Word From The Woods
Bishop Woods Newsletter 3.14.22
Hello Bishop Woods Family!
This is Ms. Crisci with some updates for this week:
On Monday, March 14th, students in grades 6-8 will be participating in Junior Achievement Career Day! This is an exciting opportunity for our middle school students to hear more about careers that exist in different industries. Thank you to our partner, Junior Achievement, for organizing this event.
Some upcoming important date:
3/17 is St. Patrick's Day and students will be showing school spirit by wearing green.
3/17 students will participate in the 5 P’s parade where students in the lower grades will parade through the hallways showing their 5P spirit!
3/18 is a day for Hope and Healing. Staff, students, families and caregivers can participate in free Wellness Workshops.
3/18 EARLY DISMISSAL students will leave school at 12:50.
8th Grade Parents...a letter is being sent home by the end of the week. The letter will explain end of year dates, activities, and costs.
Although we are not strictly enforcing the uniform policy this year, we still have a dress code. I have included the language for the dress code from our handbook below, but the violations that need to be addressed immediately are no torn or ripped pants, no belly shorts, short shorts, or hoods on heads. Also, as the weather becomes warmer, please be sure that your child does not come to school with flip flops or open toed shoes, as they are dangerous at recess time.
Dress Down Days Dress Code (from Handbook)
NO shirts or pants with any in appropriate writing or pictures
NO baggy pants hanging below the waist
NO ripped or torn pants or jeans
NO revealing tank tops (spaghetti straps), NO belly shirts, NO short shorts, NO muscle shirts
NO hats, caps, do-rags, bandanas or coats worn (during the day)
NO heavy jewelry or markings that may be identified as gang related
NO flip flops, open toe shoes, or shoes that may be a safety hazard
Thank you for being a part of the Bishop Woods family! Have a great week!
