Principal's Message

November 4, 2014

As I crunched through the fall leaves this past weekend, I couldn’t help but reflect on upcoming conferences as well as the end of one quarter of our school year. Some events that have occurred for us at BCS this fall have made me reflective regarding the students who walk these halls. Our recent designation as a focus school by the state calls to attention that we must focus our work on inspiring our young people to achieve to their highest potential.  I believe that this happens through relationships, engagement, and accountability. Too often we fall victim to setting the bar too low for our students both in our schools and in our community. Our young people are bright, passionate, and civic minded. Do they make mistakes? Absolutely. I believe those mistakes are opportunities for us to continue to deepen our relationships with them. I do not believe in giving up on our students. I believe that we must engage them in finding their home within the Brooklyn Center community.

To that end, we have some pretty terrific opportunities for students to participate in after school groups, clubs, activities, and athletics. We believe that these activities create a space for students to develop connections and commitment to each other and to our community. We also believe that our Centaurs are students first. Many of you have provided support and feedback for us on our stance related to “good academic standing” for our students as a prerequisite for their involvement in after school programming. We want to set the tone for our young people that their primary job while they are with us is to deepen their learning and development as students. We will not accept failure. We have created spaces for students to work with their teachers after school and with their coaches to ensure that their assignments are up to date and done well.

As always, I ask for your support and partnership in the work of educating our young people. As a community, Brooklyn Center has a tremendous amount to offer to our students in their development. We look forward to partnering to create students who are ready to bring solutions to an ever-changing world.

I invite you to call or come to visit us at BCS at any time. Our school is a special place. We are open to the community and to your partnership.

Always remember- It’s a Great Day to be a Centaur.
