Welcome to Bull Run Elementary!
August 18, 2014
Dear Bull Run Families,
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year - we are so excited about all of the promise it holds! As we gear up for this new year, we will be sending out lots of information in many different ways (i.e. KIT, BRES website, and in letter form). It is our goal to be as informative as possible to make the transition into the new school year as smooth as possible.
Bull Run’s excellent teaching staff and support personnel share the responsibility for student achievement and embrace our moral imperative to prepare all students for successful futures. Our goal is to provide rigor, relevance, and strong relationships for every student. We aim to support each child in achieving his/her limitless potential by cultivating an intrinsic sense of worth, curiosity, and love of learning.
Our theme this year, Cruise into the 21st Century, is aligned with the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate – focused on innovative new strategies and tools to help students succeed in meeting the challenges of the 21st century. We strive to provide equitable opportunities for all students to become global thinkers who are collaborative, communicative, resilient, creative, and critical thinkers.
If there is something going on that you feel may impact your child's success or focus at school, please communicate with your child's teacher, an administrator, or another staff member. We are all here to support you and your child in the pursuit of excellence.
Each new school year arrives with so much anticipation and excitement. New teachers, new classmates, and new class dynamics present an amazing opportunity for learning and growing. We hope that you will join us for our Open House (August 28: 2:00pm-3:30pm) and our Back-to-School Night (September 10th - 6:30-8:00PM) to meet your child’s teacher and stay informed and involved.
We will be mailing a Welcome Back letter during the week of August 25th, which will have your child’s class placement (and teacher assignment), as well as other pertinent information that you will need to start the school year.
August 28: Open House (2:00pm - 3:30pm)
September 2: First Day of School
September 10: K-6 Back To School Night (6:30pm-8:00pm)
