Memories of elementary school are often laced with positive thoughts of teachers who cared and lessons that built a foundation for future learning. At Boundary Street Elementary, students enjoy those elements and personal responsibility for a positive environment.
That means that boys and girls at Boundary Street, also known as Boundary Street Bees, are proactive in keeping hallways quiet throughout the school day. If extra noise is heard, the BSE bees know that a visitor has arrived or that there may be a problem. As they move from class to activity to recess to cafeteria, they refrain from talking so that their environment will remain safe.
This fall, the BSE Parent-Teacher Organization has enhanced the cafeteria with an extra treat for the boys and girls. On each table, small fall flower arrangements may be seen, while the boys and girls eat quietly. These little extras have caused smiles among the cafeteria personnel and students.
One teacher remarked with delight, “the flowers have made it brighter.”
A tall fifth grader commented that the centerpieces made him feel happy, because they were pretty.
Flowers and bees combine with positive pluses to create citizens of tomorrow and a Newberry area that continues to be a great place to live.
