BMES Family Weekly Update

Week of December 5, 2022

Big picture

Message from Principal Wagner

Good evening BMES Families,


Nationally, there are several winter illness going around schools, churches, and communities. Please take a moment this weekend to remind your child about consistent hand washing and keeping their fingers out of their eyes, noses, and mouth. This discussion with your child may decrease the rate of illness. Thank you for your support.


This week, we will have our picture day for any new students or absent students. These pictures will be taken on Tuesday, December 9.


The BMES Art and Music Showcase originally scheduled for this Wednesday will be rescheduled to Tuesday, December 13. We apologize for any inconvenience but hope to still see you Tuesday, December 13 at 6:30pm.


On Friday, December 9th, all families are invited to our PTA Winter Wonderland at 6pm in the BMES cafe. We can't wait to see you for the holiday celebration. If you are able to volunteer to make this event a great one, please use the link to sign up. Santa may even drop in!


Lastly, this Friday we will have an early dismissal at 12:45pm. All students will be served lunch before dismissal but please don't forget to pick up your child early.


Have a great evening,

Mrs. Wagner
