Mrs. Walters' News
Dear Bushnell Elementary Families,
What a snowy week we've had! I hope everyone enjoyed their extra long weekend and snow day! It is so fun looking out my window and watching the kids play on all the snow banks around the blacktop.
March is right around the corner! Traditionally, Bushnell spends the month of March celebrating March is Reading Month! We are excited to share details about what we have planned. Look for a calendar of events along with a letter describing some of the fun things we will be doing to engage your students and promote a lifelong love of books!
Our gym classes are participating in the Kids Heart Challenge once again this year! Information will be coming home soon! See the message below from Mrs. Ludwig, Bushnell gym teacher!
Bushnell is participating in a virtual book fair! Our focus for this book fair is to increase diverse books among our collection at Bushnell as well as at home. We would LOVE a donated book to our library if you are so inclined. Check out the googleclassroom below to get access to the book fair as well as hear our librarian, Mrs. Emelander read the story Love Monster!

Kids Heart Challenge!
Hello Bushnell Families!
We kicked off Kids Heart Challenge last week and I am super excited! During the month of February in gym class we will be learning how nutrition and being active can help us live longer, healthier lives. Our actual Kids Heart Challenge event will take place the last week of February which will include a variety of fun cardio stations during your student's gym class time. Any donations to the American Heart Association will be collected the last week of February.
This year, we are adding a special fun incentive because the kids LOVE Agent KHC.
Any student who raises $100 will receive the limited edition, “Agent KHC”! See secret message: https://youtu.be/q-1tF_cDLoI
