Bobcat Families:

It's time to grab your family, friends, neighbors, and/or church/service groups and come give back to our school. Saturday, October 15th from 8am-10am is LOVE OUR SCHOOL DAY at SF!

This is a day when families and community members volunteer to help complete projects around our SF campus.

We encourage you to share the sign up link with anyone and everyone---maybe even sign up as a group and/or family. The more the merrier. Use the link above to pick your slot and let's show up in a big way Bobcats!


**We will open up additional slots and projects as the current ones fill up. We just want to ensure we have a wide range of projects being completed.**



THANK YOU so much for taking time to give back to our campus and showing our students and staff just how much we LOVE OUR SCHOOL!


NOTE: SF LOVE OUR SCHOOL projects are set up for volunteers to donate their time, talents, and project supplies. Many projects require cleaning supplies that volunteers will bring with them. Non-toxic or natural cleaning supplies are preferred. Clorox & disinfectant wipes are also appropriate.

Book Fair!

From the desk of Mrs. Crabbs...


Our much anticipated book fair arrives next week! Classroom previews will be 9/29 and 9/30, with Monday, 10/3 as needed and then the fair will be in full swing!


eWallets are available to make shopping the fair easy and safe! Parents may sign up/reactivate eWallets for their child. If your child had a balance after the spring fair, you should receive an email from Scholastic Books one week prior to our fair on how to apply the balance to a new ewallet. This is a secure, cash-free way for your child to shop at the fair! There is no charge to set up an eWallet. Plus, this is a great way for friends and family to help share the love of reading, so be sure to share the link! Visit https://www.scholatic.com/bf/sfbobcats.

Weekly Message from the Founder of ALL THINGS EQ (Danna Evans):

The motto this week has been:

I am willing to introduce myself & get to know new people.

Students may have a desire to speak to new students but simply aren’t sure how to approach them and start a conversation.

You can help your child feel more confident by teaching them this formula:

  1. Say hello. Say your name. Ask their name. “Hi, I’m Mason. What’s your name?”
  2. Ask a question using their name. “Hi, Trey. What’s your favorite sport?”
  3. Respond. Answer the question and ask another. “Basketball’s cool. I like football too. Do you have a favorite team?”
  4. Expect awkward silences. They’re normal & you can minimize them by asking more questions.
  5. When you’re ready to leave, say, “It was nice speaking with you. See you later.”

The habit builder for this week is to teach your child this formula at home. It’s fun to have these practice conversations with your kids, and it helps them build their confidence as well.

As parents, it’s easy to over-worry about our kids and wonder whether they have enough friends. Most of the time, our worry is misplaced. If your child cannot proclaim who their friends are, don’t be alarmed.

Students often seek out which activity they want to participate in at lunch more than they seek out a person. This is a normal, healthy way to spend their recess, and it is through these activities that they will forge their friendships over time.

Do you have a child starting KINDER in the Fall of 2023?
