Message from Mrs. Thompson

Dear Bobcat Families,

Next week is National Assistant Principal's Week. I would like to take a moment to thank my assistant principal's, Mrs. Dupre and Mrs. McCoy for all their hard work in helping to make Bush the great school that it is. These two ladies work tirelessly supporting teachers and students every single day, and I am so grateful for them. They do a lot of the behind the scenes work that keeps this school running safely and effectively.

Thank you Mrs. Dupre and Mrs. McCoy for all your hard work!


Mrs. Thompson

  • All students will be tested in both Iowa and CogAT. Students may not take partial tests or skip around.
