March Newsletter: Standards Based Grading, Brain Blizzard, Robotics Camps, and START.

President's Message We are heading into the last quarter of school and still have some fun and informative events coming up!

But first, thank you to everyone who attended our Summer Opportunities Fair this past month! We had a record turnout and are looking forward to even bigger and better fair next year. We've now posted information about all the camps in our Facebook group in case you weren't able to make it.

Our next meeting is this Friday, March 6th from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Hilltop Conference Center. We've had several parents raise questions and concerns about the new standards based grading system in elementary school, so we invited members of the Blue Valley Curriculum and Instruction team to our meeting to shed some light on the changes this year. Thank you to those who submitted questions ahead of time to help guide our discussion. 

This year's Brain Blizzard is on April 4th and there's still time to register! All gifted Blue Valley 7th and 8th graders are welcome. See the flyer below for more information and click here to register. 


Also, Robotics Camps registration is open and we still have a few slots open. Check out the information and register here.

We are also excited to host one last evening meeting on April 9th. We are partnering with START (Stand Together and Rethink Technology) to discuss strategies on navigating the impact of technology on our kids and helping them more responsible digital citizens. 

We hope to see you at one or all of these events!  Amy Gallentine BVPAGE President Upcoming Meetings and Events:
