Message from Principal Wagner

Good evening BMES Families,


Thank you to all the families that came out to our Monster Mash. The PTA enjoys the opportunities to plan events for our families that students enjoy. Without the volunteers, this event would not have been a success!


The PTA is helping fund school assemblies for our students this school year. This week our PK-2nd grade students will participate in a school wide assembly through Arts for Learning based in Norfolk, VA. In addition, we will have a science assembly this Friday for our 2nd-5th grade students.


Coming up next Monday, we will have our rescheduled Fall Picture Day. Please be ready to have your child's picture taken on Monday, November 7.


Also, Tuesday, November 8 is Election Day. This is a student holiday so students will not be in school.


Have a great evening,

Mrs. Wagner
