We are looking forward to seeing students back at school tomorrow, and to a wonderful week of learning ahead.
This week 5th graders can look forward to the much anticipated Science Camp-In on Friday night! Noetic Math starts on Wednesday this week after school. Also, the 2nd grade will attend the Learn to Swim program at the YMCA on Tuesdayand Thursday.
Our school is fortunate to have a beautiful courtyard as an outdoor learning space for students. We would like to get students involved in activities in the courtyard as often as possible now that the weather is nice. We are in need of donations of time or materials. If you would like to help in any way please contact the school or complete the form on our school website. Also, we will have a community clean-up day from 9-12 on Saturday, April 16th. All are welcome to come help beautify our courtyard!
STEM camp is a fabulous week long summer opportunity for students in Goochland County. If your child is interested in attending STEM camp, then please turn in the permission slip by April 15th. Students brought home the permission slip before spring break, and it is posted on the school website.
The month of April BES will participate in a plastic water bottle recycling drive. Classrooms will collect plastic water bottles. The classroom with the most water bottles collected by Earth Day on Friday, April 22nd will earn extra recess!
In just two short weeks our school will host another book fair! The Book Fair will last from April 18th to the 22nd. Classes will visit the Book Fair during the school day. We look forward to seeing everyone at school the night of Tuesday, April 19th for the Peace, Love, and Books family event. Come on up to BES with your entire family from 5:30-7 to eat dinner, participate in numerous craft stations, listen to stories, get groovy at a dance fever party, visit the Book Fair, and then stay for the PTA meeting at 7:00. The Book Fair is a fund raiser, so every book purchased helps our school! Also, if you are interested in volunteering at the Book Fair then please complete the form posted on our school website.
Thanks for listening and have a great week!
