Dear BCE Families,
Ice Cream! ~ I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! I hope to see many of you between 5 and 7 pm TODAY for our annual Ice Cream Social. Remember the first scoop is free for all BCE students!
Great Evening! ~ It was fantastic to see so many of you at the first Parent Club meeting of the year last night! We have the most amazing Parent Club here at BCE and I love that there are such a variety of ways for parents to be involved. Our Parent Club provides so much for our school (field trips, school supplies, assemblies, technology, umbrellas for extra shade, etc.) Thank you for all you do and for all the support you provide the students of BCE.
Important Information for BCE Volunteers ~ Please click here to read an important letter from our Superintendent Laurie Bruton. There are some significant changes to our school district's volunteer policy that will become effective November 1. Thank you for supporting BCE students!
Armed Forces Families ~ The state of California is asking us to update our information concerning the number of Armed Forces families we have at BCE. A student is considered to be an Armed Forces Family Member if at least one parent is an Armed Forces member, on active duty or serves on full-time National Guard duty. If you are an Armed Forces family please click here to download our BCE Armed Forces Families data sheet. Forms will also be available in the BCE office or your student's classroom. Thank you for your support and service!
Drive for Schools ~ Would you like to win a car or $25,000 and support BCE? Raffle tickets are $5.00 each or a book of 6 for $25.00. Tickets will be available in the BCE office from September 15th through October 12. You will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets at tonight's Ice Cream Social or the Santa Cruz Mountain Harvest Festival on the September 24. 100% of the proceeds from these raffle tickets support BCE! Thank you for supporting our students!
It's All About Student Safety - PowerSchool Registration Reminder
Parents - If you have not submitted student online registration via PowerSchool, please take a few minutes to do so.
It is a matter of safety.
· We need to have the current and correct contact information via phone or email in order to contact you if your child becomes ill or has a medical or some other type of emergency while at school.
· We need to have the current and correct information for your emergency contacts in case you are not accessible.
This is why we ask you to complete the annual online registration for each of your students every year. If you haven't checked to make sure all of your information is current and correct, please complete the PowerSchool Registration for each of your students as soon as possible.
How do you know if you've submitted your student's PowerSchool Registration? If you log into PowerSchool and click on the link for "PowerSchool Registration" and you do not see any forms available to you, then you have done an update. If, however, there are links to your child's online form, then your registration has not been updated.
If you need assistance setting up your parent PowerSchool account, you can come into your school office and Mrs. Steinberg can assist you in creating your account. Or, you can email Gail Heagerty at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
