Eagle Update: September 4, 2020

Barton Hills Elementary

Hello BHE Families:

We had so much fun at the Drive By Hi yesterday - even during the rainy downpours for several grade levels. Thanks for taking the time out of your day to come and let us meet our students!

By this time you should have received an introductory email from your child's teacher along with grade level specific information. If you were unable to attend any of the grade level parent meetings they were recorded and are in the BLEND Community Page - with the exception of fifth grade. The Zoom host failed to press the record button like she thought she had. However, the slideshow is posted there and the fifth grade teachers are happy to answer any questions you might have!

For students who still need a Chromebook or iPad, we are offering a distribution here at Barton Hills on Sunday, September 6th (my previous email had the wrong date but not the wrong day) from 11 am to 1 pm. You will need your child's school ID number. If you are unable to come on Sunday, we will be able to distribute during the school week between the hours of 9 to 2 using our "curbside" service.

We are so excited to start this learning journey with students on Tuesday. Our teachers have been working so hard to make this such a different experience than everyone had in the spring. Please reach out to your teachers with questions and concerns - they are ready to help.
