COMING IN FALL 2024

ENCOURAGER CAMPAIGN

We have a much-loved tradition of inviting our BA Grandparents to write notes of encouragement to their students as they prepare for their first-semester exams. A letter with a pre-printed note card(s) and a postage-paid return envelope will be sent to grandparents in October. 

Because we know that not every student has a grandparent who is able to participate, there is also an option for a special guest to send the note of encouragement and/or attend Grandparents' Day. 

To ensure your student(s) does not miss out on this special tradition, please check the address we have on file for their grandparents and/or provide the information for their special guest. You can find and update this information in the parent portal

UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION HERE

For the 2024 Encourager Campaign, we need new and updated information by September 1, 2024.
