Bostian Elementary's Renewal Plan


Service and Leadership Focus

Working to meet needs in our community builds leadership skills and is key to our service focus. Each grade level will survey students/parents for ideas for service projects. Students in each grade level will decide which project to implement.

Each grade will do one project each semester.

The following projects were completed during the 2018-19 school year:

Kindergartners wrote letters to the Levine’s Children’s Hospital patients, learned about the postal system and took a field trip to Landis Post Office.

1st graders invited local veterans to a program in honor of their service to our country.

2nd graders visited a local retirement home and played various board games with residents.

3rd graders created encouragement cards and did writing assignments pertaining to helping others.

4th graders completed the Kindness Challenge and rolled this out school-wide by performing skits to each homeroom. Students signed pledges to be kind to others. Various acts of kindness were recognized throughout the year.

5th graders created appreciation bags for local firefighters and police officers and personally delivered them.

If you know of needs in our community or potential partners for service projects, please contact your child's teacher!

Development of Clubs

The goal of monthly club meetings is to allow students time to focus on their passions and individual interests and gain new skills.

Clubs were selected based on an interest survey of students. Students will have a choice of two different clubs throughout the year (4 times for each club). Clubs will be held Sept. 11, Oct. 15, Nov. 18 , Dec. 18 for first semester. Second semester dates will be set at a later time after we evaluate first semester activities. Each staff member will lead a different club. Times will be 7:45-8:45.

If you are interested in assisting or leading a club, please contact your child's teacher!

Implement Ron Clark’s Essential 55

The Essential 55 will be implemented school-wide. This program focuses on 55 essential rules to be successful in life. All principles will be introduced at the beginning of the year. Posters will be displayed in each classroom. Videos created by students will be used to explain the different principles.
