  • August 25 Assessment Day

    On Friday, August 25, we will be using our Teacher PLC day as an Elementary Assessment Day.  We will be assessing as many students in grades first through sixth (kindergarteners will NOT attend) as possible on this day.  This will allow us to cut down on the instructional impact of beginning of the year assessing.  The results of these assessments will help us to determine your child’s academic levels for the beginning of the year.  We will also determine further reading needs for your child and plan literacy instruction and interventions accordingly.

    Please note:

    There will not be regular school on this day.  Students will report to school at assigned times only.

    IF your child cannot attend at their scheduled time, but can attend one of the other offerings, please send them at the time convenient for your family.


    There will be no bus transportation and breakfast/lunch will not be provided.


    We will be dividing the entire student body into three sections:

    Last names between A-G come from 8:00 am - 10:00 am

    Last names between H-O come from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

    Last names between P-Z come from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


    YMCA will be running their program on August 25 if you need daycare.  Please consult their information on the district website.


    Students will enter through the front doors with their parents to check-in at their appropriate time.

    All students will be picked up on the west side like we do for normal dismissal.


    Please make sure to mark your child’s assessing time on the calendar and be sure your student is here on time as well as picked up on time.  Although attendance is not mandatory, we strongly encourage your students’ participation.  If your child cannot attend during their scheduled time, they may come at any of the other times.

  • BCES YMCA Child Care Information

    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.
