SUBJECT: BCE PTO February Newsletter

February 2021

The Spring semester is well under way! We hope all of our BCE families enjoyed a restful winter break and our unexpected snow day in January. Please take a moment to check out all the new updates in this month's newsletter. We have a lot of exciting events to look forward to! We'd also like to invite everyone to join us for our virtual PTO meeting on February 17th.  If you've been interested in getting involved with the PTO or curious about what we do, this is a great time to learn more!  

Spirit Night is Wednesday, Feb. 17th!

Join us for our February Spirit Night at Mandola's Italian Kitchen! From 4-9pm on Wednesday, Feb. 17th, Mandola's will donate a portion of the proceeds back to our school from dine in & pick up orders.  

*Be sure to mention 'BCE' when you order. If ordering online, please note 'BCE Spirit Night' in the special comments section*

The Show Must Go On!

Great news, Bobcats! The PTO is excited to announce that the Talent Show is NOT cancelled!  While the format will be a little different, our students will still have the opportunity to showcase their special and unique talents! 

Since we are unable to hold our live event at school as we have in years past, our 2021 talent show will be going virtual!  Each student who enters will record a video of their act and submit online.  We will then compile the acts into a virtual presentation that all of our students, teachers, and families will be able to watch and enjoy!  

Please let us know if you would like to sign up by filling out this quick Google form. Further details on submitting videos will be coming soon. Previous talent shows have featured everything from hula hooping, magic tricks, singing, dancing, and all kinds of musical instruments.  This is your opportunity to SHINE, Bobcats!

Important dates:

**Deadline to submit Entry Form is March 1st**

**Videos will be due the week of March 22nd (Date TBD)**

If you have any questions, please reach out to Sarah Savage at fundraising@bcepto.com.

We look forward to seeing you on the virtual 'Big Stage'!

BCE Teacher Appreciation

Thank you to these AMAZING Bobcat families who donated gift cards & snacks to our BCE staff in December & January.  Thank you, also, to the families who sent in anonymous donations. We appreciate your support!

The Fowler Family

The Gilbert Family

The Gorder Family  

A very special THANK YOU to Lindsay Taylor and team at Taylor Real Estate for sponsoring our BCE Staff lunch on January 19th! It was appreciated by everyone!

Thank you to all of the AMAZING parents of BCE for making our first Thanksgiving Pie Day such a success!  Because of your generosity, we were also able to send the staff off on winter break with a special cookie grab treat. Each staff member joined us outside to grab a "Merry and Bright" cookie bucket. It was filled with yummy light bulb cookies created especially for us by one of our talented BCE parents, Melinda Kollus.  Be sure to check out her creations @sugarcookiezen on Instagram.  

There were 10 buckets labeled with a special "Merry and Bright" sticker. The 10 lucky winners of the stickered cookie buckets each received a $50 gift card to Target.

Congratulations:

Huge 'shout out' to the Bee Cave HEB!! They provided us with these adorable snack bags for our entire staff filled with all sorts of goodies. We will hand them out at our upcoming Professional Development day.

BCE Staff Appreciation Wish List

If your family or business would like to sponsor a lunch or treat for a particular month please let us know. 

Below is a link to an Amazon Wish List we have created.  The items on the wish list will be used to stock the staff lounge with snacks throughout the year.  

The gift cards will be used to supplement our budget for providing lunch and other treats to the teachers and staff. We will update this list with additional needs throughout the year.

Please consider helping! Additionally, if your family or business would like to sponsor a lunch or treat for a particular month please let us know.
