Our May Leaping Lancers were so plentiful that we had to split them up into 2 groups. Today's group has shown grit and perseverance all year long working and growing as individuals. We are so proud of these little ones for pushing through different adversities and growing, not only as learners but as amazing little humans! Great job ya'll!!!

On June 2nd from 5-7:30, BCEL/Pine River PTo is putting on our biggest event of the year...COLOR THE CREEK!! This is always such a fun event to end our school year with. This year Color the Creek is getting even more special. Mrs. Bredt will be representing the organization Riding for Ryan. Along with her family, she will be handing out free bicycle flags to anyone and everyone who would like one. These free flags make kids so much more visible as they enjoy riding their bikes!

Yesterday was the first of our visits with our student-athletes from the high school. Mr. Freeland, our athletic director, arranged for some of our athletes to visit classrooms to read books on sportsmanship or assist in an activity. Our BCEL students loved their time with them. They were total superheroes in the eyes of our Little Lancers!! Thank you, Mr. Freeland and our BCHS athletes for visiting us!! We loved having you here!!

For Autism Acceptance month BCEL has been using the morning announcements to bring all the things we all have in common to the forefront. Whether you have Autism or not we all want to play, be accepted, be included, make friends, and be able to communicate! We want our Little Lancers to hear the different ways communication can occur. Last week our friend, Jonathon, used his communication device to help us with the pledge. This morning Ben used words with pictures to read the pledge to get our day started! Both helpers did an amazing job!!!
