Students who sold 10 or more boxes during the World's Finest Chocolate Fundraiser got a special treat! A limo arrived at school and whisked the kiddos to Curbside where they enjoyed burgers and ice cream. They all had a blast!

Students in Ms. Curtis' class took some time to see, think, and wonder about different types of habitats and came up with some great questions.
We don't always have the answer, but it's important that we teach students to "see, think, and wonder." This is a great strategy for you to use at home with your child. Building curiosity and the ability to wonder will lead to effective questioning and interest in the world around them. Give it a try the next time something catches their attention. Ask your child, "What do you see?" "What does this make you think about?" "What do you wonder or want to know more about?" Sometimes we can just Google the answer, but give them a chance to sit and ponder for a moment, you'll be amazed at the questions they come up with! This strategy works great when reading a story, too!
Our first grade students are learning to read with the help of their 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade reading friends. Students who joined the Big Buddy club go to the classrooms Monday-Thursday to read with kindergarten and first grade students. These are Ms. LeCompte's friends enjoying reading groups, listening to themselves read fluently, enjoying stories online, and even building their reading skills with Lexia.
On Friday, Southeast Middle School visited our fifth graders to tell them all about SMS's Magnet program in the Digital Arts. Students watched a video and talked about the various programs Southeast offers such as audio engineering, video production, coding and robotics, and print media.
You can learn more about the opportunities at Southeast by visiting their website at https://www.smsdataschool.com/ and clicking on 5th GRADE!
Happy Moon Festival, BRCVPA! Today is Friday the 13th, but it also marks a very old and important traditional festival known as the Mid-Autumn Festival. It is a harvest festival, celebrated by people in China, Taiwan, and Vietnam. The Mid-Autumn Festival is also known as the Moon Festival”because it is celebrated during a full moon.
First Grader Christian's family donated some mooncakes to our faculty and staff to help us celebrate! These delicious cakes are similar to pastries and have various sweet fillings such as red bean paste and Chinese date paste. Thank you so much, Nguyen Family!
You can read more about this very important festival, as well as see a video on how mooncakes are made, at this link: https://kidworldcitizen.org/the-mid-autumn-festival-the-moon-fairy-and-mooncakes/
It's time to smile, because tomorrow is picture day at BRCVPA! All students have free dress for picture day. If you are purchasing pictures, please send the envelope back to school with your child. Money will not be accepted after picture day. If the envelope did not make it home, no worries! Just write the information on the outside of a plain white envelope and return it to school with your child.
NOTE: Credit card payments can be made by going to www.SpencerStudios-BR.com and must be completed by 3:00 TODAY!
Good afternoon! We are back with a Parent Pro Tip for you all about your child's Google Account.
As part of G Suite for Education, EBR Schools offers a Cloud account for every student. This allows access to apps such as Google Drive, Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets, Google Drawings, Google Classroom, and Google Forms, among other integrated apps that are too numerous to list!
Students DO NOT have access to Gmail; however, they have a Gmail Address. When logging in to sites such as Clever with Single Sign On for the first time, students will need to enter their username followed by the District's domain name. Example:
The domain name is @ebrschools.org. The password is the same one listed on your child's online access card.
The domain name is auto-filled on student Chromebooks and allows simpler access for your child to log in. However, at home you will need to include the domain name. If you try to access your child's accounts using YOUR Gmail, you will get error messages.
This account will follow your child through his or her entire education as a student of East Baton Rouge Parish School System. The password will change every year but the username will remain the same.
Today we set a new carpool record: 3:45 p.m.! Thanks to everyone for hanging your tags in your windows and following the procedures!
We are hoping to knock off those last 5 minutes by next week, so that we can regularly end carpool at 3:40 p.m., (and get out of the heat!)
Thanks to all of you who played along and participated in our "Which Carpool Parent Are You" Poll! and the winner was....Rebecca Reminder!
