This Week...


Our staff participated in data team meetings this week. This helps us to prepare for the upcoming year, appropriately place students and determine needs so we can hit the ground running in August. Believe me, it will be here before we know it! I am so proud of our teachers and the dedication they have to all of our students. Your children are in great hands!

Standing ovation to Laura Gallo for perfecting student rotation and scheduling to help students celebrate Wellness Week. Students were exposed to 10 stations to enforce healthy habits. This included exercising and eating right. Students were exposed to local businesses and programs to showcase their offerings and answer any questions the students had about living a healthy lifestyle. Thank you to all the community members who graciously volunteered their time!

Coming up:

Monday: Volunteers' Luncheon & Spring Fling

Tuesday: 4th Move-Up Day

Thursday: BWE BOE Presentation

Sat: BW Graduation

Enjoy the weekend!


Important Message from your PTO

Re: Yearbooks


1. The assumption at this point is that the envelope containing any paper yearbook orders has been lost.

2. If you sent in a paper order form in February, please cancel your check. It would have been for $16.

3. HR Imaging will reopen online yearbook sales for BWE to allow those who previously turned in a paper order to "reorder" online. As soon as I have that link I will post it here.

4. They will ship us additional order forms for those who wish to send in a paper order. Those will be sent home next week and will need to be returned IMMEDIATELY.

5. Notes will go home on Monday for those who are not on Facebook or Email, to inform them of the situation. Anyone wishing to send in a paper order needs to send a note into school. requesting one. We will not be sending forms home to the entire school. If you know someone who is not on FB, please share this information.

6. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
