Dear BCE Families,
Halloween Trick? ~ Well, we thought someone was playing a trick on us, but it turned out a water main was ruptured in town and BCE was out of water for a portion of our afternoon. Our maintenance department brought jugs of water to campus and the kids
were able to have something to drink with their Halloween treats! The last update we received indicated that the water should be back up and running before evening.
No School – Just a reminder that there is no school for our students tomorrow, Friday October 30th. It is a teacher workday and our staff will be being trained in new and exciting curriculum practices.
Family Science Night ~ Please join me next Thursday evening for Family Science Night. Our wonderful Parent Club is sponsoring this fun and educational event. San Jose Children's Discovery Museum will be at BCE with a variety of activities to explore and learn about air. Join us at 6:30 next Thursday in the MP for "Air We Go!"

Did you know???
It's always better to be safe than sorry. If your students are going out trick or treating on Saturday, 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.
Wishing you all a wonderful three day weekend!
The BCE Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
