Message from the Principal
Happy Wednesday, BIS families,
We are enjoying every day as we wrap up the year at BIS. Our BIS Special Olympians competed last week. Supporting BIS classes came to watch and cheer on their superstar athletes. Yesterday's trip to the Sea Dogs was also a great success. Our students received many compliments from Sea Dogs staff about their outstanding behavior and respect towards other guests and staff. The weather was perfect, and our students and teachers had a blast!
Our students are finishing their NWEA testing this week. Our team has been raffling off prizes and extra recess for students working hard and showing responsibility and perseverance. We are so proud of their dedication during testing.
Thank you for everything you do to support your child's education at BIS.

Current 4th grade students: Rising 5th grade students who would benefit from an academic boost are eligible for Jumpstart supports this summer! In our rising 5th grade program, your child will work towards targeted academic goals with a classroom teacher and interventionist. Students will have opportunities for outside time and fun activities and families will have regular communication from their child's teacher on their activities, progress, and ways to supplement learning at home.
Date: July 5th- July 29th (Monday-Thursday)
If you are interested in learning more about qualification and registration for your 4th grade student, please reach out to Kelsey Langill at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Grade Level Configuration
A Grade Level Configuration Committee has been established with representation inclusive of school board members, district administrators, teachers, and parents. Meetings were held on April 28, May 5 and May 19, where the committee began discussing what grade levels will be housed in each building. Over the coming weeks, the committee will explore multiple options to develop the best plan to meet the needs of our students. Information can be found on the district website by selecting the Grade Level Configuration tab.
