October 12 - 15: Stomp Out Bullying!

October 12 - 15 is a week with a focus on bullying prevention. BBIS will be promoting the anti-bullying week by providing a specific program through PE indicating:

  • what bullying is
  • what bullying is not
  • tips on how to prevent bullying
  • tips on how to intervene
  • tips on how to get help


Additionally, we will encourage all students participate in the following themed days to show their heightened awareness and desire to "Stomp Out Bullying".

  • Tuesday, 10/12: Stomp Out Bullying (wear your boots and jeans)
  • Wednesday, 10/13: Have the COURAGE to stomp out bullying! (wear orange)

Attendance Matters!

Attending school has a huge impact on student success. This year we want to make sure every student misses no more than 9 days of school, or 1 day a month. We need your help.


Some Attendance Tips to Promote Student Learning:

  • Make sure your students keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine so they are rested and alert when they get to school.

  • Turn off all electronics including TVs, phones and tablets at bedtime.

  • Make sure clothes and pack backpacks are ready the night before.

  • Check with our school nurse or office staff if you are not sure about when to keep your child at home due to illness.

  • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.

  • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your student feel anxious about going to school.

  • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your student to school.
