Dear BCE Families,
THANK YOU ~ Thank you all for your generous donations to the Gift Shift. What a great example of kindness and compassion you are for our students. The smiles on the faces of our students and families and the joy they had when they left with gifts for their loved ones are truly the spirit of the holiday! Thank you so very much to Katie Booth and her team for all their hard work and for keeping this BCE tradition alive and supporting our families.
Bell Choir ~ During the School Board meeting on Thursday evening those attending enjoyed a lovely performance by the BCE/SLE Bell Choir. What a treat to be able to enjoy beautiful music performed by our valley's elementary students. Many thanks to our amazing music teacher Carey Liston for making the concert possible.
Support ~ Thank you for your support as we maneuver our way through the holiday season. Holidays can be an amazing and magical time of the year and they can also be tiring and stressful. With two weeks of school left, please keep their routine as close to normal as possible, make sure they have plenty of sleep, and their diet is healthy and low in sugar. Our amazing teachers still have a lot of learning planned for your student and we want our BCE Bears ready to do their important work! Thank you.
Pokemon Go ~ For students safety, Pokemon Go or other electronic games are not allowed to be played at school even after the dismissal bell has rung. This past week we have had students running back and forth across campus and almost into parking lots and streets while their head is down looking at a screen. Students have run into each other and there have been some close calls between primary and upper grade students when one didn't see the other. Thank you for helping us get the word out to all our students. We appreciate all you do to keep our kids safe.
Science Fair ~ Just a reminder that the BCE Science Fair will be taking place February 1 – 3, 2017. All students from kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to participate. For more information visit http://bce.slvusd.org/student-
Canned Food Drive ~ The Valley Christmas Project Canned Food Drive is continuing. 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.

Quote of the Week (Responsibility):

Did you know???
Missing 2 weeks of class time each year in primary school year means a total of 14 weeks teaching time missed— this could have a real impact on basic student literacy and math skills.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
The BCE Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
