"Bear Essentials" Weekly e-Newsletter, August 16, 2019
It was great to see you at Back to School Night for 3rd-5th grade this week and I look forward to seeing our Pre-K through 2nd grade parents next week!
As the weather has been very hot this week, we have been reducing the amount of time that children spend outside. Please remember to send a reusable water bottle each day and dress your child in weather-appropriate clothing. If you need assistance with either of those things, please reach out to our counselors, Ms. Marantz and Ms. Penland.
I also hope to see all of our families at our first Spirit Night of the Year at 'Cue BBQ on Monday night! We so appreciate our PTO for arranging these special events for us. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

We Have a School Store
Berkeley Lake Recycles
Berkeley Lake recycles aluminum cans and old clothes and shoes (in any condition) in the two bins in the upper parking lot. The Green Team receives 10¢ per pound of donations, which helps pay the fee for the weekly paper and cardboard pick-up. The aluminum cans are recycled at Progressive Recycling on Simpson Circle. Please support our Green Team by recycling these items here at Berkeley Lake. Thank you!
Remember to Save Those Box Tops!
One easy way to support your school is through the PTO Box Tops for Education collection. Send in Box Tops from products you purchase. To help with counting, you can download this Box Tops Collection Sheet.
Make sure to put your Box Tops on the sheet or in a bag with your name and teacher on it. Drop it into the wooden box in the main hallway near the water fountain. Doing this automatically enters you into a contest.
Each month, we’ll hold a random drawing of all students who submit Box Tops. Winners will be announced on the morning announcements at the end of each month. The prize? A coupon for a free ice cream or an item from the student store. This fundraiser has helped us earn hundreds of dollars for our school!
