Kindergarten Roundup

Please join us on April 11th at 6:30 pm to learn more about BBE and how you can help your child prepare for Kindergarten. We ask that only families of incoming kindergarteners attend. There will be a brief presentation followed by a question and answer session. The presentation will be posted on BBE's website following the meeting for those unable to attend. Please use the cafeteria entrance on the Tree Lane side of the building.

Families will also have the opportunity to go for a ride on a school bus around the neighborhood!
