WELCOME from the Principal
Haawka (Hello) BICS Families!
We are very eager to begin this new year and have a chance to either reconnect with or get to know your child for the first time. We are committed to providing even greater social and academic experiences for our students. The following information will inform you on some new happenings and some things we have in store for your child at BICS.
First, we would like to welcome two new teachers on board. Ms. West will be taking over in our 5/6 classroom and Ms. Baker is the new teacher in our Middle School class. Both teachers come to us with fantastic experience and strong recommendations! We also want to wish Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. Ferguson all the best on their next exciting endeavors!
At BICS, we are committed to constantly refining and improving our practices. While we continue to benefit from previous initiatives such as Peacebuilders, The Power of Engagement, Growth Mindset, and Visible Learning for Teachers, we continue to refine our practices. In July teachers attended a 3 day conference sponsored by Eureka Math, our CCSS aligned curriculum. We will also embark on a study of the work of Dan St. Romain who is widely acknowledged as a leader in the area of Socioemotional support for all students.
As always, we will be looking forward to working with our families throughout the year. We are also always happy to meet new families, provide tours of our beautiful campus, and share the great things that are happening here at BICS. If you or anyone you know has an interest in becoming a part of Barona Indian Charter School, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us!
Here’s to a great year at BICS!
