End of the Year Message

We are rounding 3rd and heading home! The summer is almost here. We have a lot of wonderful things ahead of us this month and we looking forward to sharing the memories with you!

Each week in the "Week in Review" we talk about staying focused and keeping our composure as we work through the school day. With summer sun in our sights, that is even more important. Let's end this year on a positive note and make the most out of our time at BTES.

Congratulations to all of our 6th grade students who are graduating and moving on to Central Regional Middle School. Your fun loving personalities will be missed! Enjoy the summer and good luck next year!

This summer we challenge all of you to spend time with your families and enjoy all that our community has to offer. Read a new book, take a walk, relax on the beach, swim in the pool, ride a bike, or even catch up on some much needed sleep! Whatever you do, make it amazing :)

The Nurse's Nook!

Important End of the Year Reminder:

--Your child’s unused medication must be picked up by June 21st or it will be discarded.

--Next school year, you must submit new medication forms signed by your child’s doctor to continue to have medication kept in school. The nurse cannot dispense cough drops or apply sunscreen without a doctor’s order.

--All medication must be labeled properly by the pharmacy with the child’s name on the original container and dropped off at school by a responsible adult. Medication should not be sent in with a student.

--If your child no longer has a food allergy, asthma, or other medical concern, please send in a doctor’s note with this information so we may remove this diagnosis from their record.

--You may print out medication forms from the district website at Click the Parent tab, then click Health Services, and then Health Forms.

If you have any questions, please call the nurse at 732-269-2909 Ext. 2005.

Congressman MacArthur's Reading Challenge

Congressman Tom MacArthur is sponsoring a reading challenge for all students in the Third Congressional District. Students are asked to read 3 books and submit the form below by March 16, 2018 in order to receive a Congressional Certificate. This is a wonderful way to recognize your child's reading accomplishments! Thank you and Happy Reading!!

Reminder: Cell Phone Procedures

At BTES we have decided to create a user friendly cell phone rule. We have shared this with the students on multiple occasions and want to make sure that we are all on the same page. When students bring their phones to school, they should be set off and kept in their bookbag during the school day. When riding the bus, the students may use their phones for music ONLY! There should be no games, calling, texting, photographing, or video taping on the bus. While using their phones for music they MUST ALSO have an earbud in one ear, leaving the other ear open for messages or announcements.

If this rule is not followed, we will be forced to eliminate the use of all phones while on school property.

Thank you for your continued support.
