BBE Weekly Update

April 26 - 30


READ-a-THION - This is the last week for the student Read-a-Thon. We have had a great experience with this first-ever event. Students are taking charge and owning their reading. We LOVE seeing their passion and ownership for reading. As of today, we have raised $11,020, and our students have logged 33,988minutes. We will be sending you your child's teacher code through School messenger.

Book Fair Recap - Wow! We had another successful book fair. BBE has lots of happy kiddos. Thank you BBE families for helping to grow your child's home library and our classroom libraries. Readers are leaders!

Bus Driver Shoutouts - If you would like to email a thank you note to our bus drivers for their service this year, you can send your "shoutout" to this email address. They are having an end-of-the-year banquet, and our director of transportation would like to shower our drivers with thank you notes or shoutouts from the parents and kids. Our drivers would love to hear from you!

Virtual Talent Show Entries - See the flyer below for details about our Virtual Talent Show for this year. The deadline for uploading entries is this Friday, April 30, 2021.
