Dear BCE Families,
Thanksgiving Holiday ~ Please remember that our Thanksgiving break begins Monday and there will be no school next week from 11/23 – 11/27. I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving and I for one will be giving thanks for having the privilege of working with amazing students, fabulous families, and sensational staff!
Canned Food Drive ~ The Valley Christmas Project Canned Food Drive is up and running. Please send in your non-perishable donations to help support families in our community. This is a great opportunity for our children to discover the good feeling we receive when we do good things for others.
Science Fair ~ Just a reminder that the BCE Science Fair will be taking place at the end of January. All students from kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to participate. For more information visit http://bce.slvusd.org/student-activities/science-fair or contact our wonderful science teacher Patty Hayes.

Quote of the Week (Pride):

Did you know???
Just by being present at school, your child is learning how to be a good citizen by participating in the school community, learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
The BCE Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
