Dear BCE Families,
Our BCE Way Day! ~ Today your student participated in one of our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) activities. Classes started in the MP Room where we reviewed the BCE Way and presented each class with a copy of the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud. This book encourages positive behavior by showing the reader how kindness, appreciation and love fill all our buckets. The next step involved going with their class to 5 different stations around school, where they were met by various staff members, and reviewed what the BCE Way looks like in each of those areas (walkways, lunch line, recess, etc.) Our goal was to remind us all that by living the BCE Way (being Respectful, Responsible and Safe) we can fill each other's buckets as well as our own.

Empathy Quote of the Week :
"When you sing with a group of people, you learn how to subsume yourself into a group consciousness because a cappella singing is all about the immersion of the self into the community. That's one of the great feelings - to stop being me for a little while and to become us. That way lies empathy, the great social virtue."
~ Brian Eno
Did you know???
Helping your student arrive to school every day and stay for the whole school day conveys to your student that you respect their teacher, the other students, and the important work that they are doing in school every day.
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
Staff and students shall refrain from bringing furred or feathered animals, stuffed toys that may collect dust mites, scented candles, incense or air fresheners and from using perfume or cologne, scented hair spray, nail polish or nail polish remover that are not fragrance-free in classrooms or other enclosed areas or buildings.
Thanks to all of you who could make it to the Valentine's Day this past Friday. If you have any pictures please share them with the yearbook staff! Thanks.
There are a lot of volunteer opportunities for our big events in the Spring including the walk-jog-a-thon (March), silent auction (April) and Carnival (May)!
Carnival is not possible without volunteers. We are currently looking for a Carnival Chair or co-chairs. Please step up and help with these position if you want your child to experience a Carnival at BCE this Spring. If you are interested in helping to plan this event contact us right away. This is our most widely attended event and will take place Saturday, May 12, 2018, 10 AM-3 PM. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that Family Movie Night has been moved to March 9! Our master calendar had said February 9th but we had to push it back a month. We will be showing Coco! Bring a pillow and a blanket and get cozy with your friends and family! Thanks for your understanding with the schedule change.
