Candy Cane Shop 2018! The Candy Cane Shop is officially closed for 2018, but we hope the memories the children made during this fun week will last! Each of our students in Infants through 8th grade were able to spend time in the shop choosing gifts for their family! A very big THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who helped the children this week! We especially appreciate all of the years of leading the efforts of the shop by Kathleen Pacenti! She is passing along the torch to Elizabeth Medieros who will be taking over as coordinator in 2019! Thank you, ladies, for your leadership in keeping this long-standing event going for our students!

Today kicked off the first day of Christmas shopping in our annual Candy Cane Shop, hosted by our PTL! We appreciate the volunteers who came out to help the students shop and wrap gifts - - especially Mrs. Linda Schroeder, one of our retired BCA teachers who taught here for 45 years! Also, our 2nd graders made cookies for all of the teachers and staff, just to say thank you (a Random Act of Kindness that was inspired by their class elf, Snowflake!)

Snowflake is back!! Mrs. Webb's elf, Snowflake, arrived this week to visit with the kids now through Christmas! We always love it when Snowflake visits each December, spreading joy, but also being a bit mischievous when no one's in the room!! Also, he is teaching the students about taking time to do Random Acts of Kindness!!
