Today, the 3rd Grade Montessori students, led by Mrs. Soper, joined Mr. Tate’s 7th grade science students to dissect cow eyeballs. Working together in synergy, the students identified the cornea, the lens, the vitreous humor, the retina, and the optic nerve. What a great conclusion this activity was to this quarter’s 7th grade science unit on body systems!

The end of the year is already here, and to celebrate what a fantastic year it has been the PTA is
hosting a potluck on Saturday, June 8th at 12:00. There will be a couple of funding requests, but it is mostly a social gathering. The PTA will be providing sandwiches, beverages, and paper products. If you could fill in the sides and desserts that would be fantastic. Because we want to make sure we have enough food, please be sure to sign up for your dish and rsvp for the
number of people in your party, by June 1.
Thanks to the PTA for the delicious cakes!
Where has the year gone? It is time for our favorite week, Teacher Appreciation Week, and we need your help.

Please bring any item you sign-up for to the upstairs teachers lounge by 8:00 am, so the teachers will have time to eat before “meet and greet.”

Bromley East Charter School had their first ever student-led Leader In Me parent night. Students presented the 7 habits to parents with poems, skits, and posters. Students from all grade levels were involved in the presentation. Throughout our building each classroom had developed bulletin boards depicting a habit.
Seventh Grade Honors made great use of the new Google Chromebooks purchased by the PTA. The students loved learning on their own devices and look forward to using them for their Holocaust projects.
The playground build is quickly approaching and in addition to volunteers to put together the playground, we also need donations for lunch and snacks to feed all of our helpers. Please click here to sign up!

Agenda for Board of Directors Study Session March 21, 2013 – Study Session Begins at 6:30 p.m.
Dear Ms. Sheldon,
After watching the recent 9News report regarding police officers being called to area schools to deal with allegedly minor behavioral infractions, the board felt compelled to write a note of commendation to you, and your assistant administrators, for your positive and proactive approach to school discipline.
Your actions are completely consistent with the Bromley East Charter School Mission Statement commission to provide our services to children in a safe environment.
Habitually disruptive or disrespectful students not only distract from the educational experience of other students, they tie up valuable administrative resources, and perhaps significantly endanger their own future academic and lifetime achievement potential. A worst-case extrapolation of such adverse behavior could be construed as compromising the safety of the school environment for other students and faculty. Positively reinforcing respectful and cooperative behavior is consistent with the BECS WAY. However, when a student exhibits a pattern of disrespectful behavior, both parents and administration are faced with the unpleasant but necessary task of sending a strong message that bad behavior will produce unpleasant consequences.
In the 9NEWS segment, the child’s mother asserted that you were cavalierly (and unnecessarily) interfering with her child’s future education and lifetime prospects. This act demonstrates unequivocally that she is not aware of how a more serious offense by her child (which could reasonably be expected to follow if less serious offenses are not corrected in a timely and effective manner) could impact her child’s life far more negatively for a much longer time. This mother’s attitude also ignores the facts that the school did not file a formal complaint, and the responding officers believed the child’s misbehavior rose to a level that demanded an official censure.
The 9NEWS reporter acknowledged that our school calls for police intervention less frequently (nearly half as often) than our district counterparts. That suggests that we are experiencing fewer serious disciplinary problems and/or we are handling them in-house more often. Either way, we are providing our students with a more positive school experience.
Lastly, please know that the Bromley East Charter School Board of Directors fully supports your efforts to appropriately discipline unruly students with compassion when possible, and very directly when necessary.
Charles R. Elliston
President, Bromley East Charter School Board of Directors
It is getting close to the build date for our playground project. The Community Build date is set for April 20, weather permitting. If you are not familiar with this project, the school has raised an outstanding $30,000 to improve the 1st and 2nd grade playground.
This project cannot be completed without your help. We are looking for volunteers to participate that day. We need help with assembling, building, keeping kids busy, as well as keeping our volunteers fed and hydrated.
Please return this form back to your teacher or you can call or email me directly with this information. Thank you!
