BCES Announcements

  • 2016-17 BCES Open House Information

    Returning parents and students,

    Please join us on Tuesday, August 16, from 2:00-3:30pm, for our annual Open House!  Students bring their supplies, or pick up school supply kits; find their teacher assignment and locate classrooms; pay for lunches; sign up for bus service, if needed; meet the principal; and visit the various tables set up in the commons.  After 2:15pm, enjoy a treat served outdoors, (weather permitting), compliments of your BCES PTO.

    New parents and students,

    Since first time experiences at a new school can be overwhelming, I would like to extend an invitation to your family to join us early on Tuesday, August 16.   We would like you to join us at 1:00pm at the west side entrance (you may park along the curbing on either side of the driveway that parallels our playground.)   This extra time will give me a chance to meet you, explain our pick up/drop off procedures, accessing the building during the day, pod locations, our Open House process, and hopefully answer any burning questions for you before sending you on a tour of the building.

    Due to our limited time, the gathering will start promptly at 1:05pm in the gym.  

    See you there!!

     Class assignments will be available on myCampus on Tuesday, August 16 after 1:00pm.

     All fees may be paid through myCampus after August 10 and all families are encouraged to take advantage of this process.​

  • BCES YMCA Child Care Information

    Traditional Day Camp
    Traditional Day Camps offer enriching activities where friends are made through group games, sports & fitness, hands-on science, arts & crafts, music, and swimming. All activities are based on the weekly camp theme.

    Before & After School Care
    Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe time well spent in a fun, safe and supportive environment before and after school is a primary building block for quality of life and future success of children. Children feel connected at the Y where they can make friends and learn how to be their best with the Y’s values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We promote positive self-esteem, life skills, teamwork, leadership, creativity, and educational support.
