Boals Anchor

Where our future is anchored in learning!

School News

Dear Boals’ Families,


We’re excited to kick off the Boosterthon Fun Run 9-day program at Boals next week! Our Boosterthon Pep Rally will be on Monday, September 19th at 2:00 in the cafeteria. The Fun Run will be on Wednesday, September 28. K-1 will run at 8:30; 2-3 will run at 9:30; and 4-5 will run at 10:30. 4th and 5th grade students will have a Color Run at their assigned time. We encourage all 4th and 5th grade students to bring a change of clothes and shoes to change into after the run. After the Pep Rally, families will have time to get pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run.


Our students will experience an amazing character theme, BACKYARD BOX OFFICE! It’s a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five “Character Acts” and make a difference in our community.


The goal of the Boosterthon Fun Run is to raise funds while teaching our kids about the importance of Fitness, Leadership, and Character. Our goal is to raise $33,000 for curriculum and technology needs on campus and we need your help to connect your child to sponsors! We are very excited to have the Boosterthon Fun Run Team on campus, as they will be adding value in so many ways to our students and school!


Proud Principal,

Curriculum Night will provide parents with an in depth look at what your children will be learning this year and how parents can help support their children at home.

Carpool Safety Reminders

Thank you parents for helping us ensure the safety of your child for arrival and dismissal. We appreciate everyone waiting patiently and courteously during the process.


Here are just a few safety reminders:



• Vehicles may not be left unattended in the carpool lanes, bus lane or by the dumpsters.


• Please do not get out of your vehicle in traffic lanes to converse with other parents or staff members during our peak traffic times.


• Students may not cross lanes of traffic. All students must be loaded off of a curb or walked to the car by a teacher.


• If you are picking up a child in a carpool lane, please form two lines. Also, when possible, please move up with the flow of traffic. For safety reasons, we do not want cars entering the carpool lane and pulling in front of other cars.


• If for any reasons you need to enter the building, please park in the parking lot on the westside of the building. We also ask that you go through the office and pick-up a visitor’s sticker.


• If you are picking up both older and younger children in the carpool lane, the older child will pick up the younger child and take them to be dismissed with the older child’s class.


• Important: Please do not block cars from moving up in the carpool lane. Safety is our

number one priority and we need everyone’s help in providing a safe environment for our students.

Notes from Nurse Olson

Hello Boals Parents,


Since it’s the beginning of the school year, I wanted to take a minute to remind you all of the FISD Medication Policy. Please remember that ALL medications must be given to me and kept in the clinic. Do not send your child to school with medication {this includes cough drops} to self-administer.


Before I can administer any medication to your child, you must complete and return a Request for Administration of Medication form to me. I am not able to accept an email or written note to give medication to your child. You can find this form on the “Printable Forms for All Medications and Medical Conditions” page of my website. A link to my website is provided below for your convenience.


Frisco ISD does not provide medications {Tylenol, Motrin, cough drops, etc.} for me to keep on hand in the clinic. You will have to provide any medications that you would like to have available to your child during the school day. Please note that FISD also has a strict policy on supplement use during the school day. Any approved supplements must also be kept in the clinic and administered by the nurse. Please contact me if you have questions about this.


All medications must be in their original container. All prescription medications must have a prescription label attached to them. No expired medication will be administered.

Please follow this link to the FISD Medical Services page for more specific information:

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I’m always happy to help!


Sincerely,

Counselor's News

Parents,

College/career week is next week. What a great opportunity for you to tell your students about your job and career path. Explain the training (College, Trade school, or apprenticeship) you went through to be where you are and how Elementary set the foundation of your learning. Don’t be afraid to discuss challenges you’ve had getting to where you are. We are focusing this month on growth mindset; how we are not “stamped” smart or not smart…. Good at math or not good at math. We all have the ability to strengthen our skills, push through when it’s not easy, learn from mistakes and try again using a different method.
