Election 2020

The Texas primary election is March, 3. Bush Elementary is a polling location. We will provide additional information about what the day will look like at Bush in next week's Bush Banner.


Early voting is underway. We encourage all registered voters to vote in the Texas primary election. Once you vote, help teachers earn a month-long jeans pass for March. Send in your "I Voted" sticker. Once we collect 50 stickers on the voting poster outside Dr. Lambert's office, teachers get to wear jeans in March.

Lunch Time Guests

Please keep in mind that there is limited seating for parents and guests at lunch time. We have four folding tables that are placed out in the gym. Please slide down and make sure to fill in all empty seats at each table. Do not sit with your child at their table, all visitors must stay at the visitor tables. We ask at the end of your children's lunch time (5 mins left) to send your child back to their table. They will walk back to their classroom with their class. This also allows the next set of guests to have seats. Please check-out at the front office by turning in your guest badge. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
