The first ever BBES “book swap” was held during Night at the Museum on April 12. Students chose from a large selection of books to take home and keep. It was like a Scholastic book fair, but free! Thank you to our reading specialist Mrs. Guzzi for organizing this wonderful event. The Bridge of Books Foundation donated 400 chapter books, and teachers and students donated many more.

The Bradley Beach business district was bedecked with student artwork for Cinco de Mayo this year. Kearny Bank, Panchos and Juanchos, Present, and Stockroom Modern General Store all displayed BBES student artwork in the project organized by art teacher, Mrs. DiZefalo. Fourth graders made adobe puebla pastel drawings, painted Frida Kahlo portraits and created tissue paper flowers. Fifth graders drew Aztec gods and warriors.

I can’t help but feel insecure about what other people may be saying about me.
