That’s enough for next year…let’s finish out this year….

Thank you all so much for the support you’ve provided BCE during this past year.  With the generosity, support and dedication we’ve received from the BCE community it’s been an amazing year and I’m so proud of our students and our school.

There are so many people in the background who make our school run.  On behalf of the staff and district, I would like to thank all of you.  Our Learning Community thrives because of all of our work together.

Also, I would like to thank you for all that you have done this year to support the learning of our students.  Our end of the year assessments suggest a positive correlation between student reading at home and overall reading growth.  I would like to encourage you to support your child in their summer reading by helping them choose “just right” books and providing time in his/her day for reading.  Your child’s report card will indicate the end of the year reading level.  You can use www.scholastic.com/bookwizard to help choose books.

Finally, I would like recognize and thank three of our amazing staff members who will be departing BCE this year.  Lorraine Krilanovich will be retiring after 31 years of service, Judy Wels is retiring after 22 years of service and Laurie Conrad will be retiring after 19 years of service to SLVUD. These three women are dedicated, talented educators who have had a positive impact on the lives that they have touched and taught.  We will miss them and wish them good health and happiness.

Have a Wonderful Summer Break.  Enjoy the time with your children as they grow up so quickly.
