Welcome to the Bruce School. We ask everyone in our district to strive to grow as individuals. We aim to foster the development of responsible, knowledgeable citizens, in a student centered environment that requires a dedicated effort from students who come to school each day ready, willing, and motivated to learn. We will work to continually provide dynamic educational opportunities that meet the needs of all students in our ever changing world. We expect strong support from our dedicated and talented staff and caring community that will model lifelong learning that leads to a successful life.
As we begin our 2nd semester I want to congratulate our students, staff, and parents on our awesome state report card results which showed our district as "Significantly Exceeding Expectations" where we rank #1 in Cesa 10 and 7th overall in the state for K-12 schools! You can all be very proud of this. Now the challenge lies in maintaining this excellence and with our dedicated staff and supportive parents I know and expect we will. We also had great 2nd quarter results for our students with 97% of our MS students earning passing grades and 89% or our HS students doing the same! I have challenged the HS students to reach and exceed the 90% passing mark for 3rd quarter.
With our move to Standards Based Grading in the Elementary I hope parents are understanding the information and realizing it is much more specific and helpful in knowing where your student is strongest and where they have a weakness. Our plan will be to move to this type of grading school wide over the next few years.
We welcome your input for ways we can help serve you or make improvements here at school. Please contact me if you have suggestions. Let's all work together to have another great school year here at Bruce!
Mr. Larry Villiard-Principal
