Market Day is an awesome learning experience for our 3rd graders. In social studies, they have been studying Producers and Consumers, and Saving and Spending. Students have created their own businesses with a handmade product. They have worked on supply costs, marketing and production. On Market Day, students set up their stands and sell their products. Every student and teacher receives 10 Apple Bucks on their way in and they can purchase whatever products they want. Yes, this is real life products, but not real money. Students have art work, crafts, slime, etc. It's like a farmers market set up and students are allowed to walk through and check out all the products. Attached is the YouTube video of last year's Market Day, if you want to get a better idea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGvruYxdGgA&feature=youtu.be

Way to make us #MustangProud, Lucas!! Lucas is the first student at BES to reach 200 reading steps with our monthly reading logs through our reading curriculum.

The second graders at BES will be traveling to the Lake Geneva YMCA for five Monday afternoons starting April 22 (ending May 20th). They will be in the water learning valuable swimming skills like Swim, Float, Swim; Jump, Push, Turn, Grab; and Moving Bobs to Safety. We will also learn water safety skills both in and out of the pool. Everyone is able to do this free of charge thanks to the YMCA. The Geneva Lakes YMCA Aquatics Dept., is ALWAYS thinking about water safety because they are very passionate about teaching kids to swim and be safe around water to help prevent drowning. In our communities, there are so many lakes & pools that this is a necessary skill for our kids to be learning. We are joining over 1500 kids and 13 schools in Walworth County and beyond that have already come to the YMCA to learn these much-needed life skills. *Families can check with their child's homeroom teacher for more information and details on these events*

Third grade students took their geometry to the streets! They took all the information they have learned about polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals to create incredible mosaic chalk art. This was an enjoyable and academic break from their Forward state testing.
