Last week we recognized our first group of fifth grade leadership students. These students completed three or more leadership jobs this year and earned a leadership pin in assembly to commemorate the work they have done. We are so proud of their leadership and their willingness to give up recess time to help support students and faculty around BPE. Today we celebrated three more student leaders and we look forward to recognizing many more students each week until the end of the year!
Lost and found will be cleared out over spring break! After the very chilly start to our week our lost and found collection is overflowing! Please remind your children to visit the lost and found to claim their items before spring break.
This week we wrapped up our classroom lessons about kindness. In kindergarten through second grade classes, we read a book about kindness and then each student had the opportunity to drop a rock into water as they shared an act of kindness they had done. We discussed how the ripples in the water represent that ripple effect of each of our acts of kindness. In third through fifth grade classrooms, we shared a similar discussions and watched this beautiful Thai commercial that shows the large impact small acts of kindness can have. We are excited to introduce our new life skill, problem solving, on Monday!
As a reminder, spring break is only two weeks away! At spring break we will clear out the lost and found once again. Please encourage your children to visit the lost and found in the next two weeks to claim their items.
