- The Goochland Christmas Mother has asked us to donate canned goods and pork and beans this year. If you are able to send in a donation it is greatly appreciated. Virtual students can bring their donations to the front door and we will gladly make sure they are added to our BES donations.
- We will be serving 7 days of breakfast and lunch on November 23rd with no curbside meal pick up on November 26th. see the flyer here
- Click here to review our GCPS Return to School Covid-19 Matrix. This is helpful information to know what to do if your child has any symptoms listed in our daily health survey.
- As you know, GCPS is committed to providing diverse role models to our students. Do you know any great adults from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds who would be perfect for this? Please share this link with them https://forms.gle/XuKnKyDq5sJnFGvx7 so that they can share their willingness to positively impact the youth of Goochland! No contribution of time is too big or too small.
Lastly, our celebration of Family Engagement in Education month wraps up this week. This week we have 2 great opportunities for families. On Wednesday we will discuss supporting your child as a reader and Mrs. Whitfield, a GCPS PreK-12 Instructional Coach will share tips and tricks on reading with your child at home. On Thursday BES very own Mrs. Gordon will host a seminar to share the Brain Smart Model. You will learn about how to use choice, connection, and calming in order to turn power struggles into warm, loving experiences in which your child will be able to use higher-order brain systems to be ready to learn and handle problem solving. This seminar is geared towards our earliest learners ages 0-5 but all are welcome!
