Hello Boggess Families,
It is hard to believe another week has gone by! It has been an interesting and extremely busy week. Our 5th graders used the Solar Ovens they built this week to make S’mores. It was fantastic to see so many students and staff members wearing dots to celebrate Dot Day on Wednesday.
We all know the importance of being on time to school, to work, or to appointments. Students arriving to school with time to spare have the luxury of settling in, preparing their class materials and focusing their minds on the lessons to come. They have all the time they need to literally and figuratively wake up. Showing up on time to school every day can help students develop the habit of being punctual with important commitments. This habit can serve students well through college and into their future careers. Arriving late causes a disruption to the entire class, not just the teacher who has already started teaching the lesson. Thank you so much for making sure all of our Boggess Bengals have a great start to each day. Classes begin promptly at 7:40.
All of our Bengals have the opportunity to submit entries in the Kind Card, Fire Prevention Poster Contest, and the Reflections Contest. Please be sure to look for information and fliers.
Picture Day is Monday, September 27th. Fliers regarding pictures and State Fair ticket should have come home in this week’s Thursday folders.
Please join me in wishing Mrs. Cole, our Boggess CTA, the very best as she begins a new adventure. Mrs. Cole has been a Boggess staff member for the last 12 years. Prior to joining the staff Mrs. Cole was a parent volunteer for six years. We are so sad to see her go but are wishing her the very best!
As we continue to navigate Covid protocols to try keep everyone safe and healthy, I just want to remind parents of the following:

Dear Boggess Families,

If your child is going to be late, absent, or out of town please call the main school phone
469-752-4000 and choose option #3. (Remember to send a doctor’s note when you child is late because of an appointment.) It’s important that we know this information before the day begins, so we can locate missing children as soon as possible. The safety of the children is our utmost priority!
