We are reading a cute novel for the next week or so, called The Candy Corn Contest. We do not have enough books to send one home with each student, so we are putting chapter summaries and other information on our blog. Check out each night for updates!

Book Character Dress Up Day!

Book Character Dress Up Day Is Coming Soon!

Friday, October 31, 2014, students are invited to dress up as a book character here at BCES. We ask that students bring a copy (or picture) of their book to carry along with them all day so other students can identify the character and so your child can share their character’s story!

We will have a costume parade and students will hear a story in the gym read by special guest Dumbledore (whose muggle name is Mr. Bryant)!

Please, no masks or heavy makeup. Though we want our students to have fun, this is still a learning environment and we need to be respectful.
