Ranger Report 12/09/22

IB World School

Message from the Principal

Ranger Families,

Wow! It was a great week here at BTE! This week, as a school, we practiced being PRINCIPLED by having integrity and honesty. Our Spanish phrase of the week was ¡Felices fiestas! which means, Happy holidays! We encouraged all scholars to practice this phrase throughout the day and even at home.

Our goal is to bridge the divide between families and school. Please help us do that by making sure you are receiving Talking Points messages that are being sent out from your child's teacher. If you are not, let them know and we will get you connected.

Important reminder:

  • BREAKFAST- If your child needs to eat breakfast in the morning, they will need to arrive BEFORE 7:25. The breakfast line DOES shut down at this time so that all students can be in class before the tardy bell rings!
