Dear BCE Families,
Happy Holidays! ~ As we say good-bye to 2015 I want to wish all our BCE families and friends a wonderful Winter Break. I hope you are able to spend some extra quality time with your extra special students! I'm looking forward to seeing you all back in 2016 and continuing our important work together.
Joy ~ If you have a kindergartner or first grader I hope you were able to make it to their holiday singing performances this week. If you had the opportunity to see those bright shiny faces and hear their beautiful singing, you know the meaning and feeling of joy!
Bear Wear ~ Just to give you a heads up, you will soon have the opportunity to order BCE Bear Wear again! Order forms will go home on Monday January 11th for t-shirts and sweatshirts. An IOU for a wonderful for BCE Bear Wear might be a great gift from Santa?
PLEASE note that Winter Break this year runs from December 21st through January 4th. That means that school will not resume until Tuesday January 5th.

Did you know???
Researchers have consistently found that families that engage in frequent traditions report stronger connection and unity than families that haven't established rituals together. I hope you and your children are able to continue to create memorable holiday traditions.
Update ~ Some of your students may have seen an ambulance on campus today. One of our students was hit on the head by a PE ball. He fell to the ground and seemed a bit woozy so erring on the side of caution, we called 911. The good news is that all is well and he is off with his family to enjoy the long holiday break. Thank you for your understanding and compassion!
Wishing you all a wonderful Winter Break!
The BCE Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
