Attach your ornament to your gift and bring it back by to school by December 17th.

Clubs Corner

Fall clubs are off to a fantastic start! Students have been working hard and having fun for five weeks in a variety of areas. Students are creating wonderful art projects, using their creativity in building various structures, sharpening chess skills, learning what it takes to run a successful business, reading and analyzing characters in a story, and exercising outside while getting better at sports. We have hit the halfway point and have five more sessions to go. We thank the students for their hard work and dedication along with the parents for providing transportation after school. Awesome start and excited to finish strong!

The Nurse's Nook!

The Mobile Dentist is coming to BTES! The Mobile Dentist will be here on Friday, January 25, 2019. Forms will be sent home following the Thanksgiving Break and must be returned by December 21, 2018 if you are interested in having your child see the Mobile Dentist.

Thank you to all who helped support our lollipop fundraiser! We managed to raise $610 to donate to the Ocean of Love Foundation supporting local families with children diagnosed with pediatric cancer. Thank you all so much!

PTA Bingo Night is coming soon - November 13th for Grade 5 and November 14th for Grade 6. We look forward to seeing you all there!


Congratulations to all of October's Top Dogs. We appreciate your efforts!

Just a reminder that the Top Dog's each month will be honored at our PTA Meetings. The same day the students will be treated to a pizza lunch! Keep up all the great work!

After School Sports With Mr. Prima and Mr. Waldron

Each week Mr. Prima and Mr. Waldron will be staying after to play sports with the students for 1 hour (1:50-2:50). Permission slips will go home and teachers are asked to pick one student from those interested to stay after each week. Transportation is NOT provided for this activity. Parents must pick their children up at 2:50. We look forward to having some fun!

Reminder: Cell Phone Procedures

At BTES we have decided to create a user friendly cell phone rule. When students bring their phones to school, they should be set off and kept in their bookbag during the school day. When riding the bus, the students may use their phones for music ONLY! There should be no games, calling, texting, photographing, or video taping on the bus. While using their phones for music they MUST ALSO have an earbud in one ear, leaving the other ear open for messages or announcements.

If this rule is not followed, we will be forced to eliminate the use of all phones while on school property.

Thank you for your continued support.
