February Parent Club Meeting Canceled

The February 2017 Battle Creek Parent Club meeting, originally scheduled for Wed 2/8, has been canceled.

We would like to thank everyone for their amazing support of last Friday’s Family Fun Night and the annual raffle fundraiser. We were able to raise over $4,000 at the event. The funds will be used to fund such things as field trips for our school’s students… class supplies… and more.

While the February meeting has been canceled, we hope that everyone will mark their calendars for March 8, 2017 and make plans to attend our next meeting. BCE teachers will be there to talk about topics such as the spring testing SBAC, and this is a great meeting for parents of students in grades 3, 4, and 5 to come learn more about what to expect for their children, and how to help them prepare.

How to Submit Photos for the 2016-17 Yearbook

The Battle Creek Elementary Yearbook Staff would like to invite students and parents to submit photos for the 2016-17 yearbook.

January Parent Club Meeting Rescheduled for Wed 1/18

The January 2017 Parent Club meeting — which was originally scheduled for 1/11 but was canceled due to inclement weather — has been rescheduled for this week and will be held on Wednesday 1/18. The meeting will take place between 6:30-7:30pm. As always, childcare will be provided.

One perk to attending this month’s meeting — you can purchase your raffle tickets for the upcoming Family Fun Night / Raffle Fundraiser ahead of time, in order to avoid waiting in line for a long time on the night of the event (many people were in line for 30-ish minutes at last year’s event)!

Time Change for January Parent Club Meeting on 1/11

The first Battle Creek Parent Club meeting of 2017 will be held a week from today, on Wednesday 1/11. In order to accommodate the make-up date for the 1st Grade Holiday Performance, however, our meeting time has changed to 6:00-6:45pm.

As always, the meeting will be held in the Library at Battle Creek Elementary School.

Childcare will be provided for those who attend. We hope to see you there!

Our 2nd Annual Gift Basket Raffle Fundraiser Will Be Held on February 3, 2017!

Our second annual Gift Basket Raffle Fundraiser will be held in conjunction with BCE’s next Family Fun Night on Friday, February 3, 2017. The event will take place at Battle Creek Elementary School from 6:30–8:30pm.

Get more information and details about the event here…

Back-to-School Night is Tonight

Back-to-School Night will be held tonight — Tuesday October 4, 2016 — from 5:45-6:45pm at Battle Creek Elementary School.

This year’s back-to-school night event will have a totally different format than what has been done in the past! The event isn’t just for parents anymore! Students are invited, as well, and there will be a bingo-type game for students to take parents on a “bear hunt” so they can show their parents around the classroom & school (introducing parents to their PE teacher, counselor, etc.).

Only two grade levels will actually have a class presentation from the teachers that night. Kindergarden will present from 6:00-6:15pm and 1st Grade from 6:20-6:40pm. All other grade levels will not have a teacher presentation this year.

Upcoming Events & Info at BCE in October

Here’s a look at the flyer that went home in your student’s Monday Folder today… filled with a bunch of info about upcoming events at Battle Creek Elementary in October 2016, as well as lots of info about easy things you can do to help us with our annual fundraising!
