Ranger Report 01/27/23

IB World School

This week, as a school, we practiced being RISK-TAKER by trying new things even it seems hard! Our Spanish phrase of the week was "Puedo ir al baño" which means, Can I go to the bathroom? We encouraged all scholars to practice this phrase throughout the day and even at home.

Mrs. Muehling's Message:

Hi Rangers!

We had a great week at BTE! Students spend time inquiring into their interests, GT scholars attended a field trip and learned about the physics behind roller skating, and so many rangers received rewards for meeting their math and reading goals!

We are looking forward to next week when we will begin celebrating Black History Month! Teachers have already started decorating their classroom doors to prepare for the month-long celebration! There will be special read-alouds throughout the month as well, and we can't wait!

We will also be celebrating the 100th day of school next TUESDAY! See the flyer below for more information and for ideas on how you can have your rangers dress up to participate!

This is a reminder that next Wednesday will have an early dismissal at 11:30am.

Teacher Conferences

We’d like to remind everyone of our teacher’s conference times. If you need to speak to a teacher please feel free to reach out to them during this time or before and after school. To ensure we are meeting all students’ academic and social and emotional needs, teachers are unable to answer calls during their instructional time. Our office staff is also unable to transfer calls during instructional time to ensure disruptions are not occurring. We encourage all our families to be involved in their child’s education and appreciate your support.
