From the BAIS Secondary Principal’s Desk

Dear BAIS Community,

As we wind down the first semester of the school year and swing into the season celebrating the birth of our savior, I find it quite fitting to focus on the great achievements of our students and community.

Let’s start with the most important members of our community. The reason we do what we do – the students!

Additionally, the hard work of our students paid off in honor roll statistics.

After analyzing our student results on the SAT, AP, and MAP standardized assessments, I’m please to announce the following.

Also, let’s not forget the following partial list of university acceptances The Class of 2017 received.

Our students are doing well! Keep up the good work!

As a community, I want to congratulate you all – students, teachers, and parents, on successfully navigating the change from Renweb and TeacherEase to PowerSchool. Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot of positive reports from students related to the ease in accessing scores on assessments, keeping up with homework assignments, and the ability to interact and communicate with their teacher and their content. I am excited to see us all continue to excel with the help of PowerSchool second semester.

It is a privilege and I am humbled to serve and lead the secondary division at BAIS. Let’s keep up the good work and continue seeking to grow together during 2018!

Merry Christmas,
Mr. Jeremy Thomas
Secondary Principal

WEEK WITHOUT WALLS

Dear Students & Parents, Week Without Walls (WWW) is coming up in March! WWW is a time when all BAIS students serve the community and the Lord. It’s an exciting event!

We want to ask our students, parents, and the community for suggestions. Do you have an idea for a service project which BAIS students could participate in? Are you connected to an outreach or project which BAIS could help? We want to know!

We are looking for any and all ideas of service projects! You won’t be expected to help with any project you suggest, so please just send any ideas you have!

We need projects for elementary groups, middle school groups, and high school groups. Also, if you would like to contribute in any other way (food donations, supplies, etc), please let us know as well.
