In an effort to streamline the Transportation routes and procedures for the 2022-2023 school year, the Transportation Department is requesting that all families who think they will use EBR Bus Transportation for their child for next year complete this form by March 31st! This will help them to provide accurate bus manifests, and bus stops that make sense for families. We hope that you will take this opportunity and complete this form as soon as possible. Click the image below to enroll! You will enter your child's CURRENT grade and SCHOOL (they will be rolled over to their 2022-2023 school automatically).
We are thrilled to officially announce our Inaugural Spring Celebration, and to post the details for the T-Shirt Design Contest! We can't wait to share this fun event with you and your kids!
Cap & Gown pictures for Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 5th Grade AND K/5 Buddy pictures are THIS FRIDAY!
You should have received envelopes via your child, but just in case you did not, the flyers are attached below. You can also pay online (deadline is Thursday 3/31 at @ 2:00 p.m.): http://spencerstudios-br.com/OrderOnline
Students do not need to wear anything other than their school uniform! Caps and Gowns will be provided by Spencer Studios, and their uniforms will not be seen. BRCVPA School Spirit Shirts would be cute for the Buddy Pic; regular maroon polos would also work.
PLEASE NOTE: Tomorrow will be a Virtual/Remote Learning Day. Your child's teachers will communicate with you via ClassTag or Google Classroom to let your children know what to work on. Be advised that devices were sent home with some grade levels and work packets with others.
*Not every teacher uses Google Classroom, so please stay tuned to ClassTag for announcements.
Spring and inspiration are bursting from the walls in the Arts Building! Current 2nd grade student Kate Norsworthy's sweet grandmother, "Mimi", has created a quilt full of color, shapes, patterns, rhythm, and inspiring words. The quilt is currently on display outside of Ms. A's Art classroom. Her masterpiece is surrounded by the artwork of our "budding artists"! A HUGE thank you to Kate Norsworthy and her family for sharing their quilt with us!
We are super excited about our Kindergarten mini-production next Thursday, March 31, 2022!
Title: Change Sings
Date: Thursday, March 31, 2022
Join us on a journey based on the children's book "Change Sings" by author Amanda Gorman where a young girl leads a cast of characters on a musical journey, and they learn that they have the power to make changes—big or small—in the world around them, in their local communities, and most importantly, in themselves!
Please remember that this program will be live streamed only (parents and visitors are not able to be on campus to watch the performance in person) using the link below.
Based on the latest weather forecasts and guidance from state and local agencies, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System will dismiss early on Tuesday, March 22.
All elementary schools will dismiss at 12:45 p.m. After-school activities will also be canceled. NO EXTENDED DAY TOMORROW!!
All students must go home by either carpool or bus. Please expect longer carpool lines than usual and plan to be in the carpool line well before 12:45.
The safety and security of our students and staff are our top priority.
Please stay tuned to local news outlets, ebrschools.org and the EBR Schools Facebook page (@EBRPschools) for more information.
We are so thankful for our Kindergarten families! The faculty and staff absolutely loved the treats in the lounge last Friday! Thank you so much!
