On November 1st, we held our Bomber PRIDE assembly. Every student at the assembly was wearing their gold Bomber PRIDE shirt. These shirts were provided free from a generous donation within the community. At the assembly, students watched a video explaining the 5 core areas of Bomber PRIDE.
Positive Attitude, Respect, Integrity, Discipline, and Excellence. These are things that we expect from our students, staff, and principal everyday at BAES.
Teachers will focus on one of these areas monthly and discuss in their classrooms what that area looks like throughout our school. Students that show “Bomber PRIDE” in that area will get a ticket. That ticket will go into a grade level drawing for the week, and ultimately a schoolwide drawing at the end of the month f a prize.
At the end of the year, students that have shown Bomber PRIDE throughout the year will have the opportunity to put their handprint on the wall at their school.
This year was the 3rd year that the Braham Elementary Parent Organization has sponsored the 2nd & 3rd grade physical education roller skating unit. The roller skates are rented from SkateTime and the students are able to skate for 10 days. This is one of the students new favorite things and they look forward to participating in it. Thank you so much to the BEPO group for their continued support, it is greatly appreciated.
