Our October Star Celebration will be Trunk or Treat in the BRCVPA parking lot!
We are looking for parents willing to decorate their trunks and hand out candy for the event. Can't make it? No worries! You can still participate by donating individually wrapped candy or small toys to be handed out to the students.
Please note: due to time/space constraints, only parents with "trunks" will be able to attend. If you want to combine with a friend and share a trunk, that is fine!
More details to come, but we defintiely need volunteers to make this happen!
Several of our BRCVPA Super Stars will be in Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre's production of the Nutcracker: Tale from the Bayou this holiday season.

Tomorrow, September 20, 2023, has been changed to a FULL Academic Day. It is NOT early dismissal. School hours will be 8:00 am to 3:40 pm.
We have completed our trial of Klassly, and based on parent and teacher feedback, we have decided to discontinue its use, and return to ClassTag, which we have used in the past.
ClassTag is our new communication tool we’ll be using this school year to keep you up-to-date about what’s going on at BRCVPA and in your students’ classrooms.
The main benefit of ClassTag is ease of communication. It does not require you to have the app. You can receive emails and texts directly to your chosen email address or phone number and respond right from your inbox!
You should begin receiving communications from ClassTag via email or SMS text message. It is important that you activate your account so you can select your language and communication preferences.
Please click on the link via text message, or click on the orange button in a ClassTag email to finalize your ClassTag account - so we can connect in your preferred language and channel.
You do not need a class code, or to go through difficult steps to sign up! Ms. Vicknair has created all of the classes, and you will be receiving emails very soon. Here's a quick video, but if you need assistance, please email BRCVPA@ebrschools.org.
Download the EBR School System App from the App Store. Skip the registration part and go to additional apps. Select BRCVPA from the dropdown. Menu. Be sure to enable push notifications!
