Congratulations Mrs. Cruz on being named BAS’ Teacher of the Year.  For over 14 years, Mrs. Cruz has positively touched the lives of children by meeting their academic and social/emotional needs. She promotes academic success while supporting independence, problem solving and other important life skills.  Mrs. Cruz is a lifelong learner who is an active member of the community in and out of school.

Mrs. Bober is dedicated, reliable and loving. Her commitment to BAS comes across in all that she does.

Thank you from Lafayette: Thank you for your extreme generosity!  The BAS Family made a difference in many lives this holiday season.
