Parents! The BES BOOSTERTHON FUN RUN is just 2 WEEKS AWAY! The BES FUN RUN will help our school AND teach our students character. This year, we’re raising funds to Enhance General Programs at BES! Last year we raised money for the following: IXL - Math and ELA - a website that allows true differentiation for students in math and ELA skills based on what they already know and the skills they need to acquire. Reflex Math - a math game based website that helps students with their math fact fluency. Data shows that this is helping our students learn their math facts Individual white boards, erasers, and markers for all students to aid in the teaching of our new phonics program Headphones for Chrome Books Specialized furniture for some of our special education classrooms Prizes for reading goals and the summer slide reading program. Watch the video below to see how you can help our students!! https://vimeo.com/342370792/f0b976288a #Boosterthon

Kudos to our staff and students for their excellent work today as BES tested out our new security system! We had a great drill and everyone did an awesome job participating. We had several substitutes in the building today and we received multiple comments from them on how well behaved and attentive our kids were! We are proud of you!

Parents, we had one of our exit signs by the gym doors short out and start smoking this morning at about 7:15AM. The sign has now been replaced and everything is back to normal at this time. We want to thank our bus drivers, our staff, our parents, and especially our students, for being so flexible and helping us as we altered our typical morning routine to accommodate this incident! Have a Fantastic Friday!
