• BEH Weekly Family Message

    Hello BEH Families, 

    Last week was a busy and fun week!! It was great to see those of you that were able to attend our STEAM Night and Storybook Parade at the end of the week. The students and staff worked so hard and it was great to see them share their work with the community. Additionally, we got to honor Ms. Ellie & Ms. Joanne with rides on the fire truck at the Storybook Parade as they will both be retiring from BEH Kindergarten this year. The celebrations and fun have just begun, so be sure to check out some of the fun coming up at BEH in our last few weeks this year:
    BEH SUNchella:
    This Thursday from 4:00-7:00 PM our SUN program will be hosting their annual SUNchella community celebration complete with food, a DJ, a petting zoo, a reptile exhibit, face painting, and much more. Here is a flyer with some of the info. We hope you can come out and celebrate the closing of SUN school for this year.

    PPS Successful Schools Survey – Family Feedback (Closes on Friday, May 31st):

    We would really like your feedback on how we are doing in serving your students and family at Boise-Eliot/Humboldt. As of right now, we have 19 family surveys completed. Our goal is to receive feedback through the survey from at least 50 BEH families. The survey is anonymous, and it takes about 15–20 minutes to complete. We appreciate you taking the time to help guide our planning and work for next school year. Click this link to complete the survey. Thank you so much!


    Summer Hosting Opportunity for Families:

    Bring the world home this summer: Host an international student for 2–4 weeks! A local nonprofit is seeking hosts for Japanese high school students (7/11-25) and college students from various countries (8/11-31, 8/18-9/7, 8/18-9/14). Hosting an international student is a great way to make international friends, learn about a new culture, and have fun! Students will have weekday classes and activities at PSU (commuting on public transit) and look forward to spending evenings and weekends experiencing American culture and practicing their English with their host. Hosts receive orientation materials, 24/7 support, and a small stipend. ACES is a PNW nonprofit that has been connecting families and students since 1995.

    PTA Fundraiser:

    Our annual BINGO for BEH Event, hosted by the PTA, is also around the corner at the end of the month. You can use THIS LINK to RSVP for the fundraiser. This will be a fun event (adults only please) on Friday, May 31st; with dinner, drag Bingo, awesome prizes and a night of community and fundraising, hosted by the PTA. We’d love to see all of our BEH community there for this fun celebration to support our school and close out another great year!

    Field Day:
    We will have our annual Field Day on Friday, June 7th. This will happen during the school day, and it will involve lots of fun activities on our playground and in our school gym that students will rotate through. The success of this event is dependent on the support of families volunteering to set up, run stations, and help with clean up. So if you are interested in volunteering, please let the office or Ms. Smith know.
    • 5th Grade Promotion will be on Thursday, June 13th, starting at 5:30 in the gym. We will need students to be here 15 minutes early to be ready to enter.
    • PK Promotion will be at 9:00 AM on Friday, June 14th in the BEH gym.
    • Kindergarten Promotion will follow the PK promotion at 10:00 AM on Friday in the BEH gym.
    There are about four weeks left of the school year, but as you can see, they will be busy. In addition to these family events, we also have several field trips that students will be going on as we close out the year, so please ensure that your students are at school every day and on time so that they do not miss out on any of the fun as we close out the school year.
    Today, we had our Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) assembly and students got to learn more about the many countries and cultures that are encompassed within AAPI while also enjoying some traditional Hawaiian Dances and a traditional Dragon Dance. Ask your students what they thought about the information and dances shared. 

    We look forward to seeing you all at some of our final events in the coming weeks and are hopeful that you will continue to share your feedback through the Successful Schools Survey this year to help guide us around what we are doing well and how we can work to improve.
    Take care, 
    Mr. Kaveh
