School is old and dated and it shows in the buildings and campus. Clearly the groundskeeper either doesn't care or they don't have one because the grass, weeds and flower beds look terrible. Plus, the school website is out of date and the monthly calendar does not reflect any of the important or upcoming dates such as Fall pictures, or anything else going on. Many of the elementary schools have Fall Festivals and obviously BS does not. If they need help with keeping their school calendar and site updated, they should ask the parents because I'm sure there are people who are capable and would be happy to help out.
I have two children currently attending BSES. They are challenged on a daily basis which is preparing them for middle and high school and most of the time, they have fun doing it. The teachers have dealt with my children lovingly and fairly. I have seen great gains this year in my children's test scores and look forward to one more year at this wonderful school. People need to understand that teachers are human, too. Yes, there may be times when I disagree with how a certain situation was handled concerning my child, but I still stand behind the teacher and will join forces as long as it is for the betterment of my child. We all make mistakes and have bad days. It seems that parents seem to overlook the fact the teachers are not perfect. We, as parents, have to have a little patience and understanding as well.
