Message from the Principal

Ranger Families,

Wow! It was a great week here at BTE! We hope this weekend finds you well and balanced. This week, as a school, we practiced being BALANCED with our time, activities, food, and friends. Our Spanish phrase of the week was QUÉ HORA ES which means, "What time is it?" 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.


Quintina Gildon

Interim Principal, BTE

District Benchmark Testing is next week!
