The B.Y.E. Buzz

Bernice Young Elementary Newsletter 9/14/20

Principal Corner

We had another great week at B.Y.E. The kids seem happy and are following our safety protocols with minimal reminders.

Student-Led Conferences are September 21-22 from 3:00-6:30. In order to keep us all safe, we will do these meetings virtually. Teachers will send a sign-up via email for conferences on Monday, September 14th. Families will receive a video from the teacher to answer overall questions about the classroom. Please watch this before your scheduled conference Zoom meeting. The Zoom meetings will focus on your child, his/her progress, and goals. Students will attend Zoom meetings with families so they can share some of this information. Please schedule a time when your child(ren) can join you for the meeting.

MAP testing will take place over the next few weeks. Different grades test on different days. Teachers will share testing information with you.

Let us know if you have any questions.
