Personally Owned Devices

As we strive to deliver a World-Class Education for our students, we believe that allowing students to use digital tools can open more learning opportunities in our classrooms.

That is why the District is allowing students to use Personally Owned Devices (P.O.D.s). The goal is to leverage these devices, so that students have access to learning applications and online information throughout the school day, not just when they are in a computer lab or when using school-owned devices. Any student, grades 3-5, who would like to bring a P.O.D to BRE must complete the online permission form and turn in the POD Waiver to their classroom teacher.  For more information, please view the presentation on P.O.D.s.

  • School Accountability Committee

    We have two vacancies on our School Accountability Committee (SAC) this year.  These vacancies are filled via an election within the community and will take place before the end of September.  This committee is comprised of parents, teachers, and community members from the surrounding area.  It’s charge is to advise the principal and the administration team on decisions that affect the students and overall culture and climate of Buffalo Ridge.  

    This is a great way for parents to be able to learn more about the workings of the school as well as contribute to the school culture and vision.  If this is something you are interested in, or have more questions about SAC, please email Mr. Veit at John.Veit@dcsdk12.org.

Fundraising Reminders

Don't forget to use your King Soopers Gift Cards. BRE receives 5% back on all purchases (groceries and gas) at all King Soopers or City Markets. If you don't have a card already, you can pick up a form at school under the BRE bulletin board.


Our first Box Tops challenges were a huge success in 2012-2013 raising over $2,000 for our school just from our BRE families collecting Box Tops from items they are already purchasing. We hope you will continue to collect more Box Tops for our next BRE Box Tops challenge!

Did you know you can link your Target Red Card VISA (not a debit card) back to BRE so our school can earn 1% back on all your purchases made through your card?  While 1% may not seem like much, dollars spent at Target can really add up over a year. The program is easy to sign up for so https://www-secure.target.com/redcard/tcoe/home to learn more!
