Badger Bulletin

Volume 2, Issue 17

Badger Family,

Hello! Wow - what a busy week for all! I hope that even though we were all busy that you found time to enjoy the time you had with your students. Please do not forget that we will have our adopted board member, Mr. Dick Elkins, here with us on Tuesday, 1/19, in the library beginning at 10:15. Please find time to stop by and say hello. We also would love to have you enter and/or enjoy some amazing chili during your lunch that day. We will have district judges and there will be prizes! I can't believe that we have now completed our 1st semester of this school year and we will hit the ground running on Tuesday morning. Have a great long weekend!

Badger Business

  • Thank you to all of our teachers that gave up time with our students to participate in the ICLE support strategy day!
  • We will no longer be printing tutorial passes. We have been making 50 or more a day and have been seeing them all over the hallways. If you would like a student to come to your room for morning tutorials, please be sure to give them a pass the day before just to ensure they make it to you. We will still allow students will their grade level pass to attend tutorials. If a student does not have a tutorial pass they will not be allowed passed the crossroads.
  • Donation needed! Please donate your empty International Delight coffee creamer bottles (size 32 oz. only) to Heather Crawford. She will need these by the end of the month for a Club project.
  • The powerpoint from our ICLE strategy day with Ann McMullan as well as the Quad D Question Stems can be found on the OneDrive.
