Welcome back to our 2nd edition of The Perch, the quarterly eNewsletter about all things Brilla in the Bronx! We are pleased to present to you two short videos about Brilla which we just produced.
Though we still have four more months of classes left, our leadership team is already busy gearing up for next year and beyond. At a recent all-school meeting, we announced a number of the new employment opportunities opening up at our schools and CMO Network. We are hiring teachers, a student services coordinator and high school placement coordinator at our Brilla campuses. For our Network, we are looking to fill positions in student recruitment, operations and academics. More information about these openings can be accessed here.
As part of our growth plan to expand from three to eight campuses, we plan to open up two new elementary schools – Brilla Caritas and Brilla Pax – in August 2020. We are in the process of identifying school locations in the Bronx now. We are thrilled to announce that we have already selected Shingi Mutasa as principal of Brilla Pax. We first identified Mr. Mutasa during our principal selection event in winter of 2018. Previously, he had been working as our Kindergarten Grade and Content Lead at BCP Elementary, in preparation for his year of residency prior to our 2020 launch.
We are now accepting applications for our 2019-20 school year! Please tell friends and family about us, as nothing would make us happier than to welcome new scholars! The deadline to apply is on April 1st; the application can be found at this link.
It is a privilege for us to serve our dedicated Brilla families from the Bronx and beyond and we look forward to expanding our family network as we grow.
