You received brief information regarding the middle school registration process in Tuesday folders this week. I have compiled a one-pager of FAQs and important links that are attached. If you have additional questions, we will host a Coffee with the Counselor/Principal on 3/27 at 8:15 am. Additionally, please attend open houses for your upcoming middle school. This is where you will find specific information about classes, schedules, and other opportunities.

BES MARCH READING MADNESS
During the month of March, we are going to be celebrating our love of basketball and books through a March Madness challenge. We encourage all students to participate in this friendly challenge throughout the month. This is a great nightly activity for all ages.
Each night, Monday-Friday, we are asking students to read for 20-30 minutes with an adult, sibling, or friend. Once a student reads, they need to put the number of minutes on the calendar provided and get an adult signature. Students will be working to earn prizes for themselves and their class. Recording minutes read on the weekend is also an option! Students are responsible for keeping up with their own reading log. They must have it signed to earn the prizes.
At school, we will complete a bracket book challenge to find out what our favorite books are at Briarcliff! We have also included a list of questions to help you talk with your student about the book/s they are reading at night.
