This Week at Bush

Well--we're on the last stretch of school! It's been a very busy week and we've had a lot to celebrate! I'm thrilled that most of our classes were able to attend Field Day and had such a great time! Thanks to Coach Oestreich for helping organize such a great event and for helping make up the Kindergarten activities. It's hard to believe that we dodged a great deal of the weather this week.

MAP Testing is completed! Thanks again to everyone for helping with quiet hallways, supporting our test takers, and the encouragement. It's amazing how hard our kids worked and the attendance during testing was awesome! I loved hearing them say, "I ROCKED IT!" Great job BUSH SCHOOL! A BIG thank you to Leslea, Chelsea, Jennifer and Kristi for helping with the small groups. Mr. Davis was our sub and saved a couple of our different testing periods. I greatly appreciate our team work!

Thanks to everyone for attending our last Staff Meeting and for helping celebrate Juanita's retirement! It was nice to get out of the building and to have different surroundings for a change. It's always great to have an opportunity to celebrate with all staff members. It was good to have Whitney and Brandi join us. As we celebrated, we provided some going away gifts for Heather, Kate and Haley. We wish them the best of luck and will miss them!

As we're completing our assessments, I'm amazed at how much progress our kids have made! Thanks for bringing your students by the office so I have an opportunity to compliment and celebrate these wonderful accomplishments! Thanks for providing high quality engagement, hands-on learning, and encouraging kids to do their best!
