Dear Bluff Ridge Elementary Community,
I want to extend to you, your student(s), and your family a very warm welcome to Bluff Ridge Elementary (BRE). We are committed to providing a challenging and rigorous curriculum that helps each student progress at a developmentally appropriate rate within a school environment that provides a safe environment for all students. I am honored to join this excellent team of teachers and professional support staff.
In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.
In this quote, Mother Teresa very powerfully captures important wisdom about how to approach life (and schooling) to make it more fulfilling and significant. Teaching and learning offers us all numerous opportunities to focus on a number of "small things" that culminate over time to produce students that are prepared to do "great things" in life. With this in mind, we recognize that the actions of our students and the student learning impacts the world beyond our school. We are committed to developing positive connections and relationships while using a balanced and whole child approach to elementary education. My primary goal is to help your child(ren) have a positive and safe learning experience at BRE. My secondary goal is to strive to make school fun, engaging and exciting for every student.
As the principal, I want you to know that parent voice and involvement truly makes a positive difference it is essential. Please let us know how we can improve and don't be shy about giving compliments when we do a good job. I believe that it is my responsibility to help foster and to continue to build a supportive, nurturing, fair, and collaborative spirit at our school. Together, as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways. Go Bison!
Dr. Scott Rogers
