Mrs. Hedrick's Weekly News for Parents

“Believing in the Power of YET!”


Field Day Week is here! Tuesday will be 3rd grade, Wednesday will be 4th grade, and Thursday will be our 5th grade. Please be sure to read over all information sent home by Coach Davis. These are very fun days for all of our BES family. Please be sure that your child wears sunscreen and brings some to reapply. The kids are also welcome to bring a towel to sit on in the bleacher. Please be reminded that bleachers are for the classes only. Families have designated areas to set up to watch and enjoy the events, but students will need to remain with their class.

The end of the year is coming fast. Please take care of any lunch balances, lost or damaged book fines or any other balance that you may have with the school.

As we begin to prepare for next year, we would like to get some feedback from you. Please click here to take a brief survey.

Mark your calendars for May 24. We will be having our Second Annual Summer Book Bash and Parent Workshop that day.

Awards Day will be held on May 31. The 3rd Grade Ceremony will begin at 8:15. The 4th grade will start at 10:00 and the 5th grade at 11:30. All ceremonies will be held in the gym. Please do not block our neighbors driveways when you park.

We are collecting Box Tops at BES. For each sheet that kids bring in filled with Box Tops, he/she earns 5 House points. Please clip and save your Box Tops to help your your student and your student’s house.

To assist in your weekly planning, I have included the lunch menu below. You can find it and other valuable information at our school web page at this link.
