Peachjar E-Flyers

Parents: please be reminded that LTISD is now using Peachjar, an innovative flyer management system that sends district- and school-approved digital flyers directly to parents via email. This ‘green’ initiative will save paper and reduce copy costs for our schools and community partners.


Please note, with the implementation of Peachjar, mass paper copies will no longer be provided to teachers or staff for distribution in elementary school Tuesday Folders. As a result, elementary school Tuesday Folders will be re-purposed to their original intended use—the dissemination of classroom materials such as reading logs, worksheets and other academic resources. All other non-instructional materials will be delivered electronically via Peachjar.


By default, all parents will be opted-in to the system. No action is required on your part. If you have children in more than one school, you will automatically receive digital flyers from each campus. Flyers will also be posted on each campus website, and flyers will also be accessible via the district's mobile app.


Should you have any questions or concerns about the use of Peachjar, please contact our Office of Community Programs via email or by phone at 512-533-6011.

Holidays Around the World

We would love to recognize the different ways our families celebrate during the upcoming holidays! It would be an honor to display decorations, pictures or artifacts that represent the different cultures in our community for the holiday season. Please keep in mind, we do not have much room to display items, so choose carefully. If you would like your item returned to you, please make sure your name and contact information are located somewhere on the item. We have already started collecting items, and will have displays set up in the front foyer and cafeteria for all to enjoy a couple of weeks before the winter break. If you have questions about what to share, please email Mrs. Andjelic at andjelicj@ltisdschools.org.

Volunteers Needed for BCE Book Writers Competition

If you're looking for a way to help our school, we are looking for volunteers to oversee the book writers competition. It's a great, short-term volunteer effort that encourages creativity and writing skills for our students. Please email Mrs. Andjelic if you are interested at andjelicj@ltisdschools.org. Thanks for your help!

Mile Run Volunteers Needed!

We will be running the timed Mile run on our new outdoor track during students PE class. We need about 10 parents per class to mark students as they complete a lap. Students must complete 8.5 laps to complete a mile. Parents stand and mark the masking tape on students shoulder as they pass, and when a student has completed 8 laps or 8 marks, they will come off the track at the half way mark where Mrs. Daniels and Coach Nelson will be recording names and times of the runners.


Students will be divided into two 20 minute races. We would appreciate your help if you could volunteer.


Red & Green Specials groups run the mile on Monday, December 11th, 2017

Morning Drop-Off Reminders

Here are a few things to remember about morning drop-off:


  • There are student drop-off locations in the front and back of the building. Please do not drop-off in the back before 7:20. If you need to drop-off early, students can wait in the front foyer until the doors open.
  • Students should not be let out of the car in the front parking lot. All students should be dropped-off in either of the car rider lines.
  • Your child(ren) should be prepared to exit the vehicle, so we can keep the lines moving. If you need to assist your child(ren) in anyway, we ask that you park and walk your child(ren) to the crosswalk.

Thank you for your help in ensuring morning drop-off is safe and efficient for everyone!

Apex Results!!

The Apex results have been collected and are in! We are happy to report, BCE made $61,000 this year! WAY TO GO BOBCATS! This money will go towards technology for the classrooms, tutoring, field trip transportation and bringing more outside consulting in for our students! Our teachers also received 10% of their total classroom donations via a cash gift card this past week, that they can use to spend directly on their classrooms. We could not do this without the support of our Bobcat families. THANK YOU!!!!!

Front Row Parking Spot

Congrats to Rachel Pepper, the winner of the front row parking spot for the month of December. Thank you for your support! The bidding for a front row spot for January is officially open! Who wants a spot nice and close when the weather gets colder? Bid HERE!

PTO Purchase Spotlight

This month’s PTO Purchase Spotlight highlights Professional Development. The BCE PTO paid to send some of our fabulous upper grade teachers to the CAST Conference (Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching ) in Houston, TX just this past month in November. CAST is widely regarded as the largest and best regional science teachers meeting in all of the United States! At this conference, our teachers had access to more than 700 TEKS-aligned workshops (divided by grade level and subject area), STEM content, lesson plans, handouts for classrooms, and access to listen to some great keynote speakers! We know they came back with some great information to share and bring into our classrooms!

Save the Date!

Save the Date for our 3rd Annual Father/Daughter Dance at Bee Cave Elementary. Mark your calendars for Saturday February 3, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 pm in the Gym. Tickets will go on sale December 17.
