Providing a glimpse inside our four walls
Mason did an amazing job of leading the Pledge of Allegiance at the governing board meeting last week. Way to represent BMES!!! Proud of you!
We are so LUCKY to have such amazing kids!
Apple experiment in 4th grade. Talk lovingly to one apple and insults at the other. When you cut them open, you could see the difference in how our words affect others!
After learning about endangered, extinct animals and fossils, 1st grade did some excavating of their own. As paleontologists, they dug chocolate chip “fossils” out of cookies and used pattern blocks to create some of the dinosaurs they were learning about.
More amazing Art from our amazing kids!
Sixth grade presented their statistical question data and analysis this week. They also reviewed math concepts using lucky charms as manipulatives!
Pi Day winners from each 6th grade homeroom. They memorized the most digits of Pi! Pictured L to R Kyra 62 digits (Bauer Homeroom) Raina 115 digits (Jones Homeroom) Brooke 43 digits (Smith Homeroom)
This week, each third-grade class performed as a part of a Dance & Drama showcase. So exciting that our kids are able to get this experience. Thank you to our teachers and kids - you put the Art in ❤️!
☘️ Kids in Bobcat Club helped to put together VIP Goodie Bags for the teachers this week. They did the hard work and Mr. Owsley was more than happy to make the special deliveries to the classrooms. ☘️
Students in Mrs. Pollicino’s class finally got the answer to the question, “when will we ever use this in real life?” Here they are using their newly acquired statistics skills to be epidemiologists to submit reports to the CDC regarding the Zombie Outbreak.

Community Event

Let’s take a stand against pancreatic cancer

Too many of our Cave Creek Unified School District family members have battled pancreatic cancer. Join in the fight and show what can be accomplished when we stand together. Please consider making a donation to show them all that they are not alone.

So excited to share that the world famous Bobcat Spirit Store is now ONLINE!!! Now your whole pack can get outfitted in the latest spirit wear supporting your BMES Bobcats!!

Place an order by noon on Thursday, and your order will be delivered to your child's teacher on Friday to be sent home with them! Yep, this means even grandma and grandpa can place orders from afar and your Bobcat will be stylin within just a few days!
