. Wow, the end of this school year is
near! What a busy and productive year it
has been! Thank you to all families for
the hard work you have done with your
child to help ensure growth and success.
It truly does take us all working together
to be sure everyone is the best they can
As summer quickly approaches, it
is time to review some of the summer op-
portunities available for student continued
Summer Cub Club is an option which
is very similar to the After School Cub
Club. Select students were given invi-
tations for this two-week session in
July. Please get those registration
forms back so your child can partici-
pate in this program and continue to
develop reading and math skills.
The Augusta County Library, Church-
ville Branch is offering a reading pro-
gram during the summer. There are
also similar programs at the Augusta
County Library in Fishersville and the
Staunton Public Library. Please keep
your child reading throughout the
You may continue to access the BME
Portaportal through the internet. This
provides children with a wealth of
practice activities in reading and math
so that they can continue to practice
skills. If you need more information
about the login for this, please call the
school and someone will be
happy to get the information to
There are books on the market
such as Summer Bridges which
give students a review of various
subject areas through a set of
activities to be completed briefly
each day of the summer. These
can be purchased online or from
the school store behind Seven-
Eleven in Fishersville.
Simple routine activities that you
can complete together during the
summer can help students de-
velop and extend their skills.
Cooking with kids is a classic.
Many math skills are developed
as students measure and re-
duce, or multiply the servings of
the recipe. Reading directions
and following them also enter in
as kids cook. Carpentry projects
or gardening projects can also be
a fun way to practice skills.
Again reading directions, follow-
ing directions, measuring, etc.
can be developed.
So as this school year comes to a
close, plan the summer doing fun
activities with your child/ren and help
them engage in learning opportuni-
ties as well. It means so much when
adults spend time with them, and
what a better way to enjoy your
summer days than spending time
with your child!

Third Grade News
Happy Spring! It’s such a busy time of year as we get close to our SOL tests, and the third grade teachers
would like you to be aware of a few things.
-Cub Buck Auction- We will be having a cub buck auction at the end of the year in order to collect
all loose cub bucks. Please send in any lightly used toys in order to help us with this.
-Sunscreen: We will be outside more often as the weather gets nicer. Please make sure that your
child comes to school with sunscreen and a hat, especially on special days like our kickball tourna-
ment and field day. These dates will be in your child’s planner.
-Newspapers: Mrs. McAllister is in need of newspapers for Science class. Please send in any old
newspapers you may have at home with your child.
-Tennis Shoes: Please make sure that your child has tennis shoes for gym and recess. If they are
coming to school with other types of shoes, they are welcome to keep a pair here to use during re-
cess and PE.
-Books: Many of our classroom books have gone home, and haven’t returned. We love that your
child is enjoying reading at home, but it is time for all books to come back. Please check in closets
and under beds, as we need these books for next year’s students.
-Ice Cream: We will be having an ice cream party to celebrate successful SOL testing. Please be on
the lookout for more details in Friday folders.
-Mints/Water- During SOL testing we’ve found that it’s helpful for students to have mints and water
to keep their brains engaged. Please consider donating a bag of peppermints and a few bottles of
water to your child’s class.
- SOL Testing- Your child will get a chance to show what they’ve learned this year on their SOL
tests. Please make sure that they have plenty of rest the night before, and have a hearty breakfast
before they arrive. It’s also important that they arrive on time to school. We’re looking forward to
seeing them shine!
-Homework- There will be no more vocabulary homework going forward. Instead, we will be review-
ing released Math SOL questions, and covering additional reading skills. Please continue to check
their planners nightly.
Thank you so much for your continued support as we wrap up the year!
From the BME Cafeteria:
This year has gone by super fast, and
now it has come time where we will
have to discontinue lunch charges as
of FRIDAY, MAY 16th. That will give every-
one plenty of time to get them paid up.
This also means if your child has a
charge, they will have to call home for the
money or a packed lunch. Please make
sure your charges are paid as we cannot
leave them on the books at the close of
the year. Thanks so much for another
successful school year!

This month we will be wrapping up our fitness testing which will
include the running and flexibility tests. We’ll be preparing and per-
forming our yearly mile run with the 4th and fifth grade classes.
This run is to prepare for their aerobic fitness test this spring. It is a
four lap run around the middle school track and it is timed in accor-
dance with The Virginia State Standards and The Presidents Chal-
lenge for Physical Fitness. The kids have been running in class
with tag activities and aerobic type exercise stations. The following
suggestions will be an additional help to your child’s performance:
Please make sure they have a good but light breakfast:
Nothing too sugary or heavy. Toast, a good cereal or
oatmeal would be a good meal for them. Fruit juices
are not suggested as they tend to be somewhat acidic
and disturbing to the stomach.
A good night’s rest. NO LESS than eight hours. This activity
is somewhat strenuous and requires enough sleep to
Medicines, inhalers, and other meds need to be taken care
of or ON HAND during the activity.
Sufficient footwear: Running shoes are recommended
with sufficient traction for outside or inside in case of
Training at home: A day on the weekend at a local high
