Bobcat Bulletin March 1, 2023
Keep Going Keep Growing
A MESSAGE FROM MRS. ANDERSON
Dear Bobcat Families:
March is the time of the school year when students often begin to display mastery of new skills!! Many of our students are celebrating growth and improvements this time of year and it’s a pleasure to watch the excitement within our school community.
The month of March also serves as a reminder that there is still work to be done, challenges to tackle, and goals to be accomplished. In order to accomplish our goals, attendance is critical. Please ask your child about the school-wide classroom attendance challenge that they are participating in throughout the next few weeks.
Additionally, as we get ready for our favorite day of the year – Field Day – please consider purchasing your child a Field Day T-Shirt. The order form is included in this bulletin. We invite parents to attend our Field Day and look forward to seeing you. (Siblings are not permitted to attend Field Day).
As always, thank you for your continued support. Please reach out to me with any concerns, comments, or suggestions.
Mrs. Anderson, Principal
As we approach the spring months, now is the time the district begins to plan for the 2023-2024 school year. You are an important stakeholder and your feedback is valuable. Please take the time to fill out the annual Title 1 survey.
Please refer to our Parent- Student Handbook:
It is the parent’s responsibility to call our school office (377-9200) before 8:00 a.m. if a child is not able to attend school for the day. Parents should give the child’s name, teacher’s name, and reason for the absence. If a child is absent with no notification, the school will call the home to confirm the reason for the child’s absence.
DISMISSAL: AT THE END OF THE DAY
Students must leave the school campus immediately upon dismissal. Parents must notify the school in person or by phone of any transportation changes. Students are expected to return home the same way without the parental change. Please inform the office in person by 2:30 pm. of any change in dismissal routine

On the classroom celebration days, refreshments and treats must be store bought. Treats/refreshments are not permitted to be brought into the building for dates other than the four celebrations listed above. Each classroom teacher acknowledges a child’s birthday in various ways. In all cases, children are recognized on their special day. Birthday parties will not be held at school.
To help avoid disruption of activities, we ask that you refrain from having flowers or balloons delivered to your child at school. These items cannot be transported by bus, nor delivered to the classroom during school hours.
