Oct. 1 - Staff Appreciation Lunch Hosted by 5th Grade Classes

Let’s show our appreciation for BRES Staff!

 We need your help to make this a success! Oct 1st is the first of several class-hosted lunches for our BRES staff. Fifth grade classes will host this one (although you’re welcome to contribute even if you don’t have a 5th grader) and we need more dishes! Sign up to bring a dish for the BRES staff lunch.

Please sign up here!

Oct. 1: PTA Meeting, 6:30-8:00PM
Please join us for the BRES PTA meeting on Tuesday, Oct 1, from 6:30-8:00pm. 

  • Welcome to all. PTA membership not required.

  • Bring your child(ren) and a love of pizza! Pizza for attendees (first come first serve) & child care by KAH are provided free.

  • If you weren’t able to attend the Back To School Night or want to know what the other grades are learning come for the Curriculum Review. Parents are encouraged to come learn more from BRES staff and the new curriculum for both reading/ language arts and math. There will be a presentation on Benchmark Advance Reading and Eureka Math Curriculum and parents will have an opportunity to ask questions.

Walk to School Day - Wed Oct 2

Let’s all walk to school together on Wed, Oct 2, 8:45-9:15am. It’s healthy, gets kids to know safe routes to school, and helps reduce carbon emissions. Car-riders are encouraged to drive to one of the parks where walkers are gathering, and walk to school together. Bring a poster and cheer everyone!

Sign up here to volunteer to lead a walking group or greet students at school and hand out giveaways.

After School Activities - starting this week

Registration is now open for fall after school activities - all activity flyers are on the PTA website organized by day of week, so you can easily see what works for you. 

Some vendors have delayed their start dates due to low enrollment so far:

  • Panda Programmer coding classes delayed start to Wed Oct 2.

  • Young Rembrandts art classes delayed start to Fri, Oct 4. 

Note: Vendors may cancel classes if there are not enough students registered. The school and PTA do not vet, sponsor or run these after school activities. Rooms are made available at schools for anyone who wishes to offer after school activities and other community activities.
