Fall Break: Just a reminder that next Wednesday, October 13, is a half day of school with dismissal at 11:45AM. Please note that there is no afterschool care on half days and the bus will run on a half day schedule. There will be no school on Thursday and Friday, October 14 and 15. Enjoy your Fall Break!

Private School Night at USC: The USC Women’s Soccer program is hosting Tennessee this Sunday October 10 at 2:00pm. They are hosting a Private School Day for Ben Lippen, Hammond and Heathwood Hall. Wear your school shirts or colors and get in for $1 admission. There will be a tailgate set up before kickoff where kids can play games and cheer on the players as they walk out!

Book Fair News from Mrs. Swift: It is Tuesday of Book Fair week and we are off to a great start. We do have a new class contest that will run through the end of this week – a “Loose Change” contest. I have asked the children to bring in pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters so we can buy some books for our Northeast library, a gift from us to them. The class with the most money collected will have one student chosen from their class to compete against the chosen teachers in Friday’s Minute to Win It activity. Just a reminder that the book fair will be open all week from 7:30AM – 4:00PM and will close at the end of morning carline on Friday, October 8. Thank you so much for supporting the Library at BLS!

Congratulations to the following Book Fair coloring contest winners:

Callie Moore (1st Grade)
Madelyn Baughman (2nd Grade)
Bett DiBiase (2nd Grade)
Ellison Whitaker (3rd Grade)
Natalie Green (4th Grade)

Most Creative: Abby Rios (3rd)

Mask Reminder: Please remember to send your student to school each day with a mask and an extra in their book bag. Thank you!
