Thank you to all BTES Staff for organizing holiday family events during the school day! The 5th grade families worked very hard on Gingerbread houses. Wow did they turn out awesome! The 6th grade teachers set up holiday STEM activities for the students and their parents to work on! These were really fun and challenging!

Student Council Updates
The next project for our Student Council will be helping with Fun Fest. The students will be working to promote the event and help coordinate however possible!
The students meet monthly as an executive board and each marking period as a general assembly. So far the program is off to a great start!

Highlight on Asthma in Cold Weather
Cold weather can be a trigger for asthma. Other asthma triggers include exercise, allergens such as dust mites, pollen, or mold, pet dander, colds/flu, or odors such as perfume, cigarette smoke, or smoke from burning wood. If your child uses a rescue inhaler, please make sure the school nurse has one at school in case it is needed. Talk to your child’s doctor and update their Asthma Treatment Plan if needed. Please ensure the school nurse has an updated copy of your child’s Asthma Treatment Plan. A copy of this form can be found on the district webpage under the Parents tab and Health Services. Please call the nurse with any further questions at 732-269-2909, ext. 2005.
