International Family Resources

International Subscription Mailing List

International Families can now opt-in to a subscription mailing list. It is a forum for families of BE international students to receive BE PTA translated emails, to share resources and experiences and connect with other international families at our school.  Emails are translated by BE parent volunteers and language translation is dependent on volunteer capacity. 


  • To opt-in, Go to and update your mailing preferences to select the international subscription list. 

  • Contact Camille Peretz, the PTA VP of International Liaison with any questions or to volunteer to be a parent translator! 

Volunteer Training for Japanese Families

The PTA and the ESOL team are organizing a training session for Japanese families interested in completing the Parent/Guardian and Community Volunteer form required to volunteer in the school and during ESOL classes next Tuesday, October 29th.

All parents interested in more information on Benchmark in the ESOL classroom will first meet with Ms. Petrossian from 8.30-9am in portable 1 and then head to the cafeteria for the volunteer training with Ms. Fried from 9-9.20am. We will provide a Japanese translator for both sessions.

Please join us for free coffee and a chance to learn more about how to volunteer and the ESOL program at our school. We look forward to seeing you there!
