Word From The Woods

Bishop Woods Newsletter 10.24.21

Hello Bishop Woods Family!

As we enter this final week of October, we have some updates to share.


Please be sure to check your email to ensure you are receiving messages from Bishop Woods School. Email will be our main form of communication with parents & guardians this year. If you are not receiving emails, please contact the main office to update your email address in PowerSchool. Main Office: 475-220-7300


Dismissal:


  • We are urging you not to pick your child up early from school. Picking students up early is interfering with the instruction and learning of your child and the other students. Our teachers are teaching up until 2:45. We truly need your support in adhering to this policy so we can best educate your child.
  • Starting Monday, students need to be picked up by 3:05. Students who are still in the building after 3:05, parents will have to park and come to the door to sign your child out.



Healthy Foods:


  • If you send your child to school with a lunch, we encourage you to send them with healthy items. We know that a healthy diet improves cognitive functions, decreases illness, and helps children to concentrate and control their bodies. Visit https://www.myplate.gov/ for more information.
  • During Health, students will be studying the different food groups. We also are very lucky to partner with Food Corps. and they will be talking to students during lunch about making healthy food choices. Please discuss with your child the importance of a healthy diet.
  • Just a reminder no outside breakfast foods are allowed in school.



Multicultural Awareness:


This week Our Multicultural Committee celebrated Italian Heritage month and students participated in a virtual assembly with a presentation by Mrs. Campo. The students were introduced to some common phrases . Videos can be viewed by copying and pasting the link into your browser.
