Good habits and high expectations start form the first day of school. Let's work together to give our students all the advantages they deserve!
Thank you for supporting your student by getting them to school and being on time every day!
Safety Tip of the Week:
If your students are going out trick or treating tomorrow, please make sure they are in a group supervised by an adult and remind them not to eat any candy or treats until you've inspected them.
The BCE Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
