Greetings Parents and Students,

We hope everyone's summer is going well. On Thursday, August 21st at 10:00 AM, BSEA will host another orientation for new students. It is a mandatory orientation for the students as they will also take an assessment to start the year. BSEA is using Curriculum Associates' i-Ready program to assess and develop student literacy. It is a web or online application that exercises and develops students' literacy skills. To start, students will take an assessment that determines their literacy strengths and areas of focus. Our teachers will use this information to carefully and purposefully develop and modify lesson plans that suits our students' needs. While students are completing the assessment with our teachers, parents will hear more from Principal DeFilippis regarding the start of the school year procedures. It is important that students participate on this assessment day so that we can all start the school year fully prepared.

We look forward to seeing everyone at this orientation.
