Pandas of the Week

Congratulations to our Pandas of the Week. We have the BESt students in the world!

The Gaga Pit is Here!

The kids were so excited to have the Gaga Pit that PTO purchased for us installed and ready to use. Our PTO was able to provide this new addition to recess for our kids because of all of your support during our BoosterThon. Thank you parents and PTO for this great new activity for our kids to enjoy during recess.

A Peek Inside Our School

Morning Car Riders

Instruction begins right at 7:45. It is very important that you child is here and in class ready to learn before 7:45 so that they do not miss any instruction. Please help us to ensure the best instruction for your child by ensuring that your child is dropped up with plenty of time to get to class before 7:45.

5th Grade GT Testing

Students that have been notified that they are taking the GT test will be testing on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Please have them get a good night's sleep, eat a good breakfast and be present on on time for school.

Family Literacy Night

Thank you to all that were able to come out for our Family Literacy Night. I hope that you enjoyed it and picked up a few tips to help your child with literacy.

It's Been a Great Week at BES!!

Good Afternoon,

We had a wonderful Literacy Week at BES! Thank you to all that were able to attend our Family Literacy Night. We hope you enjoyed it.

Today, I ran the next round of Progress Reports. It should have come to your email if we have a correct email in Power School. Please keep in mind, the grades are the year to date grades for your child. To see their 3rd Quarter Grades, you will need to log in to Parent Portal. I hope you find this report helpful. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have questions.

Please know that we value your input. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions, please let us know. You can email us or call us anytime. We will respond within 48 hours of receiving the message. At BES, our mission is to partner with the home and community to provide a safe, supportive and innovative learning environment to ensure ALL students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and core values needed for success. These actions will enable us to reach of vision of creating a learning community that to Believe in themselves, Excel in performance, and Succeed in life.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
