What happened to February?
Thank you for your support of our Read-a-Thon! This event was created by Literacy Team to create excitement about reading and to help build student reading stamina. I hope that your family will continue to encourage your child to read at home even when this event had come to an end.
Friday, March 3rd is our Book Character Parade Day! Please help your child dress up and bring a copy of the book with them to school to carry during the parade. If you are running tight on time, remember that there are a lot of books with characters who wear regular clothes! Grab a shirt the right color and you are good to go!
BCS STEM DAY - March 4
Please encourage your child to look for their missing jackets and shirts in our Lost and Found! We are overflowing and would like to get these items claimed!
March Math Madness Event - Math Fluency Matters!
During the month of March, classrooms will focus on math fluency. Your child will bring home materials and/or games to help them learn their math facts at home!
