Art Club

BPS Art Club is an amazing opportunity for students who have a special interest in Art to get extra time after school to work on projects.  Art Club is divided into three 4-week sessions.  Each section will have a separate topic.  Look for more information on the BPS Art website and classroom newsletters.

 

Century Club

At the beginning of each year, the students at BPS who are in grades Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd start working to join the CENTURY CLUB!!  This club is to promote reading and to motivate students to read, read, read.

We are hoping that every parent will encourage their child(ren) to read books and to become members of the CENTURY CLUB.   Reading is a key to education; stimulating thinking, learning and growing.  Reading daily will increase a person’s vocabulary and if asked questions about what he/she has read, it will increase comprehension as well.  To become good at any activity or sport, you have to practice and work to get better each day.  Well, the same is true of reading—to become a proficient and fluent reader takes practice and pushing for a higher level.

To achieve CENTURY CLUB does take work and dedication from both you and your child.  To become a member a student must read 100 books or 6,000 pages over the school year.

Any child who has achieved club membership status by April 2019 will be invited to attend the Century Club celebration at school with entertainment and refreshments.  The party will held during the school day in the afternoon. Last year, we all (kids and staff) had a SUPER TIME and we are eagerly looking forward to our May party!!
