Kindness matters at BCPS! Our students from Kindergarten to grade 6 engaged in creating a kindness rock garden for Mental Health Awareness Week. Every student designed a rock for our garden with the guidance of our Kindness leaders. This week our students from various grades were invited to watch a play performed by our very own primary students. Our students who are in the core french program were able to demonstrate their French language skills and what they have acquired this year! Another school wide initiative was our luv 2 groove performance, which allowed students to demonstrate their enjoyment of the Arts, in the area of dance.

What a great first week of school! Educators and students were excited to get the school year started.
