Mrs. Walters' News
Dear Bushnell Elementary Families,
This week we welcomed 10 students back to in-person learning at Bushnell! It was fun for each class to have new friends to get to know.
We continue our March is Reading Month next week with a week talking about how Books Help Us Be RESPONSIBLE! We've had fun reading and experiencing our Sweet 16 books in our book battle at school. We'll be voting next week for our Elite 8! Reading Logs are flowing in and so far we've read over 800 books as a school!
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 23rd, 6:00 pm! We'll be having a virtual family fun night complete with a story and art project! Next Friday your child will come home with kit that will include a special project we will complete together virtually, we'll listen to a story and have a dance party! I'll send out the information to connect on a link on Monday, March 22nd.
Our Spring conferences will happen next week (March 15-19) and will again occur virtually. Your child's teacher will reach out with sign up times for you to check in and see all the progress your child has made so far. You will also receive a 2nd trimester report card with more details.
Attention families with incoming kindergarteners!!! Kindergarten enrollment for next fall will open on Monday, February 15th! If you have a student who will turn 5 by September 1st 2021, they can start their school journey! You may also sign a waiver for your child to start school if they turn 5 by December 1st 2021. Paper work required includes proof of residency, original birth certificate, up to date immunizations and a health appraisal. Information can be found on our Lowell Area Schools website here.
