Principal Update

Dear Parent(s), Guardian(s), & Students, ​


It has been a one-of-a-kind, whirlwind, crazy, fun, and like no other kind of school year. I am so thankful for all of your support and I am incredibly proud of our students and staff this year. We sure have a lot to celebrate!


Report cards and progress notes will be emailed home by June 17 for all students. SBAC & IRI test results will be sent home with students by the last day of school. Please stop by to check the lost & found collection too before it is donated (see pictures below).


Over the summer, please check our website and calendar (also on the website) for back to school updates. We are all hoping to return to school five days per week and to start the 2021-22 school year with our traditional open house celebration night on August 27th.


Please encourage your child to continue reading throughout the summer and see how many items he/she can check off from the PTA Summer Bucket List below. Have a safe and great summer! ​

Field Day

On June 4th, the M/W students will be participating in a variety of physical education activities, known as Field Day, outside on the BRMES playground. Your child may want to dress in as much white as possible as we hope to have some 'color chalk' to decorate them and they may get messy! Families are invited to come help volunteer and capture the fun during your child's outdoor time. Schedule and Sign up is above.
