Mrs. Walters' News
Dear Bushnell Elementary Families,
We've had an awesome week celebrating all the wonderful staff members who work so hard each day to help all of our students learn and grow! Thank you to all of you who dropped off needed items to help make this week fun and delicious!
THANK YOU for supporting FOOD FIGHT 2021 with donations of food and paper products, to benefit FROM’s Food Pantry! This program benefits students and families in the Lowell Area Schools’ District throughout the year.
Did you know…
- FROM’s food pantry provides an average of 1,854 servings of fresh produce each month; 450 pounds of produce each week.
- Families leave with an average of 10 grocery bags of food each visit, up to two times per month.
- FROM’s food pantry is accessed three ways: through a Mobile Food Pantry on the last Saturday of the month; the Fulton Street pantry, and through the Commodities program.
- During the 2019 food fight, LAS students collected 6,225 items.
This next week, we encourage you to send to school needed paper products and personal care items: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap and sanitizer, paper towels, paper plates, deodorant. Each item contributed gets our school one point closer to the traveling trophy!
Wittenbach-Wege Center has some great summer opportunities for your children! Be sure to check out their website for more!

Attention families, we are asking that all PRIMARY households take a moment to update student information for the 2021-22 school year. This information will be used in place of the information cards usually completed in the fall. It is extremely important that this information is updated before the end of this school year. We are requesting that this be completed by May 28th.
Be sure to update ALL health information - only information shown during this process will be inside your child’s account.
This document will explain how to complete the process. There is also a video posted at the bottom of the document to show you what this process looks like.
Transportation Out of Boundary - For schools of choice or out of boundary students, you must complete this update in order to request transportation for next year. Transportation is not guaranteed for out of boundary students or schools of choice students. Transportation will be first come, first served and based upon availability for out of boundary students.
Secondary Households - we also ask that you update your information. Please see the bottom of the instruction document for information.
