September Updates!

Welcome Back! We’re looking forward to a great year ahead with all of our new and returning families!

Back to School Night – Tuesday 9/10 🍎📝

Please see the attached schedule for Back to School Night. Also, please join us afterward for the Annual BAS Parent Social at Kilkenny’s. Everyone is already out and about so it is the perfect time to come and cheers to a new school year with everyone! Appetizers on us 🙂

Welcome Back After School Playdate, Pretzel Sale & Spirit Day – Friday 9/20 🐾 🥨

Wear your BAS shirts today! New students: your BAS shirts are on the way so feel free to wear a BAS hand-me-down shirt if you have one or a Cranford shirt with the same colors to join in the spirit. Pretzels will be sold after school at each pick up door and on the playground for $1 each. Children attending aftercare will be able to purchase pretzels before they get on the bus. Students in the AM kindergarten classes will receive a form to send in money prior and the children will get their pretzels at dismissal.

Backyard Bash – Thursday 9/26 – 5:30-7:00 PM 🎉🎈

Come on over to the back fields behind the school for the party! There will be all sorts of inflatables and music. We will also have a food truck there for anyone who wants to buy dinner. It is always a great time to catch up with everyone. Look for the flyer coming home next week! Also, to cut down on plastic water bottles we are asking that everyone bring their own to go water.
