BCE Carnival ~ Another successful Carnival and Silent Auction is behind us! What a fun and exciting day it was. Thank you to our families who attended the Carnival and bid on items from the Silent Auction. A big THANK YOU goes out to Laurel Johnson, Tammy Schultz, Chrissy Dahl, Amber Jones, and all our families who donated their time and energies to working before, during and after the big day to make it such a success.
I am so grateful for our amazing BCE Parent Club and all the families that support us. Your fundraising efforts provide field trips, classroom supplies and many extras that our students and staff benefit from. Additionally, the community building that comes along with the events you sponsor is priceless. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

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.

Did you know???
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that you teach your kids healthy habits. You can help your students develop skills to make safe and healthy choices every day. These include fastening seat belts, wearing helmets, applying sunscreen, brushing teeth, washing hands, forming healthy relationships, and more. Make safe and healthy choices every day to show kids how to do it.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
The BCE Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE
