2011-2012 is finally here!

This past Sunday marked the formal beginning of new staff orientation at BFIS and that means the year is officially under way! We are extremely fortunate to have an outstanding group of caring, passionate and talented educators joining our faculty in the coming year. Collectively, they bring a wealth of experience from a broad array of backgrounds that will be an immeasurable gift to the community.

After a summer of sending ideas back and forth through emails and chats about professional literature being read or new strategies we were learning in different workshops, we are excited to come together as a faculty and get the year started. Little by little, boxes are being unpacked, tables are being arranged, classroom libraries are getting organized and the voices of teachers are filling what was recently a quiet space. In a little over two weeks, the children will arrive and at last the campus will feel complete.

Welcome to the ES Blog
