Big Lake Elementary Newsletter

SCHOOL INFO FOR YOU

NO SCHOOL FRIDAY & MONDAY, AUG 31 & SEP 3

No school for students or staff on Friday, August 31 and Monday, September 3. Enjoy the 4 day Labor Day weekend. See you back at school on Tuesday.

CHROMEBOOK HEADPHONES

Big Lake Elementary students use Chromebooks (laptops). If you have an extra set of headphones to send to school for your student to use and keep in their desk this would be helpful, this way your student has their own pair and doesn’t need to share with other students.

LIBRARY NEWS

Welcome back to school! I hope everyone got to read a bit this summer!

Students have started checking out books. Kindergarten does not take books home for first quarter as we learn how to treat books, use shelf markers, etc. 1st graders will be bringing home a letter next week to be signed and begin bringing their books home. 2nd grade may check out two books, 3rd three books, 4th four books, and 5th graders may check out up to five books, but must be reasonable to finish reading them within 2 weeks.

If your student has missing books from last year please return them as soon as possible. You may also return any books from other schools here and I can send them to their school.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at open house! Mrs. Gamble
