Fun Run

A sure sign of the coming spring is the annual BES PTA Fun Run! The Fun Run is a terrific family event- all BES families welcome!

This year’s event will be held Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 9am. We’ll gather on the BES blacktop and then run a 1 mile course through the Bannockburn neighborhood.


Congratulations to Alex Akpinar who created the winning design for this year’s Fun Run t-shirts!
