STAR Testing

STAR Testing will begin for some of our 2/3 graders this week. The testing will run through next week.

Book Fair

It is that time of year again.....and boy is this year going to be filled with giveaways. The Book Fair will begin on February 18th and conclude on February 26th. We will have a character dress up day on February 23. A 1st and 2nd place winner will be picked in each grade level.....1st place will receive a 10.00 gift certificate to the Book Fair while 2nd place will receive a 5.00 gift certificate.

Late Arrival

Just a friendly reminder to all parents about late arrival. If you child arrives after the tardy bell, you will need to walk your child into the front office to sign them in. We always have supervision, during morning arrival. So, if you do not see faculty and staff outside, that is a sign that you will need to walk your child into the front office. We do not want any of our students coming in unsupervised. Thank you for your help with this issue.

Want a free Energy Kit

Recently, BSES had the National Children's Theater to share information about energy conservation at school. As part of this campaign, families could request their very own energy kit. So far, we have had 75 kits requested. Our school has been entered into a drawing for $10,000. For every additional 25 kits requested, we will be entered again. So, why not help our school and the family. Go to to get your free kit. The deadline is May 31, 2016.


We will not be having G-Tunes this semester.
