Booth Free School

September Newsletter

Hello Booth Free Students and Families!

We've had a wonderful start to our 2022-2023 school year. It was great seeing all the students arriving to school on the first day. Whether they were just a ball of excitement or even a little nervous, they all had smiles on their faces within minutes!

During the first few weeks our teachers and students have been focusing on building relationships, establishing routines and expectations, and getting right back into the school routine.

It was wonderful to be able to see our students and meet their parents, grandparents, siblings and family members at the ice cream social. It's definitely one of the staff's favorite events at the start of the school year. So, thank you BFS PTO for hosting such a fun event!

Our BFS staff looks forward to seeing you all next at our Open House on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:00pm. Keep scrolling to see some pictures of our students in action!

We are looking for 100% participation in the Governor's Summer Reading Challenge! Please log in the journal any book you've read or books that have been read aloud to you over the summer!

Click the image below if you need a new copy of the log. Then return the completed log to your classroom teacher. Thank you!

Looking Ahead...
