is here! We are currently in the final stages of preparing the area for installation. Our goal is to be finished with this preparation work by the end of November. PlayPoint will then send a team to install the equipment. Our hope is to have the playground ready for use before the Christmas break. Stay tuned as we will be sending out invitations for a ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration.
Science Lab Upgrade
Our plan is to update our Chemistry/Biology science lab over the Christmas Break. Our goal is to modernize the space and make it more usable for hands-on experimentation while being usable for classroom use as well. We are looking to install six purpose built lab stations that will seat four students each to allow for collaboration and engagement.
Curriculum Review – Science and Fine Arts
Our curriculum review committees have been meeting throughout the semester to establish hallmarks that will lead the curriculum review cycle and have just finished evaluating the standards. They are now working toward identifying resources and textbooks that will help us to reach our goals for the programs. Next semester, we will be excited to share with you the changes that we will be making as we seek to provide both high quality and transformative education for our children.
Public Announcement (PA) System
Finally, over the Christmas break, we will also be installing a new PA system. This system will allow us to more easily and effectively make announcements schoolwide or to specific divisions (elementary/secondary). Additionally, it will allow us to retire our bell system as we will be able to use tones to signal the end of classes or other transitions. This was a much needed upgrade as our old PA system was limited in both its range and flexibility limiting our ability to communicate quickly schoolwide.
Have a blessed weekend!
