Dear Elementary School Families,
It brings me great pleasure to welcome all of you to the 2015-2016 school year. We are absolutely thrilled to maintain our position as one of the most culturally diverse communities in Barcelona and a place where students experience joy and success on a daily basis.
Over the past couple months we have been working extremely hard in preparation for the short and long term future. We continue to have new families join our school, which in turn has left us at full capacity in terms of enrollment. Additionally, we have recruited a handful of outstanding new faculty members, all of whom are very proud to join BFIS and prepared to support our Three C’s – Character, Curriculum, and Community. Finally, it comes as no surprise that perhaps the most significant development is the ongoing construction of the new elementary school building. While our faculty has always optimized the space on campus, there is no denying that the learning environment will be vastly improved by this undertaking.
As I start my tenth year as the Elementary School Principal, I can honestly say that I have never been more excited to be part of the community. BFIS is truly a unique and inspiring place that offers learning experiences that transcend the typical school experience. At all levels, thought provoking questions are asked, opinions and ideas are openly shared, and, most importantly, meaningful relationships are formed in a way that bring us closer to one another.
On behalf of the entire elementary school faculty, we hope that all of you have a wonderful start to the new year and greatly look forward to seeing you soon.
