Events & Programs

Every year, the PTO is pleased to be able to fund a wide array of programs and events that support our school community and enrich the lives of students.  Below are some of the programs for the upcoming school year.
Fall Festival  - Every October, we hold our annual Fall Festival. We have an ever popular painted pumpkin contest and cake walk. Lots of fun is on hand with games, face painting, and dancing. The Festival coincides with the final day of the Fall Book Fair, so be sure to stop by the library and take a look at all of the great selections available for purchase.
Thanksgiving Lunch - November means the Thanksgiving Feast – a complete dinner that you get to enjoy with your children. The cafeteria staff will take care of all of the shopping, chopping and preparing – all you have to do is eat!
Holiday Gift Shop - In early December, we host a Holiday Gift Shop where children can purchase gifts for friends and family with the assistance of a helper.

Dining Out Nights - Several times a year, we hold a Dining Out Night.  Come on out and visit with friends and help out the school at the same time.  A percentage of the evening's proceeds are donated to the school.
Science Fair - Come join us and the student participants who can’t wait to share their science and technology discoveries with you at our annual Science Fair in February. 
Basketball Challenge  - For the last few years, Laurel Ridge Elementary School has challenged the BBES staff to a basketball game at Robinson Secondary School in spring.
Kindergarten Transition - Kindergarten Orientation is scheduled for early spring each year. The rising kinders will have an opportunity to visit the kindergarten classrooms while parents receive important information about the school and register their children. There will also be several kindergarten transition activities scheduled to take place during June, July and August so be sure to watch the Bonnie Brae website for those dates and times. It makes such a difference on that scary first day of school for those kinders that participated in the summer activities!
Teacher Appreciation (May) - We love our teachers and staff!  Each year in May, we celebrate them with a luncheon and small tokens of thanks.
