What’s going on at BRES?
Trailblazers, we are magnifying the possibilities in classrooms and throughout our school community. Check out our new addition of willow trees and crepe myrtles on the 3-5 play-ground. We are eagerly awaiting the installation of our art sculptures in the Café. I will be sure to tweet out pictures of both new enhancements to our building and grounds. Also, please be on the lookout for new technology in our Media Center and BIG enhancements to our computer lab. Our PTA and our Kraft YMCA partnerships are supporting us in strengthening our student and staff access to technology, beautifying our campus and grounds and putting relevant and meaningful curriculum materials into classrooms.
Speaking of the good work of our PTA, our PTA Coin Drive begins on September 2nd. You can send in coins any day between the 2nd and the 10th. The class that raises the most money per track will receive a party of their choice: popcorn, popsicles, pizza or icecream. All coins brought in are put towards the grade level fund and helps pay for field trips, grade level orders. The PTA is looking for volunteers to help out with the coin drive to count change for each morning at 10:30 a.m. If you can help come on out. Please visit the PTA website for more information.
Lastly, the Fall Festival is just a few weeks away. Mark your calendars for September 26th. There will once again be fun activities for the young and the young at heart. Classes are already accepting donations for their class baskets for the raffle. Class baskets are raffled off at the festival and all proceeds will go towards the grade level field trip fund. Ask your teacher about the theme of their grade level basket and how you can contribute. All basket items are due by 9/19. The BIG question is will there be a DUNK tank again? Come on out and see at our annual Fall Festival!
That’s it Trailblazers! All of this information will be posted on the school website and will go out on the Principal’s Desk Blog. Please call the school with any questions.
Always Trailblazer Proud, Mrs. Graf
