Principal's Message

Dear Centaur Friends and Families,

The snow appears to be melting away to warmer weather- finally! With the warmth begins our spring athletics, our theatre production, Once Upon This Island, and our Road to the MCA assessments next month. We believe that all three of these serve as examples that measure the success and capability of our young people at BC. I often speak to our students about the value of making a solid first impression on people we meet. We only have 7 seconds to make that first impression and it should represent our very best. We encourage our students to do their very best each and every day to uphold the best of BC and the best of our community.

Brooklyn Center made a terrific first impression on me last spring and that has only continued to build deeper roots highlighting how special and unique our school is as a community.  To that end, I would like to extend an invitation to each of you to come to learn more about our school; to get involved in the activities of your students; or to come on in to sit down for coffee with me.  I would relish the opportunity to share my love for this place with you. We will be having Coffee with the Principal on Thursday, March 20th at 10 am. I look forward to meeting you.

As usual- I want to highlight some special Centaur moments that have popped up in the past month:

  • The class of 2021 (Earle Brown 5th grade) came to join us for an action-packed visit last week. They were greeted by performers; upperclassmen to answer questions; as well as their future teachers. I look forward to coming down to EB in mid-May to spend an entire day getting to know my future centaurs and their parents. 
  • Our Centaur drummers and dancers dancing this past Friday for the entire middle school student body accompanied by Duniya Drum and Dance, an African Dance/Drum troupe; the group got the audience involved with a crown dance as well…I was struck by the enthusiasm of our audience members, the talent of our performers, and the true celebration of the West African culture.
  •  Pedro Morales entering the media center to a rousing standing ovation from staff as a send off for his state wrestling tournament berth. Congratulations, Pedro.
  •  Our entire middle school launching “Spring into Spring Break,” our PBIS push for Respect that will conclude in our Spring incentive day; the highlight of this experience had to be watching every middle school teacher being filmed dancing in my office for footage for our student video to promote the PBIS push…those middle school teachers can really move!

That’s all for now. Here’s to warm weather, a spring of health and activity, and a strong Spring into Spring Break!
