Principal's Message

Students and staff were excited to return to hybrid instruction this month. As a reminder to help with student arrival, please remember to complete the AUXS health screening questions by 7:30 AM. The AUXS questions have recently been updated to reflect the recent guidance from the Department of Health.

Today concludes The Great Kindness Challenge week! We hope that this week has encouraged students to do random acts of kindness in and out of school. Part of our STAR principles is always be kind as we recognize the importance of this trait all year long at Bobby's Run Elementary School.
