Message from the office.

Hello BCE Community.

Another busy couple of weeks at BCE.

Thank you to everyone dressed for the Ugly Winter Outfit day today. So fun seeing everyone's outfits.

We also had a great Bear Paw Store today. Kids had a blast spending the well-earned Bear Paws. Thank you to all the families that have donated to the store. It has been such a big help.

Thank you to everyone that has donated cans for the food drive. We are still counting but we have over 2,000 cans.

We have had a lot of sick kids and staff these past couple of weeks. Please make sure you are calling the attendance line.

We need snacks in the office again. We have so many students who come into the office daily to get snacks, which we provide through donations. If you have any snacks if your home or are willing to help out, we would love them here in the office to share with all of our BCE friends.

The state has provided COVID tests for all students for the winter break. We will be sending 2 COVID tests home will all students. We are hoping you will test your student before returning in January.

As always, please let us know if you need anything. Have a great weekend. I will likely not send another message before the winter break, so have a happy, safe, and restful holiday. I can't wait to see everyone in 2023. Please remember we return on Tuesday, January 10th.

Mrs. Fippin and Office Staff

Movie Party

We will be celebrating our amazing can food drive on 12/22. We will be showing the Polar Express and drinking hot chocolate and popcorn in the MU. If you do not wish for your child to participate, please get in touch with your child's teacher. We will have alternative fun activities for them to participate in.

Lost and Found

We will donate all the lost and found left over the holiday break. Please take a moment before the break to check out the lost and found. We have a lot of great coats.

Resources for learning at home

We thought we share a few online resources you might utilize at home. These are just ideas, but they are great ways to continue the practice at home during long breaks. Feel free to reach out to your teacher if you have particular things you would like your students to work on.

Please see the email provided by the Superintendent this week. Emergency procedures were detailed, and the District webpage has been updated.

I wanted to ensure you got the information from the district office regarding General COVID information. Please contact the health office if you have any questions or need any home COVID tests. We have plenty in the office. I also want to ensure all families receive the General COVID exposure notice. Please let us know if you have any questions.
