March Madness Reading Challenge


I am so excited to see how much our Bulldogs have read this month! Please fill out this form so we can send out our Virtual Basketball game!!!


Blossoming Bulldogs SPRING into READING!!!

Our reading challenge for April is to read 15-20 minutes EVERYDAY. If we hit 100,000 minutes we will have a Virtual Dance Party with all of the teachers. Please feel free to print this form to keep track. At the end of the month we will have you fill out the same form you did above for March. When your kids are reading please post pictures on twitter @BriarcliffES @MrsLoriNelson #BulldogsRead



Virtual Spirit Weeks


We will have a new SPIRIT IDEA for each day of the school week for the entire month. Here is the link. You can print it out and hang as a reminder or visit our website to see it.



Physical Activity


Below the link consists of 2 pages - the first page is geared toward K-2 students, the second page toward 3-5.  At the bottom of each page, there is a link to a survey that students may fill out to indicate how many activities they completed during the week.  They may begin again during the following weeks and repeat some of the videos they participated in during prior weeks if they wish.
