April 18, 2014

 

Dear BCE Families,

 

I hope you can join me! ~ I'll be helping out this Sunday for our annual Campus Beautification Day.  The fun starts at 8:30 am and we'll work until noon, hope to see you on Sunday!

 

Robin Hood ~ Mr. Carson's 5th grade class delighted us with a production of Robin Hood this week.  The students were well rehearsed and very professional.  I love seeing the talent and creativity of our BCE family!

 

Student Author Fair ~ Next Saturday, May 3rd, many classes at BCE will be participating in the Student Author Fair at Capitola Mall.   Student books will be on display from 10:00 – 4:30.

Thank you for supporting your student by getting them to school every day and on time!

 

Safety Tip of the Week:

Unless you have a handicap placard, please do not drive on campus to drop off or pick up students. Thank you for keeping our students and staff members safe!

BCE Bearmail 4/11/14

April 11, 2014

 

Dear BCE Families,

 

Thank You! ~ We want to thank our Parent Club, and everyone who helped make this such a special week for the BCE staff.   From the massages and treats to the extraordinary lunch at Scopazzi’s, the staff felt appreciated and indulged!  We are indeed a lucky school community to be able to work with the students and families of BCE!  THANK YOU

 

Testing ~ Our 5th graders completed the English Language Arts and Math sections of the new state online test this week.  They were amazing!  I was so proud and impressed with their stamina, perseverance, and sense of purpose.  The 4th graders will be testing next week. 

 

Thank you for supporting your students by sending them to school having had a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast.

 

Help? ~ The tanbark delivery that was planned for a couple of weeks ago had to be cancelled due to rain.  Luckily the delivery has been rescheduled, but we need your help to spread out the tanbark once it has been dumped.  The new delivery day is next Wednesday, April 16th.  If you can help, please arrive at the upper playground at 1:30 and bring a shovel if you can. Thanks!

 

Amazon ~ Our Parent Club has joined the Amazon Smile program.  Signing up is easy!  All you need to do is go to smile.amazon.com or click on the Amazon Smile button on our Parent Club home page (https://sites.google.com/site/bceparentsclub/).  After you sign up all you need to do is go to the smile.amazon.com page and shop as usual.  A percentage of every purchase made through Smile Amazon will be donated to BCE.  For more information please check out our Parent Club home page or visit smile.amazon.com

Thank you for supporting your student by getting them to school every day and on time!

 

Safety Tip of the Week:

Sometimes as our students get older they begin to forget basic safety rules.  The next time you’re out walking with your student please check that they are continuing to look both ways when they cross the street, and are aware of moving vehicles in parking lots.  We spend a lot of time teaching our children these basic safety rules when they are toddlers; we want to make sure they are still practicing these safety rules.

 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

BCE Bearmail 3/28/14

March 28, 2014

 

Dear BCE Families,

 

Spring Break ~ Just a reminder that next week is Spring Break and there will be no school.  We’ll see you back here on Monday April 7th

 

Amazon ~ Our Parent Club has joined the Amazon Smile program.  Signing up is easy!  All you need to do is go to smile.amazon.com or click on the Amazon Smile button on our Parent Club home page (https://sites.google.com/site/bceparentsclub/).  After you sign up all you need to do is go to the smile.amazon.com page and shop as usual.  A percentage of every purchase made through Smile Amazon will be donated to BCE.  For more information please check out our Parent Club home page or visit smile.amazon.com

 

State Testing ~ Starting after Spring Break we will begin our testing window.  All 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will participate in the field test of the Smarter Balance assessment.  A field test is just a test of the assessment itself and the process of giving the assessment.  There will be no scores either for individual students or for BCE as a whole.  The students and teachers have been working on practice tests and we’re ready to get started!  The testing consists of approximately 45 minutes to an hour a day for 5 days. Our 5th graders will test on April 8, 9, 23, 24, 25.  The 4th graders will test the week of April 14th and the 3rd graders will test the week of the 28th.   All testing will be done in our computer lab with some classes piloting the iPads for part of their testing time.

 

The test will be challenging in both content and technology for most students.  Please remind them that everyone is in the same boat and we are really lucky to have this opportunity to let the test makers know what the experts (our students) think.  We’re keeping the mood light and focusing on the fun of trying new things together as a group!

 

Thanks you so much for supporting your students!

 

Testing Snacks ~ While we’re on the subject of testing… We have found that during highly focused activities students perform much better when we provide snacks before the testing period.  If you would like to help out and donate snacks for your class, it would be greatly appreciated. We are requesting snacks such as pretzels, goldfish crackers, cheese sticks, raisins, granola bars, or perhaps fruit slices. We would also like some water bottles and juice boxes. Please avoid snacks containing peanuts.  Snack time is much easier if the snacks are in individual packets, you could either buy individual packs or bring snacks in Ziploc bags.

Thanks for your help, it's always appreciated.

 

 

Up Coming Dates to Remember

  • 3/31 – 4/3 = No School, Spring Break
  • Thursday 4/10 = Parent Club Meeting
  • Wednesday 4/16 = Family Dinner Night
  • Thursday 4/17 = Site Council Meeting
  • Monday 4/21 = No School
  • Sunday 4/27 = Campus Beautification

Attendance Facts:

School attendance is a baseline factor in determining student success.  Are you supporting your student’s academic success?  If you are struggling with this issue, please let us know, we’d love to be able to work with you to solve this important issue.

 

Thank you for supporting your student by getting them to school every day and on time!

 

Safety Tip of the Week:

Hybrid cars are often very quiet and can be hard to hear when they are moving.  Please reinforce how important it is for your students to keep their eyes open and alert for moving vehicles.

 

Wishing you all a wonderful Spring Break!

 

The BCE Way:  BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
