Welcome Back from our PTA Co-Presidents

On behalf of your PTA, we’d like to welcome you all back to school. Normally at this time of year, we’d be meeting you all at Welcome Days, Back to School Nights, and any number of other face-to-face community events. And while those traditions don’t 100% translate to our strange new virtual world, as a PTA we are determined to find ways to adapt; to build different but equally meaningful interactions that bring our BA family together and help ensure the rich, whole child experience for which BA is well known.

My focus in on engaging students in authentic learning experiences that include collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, communication and citizenship.  I thrive on working with a diverse group of educators, parents, and students towards a common goal and vision that is innovative, engaging, and collaborative and focuses on educating the whole child.
