BPES Launches the School Year Before School Starts!

Back-To-School Parent Meetings Thursday, August 31st

New Family Orientation, September 1st

Open House Friday, September 1st


This year we are hosting both our Back-to-School Parent Meetings and Open House before school starts. 


We will be hosting meetings that will serve our Pre-School through 5th grade families throughout the day (See Schedule Below)

These meetings will take the place of the traditional Back-to-School Nights that usually happen in mid-September. 

There will also be a session to train Parent Volunteers which is open to all parents of students Pre-School, Pre-K, K-5.


In early August, you will be asked to update your Parent Portal information. Shortly after that, you will receive notification of your child’s teacher for the coming 2017-2018 school year.  This will come in an email from Synergy.  It will be necessary for you to complete or update your information in order to receive communication from Synergy or Canvas.
