Happy Sunday, Trailblazers! We hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend after a great first week back at school!
PTA spring fling
Mark your calendars for the PTA Spring Fling that will take place on the field on Friday, May 12th from 5:30-8:00. CLICK HERE to buy your wristbands for only $8.00 (price will be $10.00 at the door.) We will have food trucks (bring a blanket to picnic on), raffle baskets, games, face painting, a foam pit, and an opportunity to dunk some BRES staffers inside of a dunk tank!
3rd quarter report cards
Third quarter report cards will be sent home on Monday, May 1st with all students. We hope you and your child enjoy celebrating all of their hard work and success!
WCPSS parent survey
We would love your feedback to help us grow so please take this survey. The survey will be open until May 12th.
EOG proctors needed
EOG testing will be here before we know it (June 20, 21, 22) and we will need volunteers to assist with proctoring. Please review the available time slots and click on the box(es) to sign up. You may choose as many as you wish. Remember you MUST complete the required volunteer registration & background check in the office (and be approved) prior to testing. Email Mrs. Dana at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions concerning how to register for volunteering or to check your status.
If you have specific questions about the testing process or proctoring, please reach out to the Testing Coordinator, Mrs. Alford, at email@example.com.
Intent to return
As we work towards hiring new staff for the 23-24 school year, we need to ensure that we have an accurate prediction of student enrollment numbers. If your child WILL NOT be returning to Banks Road next year, please let your teacher or our data manager Lora Blankenship (firstname.lastname@example.org) know ASAP. Thanks!
Additionally, if you will have a child turning 5 years old on or before August 31st, please go to https://www.wcpss.net/Domain/56 or contact data manager Lora Blankenship (email@example.com) for enrollment information.
Teacher appreciation week is May 1-5
Please note that teacher appreciation was originally set for May 1st-5th but WCPSS changed it May 8th-12th to align with the National teacher appreciation week. Our PTA already had things planned for May 1st-5th so we are sticking with that week. Please click HERE for a list of the staff favorites!
