The Power to Inspire

In recognition of Say Something Week, BPS School Counselor Mrs. Biggiani invited students to reflect on the statement: When you say something, you have the power to inspire!

Congratulations to the four students who were honored for their submissions!

Summer Reading Lists and Resources

Reading for pleasure during July and August is a great way to reinforce skills, build stamina and enjoy some downtime. The district library media specialists have curated a reading list.

Celebrating the Earth

Students in Mrs. Sforza's AM and PM kindergarten classes recognized Earth Day by planting flowers outside their dismissal door bringing signs of spring right to their doorstep. They also engaged in learning centers designed to teach important concepts while honoring our special planet. Thank you to the BPS PTA for supporting the project and to the parent/guardian volunteers who helped make it a success.

Arbor Day Celebration

BPS students and staff recognized Arbor Day 2022 with a return to our traditional tree planting ceremony. The four Grade 1 classes began the event by singing "The Star Spangled Banner" followed by "It's Time Plant a Tree." The special inscription that accompanied the newly planted crepe myrtle was: "Through tough years, just like a tree with strong roots, we remain standing tall."
