    A lightning storm is one of the most dramatic shows of nature. You may feel like rushing outside to experience the blinding bolts, with the loud CRACKs and rumbles of surround-sound thunder following close behind.

    But don’t.

    Lightning is dangerous. Stay inside.

    Each year there are around 25 million lightning flashes in the United States. That’s a lot of chances to be a lightning victim. Although most people who are struck by lightning survive, many are badly injured, some permanently.

    The races began at 11 a.m. and ended a unit of study on alternative types of energy. 

  • Seuss on the loose

    Yes! Yes! At BES, could you guess?
    Yes! Yes! He’s on the loose, that man we know, that Dr. Seuss!
    Rhyming verse and equation, sparking each imagination…
    Silly cat and counted fish, hatching egg and balanced dish,
    Why fun is found in every book! See there, just look! It’s green eggs and ham they cook!
    And on it goes as a week of rhyme and imagination fill the classrooms at Bushnell Elementary School – just one of several campuses across the nation to take part in the annual birthday celebration of the late Dr. Seuss.
