I hope that everyone was able to enjoy the beautiful fall weather that we experienced this past weekend. This week marks the beginning of a very important week at BPA! This week begins our Fall Conference Week where parents and teachers have time to actually discuss academic strengths and areas of growth for our children. Please take advantage of this time in the best interest of our students. Monday, October 27, 2014 is the last Fall conference week day. If you have not received a sign up form, please contact the main office to find out how you can sign up for a conference!
Friday, October 24, 2014 is our Fall Festival. Our PTA has worked very hard to put on a great time for our students. I am asking all parents to please see any member of the PTA to sign up to volunteer. We need all hands on deck to make this work. A special snaps to all of the parents who came out this past Sunday for Fall Festival Work Day. Volunteers are needed as early as 8am this Friday to help out with set-up. I hope to see all of you at some point during the day. Please ensure that you send back the permission form for your child to participate. Students may wear costumes to the Fall Festival only. All costumes must be child-friendly.
Fall Picture Day has been rescheduled for October 29th. Our school has been given a huge donation from Scholastic which entails every student receiving 5 free books! Our school will also receive a Reading Oasis, which is a room filled with over 1200 books, brand new furniture, and rugs. The big day is October 28th. Please join us for our kick-off celebration at 8:30am that day where we will have volunteers from Rubbermaid, the company making most of this day possible! Don’t forget to send back all media release forms for your child to be photographed and/or videotaped that day.
Have a great week and don’t forget to be sure to engage in a Fall conference with your child’s teacher!
