As the winter weather keeps getting colder and colder I thought it prudent to send out a reminder of our snow day policy.
If Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corp. closes for a snow day the Boys & Girls Club of Ellettsville will also be closed.
This means the BGCE will be closed for youth programming/child care. When RBBCSC opens back up so will the BGCE. I understand this is an inconvenience to all our families but we are thinking about the kiddos safety, your safety, as well as staff and volunteers safety.
The BGCE will continue to operate as normal on day that RBBCSC operates on a two hour delay.
We will make every effort to communicate our Snow Day closing through local media (TV, radio, online news). We will also make a post on our Facebook Page if you have not liked our page please do so now. We use our Facebook Page as a newsletter to keep our Club families and friends informed.
As always I thank you for the trust you give us with the care of your children. This is a responsibility we take seriously and are proud to have.

Major Saver cards can be purchased via cash, check or online at www.majorsaver.com. The online sale can be credited back to a particular student and school. All cards purchased online will be mailed directly to the customer.
Major Saver is excited to roll out a new feature this year making online sales easier for friends and family! On our homepage, you are able to enter your student’s information to create a CUSTOM LINK for your child that can be shared via social media or email. This link will automatically credit the online sale to your student when friends and family use the link to make their purchase!
Major Saver cards can also be purchased, and credited to a student, through the Major Saver App. Once the free app is downloaded to an Android or iOS device, buyers can choose a Major Saver card through the “buy cards” tab on the app. Once the buyer completes the transaction the offers will be stored in the Major Saver App. Buyers can then redeem offers directly from the app and do not need a physical card.
Major Saver stresses safe selling and discourages door to door campaigning. The company encourages students to sell to family members, church patrons, neighbors, other adults the family may know; and to always make sure their parents are involved.
Please consider purchasing one or more Major Saver cards this year to help benefit the Richland-Bean Blossom Community Education Foundation and participating schools.
Thank you for your support!

As a parent, you want your child to be prepared for their future but don't always know what that future will even look like, and that's where STEAM-based skills, Project-Based Learning, and a Growth Mindset all come into critical importance! We can't prepare our students for jobs that perhaps haven't even been yet defined. What we CAN prepare them with is a desire to solve problems, the need to navigate challenges, ways to communicate and interact successfully with peers, and the understanding that we can ALL learn and grow through problems.
Read this blog post about the connected nature of Project-Based Learning (PBL) and building a culture of growth mindset, where students feel equipped and empowered to make decisions regarding their own learning - a culture in which students are given opportunities to pursue knowledge and explore problems they can become passionate about! This is the learning we want taking place daily throughout R-BB schools!
