Bear Den Update

A September to Remember!

Back-to-School Update:

Hello Bear Families! Week 2 is over and it was amazing! I had so much fun meeting all of your children and establishing a community feeling in our den. I will be sending out newsletters to give you an update on everything that is happening with your child at Bon Air Elementary.

What We've Been Up to:

As the jitters are wearing off, we have been concentrating on establishing rules and routines, developing friendships, and weaving in bits of our leadership program, the "7 Habits/Leader in Me" program. We have established our Bear Den mission statement together: "I will use my brain to LEARN, my ears to LISTEN, my heart to LOVE and my feet to LEAD."

Your child has been growing in their ability to communicate and learn each day and I am excited to watch their progress throughout the year. You will learn the specifics of their school day when you attend Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 28th at 6:30 p.m.
