From the PTO
Dear Fantastic BPE Families,
I hope that everyone had a terrific twentieth week of school. Below we have an updated request for volunteers for the Science Olympiad. Additionally, please keep the next PTO meeting (February 8) and Burns Park Saturday at the PTO Thrift Shop (February 25) on your calendar.
Register Now for Science Olympiad!
Science Olympiad registration remains open through Friday, February 3. Use this form to register. Emails will go out the week of February 6th, informing everyone of their events and practice times.
There was an error on the last email that we sent. All events practice only once a week. Most practices will be on Sundays afternoons. Please indicate on the form whether you want to participate but cannot make it Sundays or have other barriers.
We still need several coaches or we will have to cancel some events. If there is an event your child is interested in, please consider coaching. The time commitment is 1hour a week, plus some prep time (varies by event). You do not have to have a science background. We'll help you get everything you need! Use this form to sign up to coach.
If you have any questions, email us: email@example.com
