The Grinch has been spotted a few times this week at BPS. He's been a popular character with the students. Yesterday was the 2nd grade Grinch Day celebration. The kids loved having him there and the Grinch even surprised Mr. Campbell & kindergarten. (The Grinch was portrayed by Nick Aulbach, son of 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Cristi Aulbach. Thank you, Nick!) #HolidayFunAtBPS🎄

The BPS Elf is at it again! This time he's wreaking havoc with the Christmas tree! What a naughty elf! He'd better turn that tree (and behavior) around or there will be coal in his stocking for sure! Look what he did to staff photos in the hallway! https://youtu.be/xj29XVZc06s

Elf on the Shelf fans will understand that there is some (un)serious mischief taking place at BPS. Teacher photos have been vandalized and other shenanigans have taken place. Students and staff were sure they knew who the culprit was- and then this happened! That sneaky elf! 🎄
