Message from the office.

Hello BCE Community

Wow, it has been a hot one on campus. Thank you to all the staff at BCE for helping keep our kiddos as cool as possible. We have had indoor PE, misters under the shade structures, water to run through at lunch, and moved classes around to rooms with AC. We currently have 6 classrooms without portable AC units. We are working closely with the District Office to get them ordered and installed. We are hopeful they will be available in the coming weeks. Please know that the safety of all our students is our biggest priority, and we have done everything possible to ensure everyone is safe and hydrated this past week.

We will have our first student Bear Paw store this Friday. Students will have a chance to spend all the Bear Paws they have been earning on prizes. Please let me or Dawn from Parent Club know if you are interested in volunteering to support the store. We would love your help.

Big Reminder that Band starts next week.

As always, please let us know if you need anything. Have a great weekend

Mrs. Fippin and Office Staff
