Dear Hawk Families,

Subject: Your Vote Counts 2022! Less Than Two Week Left to Turn In Your Ballot!
As you have read in previous communications, ballots are out for this year's election and 27J is seeking a mill levy override (Question 5B on the ballot). Should this pass, Bromley may receive approximately $1,000,000 annually in additional revenue. These additional dollars would go toward attracting and retaining quality staff for our students, safety and security, as well as supporting programs and building needs. It is critical that we are able to compete with other District and Charter schools for quality staff amidst a teacher shortage. Thank you for considering this question and be sure to complete and return your ballots. More information regarding this year's election and voting timelines can be found in this letter.

GRADE LEVEL INFORMATION:
Elementary Halloween Parade:
On Monday, October 31st, Kindergarten and First Grade will be participating in a Halloween Parade through the school and then outside for parents to see. The details below outline when the parade will occur, as well as the outside route where parents can observe the parade.
K-1st will have a parade around the school beginning at 8:45 am
The parade route outside of the school is found HERE
Grades 2-5 are able to observe the parade outside on the designated parade path
Grades 6-8 can observe from their designated hallways with the K & 1st graders walking down the two middle school hallways
ALL Students K-8 will be able to wear costumes, so long as the costumes follow the BECS Halloween guidelines.
Teachers may also wear costumes (criteria will be the same)

No parents will be allowed to attend the Halloween parties
Parents may line up on the parade path outside the building, however, we are not having parents at classroom parties
Snacks should be very minimal to avoid the many drop-offs at the front office.
Please do not send your student with a lot of candy on 11/1 to avoid disruptions to learning during the days following Halloween.
Thanksgiving Food Drive
November 1st marks the day that all students at BECS must have current immunizations on file or complete the exemption paperwork.
