Message from the office.

Hello BCE Community

It has been another busy week around BCE. Our students have been working hard to show great behavior, the BCE Way. We are well into our routines, loving our pullouts and making new friends. The hot weather will continue next week, so please ensure your students dress in the right clothes and have a water bottle and maybe a hat for recess.

We had an impromptu whole school popsicle party and a visit from Boulder Creek Fire to help us cool off this afternoon. So fun to have the kids getting cool together and showing how the BCE way is done. Thank you, BCE Fire, for helping us have a little fun and celebrating our good behavior.

I am excited to share that our primary music with Mr. Gonzalez will start on Monday, September 13th. Thank you, Parent Club, for your support in helping make this happen. So excited all of our students will have a music experience this year.

Remember Monday is a holiday, so NO SCHOOL. Have a great 3 day weekend.

As always, please let us know if you need anything. Have a great weekend

Mrs. Fippin and Office Staff
