Donuts with Dads has been rescheduled for March 13th, 2015. Please be on the look out for a letter home with your student.

This month our school will be embarking on our first all school book club called One Book, One School. Every child will receive a copy of the book – The Mysteries According to Humphrey by: Betty G. Birney. Students will read it at home and school over the month of March. We are personally asking you to make the time so your family can participate in this special activity.

In school, your child will be invited to answer daily trivia questions to encourage and reward attentive, aggressive listening. You will soon find that your child takes pride in knowing and anticipating the details of the story. In class, there may be various activities which discuss or explore the book. We encourage families to keep up so your child can be included. Throughout the month, everyone will be talking about THE MYSTERIES ACCORDING TO HUMPHREY.

Good luck! We hope to talk with both you and your student sometime this month about the Mysteries According to Humphrey – and the lessons he learns. “When a whole school reads a book, there’s a lot to talk about.” With your help, we can build a Community of Readers at BGE.

If you snap a digital photo of your family reading at home, send it to so we can put your photo on our main hallway!

March is Youth Art Month. Below are some of the fantastic art our students at BGE have been working on.
