BP Students Help Give to Others this Thanksgiving!!
The students in Mrs. Skinrood’s class donated supplies and assembled snack bags to give to those in need at Synergy Services. They were able to make 42 treat bags! It is exciting to see our Mustangs give back to the community in this challenging time!
December Spirit Wear Fun!!!
School Item Drop off Details
We are trying to limit the amount of visitors up to the building, and students in the office as much as possible. Because of this, please refer back to our previous communication in regards to items forgotten at home (and the additional notes):
Please make every effort to send your child with everything they need each day. If something is forgotten at home, please email your child’s teacher first to let them know what was left at home.
*We have extra bottled water for students who have left their water bottles at home. *ADDITIONAL NOTEWe have had several students, on a regular basis, who forget their water bottles at home. We have a limited supply of bottled water, so please make sure to continue to send your child with a refillable water bottle from home each day.
*If your child forgot their lunch, he/she will be offered a hot lunch from the cafeteria. If your child cannot eat school lunch for allergy related reasons, we will have a drop off table in the atrium. Please still email your teacher, and alert the office of the item you are dropping off by ringing the doorbell.

* ADDITIONAL NOTEPlease refrain from bringing your child outside food (McDonald’s, Jimmy John’s, etc). This not only increases the amount of people into the building, but also becomes an issue if staff is not available to deliver the lunch to your student prior to their scheduled lunch time.
*For iPads left at home, please determine with your child’s teacher if they will need their iPad for the day. If you and your child’s teacher decide it is best for your child to have it at school, you can leave it on the drop off table.
  • Water Bottles
The school could use some additional supplies. If you are able to donate any of the above, please drop them off at the front office, or send them in with your student. Thanks!!
