Dear BPE Families,


The Madrigals from Westlake HS will be here to perform on Tuesday, December 18th from 7:40-8:05 am. There will be no morning assembly but students will go straight to the cafeteria when they arrive at school on Tuesday. Parents are invited to the the performance if they wish to attend.


Secondly, it has been our tradition the last couple of years for staff and students to dress up on the last 5 days of this semester. The list of dress-up days can be found below my message.

We are quickly approaching the last few days before the long awaited winter break. Please be aware of that students will be released from school on Friday, December 21 at 11:50 am and lunch will not be served. If you have specific questions concerning your child's class party please reach out to his or her teacher.


Have a good rest of the week,

Heather Meek




Counselors' Corner

Please remind your children to visit the lost & found!  In an effort to keep our lost and found efficient, any unclaimed items remaining when we leave for winter break will be donated to charity.  The best way to make sure your child's lost items are returned is to clearly label them with first and last names.


This month we are focusing on mindfulness as our life skill. At this time of year in particular, we find ourselves strapped for time and energy and trying to be in multiple places at once. It's so very important for students, teachers and parents alike to take time to slow down and practice mindfulness. Deep breathing is one of our favorite strategies! Students in third through fifth grade learned about square breathing and even made their own tool to practice. Not sure what square breathing is? Ask your child to teach you!
