Message from Dr. Kaminski

BSE Parents and Community,

I want to thank all of you wonderful parents who have dropped off donations for our Collaboratory over the past few weeks. We have filled our bins and our students are enjoying using the new items for construction. Please continue to bring donations, as we will always need them. We need a steady flow of glue sticks, Q-tips, cotton balls, Popsicle sticks, or anything you see that can be used to create!

Thank you to everyone who supported our students in last night's Science Fair. There was a tremendous showing of support and the event was amazing. I sat with almost every student, listened to their presentations, and was completely blown away. Our science thinkers were impressive to say the least!

I wish you a wonderful, warm weekend and thank you all for supporting our BSE Bears!


Dr. Kaminski

Congratulations Science Fair Winners!

It's a quick, easy way to earn money for BSE. If you have been saving box tops, its time to turn them in. If you haven't - start clipping! Box tops can be found on hundreds of grocery and household products such as Green Giant veggies, Nature Valley granola products, Annie's Organic items and much much more.

Please clip box tops as close to the dotted line as possible, make sure your submitted box tops are not expired, and send in with your student either affixed to the collection sheet or in a Ziploc baggie in groups of 25. Either way, make sure to label your submission with your child's name, homeroom teacher, and grade level so they get credit.

Prizes will be awarded for the top individual students, as well as a for the top collecting classroom. Collection runs between now and spring break.
