BCE Bearmail 1/28/16

January 28, 2016


Dear BCE Families,


Reminder ~ Just a reminder that there is no school for our students tomorrow January 29th.  Our teachers will be working hard at a training focused on next steps for our students in Writing Workshop.

Valentine's Day ~ As February rolls in we start thinking about Valentine's Day.  Please remember that if your student brings Valentine cards for 1 student in the class, they need to bring cards for all the students in their class.  Valentine's Day is not a day for hurt feelings and hearts.

The BCE Way ~ Please ask your students to describe ways that they've demonstrated the BCE Way this week.  How did they show they were RESPONSIBLE, SAFE and RESPECTFUL?
