Welcome! Here is a message from out school leader, Jes Edridge

We are pleased to welcome you and your students to the 2021/2022 school year as part of the Choice family. 

We have had a very busy summer and cannot wait to show our families the renovations made over the past few months. We committed to making these improvements in order to enhance our students’ learning environment. With these renovations completed, our staff has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of their students and cannot wait to learn and grow with them. As our school opens its door this week, it is important for our families to be reassured that our school leaders, teachers and staff are motivated and energized to welcome your child back to a classroom seat. 

Last year tested our resilient families and teachers with remote school, reduced socialization opportunities and created a major disruption to daily routines. 

No matter how your child was educated last year, homeschool, virtual, or in-person, they are welcome to our Battle Creek family. Regardless of where your child is in their educational journey, our teachers are ready to meet them where they are at. We promise to deliver a high-quality education that every student deserves and will work tirelessly to help ignite each child’s love for life-long learning. 

We know this year may bring some bumps along the way and that’s why our schools place emphasis on building character each day. We will instill perseverance and courage in school events, literature and writing activities. We will share compassion and responsibility with our families. Good judgement will be at the forefront of all that we do. 

We, at Battle Creek, are confident that everyone can thrive here. To our returning families and to those of you just joining us, let’s have a strong school year full of enrichment and enlightenment.
