Principal Message 7.21.17

July 21, 2017

Good Morning, this is Jessica Burroughs the Principal of Banks Road with the announcements for the coming week.   

Week Events:

For the week of July 24th:
  • For Tracks 1, 2, and 3, Monday the 24th will be the Beginning of the Year EOG test for Reading only.  This helps us get testing ability information on all third graders so we can best prepare them for their first EOG at the end of the year.
  • For Tracks 1, 2, and 3, Wednesday the 26th are optional Ident-a-kid pictures.
  • For Track 3 Friday the 28th is the last day before Track Out on Monday

For the week of July 31st:

  • For Track 3 and Track 4, Monday the 31st Track 3 is tracked out and Track 4 tracks in for the first day of school (This is the first day for 1st – 5th grade – all kindergarten students on Track 4 have been assigned a staggered entry day.  Call the Main Office for your date if you cannot remember it).
  • For All Tracks, Friday the 4th from 5:30 – 7:00 is the Back to School Blast.  This fun evening for families is sponsored by the PTA.  Come and make new friends, play games, participate in a water slide, and eat some yummy food.  Check the flier in your child’s Friday folder for more information.  We hope to see you there!

Parents, please remember that celebrations for birthdays must be approved by the classroom teacher at least a day in advance.  Outside treats cannot be shared with a class in the cafeteria and the classroom teacher must make arrangements.


Please note we have adjusted morning arrival procedures for 2017 – 2018 and are enforcing the district dress code.  Both of these items were addressed in the Opening Letter to parents.  The letter has been posted on the school website, the PTA FB site, and can be found at the link below. 


Opening Letter:


The new BRES Parent/Student Handbook:


If you have signed in medication to the main office for your student for the 2016-2017 school year, you are required to come to the main office and sign out all medication or bring in a new 1702 form that has been filled out and signed by your child’s doctor.  All medication will be disposed of ten days after the close of the school year.


If you have any questions please call the Front Desk at 919-890-7333. 


We have had a wonderful kick-off for the 2017 – 2018 school year.  Join us as we Blaze Our Trails to Success!
