Save the Date: BES Multicultural Night
Reminder - Save the Date: BES Multicultural Night - May 9th (5:30-7:00 pm)
On May 9, 2024, we will be having a multicultural night to celebrate all the amazing cultures not only in our building but around the world. Each grade level will be learning about a country on the continent they are studying. Alongside what they learn in class they will be creating art work that aligns with the country. We want to give families the opportunity to share their culture with the BES community. If your family or a cultural organization that you're apart of is interested in participating in any of the following ways, please indicate all that apply below. We will contact you with more information soon. Thank you and we look forward to seeing lots of different expressions of culture from within our community!

Support Your Child’s Classroom with TSCs
Our PTA Teacher Support Committees (TSC) partner willing parents with teacher/staff teams to expedite creative problem solving within the school and benefit every student in the building.
Being a TSC member is easy – contact your grade/team captain to join the committee email list, and they’ll send you a variety of opportunities to help out as they arise. A fun and flexible way to directly impact our classrooms, on your schedule!
Grade/team wish lists and captain contact info are available at https://briarcliff.memberhub.com/w/tsc.
