College & Career Readiness ~ As I mentioned at Back to School Night, one of the goals we have as a School District is to make sure all our students are college and career ready. At BCE we want to support our students to be ready for any future they can dream of! They don't need to decide in 2nd grade what college they want to go to or what career path they want to follow, but when the time comes we want them to be prepared academically and socially to pursue their goals.
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 15 through October 12. You will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets at tomorrow's Santa Cruz Mountain Harvest Festival. 100% of the proceeds from these raffle tickets support BCE! Thank you for supporting our students!
PowerSchool Registration Reminder
29% of our BCE Families have not completed this important piece of your student's registration. Please take a moment to check to see if your student's registration is complete. THANK YOU!
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 on-line 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.

The Flyer Process for San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District is posted on the "home" page of the District website at www.slvusd.org. The flyers and/or blurbs are no longer inserted into the school newsletters or distributed to the children. The District is making an effort to reduce the amount of paper that is sent home with your child(ren) and is working together to streamline the newsletter so that you read about the most important information regarding your child's school. The District has created a website where all of the approved flyers will be posted (Community Opportunity).
