Please remember if you are visiting BES for lunch, field days or chaperoning a field trip that your dress should be appropriate for school. If the administration determines that the attire is inappropriate, you will be asked to correct the situation to remain at the school event.
We appreciate your help and attentiveness to this matter as we end the school year on a positive note.
Field Day/End of Year Reminders:
Please make sure students are prepared for field days and end of the year parties. We will be spending time outside the last week of school - students can and should bring water bottles, sunscreen should be applied before students come to school, and please make sure they are wearing clothing appropriate for being outside (gym shoes, shorts,shirts)

Consistently attending school is an important factor in your child’s success at school. Please join BES this year as we focus on reducing chronic absenteeism by promoting a positive atmosphere for learning and reducing barriers that prevent students from attending school on a regular basis.
Spring Attendance Tournament of Champions - We are having a friendly competition among grade levels to determine the Spring Attendance Grand Champion. This five week round robin tournament will feature head-to-head competitions each week. After week one, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades have taken an early lead. Overall, our weekly attendance was one of the best of the year so far!
We are currently 1 letter away from meeting ATTENDANCE again for our school wide dance party! We are tracking our school attendance with a goal of 94% of our students being in school for the entire day.
When we reach 94% we earn a letter, and when we spell ATTENDANCE, we get to dance! The dance party takes place during morning announcements.
