Principal's Weekly Announcements

  • Friday, February 3, 2023

     

    Hello, BSCSD Elementary families.  Please see our updates from the week below.  We wish you all a wonderful weekend!

                                                                      -BSCSD Elementary Principals

    Important Upcoming Dates:

    No One Walks Alone - Parent Information Night

    Now on February 15, 2023 (The original date of January 25 was moved due to inclement weather), the district will host an evening program for parents focused on a personal and open discussion about depression, mental illness, and suicide, as well as how to speak about it with the youth in our school community.

     

    Free Breakfast and Lunch Opportunity

    The District will be providing a free breakfast and/or lunch on several upcoming dates to encourage students to sample the available meals offered by the District. Free breakfasts will be available to all students on February 6, 13, 27 and March 6. Lunch will also be provided free on February 6 and 27.  All students will be able to receive the free meal, both breakfast and lunch on these select dates. Any additional items on these dates will be charged as normal.

     

    Cold Weather Gear

    During the winter months, we make every effort to get students outside for recess when the weather allows.  Outside recess occurs when the Real Feel temperature is above 20 degrees.  Please make sure that students bring appropriate clothing for outside play.  When there is snow, students need appropriate snow clothes (pants, gloves, boots, hats, etc) to use snow play areas.  Students without these items will still have outdoor recess, but they will be limited to the areas that have been cleared of snow.

     

    Valentine’s Day

    Please remember that if you are sending in Valentines for your child’s class, they will need to adhere to our district’s wellness policy; no unhealthy or homemade food valentines can be shared with students (ex. No candy attached to a card).  At this time, any food sent in for a class must be purchased through our district’s food vendor.   It’s a great idea to send in non-food items for Valentine's- below is a list of ideas. Thank you for your continued support!

    • Cards

    • Pencils, erasers

    • Stickers

    • Small toys

    • Books

    Cellular devices

    The use and ownership of cellular phones and smart watches have grown consistently over the last several years in our elementary schools.  With busy schedules before and after school, we recognize that some families have chosen to use these devices to stay in communication with one another.  For those families that do provide students with a phone or smartwatch during the day, these devices need to be kept off and stored in their backpacks during the school day to avoid any distractions and prevent misuse.

    Instructional Technology

    December 5th -10th is The Hour of Code. This is a worldwide event that coincides annually with National Computer Science Week.   The Hour of Code is an initiative built to encourage students to spend an hour learning computer programming/coding.  The hope is for students to continue with these fun activities beyond the hour.  In preparation for the event, working with the network team, we unblocked all the sites that are Ed Law 2d approved and properly vetted for student and network safety.  Each building received posters to help promote the event.  There are also digital banners running inside of the Scottie’s Dashboard.  The buttons/hyperlinks to the sites will remain on the dashboard for students to continually utilize throughout the year. If you would like to try these activities, please scan the QR code below.
