Hello New Beaver Upper School Students,

Welcome to Beaver Country Day School! We are so happy to have you join the Beaver community. We would like to introduce our BVR Connects program.

The purpose of BVR Connects is to welcome and support you as a new student in the Upper School. As a new student, you will be assigned a BVR Connects partner—a returning Upper School student—to serve as an informal point of contact, and help you acclimate to life in the Upper School. As a new student, you’re automatically registered for the program!

Know that this is not a peer counseling, advising, or mentorship program but an opportunity for all new Upper Schoolers to have a Beaver student to talk to as you navigate the Upper School.

How will it work?
Each BVR Connects partner will give you a tour of Beaver, based on your first day of school schedule, before school starts on September 2 (the day of your advisor conferences). You will then meet with your BVR Connects partner four times over the first month of school.

If school needs to be completed remotely in the fall, BVR Connects has planned accordingly and we will share the details of the plan if needed. 

More information about the program is laid out in this video. Also, check your Beaver email for a message from your BVR Connects partner in the next couple of weeks! This will hopefully give you a chance to connect before school starts in the fall. If you have any questions or comments about BVR Connects, please feel free to reach out to Ms. Cho, Assistant Director of Student Life and Equity or anyone on the BVR Connects Advisory Board. Here is everything you need to know about the program.

All the best, 

The BVR Connects Advisory Board
