Message from Dr. Kaminski

Dear BSE Families,

October was fast and furious with conferences. It is my hope that your family is connected with your child's classroom and you were able to capture the learning process and end products while visiting. Students were proud to celebrate academic successes and teachers were able to communicate how you can continue to support any areas of growth.

November is a reminder that we always have things to be thankful for. I am thankful to work with a staff that is hungry to continue to grow. Our teachers are feeling confident in using devices to enhance best practices in order to create higher levels of engagement for all students. Teachers are excited to continue to strengthen our teaching practices on November 8 through a variety of professional development choices including experts such as Katie Muhtaris and Justin Tarte. Please remember Tuesday, November 8 is Election Day and students will not be in school.

As always, we appreciate your efforts at home to ensure success for your child academically and behaviorally. I am thankful for the collaborative effort from our BSE families.

Art to Remember


Your children recently brought home an order form showcasing his or her artwork. Though we have turned in the first order, there is still time to place a final "late" order to purchase a wonderful artwork keepsake and support the art program at BSE. You have until November 23rd to turn in your final order to the school. These final late orders are not guaranteed for holiday delivery.

You can also order any time online using your child's personal online order code. If you cannot find the order form or the code, please contact me for help.

Thank you,
