Open House

We invite you to attend a virtual Open House and learn more about BCE.  You will hear from our principal, teachers, students, and parent representatives.  RSVP for Open House here.

·         Thursday, January 14 at 5:30pm

·         Tuesday, January 26 at 10:30am

If you were unable to attend one of our virtual Open House events and would like information before the

first lottery deadline,  please email president@cougarpta.com, and we will be happy to share the event 

recording with you.


Historically our in-person Open House events are followed by a tour of the BCE campuses, including the

Billingsville Campus for K-2 students, and the Cotswold campus for 3-5 students.  While COVID-19 

prevents us from having visitors at school, our PTA has prepared a Virtual Tour to showcase our 

facilities including large classrooms, outdoor learning options, and state of the art STEAM Lab.  

Both of our campuses feature dedicated spaces for Media, Spanish, Art, Music and Physical Education.
