May 16 Curriculum Spotlight

Dr. Zito sent out an email earlier this evening with some information about the May 16 Curriculum Night. We want this night to be a fun information session for parents and students where they can see first hand some of the great things we have going on in our district! We are looking for volunteers to present during an open information session. Parents and students will be able to walk through the cafeteria at BTES and stop to look at various tables showcasing these programs.

If you would be interested in presenting please complete this form (you must be logged in to your BTBOE account to have access) or talk to us this week. Thank you!

Staff Dress Code

As the school year winds down we are asking the entire district to remember to keep the dress code in mind. Please remember that jeans are not to be worn other than on designated "jeans days," and not all Spirit Days are jeans days. Also items such as yoga pants, sweats, etc. should not be worn. We will have many visitors to the building in the next month, and adhering to the dress code helps to convey our professionalism.

Save your Crayons!

As a school we will be participating in The Crayon Initiative which takes old broken crayons and melts them into new crayons to be donated to children's hospitals, schools and other children's organizations. Please avoid throwing out any broken crayons, and stay tuned for more information!
