What a creative way to study rock cycles?!?
Math is Art
Math is everywhere...
Why not create with it?
Thank you to Mrs. Foley's class for taking on the Crayola marker recycling project this year. This project allows us to recycle dried up markers instead of placing them in landfills.
Dear Boone Meadow Families -
I hope you have enjoyed your weekend. It is hard to believe that we are simply four school days away from Spring Break. Please note that the next "Friday Flyer" (school newsletter) will be after we return from Spring Break.
ZCS "Do Day"- A special thank you message made its way to students in Mrs. Adams' third grade classroom this week. Following their project of thanks to the Boone County Sheriff's Office, they paid a visit to extend their gratitude. Read more and view the video below.
Recess Equipment Donation Drive - A hearty "Thank you to PTO & BME families!" You have done it again! Thank you to everyone that donated to our recess equipment drive. We are organizing all the items received and will distribute to classrooms soon. Thank you to Mrs. Bernard for inflating all the soccer balls and basketballs between answering the phone. If you haven't dropped off your items yet, you can send them into school with your child or you can leave them at one of these locations:
EAGLES NEST: 7803 Eagles Nest Blvd
BLACKSTONE: 7484 Independence Dr
CLARK MEADOWS: 6328 Primrose Dr
Kindergarten "Strong Start" & Incoming Kindy Registration - Our numbers keep climbing! Thank you for continuing to spread the word to your friends and family that live within ZCS boundaries that they can register their new students for August. Early registration assists us in planning and preparation for the upcoming school year. Read more in the section below and share with your neighbors and community friends.
NWEA testing window began on Monday, March 15th, and continues through April 1st.
End of 3rd Quarter was March 12th - We are now in quarter 4, and student progress reports were released in PowerSchool on March 23rd.

Crosswalk Safety Guidance
Dear Families of BME Walkers & Bike Riders –
Safety is one of our highest concerns for students and staff at BME. Please read carefully in effort to partner for your child’s safety as they utilize the crosswalk, especially during dismissal at the end of the day.
- In effort to provide families the opportunity to utilize the car rider line on tricky weather days (or dodge construction on fire hydrants), all walkers/bikers will be dismissed last each day. You will note that our car line will have approximately 10-20 cars remaining in line when we call walkers/bikers from their classrooms for dismissal. This results in your child leaving the building and being escorted to the crosswalk 5-10 minutes later than you are currently accustomed.
- Secondly and whenever possible, please meet your child(ren) at the crosswalk. BME staff can assist students to the edge of school property, and they will serve to assist students as they cross South Main Street. As we consider the safety of students and staff, we are unable to assist students to the pool/playground parking lot at Clark Meadows as BME staff cannot be liable for safety (crossing streets, traffic, etc…) once off school property.
As always, we thank you for your partnership as we strive to keep students and staff safe.
