Back to School, Fall, 2019
Hello Blue Ridge Families,
It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 19-20 school year at Blue Ridge Elementary, home of the Eagles. We have a fun filled year of learning ahead of us, where students continue to grow on their journey as scholars and lifelong learners. As an “Eagle” we dream big and prepare all students to soar into their next adventure.
Blue Ridge Elementary prides itself on embracing the best educational practices while providing a safe and nurturing learning environment so all students experience success. The staff at Blue Ridge ensure that all students receive high quality instruction both in academics and social and emotional learning to meet the needs of each and every student. As we move into the 19-20 school year, staff will continue to dedicate their focus on improving learning for all students through collaboration, aligned curricula, data collection and assessment. Each student at Blue Ridge brings strengths to our community, and we will use these to build the foundation for their educational journey.
As a Blue Ridge community we view parents as an essential partner in building a positive and successful path for the students we serve. We encourage parents, guardians and family members to volunteer because together we can accomplish anything. With this in mind, please consider joining our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to help in supporting all our students and families. Our PTA is a valuable ally that provides support to the great community of Blue Ridge.
As I serve as the Blue Ridge principal I know that to reach our greatest heights we must have strong partnerships with families and community. I am looking forward to meeting students, families, and staff of Blue Ridge. Please feel free to seek me out and introduce yourself as we move into the upcoming school year. It is essential that all feel welcome at Blue Ridge, and we serve our community in the best way possible.
We appreciate your continued support as we move into the new year. We invite you to visit Blue Ridge to get to know our school and community. Thank you for entrusting us with your students, they are the reason we are here. We look forward to seeing everyone at our Back-To-School Night on Aug. 28th from 3:30 to 5:30, where you can meet new staff, drop off school supplies, tour the building and enjoy a treat!
Looking forward to seeing you soon and another successful year at Blue Ridge Elementary!
Justin Vernon, Principal
