Good Evening Trailblazers,                                                                      

This is Mrs. Graf with several announcements: 

First things first, our second grade bus coming from the zoo is running behind and is scheduled to be on campus at 5:30 p.m. 

Tomorrow is Super Saturday and we are scheduled to have school for the Tracks 2 & 4.   School begins at normal schedule time 9:15 but ends at 12:45 p.m.  There is no breakfast or lunch served, so please pack a snack for your child. Tomorrow is also School Spirit Day March Madness so if you are going to participate please make sure that you have school favorite college wear on!

Here is an update on the Fun Run. We have already raised over $1,000.  The leading class is Ms. Bethel’s! Remember that this is the major fundraiser of the year. The Banks Road Elementary School PTA is responsible for organizing 100% of the Fun Run this year. That means that 100% of the funds raised will stay with the PTA. The Fun Run for Track 4 will be March 27. The event will be held for tracks 1, 2 and 3 on April 2. If you would like to volunteer please contact the PTA at  All of the funds raised will directly towards getting additional technology such as iPads, Smart Boards and laptops for student use during instruction and learning activities. 

Interskate Night is rescheduled for THIS Sunday evening from 6-8 p.m.  $3 gets you a drink, pizza and skates.  This is a special night for BRES families and friends.  I’ll be there with my skates on and I hope to see you there!

Picture Day has been rescheduled for the following tracks: Track 3 is April 8th and Track 4 is next Friday, March 28th.

Case Benchmark assessments are scheduled for next week.

Friday, March 28th is an Early Release Day.  We will dismiss at 1:15 p.m.

Saturday, March 29th is Super Saturday school for Tracks 1 & 4 only.  8:45-12:45 p .m.

That’s it Trailblazers! This information will be posted to the BRES website and will go out on the Principal’s Desk Blog. Please call the school if you have any questions. J

Always Trailblazer Proud, Mrs. Graf
