FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

Step with care and great tact, and remember that life's a great balancing act. ~ Dr. Seuss


We've made it through our first full week of Continuous Learning 2.0 at Bainbridge High School, and we can see clear evidence that our students and teachers are getting in the flow of online learning.  We also realize that this model places the "heavy lifting" onto the shoulders of students and teachers in a whole new way.  In an effort to support the work that our students and teachers have been engaged in, we are reaching out to parents and guardians in new ways as well.  
First, we would love your quick feedback on what is working for your family so far, and what areas we might improve.  Please click the link below to take a short survey.
Second, please  join us next Tuesday night at 7pm for our Fall BHS Parent & Guardian Webinar Series. Mark your calendar, tune in, and stay informed. Dates and topics are outlined in the document linked below.  
We know that supporting high school students learning from home is a balancing act for you  and recognize that your partnership and feedback is vital to our collective success. 
Thank YOU for stepping with care and great tact.   
With appreciation ~ Kristen Haizlip, Principal
