Principal's Message

Thank you all who were able to meet with us for Parent/Teacher conferences! Also, we want to thank those of you who were signed up for a Wednesday conference for working with your child's teacher to reschedule.

A note from Zach: if you have old bath towels or hand towels you are looking to get rid of, we will take them at GRE! Our supply is dwindling so we welcome any donations.

Would you like to know more about the BOBCAT BUCKS students earn and what they do with them?? Here you go!

At the monthly Bobcat Shop students can spend the Bobcat Bucks they have earned. Prices vary per grade level but the tiers are structured the same. Listed from lowest to highest, here are the things students can choose to purchase:

  • Candy, pencil, fun eraser, sticker

  • A pass to bring a stuffed animal from home, not wear shoes all day, or be the line leader all day long

  • A pass to have an extra 5 minutes of recess, or bring something from home to show the class

  • A pass to read to a grade younger than yours, or help a teacher for 20 minutes

  • A pass to become principal's assistant for 20 minutes, or eat with a friend in Mrs. Ricker's office, or eat with 3 other friends in the art room

  • A pass for your whole class to eat in the art room instead of the cafeteria

  • A pass for the quarterly special event that has either been decorating donuts, working with makers space materials, or open gym time.
