Message from Dr. Kaminski
BSE Parents and Community,
Thanks to all of our BSE PTO volunteers and teachers for hosting a wonderful Pancake Breakfast last Saturday! I appreciate the community support during this event and we had a wonderful time!
Please feel free to join us for the PTO Meeting next Tuesday, March 14th, at 6:30 p.m. Our Robotics Team, led by Mrs. Porzuczek, will share their journey. We are thrilled with their work and enthusiasm for our first ever robotics competition team!
I am also excited to announce that BSE has officially agreed to develop a formal partnership with a school in Ningbo China that will begin next August. Thank you to the many families who emailed me, interested in housing our guests next fall. Details will be coming in May and I'll be reaching out to all of you for your help. This is a wonderful opportunity for our Brooks School Bears!
Our first wave of ISTEP has been completed and next week all of our 3rd grade students will take the IREAD exams. Please keep your eyes on the clock as we change time Sunday, and allow your kiddos good opportunities to get their clocks changed internally.
Have a wonderful weekend BSE!
Thank you, Allisonville Eye Care Center!
