PTO Movie Tonight 

Reminder that tonight is our PTO movie event! We will be inside the school. Please bring blankets to sit on and get there early to get your spot and pick up some concessions. We can't wait to see everyone there! 

Movie Time: 6:30pm 

Please note that since this event is after school hours, all children will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Dr. Recess is Coming

Bonnie Brae PTO, in partnership with Bonnie Brae Elementary, is excited to offer a series of student assemblies and recess games with “Dr. Recess” on Wednesday, March 15th during the school day.  Students are encouraged to wear Bonnie Brae spirit wear or school colors on Wednesday and should dress comfortably for some recess fun! The Bonnie Brae Cheer Squad will also kickoff the assemblies with a brief cheer! 

The research-based Dr. Recess “Trouble-Free Playground Program” helps to develop social-emotional intelligence, engages students in highly-active, constant movement type of games and activities, develops self-responsibility and intrinsic motivation, and uses an inclusion style of teaching.  

We look forward to a fun and engaging event with our Scotties on Wednesday.  Go Scotties Go!  Let’s get ready to recess!
