Message from the office.
Hello BCE Community-
We had a wonderful awards assembly this morning to honor those student that have worked hard to show Gratitude this month. The BCE WAY character traits assemblies are one way we honor our students each month. We also presented running club awards for the first time. We have started running club this year every Monday at lunch recess. Students can run, walk , or just have a talk with friends as they go around the field. We had several students get awards for 5 and 10 miles today. Way to go BCE Bears.
Everyone should have received a report card today. If you have any questions please contact your teacher directly. Our students have worked so hard this year. Please take a moment to celebrate your child's success.
I hope everyone has a chance to relax, be with family and have a chance to recognize everything you are thankful for. The staff and I at BCE are so thankful for the community and entrusting us with your children everyday. We hope you have the best of Holiday and a nice week off.
Please remember we do not have school on Next Week.
Have a great Holiday Break
I can be reached best by email at email@example.com

Boulder Creek STEAM EXPO
February 14-15, 2024
Online Registration (Due Dec 20)
Do you love science experiments? Inventing things? Engineering to solve a problem?
If so, this is for you! Any student can participate, TK-5th grade. In addition to traditional projects that follow the scientific method or engineering design process, the STEAM Expo invites projects that are demonstrations or inventions/creations that do not necessarily include testing or evaluating for effectiveness. The STEAM Expo enables students to explore their interests and talents by offering different project types and categories from which students can choose, many of which are directly tied to categories represented in California Science and Engineering Fair (CSEF), the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and the Invention Convention.
Choose a topic. Students, think about what interests you. What are you curious about? What do you enjoy learning or doing? If you want some ideas, you can visit sciencebuddies.org for ideas on traditional science fair projects as well as STEM activities for ‘Showcase’ projects. **NOTE: Projects involving the growth of unknown mold, fungus or bacteria will NOT be allowed AT ALL! Ask if you're not sure about your project. Safety at home Blog post.
Traditional Science Projects begin with the Scientific Process.

Boulder Creek Elementary
Flue season is here-
RSV is one of the respiratory illness going around- Please take a moment to read the attached documents so you can know what is going on
We know people get sick, people get injured, and there can be family or life responsibilities and other issues that are reasonable and excused.
But if your student can attend, they need to be in school.
If your student is out for three or more consecutive days, we may request a doctor's note to continue excusing the absences.
Students who miss 3-5 days will receive a Chronic Absence letter. We will then meet with those families to attempt to support the student attending school. On the second Chronic Absence Letter, families may be required to meet at the District Office to put a plan in place for the student's attendance. On the third Chronic Absence Letter, families may be required to meet with the County Office Student Attendance Review Board for truancy.
Our goal is that nobody ever gets that far along with truancy. We are here to help and support, but it does start at home with the expectation that your student will attend school regularly.
