Dear BCE Families,
Astronomy Night ~ I hope to see many of you tonight at the Astronomy Night sponsored by our wonderful Parent Club. The fun starts at 6pm on the upper playground!
Bulb Sales ~ Our 5th grade class is having a fundraiser to help defray the cost of Science Camp. Please visit the following web site and consider purchasing some beautiful flower bulbs. Not only will your garden thank you, but the 5th graders will thank you as they participate in this much anticipated activity. THANK YOU so very much for your continued support! http://www.flowerpowerfundraising.com/campaign?campaign_id=17989
We need your help! ~ On Wednesday the 26th our wonderful Parent Club has arranged to have new tan bark delivered to our upper playground. We need your help in spreading the tan bark out after it arrives. Please bring your shovels and rakes to the upper playground at 1:30 and join the fun! **Date is subject to change due to weather conditions**
Sports Day ~ Next Tuesday the 25th some of our Little Leaguers are planning to wear their uniforms to school. Let’s celebrate all our athletes and fans by having a Sports Day! Any student that would like to can participate by wearing the favorite team clothes to school.
Recognition Assembly ~ I had the opportunity to pass out awards on Wednesday at one of our monthly assemblies. It is always such a positive experience and reminds me of what amazing, caring, and hard working students we have here at BCE. Thank you for supporting them in all the ways you do and thank your for being a role model for the BCE Way!
Low-Cost Internet and Computers ~ Comcast is offering affordable internet ($9.95 a month) and low cost computers ($149.99) to see if you qualify please visit InternetEssentials.com or call 1-855-846-8376. Brochures with additional information are available in the office.
Trading Cards ~ Please remind your student that there are no “trading cards” at school. This would include Pokeman and other cards that students collect and trade.
Lost and Found ~ Our Lost & Found area is overflowing with jacket, sweaters, lunch boxes, shirts, hats, sweatshirts, etc. Please come by and take a look. It would be a shame to have to replace items that are sitting here waiting to be claimed. All unclaimed items will be donated to charity at the end of the month.

Safety Tip of the Week:
Please supervise your students if they are using the Internet. There are so many sites not appropriate for school age children and parental blocking controls do not always work well or consistently.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
