A Dash of Salt Podcast
Salt is essential to life; it heals; preserves; and adds flavor to life. I'll share my experiences not only as a principal but my other favorite title, dad.

Note From the PTO
Precious Prints Fundraiser
Order Deadline extended through Nov. 8
Spencer parent, Emily Alford, of Precious Prints is once again offering Spencer families the opportunity to participate in a holiday ornament/magnet fundraiser that will earn Spencer 25% of sales. Because we cannot hold an after school event to create these ornaments as we did last year, Emily is offering "paint your own" kits of ornaments or magnets that kids can create at home. These make great gifts or could be used for art enrichment on a virtual Wednesday. Not only is this a ton of fun for the kids and an opportunity for them to create memorable gifts for loved ones, it is an opportunity to raise some money for the PTO. Please see the flyer for details and sign up information. The order deadline is now November 8.
Spencer's annual food drive benefitting Bountiful Harvest will run November 2 - 30. The grade earning the most food drive points will earn a small prize. Collection boxes are placed and ready for your donations beginning next week. Be sure to label donations with your child's grade. BVA families can donate to the food drive too! If you would like to donate contact Emily at email@example.com to get info on drop off location/time. See flyer for more details on items needed. NO GLASS.
The November PTO meeting will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, November 10 at 7:00 pm. The meeting link will be included in the next Scoop and available on the PTO Facebook page.

Note From the Counselor
Hello from your Elementary Counselor, Mrs McKiddy! I have very much enjoyed our start to a great school year. I spent the month of September visiting classrooms for a social-emotional lesson centered around resiliency and working through challenges. I have also increased visits with individual students needing social-emotional support. I am working hard to add some peer support groups by the end of the month! As the year progresses, I am continuing to connect with classroom teachers for referrals for students who are struggling or may need additional support. If you are noticing some behaviors that are interfering with your child’s success in the classroom, please feel free to complete my parent referral form and we can work together to determine if supports are needed here at school.
We also have our BAS Elementary Counseling website for ideas and resources to be used at home! Please feel free to contact your counselor with any questions or concerns that you may have, and Mrs. Fox or Mrs. McKiddy will do their best to support your child.
