Awards Banquet - The Awards Banquet will be on TBA, if possible. Be on the lookout for more information and volunteer opportunities. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact the 5th Grade Awards Banquet Chair at Awards@bbepta.com.
BizTown - On TBA 2020, JA BizTown will engage 5th grade students in the role of workers and consumers in a series of classroom lessons that culminates in a day-long visit to JA BizTown, a fully-interactive simulated town. Through daily lessons, hands-on activities, and active participation in the simulated community, students develop a strong understanding of the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in a worldwide economy.
The Nutcracker - Unfortunately due to Covid, is unavailable this year. Every year, right before Winter Break, the 5th graders put on a performance of The Nutcracker. It is an amazing sight to see 110 students dressed as Toy Soldiers, Sugar Plum Fairies, and Bakers dancing and singing together. Mark your calendar for Monday, 09 December to see this annual performance. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact the 5th Grade Nutcracker Chair at Nutcracker@bbepta.com.
Patriots Day - Unfortunately is unavailable this year. 5th grade students celebrate a wonderful learning opportunity called Patriots Day. The students will learn what life was like in the colonies for those who founded this great nation of ours. Their day will be filled with music, crafts, games, education, and songs that our forefathers experienced. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact the 5th Grade Patriots Day Chair at Patriots@bbepta.com.
T-Shirt Contest - Each year, the 5th grade students vote on a design by one of their peers to be used on a special t-shirt that can be worn throughout their final year at BBE. The design is placed on the front of a white t-shirt and Class of 2028 and all of the students’ names are printed on the back.
Veterans Day Program - Unfortunately is unavailable this year. BBE is having a special celebration honoring our veterans. We begin the day with an assembly at 8:30 a.m. that recognizes these heroes and their families, followed by a reception for our guests. All veterans and their families are welcome to attend. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Veterans Day Chair at Veterans@bbepta.com.
