Bradie Shrum is excited to announce our new dismissal app, PickUp Patrol! PickUp Patrol is an online platform that manages dismissal time more efficiently and safely. Parents conveniently submit plan changes for their children using the free app. The school efficiently tracks absence, early dismissals and end-of-day plans. The system also helps speed up dismissal time and adds a layer of security for your children. Please check your child's folder this afternoon for more information, and watch for your parent/guardian account set-up email on Friday evening!

If you think music class doesn't involve movement, then you are wrong! Third grade students in Mrs. Gorman's classes were on their feet today after learning about crescendo, fortissimo, pianissimo and more! They were getting low for the quieter sounds and up and stretching their arms wide as the music got louder. Mrs. Gorman makes music fun at BSE!
