BECS Parent Newsletter

May 5, 2022

Dear Hawk Families,

We are officially in the throws of the ever-changing Colorado weather. Rain, sun, and everything in-between keeps us on our toes. However, seeing the flowers coming up and the kids enjoying the outdoors brings us joy as we near the end the school year.


A big shout out to Ms. Boyer for her wonderful music performances with the elementary grades!


Thank you to all of our students and families who shared their appreciation with staff this week. Your notes, treats and kind words were very much appreciated! We are so grateful for the support of the BECS community!


Thank you, also, to our amazing PTO for the Taco Truck the staff enjoyed on Wednesday. We are so grateful for all you do.

Ameritowne Charity Fundraiser

The 5th-grade students sold various food items after school last week for the charity that they selected through Ameritown. They raised $735.53 and were able to bring their donation to Ameritown this week. Great job BECS!

Current 5th Grade heading on to 6th Grade

We are looking forward to supporting you and your child with the transition to 6th grade! We recognize that while students remain in the same building, they encounter several major changes when transitioning to middle school such as having six teachers per day, having a locker, managing their organization, and engaging with numerous different groups of peers along with all of their physical and emotional changes. Below at the LINK are some answers to a few of the questions you may have regarding your student going into 6th grade. LINK


Spring Clubs:

The last day of Spring Clubs for 2022 will be Thursday, May 12th. After Thursday, May 12th, clubs will no longer be meeting. Thank you to all of the students who participated in our Spring Clubs, and thank you to parents who were willing to have their students participate. We will start clubs up again in the fall. Thank you!

Wow! Check out what is happening in 3rd grade…

Ms. Casasanta’s advanced readers engaged in a novel study of The BFG (big friendly giant) over the course of the second semester. This past week, they got to present their end-of-unit projects. Some of them included “dream jars”, “snozzcumber” snacks, and 20 questions true/false kahoots!

Students worked so hard on these projects and were very excited to show off their hard work with the rest of the class!

Lost and Found

We are overflowing with lost items. Please ask your student to check for any items they may be missing.


Modified Dress Days

Have you ever wondered where the money goes on $1 Modified Dress days? These are great opportunities for student groups/clubs to do fundraisers for their activities, to supply for the BECS Bucks Store, Positive Student Behavior Incentives, and so much more. Thank you for your support!


Pastries with the Principals Update

This morning was our Pastries with the Principals event where families and our Principals are able to connect to share updates on school goals and programs, receive parent feedback and answer questions parents have regarding Bromley. This month we discussed our overall purpose and plans for next year, an update our our school goals from 21/22 and where we plan to go in 22/23, an update on end of year DIBELS data and asked for feedback on how we can improve our efforts to communicate with families and connect them to volunteer opportunities within the school.


This was our last meeting of the year and we will be back next year starting August 26th. We will meet monthly on the last Friday of each month (except for December and May). Please be on the look out for this opportunity next year and we hope to see you!

PTO Updates:

2022/2023 BECS PTO Event Committees

We can't host school-wide events with just a handful of us. We need people willing to contribute their ideas and skills. PTO is planning 3 large events next school year and is in search of volunteers. There are 3 heavy-hitting events; Fall Festival, Parent Gala, and Color Run which will each have their own committee. Each committee will decide each person's role, responsibilities, and when to meet. Please email Elizabeth Strobel for more information.


Technology:

All students are required to fill out an end-of-year device assessment. See the schedule below.

Please use the following links to help your child fill out the assessment form. One form per student, please.


Devices, cases and cords will be handed in at the end of the year. Please make sure all devices have their cases attached to the device. If devices, cases, or cords are missing or damages are present your student will incur a fee for the replacement/repair.

Update Your Information

Every quarter it is good to take a mental check if anything has changed in your contact information. Work, Cell, Home Address, In Case of Emergency Contact List, etc. A great way to check is to log in to your Infinite Campus parent portal. If you have any issues with logging in or need assistance please don't hesitate to call the main office. We would be happy to assist.


Big picture

Students will be receiving their yearbooks on May 20th to take home.

  • We encourage families to write their students’ names in their yearbook

  • Students can bring yearbooks the following week for signatures and must abide by classroom norms when signing is appropriate.
