  • FAMILY GAME NIGHT is March 29th from 6:30 - 8:00. Stop by and enjoy learning how to play any number of Gamewright Games.  We will have games for all elementary age ranges, as well as volunteers on hand to teach you how to play the games. While spending time with your kids is its own reward, the fact that the event is FREE makes it even sweeter. If you are thinking about joining us, please consider completing this Google form so that we can ensure we have our volunteers where they are needed the most.
  • Spring may have sprung, but we’re not slowing down! We still have plenty of volunteer opportunities left!
    • On April 25th, the PTA will be running a raffle in conjunction with the Science and Invention Fair and Enrichment Fair. If you are interested in helping the PTA organize the event, please complete this Google form. If you have any questions, please contact Patrick Croushler at
    • PTA elections will be held during our May General Meeting. As outlined by our organization’s bylaws, a nominating committee consisting of 3 individuals must be established in order to nominate an eligible person for each executive board position from a list of interested individuals; and report the nominations to the general membership in the May 10th BEAR Facts. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please complete this Google form by Sunday, March 24th. If you have any questions, please contact Kori Jones, BWES PTA President, at A member of the PTA will reach out to interested parties following the March 24th deadline.
    • The BWES PTA is determining whether it should organize a spring carnival in 2020 in order to help with fundraising. The Waterloo Elementary PTA, which has run a successful carnival/fundraiser for many years now, has agreed to meet with the BWES PTA to share their knowledge and experiences. If you would like to take an active role in determining the feasibility of undertaking such a large endeavour, please complete this Google form. (Your participation on this committee doesn’t mean you have volunteered yourself to help run the carnival if we move forward. That sign up will require a different Google form:-)
  • Our next PTA meeting is March 20th from 6:30 - 8:00pm in the BWES cafeteria. We will have child care available for school aged children. If you bring your school aged child(ren), we kindly ask that you also bring items from home for them to play with/do. This includes books, coloring, homework, an electronic device, etc. Can’t be at the meeting, but still want to join in the conversation? Call 605-313-4197 and then enter the access code 886259.
  • Our student community needs your help!  Please keep an eye out for Box Tops on items around your house. Each Box Top collected helps get the BWES family closer to reaching our goal for the year.  Box Tops turn into $$ which the PTA uses to host fun events for the school. For our March submission, BWES earned $100.10. That’s 1,000 Box Top collected between November and February! Let’s keep this momentum up for the rest of the school year.  Visit to discover all of the different ways to earn Box Tops. Also, be on the lookout for our next Box Top challenge in April.
