Farewell to Mr. McLean

This week is our last week with Mr. McLean as our Vice-Principal. We are so grateful for his leadership and for the relationships he has built in the school and community. On Thursday at school, the students and staff will have an opportunity to wish him well on his next adventure. On Thursday evening at Family Movie Night, the community will also have a chance to wish him well. School Council has created an online card if families are interested in signing it, and it will be presented to Mr. McLean at movie night. Here is the link:


As part of the festivities on Thursday, we will be having a Bakersfield Spirit Day. Wear your Bakersfield gear or Yellow and Blue!!

Things Happening at BPS

At our last School Council Meeting we were sharing all of the great things happening here at school and it was suggested we pull something together for the Blog. This is not a full and complete list, but a beginning glimpse at everything we have going on. We will continue to add to the chart and share as we move through the rest of this year.

In The Loop…

We had a great day today at school with an author visit and an assembly about mental health. It has been so nice to bring back some ‘normal’.

As you have already heard, THURSDAY Jan 26th is an inclement weather day. This means that the school is open, but buses and taxis are cancelled. In addition, sports, clubs and special events as well as lunch programs are postponed.

Specifically at Bakersfield:

  • Basketball and volleyball are postponed
  • Graduation photos are postponed until Monday Jan 30
  • Mr Sub lunches are postponed and will be sent on Tuesday Jan 31st
