From the Secondary Principal’s Desk

Dear Parents,merry-christmas-new-year-2017

As a community we have transitioned from a season of thankfulness to a season of celebration. A brief Thanksgiving holiday allowed us to reflect and praise God for his faithfulness and blessings over BAIS during this first semester. During the forthcoming Christmas vacation, we are able to celebrate the coming of our Savior – making a way for our redemption and salvation. This is yet another thing to be thankful for. With my first semester almost complete as the new secondary principal, I have found myself in a state of reflection as we progress toward a much deserved holiday.

As I reflect on students at BAIS, I think of words like genuine, sincere, honest, hard-working, and persistent. When I reflect on parents, images of sacrifice, support, school-spirit, care, and dedication come to mind. When I reflect on teachers, I see love, kindness, generosity, sacrifice, care, passion, and exceeding expectations. We are part of a special community, and I am thankful and humbled to be a small part of this community’s success.

The community is finishing up a rigorous first semester. Any time a person goes through a challenging process, it is important to conclude that chapter with reflection and healing. I encourage all community members to take some time over the Christmas holiday to reflect on the successes of first semester, creatively identify areas of improvement for second semester, and take time to proactively relax, rejuvenate, and recreate.

I wish you many blessings over the Christmas and New Year holidays. I look forward to an outstanding second semester!

In Him
Mr. Jeremy Thomas
Secondary Principal
