Hello Bobcat Families,
    It has been a wonderful first month of school at BCE. We have transitioned very nicely into this school year. All of our Bobcats from Pre-K to 5th graders are working hard each day! School safety processes have been a big focus of our beginning and we appreciate your patience and support as we all adjust to our new way of work. Thank you for all of your support as we have kicked off this fabulous new year.
    We are excited to announce a first ever, BCE Parent University that we will be hosting on Saturday, September 15th from 9:30-12:00. Parents, we hope you will consider joining us for some information that will help you this school year. We know that many of you wish to become Level II screened for volunteering. We will have this happening at school during Parent University. A sign-up link will be available. Please contact Jennifer Jajuga if you are interested.
    Our PTA is hard at work to plan some great family events for this year. Some BCE favorites like Fall Fest (which will be a carnival this year), Giving Tree, and Candy Cane Lane (with a math twist) are going to be here before we know it. This year, PTA is also scheduling Give Back Nights with various restaurants in our area. Be on the lookout for these businesses that are choosing to partner with our school through the year.
    I will be kicking off this year’s parent book club with Jessica Lahey’s, The Gift of Failure. More information is in the newsletter about this opportunity. Please know that my door is always open if you have a question, concern or if you just want to say hello!
    Jenn Mekler, Principal
