MTH EAGLE-EYE NEWS

February 1, 2016

DO YOU HAVE A 4 YEAR-OLD OR A WILL-BE 4 YEAR-OLD AT HOME?

BCSC is changing its pre-school program. We need to know NOW if you are interested in sending your child to pre-k at Mt. Healthy - or to the Johnson Center. We want to be able to offer pre-k to your child Monday - Friday all day next year but need to know the interest NOW. PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION AT THE LINK BELOW.

Pre-K and Kindergarten Enrollment

It is that time of year again. Do you have a student turning 4 by August 1st? Did you know BCSC offers PreK at most of our elementary schools?


Kindergarten Round Up is scheduled to begin the week of March 7th. We will have one evening opportunity to register students turning 5 before August 1st and then registration continues between 9:00 and 2:00 Monday - Friday.


If you have a child you feel would benefit for early Kindergarten enrollment, you can view the application materials online beginning Feb. 1st. The deadline to turn in applications for early Kindergarten enrollment is April 1st. This is only for students younger than 5 by August 1st.

Early Release Forms

Please complete and return this form as soon as possible. In the event we would need to end our school day early, we want to be sure we know where you child is to go.

MATH BOWL TEAM and COMPETITION

On February 25 at Southside Elementary School, our math bowl team, coached by Mrs. Yates, will compete. Our team members are as follows:

Zachary McLean, Kingen Burbrink, Nadia Harris, Walker Savage, Trenton McCain, Andrew McLean, Zackary Bowman, Luke Chandler, Carson Shoup, Emma Long, Grace Barkes, Adah Newman-Stump, Allison Craig, Isabelle Sully, Corbin East, Parker Smith, & Malcolm Stevenson.

ATTENDANCE

Attendance is crucial to your child's academic success. Not only do students win by being involved in every learning experience but they can also win a cool prize. As we told all students, having 100% attendance takes some luck - since we can't control germs - but also takes students and parents being committed to attending school each day. Another attendance competition will be underway for second semester!

YEARBOOK ORDER FORMS

Yearbook order forms should have gone home Monday. They are due back to us by February 12. THANKS!

GROWTH MINDSET

True learning is difficult. We want students to know that it may take awhile to reach the "Eureka" moment - and that's okay! What is NOT OKAY is NOT TRYING.
