Mrs. Walters' News
Dear Bushnell Elementary Families,
Wow! This year has flown by! This will be the final 'official' newsletter of the year!
We want to congratulate all the first grade students who will be moving on to Cherry Creek next year for 2nd grade. We will miss you but know that you will be amazing Cherry Creek Champs!
Thank you to all who participated in our annual FROM food fight! We had 1402 items donated for families in need! That is WAY more than usual, especially for our youngsters! Congratulations to Mrs. Henige's class who won a special prize after donating 213 items!
Please help your child continue their progress with activities and enrichment throughout the Summer. Here are some great ideas by grade level!
Summer Brain Gain https://www.kentisd.org/SummerBrainGain/
We are again running Arrows on the Move this summer. It is a free program and allows you to bring your student to our school libraries all over the district throughout the summer. Lowell’s Englehardt Library will be teaming up with us this summer as well. It is so important to keep your child reading throughout the summer, and if you don’t make it a goal, it is easy to let the reading slip. Please consider signing your child up for this. I am also encouraging our students to access IXL online throughout the summer.
Your student should be receiving MAP reports soon. These reports show how your child has grown from the fall of this school year in math and reading. I am VERY impressed with our scores this spring. As a school, our scores show that Bushnell students, as a whole, are higher academically than students across the nation and have grown significantly more than these same students. Although we do very well, we still use these MAP scores to evaluate our teaching and learning and look for areas of instruction where we can improve. If you have any questions about these scores, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Kindergarten Roundup Visitation appointments will be held on June 8 and 9, 2021. Parents with incoming kindergarten students who did not attend GSRP or Curiosity Corner preschools, be on the lookout for an email with signup info coming soon.
Don’t forget to check out all of the summer camps that are taking place this summer. There are many great sports camps to choose from. Go to www.lowellsportscamps.com to sign up! Deadline is May 20th if you want to ensure receiving a t-shirt.
LOST & FOUND!!!! We will be setting up tables outside along the parking lots with all of the lost and found items from the year. There are A LOT!!! The items will be out Tuesday-Friday, weather permitting! Stop by and grab what is yours!
Finally- if you have any medication housed in the office, please drop in to pick it up at your convenience.
Have a good weekend all!
Mrs. Erin Walters

PLEASE COMPLETE THIS ASAP - we will be using this for transportation updates and demographics updates for next school year
Attention families, we are asking that all PRIMARY households take a moment to update student information for the 2021-22 school year. This information will be used in place of the information cards usually completed in the fall. It is extremely important that this information is updated before the end of this school year. We are requesting that this be completed by May 28th.
Be sure to update ALL health information - only information shown during this process will be inside your child’s account.
This document will explain how to complete the process. There is also a video posted at the bottom of the document to show you what this process looks like.
Transportation Out of Boundary - For schools of choice or out of boundary students, you must complete this update in order to request transportation for next year. Transportation is not guaranteed for out of boundary students or schools of choice students. Transportation will be first come, first served and based upon availability for out of boundary students.
Secondary Households - we also ask that you update your information. Please see the bottom of the instruction document for information.
