I heart BFIS
During the past ten years, many things have changed in the elementary school.  Although I am naturally biased, I am confident that the work accomplished by our faculty over this period of time leaves the school is in a much stronger place than when I arrived in 2006.

With that said, I am equally convinced that the best is yet to come.  For the first time, BFIS will have completed a building from the foundation up and the elementary school happens to be the lucky inhabitants.  Additionally, the introduction of new leaders at an important time will provide unique and fresh perspectives in helping guide our ongoing pursuit of the school mission.

I am very grateful for everything that BFIS has given to me over the last decade.  An invaluable professional experience.  Unforgettable relationships.  The opportunity to live in my favorite city.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, BFIS.

Sincerely,

James

K/1st Overnight Trip Update

Written by Lila Jorge. Posted in 1st Grade, ES Principal, Kindergarten

Other than the wi-fi being spotty, life is great!  My apologies for not posting last night – I literally walked around all the buildings at midnight to try and get a strong enough signal to post photos.

 

We are getting dressed and starting up with the day. Fingers crossed – there is no rain!

You’l’ll be happy to know the kids have all been eating extremely well. In fact, yesterday at lunch we cancelled the dessert because the kids were so full after the first two courses.

We are planning on arriving back around 3:00 pm.  We look forward to seeing you then!

 

K/1st Overnight Trip Update!

Written by Lila Jorge. Posted in 1st Grade, ES Principal, Kindergarten

Just a quick snapshot to show that we are in a stunning location, the weather is cooperating more than enough for us to get outside, and, most importantly, we are having an amazing time!  I’d prefer not to spend the experience inside typing on a computer, which means I am off to rejoin the kids.  But, I thought all of you would appreciate a quick update with a few snapshots.

I will try to add more photos later tonight when we start to settle in for bed!
