Paperless registration will occur this year, please be patient and we will send more information as the date nears.
Be sure to visit the Book Fair during the PTO Pancake Breakfast!
Books are Buy One Get One FREE! All purchases benefit our School Library.
Makerspace: A place where students can access materials, construct, build, and apply their thinking in a collaborative manner.
The Plan: Glass shelves have been removed and wood shelves in. Tables for working space in the commons, baskets and bins are filled with materials ranging from cotton balls to sticks to glue and tools. Students have open access to these materials during project or collaboration time during their learning day.
Trust: Trust is at the center of Reggio influence where we speak highly of the image of a child. The BSE staff has engaged in great discussion around our image of a child the remainder of the year. Our quest is to shift the child to the center of all that we do where they are trusted and given choice throughout their learning environment.
