Mr. Prima started his Rubix Cube Club and had almost 30 students stay to learn the art of Rubix! Each session ended with a timed race for the students who can complete the cube to try and beat their best time!
Basketball started up for after school sports with Mr. Waldron and Mr. Prima. We have had a great variety of students stay and play this month!
Officer Scott got started with his DARE Program at BTES. The students are loving their time with him so far and are looking forward to an awesome year ahead!

The Nurse's Nook!
Just a friendly reminder that all medications, prescription and over the counter, require a doctor's note to be administered by the school nurse. All medications must be dropped off by a Parent or Guardian to the school nurse. The Medication Consent Form can be found on the District Website under the Parents Tab, Health Services, and under Health Forms. Page one of the medication consent form must be completed by the student's Physician.

This month the PTA will be continuing their focus on soliciting donations for Fun Fest. Fun Fest is BTES' biggest PTA fundraiser where most of the money for our school's events is raised. We will be accepting prize donations for the students, gift cards, toys, and sports equipment! Please help our PTA out for this amazing event!
Orders for new spirit wear will be available this month. We will have our new logo and some fun new colors!
There will also be booster forms for the yearbook going out this month.

Thank you and have fun!
KINDNESS CASH IS HERE
This month, Mrs. Kakos is running a program called Kindness Cash. Throughout the month of February, the students, staff, families, and visitors to the building will have a chance to anonymously write out something nice about somebody else in the building. Mrs. Kakos will then sort these compliments and deliver them to the homerooms where they will be hung in the hallway for all to see.
This is an excellent opportunity for BTES to spread positivity and make someone smile. We can't wait to get started!
