Parents please remeber no drop-offs before 7:40 in the morning and try to limit early pick-ups in the afternoon. We try to keep instructional time sacred here at BES. When doing your "school shopping" please remember that our students are not allowed to have rolling backpacks nor shoes with wheels (Heelys.

|First Day Alphabet Soup
In the August 18, 2010 edition of the Mini Page, students were given some ideas to make the first day of school and the days to follow go more smoothly.
Your family may start getting ready for school days or weeks in advance. You might buy or gather school supplies and check to see which clothes you’ve outgrown.
The day or night before school starts Assemble your supplies. Organize your backpack and make sure it’s not too heavy to carry. (Remember, always carry it with both straps so you don’t hurt your back.)
Be on time. Set your alarm clock to wake you with plenty of time for breakfast and getting ready. Give yourself enough time to walk or ride to school.
Lay out your Clothes to put on in the morning. You might want to choose a favorite outfit or accessory for the first day.
Develop a schedule with your brothers and sisters for using the bathroom and having breakfast. If you work out a system in advance, there will be fewer fights about time spent getting ready. Your parents can help you make a plan.
Be Energetic about learning. When the teacher calls on you, ask questions and make helpful comments. Share an experience you’ve had that relates to the subject. For instance, if you’re studying your state’s history, tell about a tour you took of the state capital.
Have Fun! Even if you’re nervous about your first day, you’ll find it goes quickly. Chance are you won’t be able to wait for Day 2!
Give new classmates and teachers a chance. Sometimes it’s hard to get used to changes, but most of the time things turn out well. Make a new friend.
