Thank you to Brittany Purcell and Associates for providing treats for our teachers and care packages for students in need.
3rd grade students spent the week learning about the types of snow crystals and the unique nature of snowflakes. Then, they completed a STEM project by designing types of snowflakes and creating them using marshmallows and toothpicks. Great job 3rd grade!

BCES 4th graders kicked off their Ecosystems unit with a visit from Vanessa Terrell, a Research Coordinator for the Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources at UGA. She previewed key vocabulary and how humans impact ecosystems. Students learned about reptiles and amphibians native to Georgia and about their habitats/traits.
Our 4th grade students are currently learning to identify/classify angles by their size (right, obtuse, acute). They were tasked with the challenge to find 2 examples of each angle in our school building! They were so excited as they raced the clock to find angles in some very interesting places; they were even surprised that Geometry surrounds us from day to day. Here's a link to see their discoveries: Angles around our school
Mrs. Ryals and Mrs. Charles's class had a productive and relaxing day of book tasting at Starbooks Cafe. Students looked through several books about different animals they learned about in science earlier this year. At the end, they enjoyed refreshments while deciding on the animal they wanted to use for a research project, informational book, and presentation. Great job!
Kathy Church, with Smithgall Woods, visited with 4th Grade students today at BCES! Students learned about different ecosystems as a preview to the unit they will begin soon. This program was provided by the Banks County Public Library Outreach Program. Thank you, Stacy Krumnow, for supporting our students at BCES!
Family Connections will be at the old BOE building taking applications Wednesday, November 13th 9:30 till 12:00 and Friday, November 15th 9:00 till 4:00. Friday is the deadline for all applications! Please drop by and see Mrs. Carol Williams if you are going to need help for Christmas!
Today, our BCES family gathered together to remember, to honor, and to pay gratitude to those who have served our country. Our gathering was just one small token of appreciation for those brave enough to earn the title Veteran. It’s not a lot, but it’s one small way we can honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in freedom. Thank you to Miss Duncan and the 5th graders for your wonderful performance. Thank you to the JROTC for your help with our program, and thank you parents and Veterans for attending today.
