  • The First Graders read the book Heartprints by P.K. Hallinan.  According to P.K. Hallinan, "a heartprint is formed when you do something kind.  Your love touches others leaving heartprints behind."  The students learned that kindness is a very big thing, and one simple act of kindness can change someone's entire day, leaving a lasting impression!  First Graders created lists of various ways they could show kindness in school, on the playground, and towards others.  The students wrote their kind acts and kind words on hearts, which are on a bulletin display at Lincoln Avenue School.


    Did you leave a heartprint today?

     We will try to go outside at recess as much as possible even if just for a walk (32 degrees and above). Please have your child dress accordingly!

  • The Cranford Kids Care Thanksgiving Food Drive took place at BAS on Wednesday, November 16.  Thanks to the generosity of our BAS families, 13 boxes were filled to the brim with various canned and boxed foods amounting to more than 520 pounds!  That amount will provide approximately 430 meals for neighbors in need to help brighten their Thanksgiving!  The students were very excited to share!

  • In addition to collecting food for those in need during this Thanksgiving season, students at BAS were also busy creating their own trail mix recipes or filling bags with various candies for distribution to our Cranford Fire Department and Cranford Police Department to show gratitude for keeping our community, friends, and families safe.  

    Thank you fire fighters and police officers for all you do!  

    We are thankful for each and every one of you!

    Students also squeezed in some fun celebrations just like the Pilgrims and Native Americans did so many years ago, remembering all that they are thankful for!

    Students also showed their school spirit during our annual BAS Pep Rally, led by our very own, "retired" second grade teacher, Mrs. Tierney!
