Principal Newsletter

August/September 2015

Welcome back to school! I hope all of you had an excellent summer vacation filled with countless memories. I look forward to hearing stories from the students these first few weeks of school. While the students were gone, the Binion staff has been busy getting the building and classrooms ready for the start of the year. In addition, staff has attended several workshops and trainings.

The first couple weeks of school will be spent setting up routines and expectations. As a school, we will be addressing our CHAMPS expectations and Leader in Me traits and rewarding students who exemplify these traits.

The Binion staff thanks you for entrusting your children with us. We welcome your partnership in their education. I look forward to seeing you all on August 20th for our Meet the Teacher Night at 6:00 p.m.

See you soon!
