Bronco Blessed

Despite all the challenges that we've faced so far this year, our students had a great Valentines, Mardi Gras, get ready for break week last week! All of the classes took some time to do something fun and the smiles were seen throughout the building. Our teachers and staff continue to make me proud for all of their efforts to make things "normal" for our students. Thank you for your continued support! We love our Broncos! (Here's hoping for a boring week next week!)

What's happening this week?

*Wow, what a week we had with all the cold weather! We are ready to get back to normal and dress code will resume on Monday, Feb 22nd. We hope the relaxed dress code was helpful for Thursday and Friday.

*Let's hope for some warmer weather soon!

*Good luck on the spring fundraiser. Remember no door to door selling to be safe. Always be sure your child sells to people that you know. All payments made online and send in your order form. Happy selling!

*With the cold weather that we've had lately, please remember to follow the dress code. Jackets must fully zip from top to bottom (no hoodies that don't fully zip) and leggings must be navy, white, or gray. No patterns allowed. Shirts worn under uniform shirts must be white or navy.

*Be sure to write your child's name inside of their jackets. This helps if they misplace their jacket.

*Please be sure that you are sending a water bottle with your child each day. We have water for refills but can't supply multiple bottles each week to students. Thank you for your help with this.

*Please check to be sure that your 3rd-5th grader has their mask each day. If they forget it and they ride on the bus, they don't get one until they get to school. We appreciate your help in keeping everyone safe.

*If your child or any member of your immediate household is tested for COVID, please keep them home until you get the test results. Your help with this is greatly appreciated.

*Please remember to check PowerSchool often as that is the best way to see current grades. Be sure that you are encouraging your student to do their best everyday. It is much easier to begin with good grades than it is to pull low grades up from incomplete or missing assignments.

*If you have not paid your student's supply fee, please pay it as soon as possible.

*If you have a new address and/or contact numbers, please call the office so we can be sure to get those updated.

*Be sure that you join the teacher and bus driver REMIND groups and follow our FB page and our school website.

*We are doing our part to get info out to you so please help us by sharing information and helping us reach all parents.

Interested in learning more about sign language?

Check out this resource that Mrs. Andrea shared with us. Many of our students have learned some American Sign Language (ASL) from Mrs. Andrea. We'd love you to check out this resource and learn another way to communicate with all of our Broncos.

Bus Driver Remind Codes

Please join the REMIND group for your child's bus driver. This is a great way to communicate with your driver. Please remember that they are not allowed to reply during routes and will reply before or after their routes. Text the code for your child's bus to 81010 to join their REMIND group.
