Campus Advisory Team

We have a Campus Advisory Team consisting of staff, parents, community and business members. This committee provides feedback on campus goals, budgets and improvements for the campus. We meet quarterly, with the first meeting being held in October. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please email Jennifer Andjelic at

Thanks for your support!

Morning Drop-off/Traffic Update

Since our campus is growing, we do have a bit more traffic in the mornings. We are working with our maintenance department to paint some additional lines at the entrance and certain places in the school parking lot to assist with traffic flow. Please keep in mind, in addition to the front, we have drop-off on the side of the building as well, by the gym entrance. This area is also manned by staff members.

When exiting, please alternate vehicles, to keep traffic moving. Also, there should be no cell phone use in the school zone. We need all drivers to pay attention and watch for directions from staff members. Students should be ready with backpacks to quickly exit their vehicles.

Thanks for your help in ensuring morning drop-off is safe and efficient!

BCE PTO Information

Raise Craze Starts on Friday!

Our Fall Fundraiser is almost here! This year, rather than running laps, our students will be performing ACTS OF KINDNESS for others! The whole premise of Raise Craze is “Fundraising through Kindness” and we are so excited about getting all BCE students on board to spread kindness in our community.

  • We will be raising funds for purchases for BCE which help to support LTISD’s new Learner-Centric Model, including:
    • Google Expeditions – a tool to help inspire students and teach them about our world
    • BookNook software – 700+ books on our classroom Chromebooks to support dynamic learning and build excellent readers
    • Purchases for your child’s individual classroom (chosen by their teacher)
  • Raise Craze will kick off at assembly on Friday, Sept 28th and all parents are welcome to join! We will be sending home more details about the fundraiser and how to register on that day
  • Also, this week your students should have brought home a BEE to decorate. Please return finished bees to school by Thursday, Sept 27. Parent volunteers will be hanging these around the school prior to the kickoff assembly.
  • How will you spread kindness? #BeeKind

Mother/Son Kickball Tournament

The Mother-Son Kickball Tournament is this Friday, September 28th! See you at LTYA Field of Dreams at 5pm for check-in. Note that registration has ended as we are now making the teams.

We are still looking for volunteers to be referees, team coordinators, photographers, Bandit, and help at check-in – we’d love for husbands and middle/high school students to help us all out!

Get your game on!

Math Superstars

Last call to register for Math Superstars!

This is a completely voluntary, 10-week enrichment program for ALL grades! It gives parents and students the opportunity to work at home on fun math problems. The program is great for encouraging parent/child teamwork, practicing math skills, learning to approach problem solving situations, and strengthening the tie between home and school. AND there are prizes! This year there will be a Kindle raffled off for EACH GRADE! For more information, please refer to the attached flyer or visit our website.

Don’t forget to register by Monday, Sept 24. Week #1 starts Sept 25!
