Attention Fifth Grade Parents
Hello 5th Grade Families!
It’s hard to believe that we are already talking about the end of the year but some planning is needed! As part of the end-of-year gift, for our fifth grade class, they will be given a school t-shirt. The shirts will be able to be used for gym next year at the middle school.
We need all the children’s shirt sizes. If you could please complete the form with the needed information, that would be great! We are asking to have the forms filled out by Monday April 3rd, end of day. We need to get the shirts ordered so we can have them in time. If responses aren’t received, we will order shirts in the most popular sizes. All 5th graders will get a shirt.

Each year we work diligently to determine student placements for the following school year. Since we consider the placement process to be one of our most important tasks, we would like to share the process with you. Student placement is determined and reviewed by a team of professionals consisting of your child’s present teacher, reading specialist, guidance counselor, and the principal. Additional personnel, such as the remediation teacher and special education teachers, are consulted when appropriate. Each child’s academic, social and emotional growth and needs are discussed as well as peer relations. We strive to create classes that are heterogeneous, function as cohesive groups, and provide each child with an educational environment that will meet his or her needs. We feel our time is well spent because we also have a personal investment in each child.
In view of the time and consideration taken in the placement of your child, we request that you do not ask for a specific teacher placement. Should your child need special consideration, such as a specific type of learning environment or you wish to share information about your child’s specific needs, please write the principal a letter stating those areas that should be taken into consideration when making next year’s placement. Any written request of this nature must be submitted by April 14th. Letters that include specific teacher names and/or are received after April 14th will be returned. No requests will be considered after this date. We ask that you respect our professional judgment and be assured that we strive to make the best possible match for your child.
Art Show/Book Fair
On Wednesday, April 19th, we invite you to see all of the amazing art work our students have done this year. You are also welcome to shop at our spring book fair! Our school will be open from 5:30-7:45 PM. We hope to see you there!

LOST and FOUND
If you are planning to move out of our school attendance area for the next school year, please notify the school office at this time. This information will be most important as we make preparations for next school year.
Also, if you or anyone you know are planning to enroll a new student in any grade for the 2023-2024 school year, please notify the school office at this time.
Bus Deviations for 2023-2024
Please remember that if you wish to request permission for your child to ride a bus or use a bus stop other than the one assigned based on your residence, the school office will need your completed bus deviation form by July 1, 2023. These requests are approved on a space available basis and require four days before becoming effective. If you wait until the start of the 2023-2024 school year to request a bus deviation, there will be delays and possible denial due to the unavailability of space on the bus requested. Also, please remember that the district policy regarding bus deviations does not permit more than one pick up or drop off location. Bus deviations must be requested each year.

Below you will find information regarding health room procedures. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the health room nurses at 610-473-1770.
Attention 2nd grade parents: The State of Pennsylvania REQUIRES each child to have a dental examination for 3rd grade. If your child is currently in 2nd grade, your dental examination forms are due by the start of the 2023-2024 school year. An examination is considered acceptable if it was completed on September 1, 2022, or later. Please return the completed dental examination forms by emailing to email@example.com or by faxing it to 610-754-8349. Blank dental forms can be obtained from the BASD website. From the BASD homepage, click on Health Services then scroll down and choose Family Dental Form.
Spring is here and that means allergy season is here. If your child needs to take medication while at school to help with his/her allergies, refer to the BASD medication policy. All prescribed and over-the-counter medications require a completed medication authorization form which includes written authorization from a physician, as well as written permission from a parent/guardian. Once all paperwork is completed and sent to the health room, please call 610-473-1770 to schedule an appointment to drop off the medication. Please note, medication must be brought to school in the original container. Medication authorization forms can be obtained from the BASD website. From the BASD homepage, click on Health Services. Then scroll down and choose Medication Authorization Form.
Change of Clothing
Please keep a change of clothing in your child’s backpack. Clothing can become soiled due to a bathroom accident, fall outside in the mud, or because of spilling food/drink. The health room may not have appropriately sized clothing, so if your child does have an accident of any sort, a parent will be called to bring clothing in for the child.
