We look forward to a great week of teaching and learning in Cougar Country!

Please read the information below as we prepare for upcoming events and focus on keeping our school community safe and healthy.

Calendar Reminder - As a reminder, Thursday, September 16 is a teacher workday; school will not be in session.

Curriculum Night - Tuesday, September 14 is our annual Curriculum Night. The event will be virtual starting at 5:00 for a ZOOM for New BCE Families. New parents, now is your time to ask our Leadership Team and PTA questions. 5:30-6:00 will be our General PTA Meeting and Leadership Team information session for our entire community. From 6:00-6:30 and 6:30-7:00, our classroom teachers will host two curriculum night sessions to share with families the curriculum we utilize daily for Literacy, Math and IB. Teachers will also discuss important tips on how to support your child to have a successful school year. The ZOOM links for these events will be coming soon! 

Face Coverings - As a reminder, for the safety of our school community, all individuals on campus are required to wear face coverings. It is essential that students follow this guidance and wear their masks properly so they can avoid being quarantined if there is a positive case of COVID.

COVID Symptoms - If your child or anyone in your home is displaying COVID symptoms or are waiting for COVID test results, please allow your child to stay at home.

Uniform Policy - The primary and intermediate campus will continue to be uniform schools. Students are allowed to wear navy, white, and Carolina blue tops. Students are allowed to wear navy and khaki bottoms. Students are allowed to wear BCE spirit shirts on Fridays with uniform bottoms. UNIFORMS
