MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL PHELPS

BCE Families,

 

While it may be a little gloomy outside, BCE continues to be filled with sunshine.  I know I don't have to tell you this, but our students are awesome! This doesn't happen by accident.  It's supportive and involved families like you that make BCE so special.

Thank you for your generous donations to the Booster Club No Hassle Fundraiser (NHF)!  As of this morning, 43% of BCE families have donated! For the new families, I want to take a minute to let you know where all the money raised through the NHF goes! Most of us are aware of the fun activities that Booster Club sponsors but your donations also help support several academic endeavors that are integral to the success of the kids at BCE. Several of the learning opportunities and classroom materials available in the classrooms are crucial and funded by the booster club. Some of these you may be aware of and some may be surprising to you.

 

  • Reflex Math
  • Learning A-Z
  • FOSS science materials
  • STEAM carts & supplies
  • Staff Development
  • Enrichment clusters
  • Cultural Arts events
  • STEAM Day
  • Science Fair
  • Water bottle filling stations
  • Library renovation


BCE students benefit greatly from your contributions to the No Hassle Fundraiser.  Please consider donating at bcebooster.org


On another note, I think we just about have our morning bus timing down and are settling nicely into our routines.  However, I think you would agree that there is still room for improvement with our traffic flow and safety during arrival and dismissal times.  We would love your help. If you would be interested in volunteering to help direct traffic and assist students in and out of their vehicles, please sign-up here.  Traffic Safety Volunteers


A few reminders:

 

  • School doors do not open until 7:20 am.
  • Remain in your vehicles during drop-off and pick-up.  If your child needs assistance with their seat belt and/or getting in and out of your vehicle, please park in our designated spaces in lieu of using the car line.
  • Do not park or drop-off in the handicap parking area unless you have the appropriate permitting to do so.
  • Pay close attention to the staff members directing traffic and keep your cell phones stowed away.  They are working hard to keep things flowing and your children safe, but I want to make sure my staff is safe, too.
  • The front of the school is for buses only until 7:40 am, unless a staff member directs you otherwise.
  • If the car line is backed up, please remain patient and wait until you reach the drop-off zone to have your child exit the vehicle.  We are working to add signage and cones to make this more visible.

 

Thank you for your continued support in keeping BCE beautiful, safe, and full of thriving students.  


All my best,


Tiffany Phelps
