  • I hope everyone had a restful and relaxing week off. It is hard to believe the end of 2018 is so close! We have a few events left in the school year.

  • Uniform Reminders – please make sure you have the appropriate uniform items. See attachment for reminders.

  • Advanced Groups: Please make sure to take home your polo shirt if you ordered it. If you still need to purchase yours, please bring $17.00 to school. Checks should be made out to “BYEU.”
