Happy New Year

Happy New Year! We hope that everyone had a very nice and relaxing holiday break. We are eager to get the new year started with so much to look forward to.

December was a wonderful month. We had so many great events take place and so many people helping to contribute.

With the support of the families of the BTES community we were able to help 48 children on the giving tree. That is our best year ever and we cannot thank those that helped enough!!

Thank you to Mrs. Puri and Mr. Brausam for helping organize a wonderful holiday concert. The students worked very hard and did a great job showcasing their skills for the students and families of BTES. Great Job.

Finally, the staff and students in both 5th and 6th grade did a great job with their family activities right before the break. 5th grade hosted an amazing gingerbread house making event and 6th grade created exciting STEM activities for the students and their families to partake in. A great couple days at BTES and thank you for all who attended.

Kindness Squad

Students are continuing to show kindness and respect on a daily basis. We look forward to recognizing these boys and girls on a weekly basis at the Week in Review. One small act of kindness can make a monumental difference in another person's day. We hope that we continue to see this each and every day.

The Nurse's Nook!

The Mobile Dentist is coming to BTES on Friday, January 25, 2019. Forms should have been sent home to all families. If you need an extra, please let us know. The form only needs to be returned if the Parent/Guardian wants their child to participate.

Thank you and if you have any questions please contact me!

Reminder: Cell Phone Procedures

At BTES we have decided to create a user friendly cell phone rule. When students bring their phones to school, they should be set off and kept in their bookbag during the school day. When riding the bus, the students may use their phones for music ONLY! There should be no games, calling, texting, photographing, or video taping on the bus. While using their phones for music they MUST ALSO have an earbud in one ear, leaving the other ear open for messages or announcements.

If this rule is not followed, we will be forced to eliminate the use of all phones while on school property.

Thank you for your continued support.
