October 2018 Message from the President:

Hello BCE families!

I hope everyone is enjoying this cooler weather.  Not the rain so much! Our superhero traffic ladies are doing an amazing job keeping our kids safe from traffic, even in the pouring rain.

Boosterthon

Let’s talk about how GREAT our Boosterthon Fun Run obstacle course was this year!  You, my lovely families, are SUPER generous with your time and money, earning us a record amount of funds.  The total profits are over $25,000!! How does the PTA use this money, you ask? $3000 is earmarked to gift the music department with 15 MIDI keyboards for Mr. Sampson’s music department for all grades to use.
The rest of the profits fund our teacher and classroom support expenses around $14,000 and student programs and events at $10.000.  If you’re checking my math, we’re still a bit short, but the Fall Festival profits will allow us to cover all we want to do for the school and our children. I cannot THANK YOU enough for your support for our school!

Fall Festival

Speaking of the Fall Festival, it is less than two weeks away on Saturday Nov.3rd from 2-5.  Please join us for carnival games (the cake walk is my favorite, that’s where you’ll find me!), all kinds of yummy eats and treats (freshly popped popcorn anyone??), over 20 vendors selling their wares (I’ve been saving my pennies for this) and the AWE INSPIRING Silent Auction!  Parents- the Silent Auction Team has secured so many COOL items. You’ve gotta check it out and start your bidding early! The festival will go on rain or shine, so I’ll see you there!

Join PTA

If you have not signed up for PTA, please do so for $8.50.  You can visit joinpta.org or sign up at the festival. You’re not committing to life-long servitude to the PTA with a membership (unless you really want to!), you’re just saying I value my kids and their school experience and I back the future! Every membership counts.

Trunk or Treat

Don’t forget Trunk or Treat is Friday night. Dress up and be prepared to score big on the candy! Thank you to our families that are decorating their trunks this year!
Please feel free to reach out to me anytime.  I’m here to serve you and your children. 🙂
