August Letters, Themes, Events

You will receive a phone call from me in July & a letter in August with details regarding our Meet & Greet as well as our Parent Orientation meeting.  A supply list is included in your mailing.  PLEASE BRING ALL OF YOUR CHILD'S SUPPLIES TO PARENT ORIENTATION and place them in his/her grocery sack.  You are to bring your child to Meet & Greet.  Parent Orientation is for adults only, please.  It is extremely important you attend our Parent Orientation.  I look forward to meeting you and your child!  You can reach me by e-mail at:  

Special Classes will begin at the end of August:  Guidance Counseling, Enrichment, Music, and Library.  P.E. begins at the beginning of the school year! 

Be sure to look for our Weekly Class News in your child's folder each Friday - all you need to know about BSLK (and more!) will be on the newsletter!  In addition, a monthly calendar will be stapled inside your child's daily folder.  REMINDER:  our team color is the same as the daily folder.
