News from Mrs. Mankin
Dear Bulldog Families,
We hope that you enjoyed some relaxation and family time during fall break. Fall is definitely in full swing as well as our 2nd 9 weeks of school. Students have been learning and growing through the transitions and phases, and we have settled into our adjusted life at school.
Please be sure to have your student dressed for outdoor recess as the weather has become cooler, and we will go outside most days unless there is rain or the temperature "feels like" 15 degrees or cooler. Play is extremely important in the development of the child as well as time spent outdoors.
We are currently in the final week of our GiveButter Playground Fundraiser. 100% of the funds raised through this fundraiser will go directly to the $30,000 matching-fund opportunity through Hamilton Southeastern Schools. If you are able to donate or ask family members or friends to help us reach our goal, we would really appreciate it! We would like to thank those of you who have already helped us as well as the anonymous donor who will match donations made between 10/24 and 10/27 up to a total of $1000.
In addition to our proposal for some new playground equipment, we have several teachers and staff members engaged in student inquiry as well as grant writing to further enhance our outdoor spaces. Please let us know if you have any interest or expertise in gardening, building/carpentry, outdoor learning, or grant writing. We would love to collaborate with you!
As always, thank you for partnering with us in education. Have a great week!
