Dear BCE Families,
Carnival Help ~ The BCE Carnival is TOMORROW! An event this amazing requires a lot of support. If you have not yet had the opportunity to sign up to help, please check in at the Volunteer Booth. The booth will be located near the benches outside of the front office. Thank you for modeling such great community values. Your students are so proud and happy to see their families participating in our BCE community. Thank you for your support, I look forward to seeing you all at the carnival tomorrow!
Open House ~ I hope to see all of you next Thursday, May 18 for our annual BCE Open House! The fun begins at 5:00 pm with our Parent Club BBQ and the opening of our Art Masterpiece display in the MP. The Book Fair opens at 5:30 pm and the ukulele and band performance will be on uppers from 5:45 – 6:20 pm. Classrooms and the Science Lab will be open from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.

Band Festival ~ I'd like to invite you to the 8th Annual SLVUSD "District-Wide Band Festival" on May 30 at 7 pm in the SLVHS Gym.
This is the one time during the year that you can hear the BCE, SLE, SLVMS and SLVHS bands all in one place. It's a fun way to celebrate how hard we've worked this year (or more) as well as see the progression from elementary through high school. Our finale for the evening will feature all 150+ performers playing together which is something you just have to see/hear to believe!
The event is free but donations will be accepted and there will be a $5 hotdog dinner available at 6 pm.
I hope you'll consider joining us for this fun evening of music!
Family Survey ~ It's that time of year again! Please take a moment to use this link to complete our Family Survey. The information we receive from the survey guides us in our plans for next school year. Thank you for your time.
Need Kindergarten? ~ Kindergarten registration for fall 2017 opened on March 15. Visit the BCE office to pick up a registration packet and sign up for a spot to attend one of our two remaining Kindergarten orientations and tours. The last tour will take place on May 19 (adults only please). To begin the registration process, please plan on bringing your child's birth certificate, immunization record and proof of address (e.g. utility bill with your name and address).

Children must be five years old by September 1 in order to enroll in Kindergarten.

Did you know???
Missing classes in elementary school sets the stage for problems later. If students are absent or tardy it is often difficult for them to stay at grade level. Students who don't read at grade level by the end of third grade are four times more likely to become high school dropouts.
Thank you for supporting your student by getting them to school every day and on time!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
The BCE Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
The Amazing Annual BCE Carnival!!! – BCE's famous Carnival and Silent Auction will be TOMORROW from 10:30 to 3:30 on the uppers' blacktop. It's never too late to volunteer, so come along tomorrow and check in at the Volunteer Booth if you have time to spare. Thank you all for making this possible!
New Officers needed – It's the time of year when we start looking ahead to next year's Parent Club board. We have a few officers who will not be running for their positions next year. We will definitely need a secretary (or two co-secretaries), vice-president (or two vice-presidents), and a treasurer (or two co-treasurers). We hope you will strongly consider joining this lovely group to support our school.
