CCEP Carnival Party Grade 1 - 4

Carnival is coming up and we would like to invite all primary students to our "funtastic" CCEP Carnival Party, on Tuesday, February 9th 2016, from 3 pm to 5 pm.

The event will take place in the cafeteria where various fun games, arts and crafts, as well as face painting will be offered. Of course, some sweets and a disco with lots of music will also be provided for our children.

Dress up as your favorite character and join us! The students will have the opportunity to get changed shortly before the party starts.

We are looking forward to celebrating Carnival with you!

"Star Wars meets Horse Riders meets Pop Stars!"

It's on Tuesday, February 9th at 3:30 pm in the Mini-Gym (5th Floor.)

We encourage dressing up as a Star Wars character, a Horse Rider of any kind and/or Pop Star in line with the theme in order to create a special atmosphere. Feel free, however, to dress up as you please!

Family Literacy Day

Thank you to our parents who helped make our first BMS Family Literacy Day a special event! We had readers, word games and an author visit. The literacy event will continue into the holidays with our Family Literacy Bingo game that students brought home on Wednesday. It should be returned to the class teacher on or before Wednesday, February 10th. We hope students and families will take some quality time to become expert bingo players, readers and writers. Below please find a great literacy games link that will surely help make the Family Literacy Bingo fun for all.

We are proud of our writers and readers. As you can see, they love to read at all times and in all positions!
