Easy Moneymakers
YES we still collect BOX TOPS!  Every single one you turn in pays us 10 cents.  That adds up fast, and it is so easy to do.  Just cut them out, and turn them into your child's teacher, or the front office, or the library. 

Did you know that we also collect MAJOR MARKET RECEIPTS?  Just do your regular grocery shopping there, and save your receipts for us.  Major Market pays us 1% of the total amount.  Easy money for our school!  Just turn them in to your child's teacher, the front office, or the library.

Come and enjoy Kona Ice on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month (except for "no school" days) outside the school office!

BULLYING
Are you concerned about bullying?  
    It is important to know that bullying can be physical or emotional and occur in person or on computers and phones (cyber bullying).  Bullying is a behavior that is not acceptable at any school in Escondido.  It is also important to know that bullying is not a one time act; it is something that happens repeatedly over time.  A child who is being bullied can experience fear and anxiety.
    If your child is the victim of bullying, please encourage him/her to report the incident.  Reporting can be done in person, by phone (760-432-4060), or online.  Contact the Principal, Mrs. Freeman (sfreeman@eusd.org), or one of the Vice Principals, Michelle Einspar (meinspar@eusd.org), or Lori Ricci (lricci@eusd.org).  To make an online bullying report, click on the STOP BULLYING icon on the BVMS homepage" or click here.
    You can also click here for information from the school district, or visit www.stopbullying.gov to learn more and to help.
