MRS. MEEK'S WEEKLY MESSAGE

Dear BPE Families,

 

This has been a big week! I would like to start by thanking the Booster Club and parents for organizing our highly anticipated annual Bobcat Fest! James Anderson, Genevieve Glasgow, and their team have been working hard for weeks to get ready for this amazing event.  I can't wait to see everyone out at the carnival tonight from 5-8. The weather will be glorious.

 

Next week our 4th and 5th grade students will be taking a portion of their STAAR tests for the 2018-2019 school year. 

  •  4th grade will take writing on Tuesday
  • 5th grade will take math on Tuesday and reading on Wednesday 

 

The campus will be open to parents for lunch. Here are a few of reminders and tips to ensure students are prepared for testing:

  • Avoid scheduling medical appointments on STAAR testing dates
  • 4th and 5th grade parents are not allowed to visit campus during testing hours (7:40 am-12:30 pm).
  • Make sure your child is on time to school. Testing begins right away to ensure students can eat lunch at their regularly scheduled times.
  • Ensure students get a good night's rest (8-12 hours).
  • Students should eat a good breakfast (best if it includes protein so they stay fueled).
  • Send water and a few healthy snacks (nothing messy like Cheetos or oranges please).
  • Make sure your child has a book to read after they have completed their test.
  • Dressing in layers is encouraged so students can adjust to temperature changes in the room.
  • The STAAR test is four-hours long.
  • 4th and 5th grade students will have lunch, recess, and specials after the four-hour time limit is complete. 
  • Encourage your child to do their best, relax, and take mental breaks as needed during the testing.

 

All My Best,

Heather Meek

BPE NEWS

As you may have seen on the news, the flu season is in full swing. Please take the time to read the following to ensure our students are healthy and our school environment is safe.

As a precaution, and as is custom this time of year, our custodians are working hard to disinfect common surface areas such as water fountains, rails, restroom surfaces, doorknobs, etc. and keeping restroom areas stocked with soap and paper towels.

If your child has a fever (100 degrees or higher) or is vomiting in the evening or morning before school, he/she should NOT come to school that day. Students with a fever should remain home fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Please report communicable diseases such as strep and flu to the nurse as we would like to continue to track our illnesses/absences.

Please see the following information on the flu with helpful reminders to share with your student(s): goo.gl/uMKU8u.


Thanks for all you do at home to keep our students as healthy as possible and in school!
