BHCS Charter Chatter

November 2019

Big picture

We are pleased to announce that BHCS will have its annual Talent Show on Friday, November 15 at 7:00pm. Preparations are well under way and participation forms are due to homeroom teachers by Friday, November 1, 2019.

All music for talent show acts must be turned in to the school no later than Monday, November 4 so that we have time to burn all music to one CD for the show. Please burn the track to a CD/flash drive with the approximate 2 minutes of music needed for the act. Do not send the music downloaded to a device (ie. phone with it downloaded from iTunes – it will not transfer). If you send in an entire song track, mark the approximate cut time for the music.

Rehearsals for the talent show will be Tuesday, November 12 and Thursday, November 14. Each day practice will be from 3:15 to 4:45. Performers need to be ready to perform at both rehearsals. Students should learn/practice their acts at home so that they are prepared to do a simple run through on stage during the rehearsals. Student performers do need to attend both rehearsals.

ADMISSION WILL BE $5 AT THE DOOR

Thank you for your support and we look forward to a great show!!! Hope to see you there!!!

Colonial Days for 1st and 2nd Grade...

Colonial Days will take place on Monday, November 25 and Tuesday, November 26. Students can dress in their colonial attire and enjoy activities, crafts, and games from colonial times. We invite you to join us for these two exciting and fun filled days of learning! If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering during either or both of these two days, please contact one of the 1st or 2nd grade teachers.

Highlights from Second Grade...

Second graders participated in Mix It Up At Lunch Day on October 22nd. This national campaign encourages students to make new friends by sitting with someone new at lunch. This campaign promotes tolerance, which helps to prevent bullying, and can be celebrated at anytime during the school year.


We are excited to announce that the second grade was also selected to participate in a comprehensive writing and grammar program to help teach foundational literacy skills while developing confident and capable writers.

The WritingCity® Grant Program enables districts to develop and implement a writing curriculum that will increase student achievement and teachers’ effectiveness in the classroom. The grant program incorporates professional development and a full-year writing and grammar curriculum to promote solid foundational literacy and writing skills in students.


Great work 2nd Grade! Keep it up!

Operation Christmas Child Project

November's character trait is "Citizenship" and in an effort to teach our students about supporting their community and country we are participating in the Samaritan's Purse project, known as "Operation Christmas Child." Below are some facts about this project and how it works. We believe this is a project our students will enjoy participating in and it will help them more fully understand the concept of citizenship through giving of their time and resources to children in need.


WHAT IS OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD?

  • The Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child collects shoebox gifts—filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items—and delivers them to children in need around the world. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.
  • Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 168 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories.
  • In 2019, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach another 11 million children in countries like Peru, the Philippines, Rwanda and Ukraine. More than 10.6 million shoebox gifts were collected worldwide in 2018, with more than 8.8 million collected in the U.S.


CONNECTION WITH CITIZENSHIP...

Students are learning "You can demonstrate good citizenship by being a person who is involved in trying to make the community, nation, or world a better place. You can also show good citizenship by considering the needs of others in your community, home, or school."


YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN TWO WAYS:

  1. Send in individual supplies to be put in shoeboxes at school.
  2. Pack a shoebox with your family at home. (You may request a shoebox from your child's teacher.) Follow the steps below.

Each family who participates in this endeavor through sending items or packing a shoebox will receive volunteer hours for the month of November. If you have any questions, please email stacey.hatley@bethelhill.net Please note, shoeboxes and/or items for the shoeboxes are due by Wednesday, November 6. Thank you for your help in promoting citizenship!

Music News...

Music classes are off to an amazing year! The fifth graders kicked the year off with"Disney" and it was... supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!! During October, all classes enjoyed singing the fun Halloween songs and The Witch Doctor has been a hit with the upper grades. Our kindergarten students even learned how to sing "hello" in three languages!

Now, the first graders are gearing up for the holiday program, "The Littlest Reindeer." We hope you can join us for this exciting performance on Tuesday, December 3 at 7:00pm!

World STACK UP...

The World STACK UP will take place on November 14 during student's PE times. Volunteers will be needed to supervise each stacking station and make sure students are staying on task. If you are interested in volunteering for this event please contact Suzanne Beshears at Suzanne.Beshears@bethelhill.net as soon as possible!

Thank you in advance for your support!
