Week of Welcome

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,


Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! The teachers and staff here at Bear Valley Middle School are excited to begin this school year with you. We want to welcome our returning as well as new students and families in a way that will bring our whole school together, communicate our school values, and help us start the school year off right! Research shows that when students feel connected to their school community they are more successful. We are starting the school year with the intent of increasing our relationships and building a positive school culture. At Bear Valley Middle School we’re committed to supporting ALL of our students as they work towards their educational and personal goals.


Our theme for the 2018-2019 school year is: Connect with your heart!. Our students are valued members of the BVMS “family”, and we are excited to see them grow into young adults as they participate in the many opportunities our school has to offer. This theme will be incorporated into workshops, rotations and teambuilding activities. Our three days of “Week of Welcome” will have a modified schedule.


As a part of our “Week of Welcome”, we are working on creating a community together. The students will be participating in teambuilding activities each day and we will be having a ton of fun! On Friday we will end our “Week of Welcome” with a school wide party that includes ice cream and music!


We are so excited to start the school year off with a bang!


Welcome to the “Den”,


Susan Freeman

Principal
