March 15: Kindness Wednesday

Every Wednesday, we are encouraging everyone to wear a kindness shirt or button to spread Kindness at our school! Let's all work together to Bee Kind!

In March we are learning about Cooperation. Students who showcase Cooperation will be recognized on Kindness Wednesdays and serve on our Bee Kind squad! The Bee Kind Squad will cheer their classmates out of their classes with foam fingers and high-fives!

Bees Bucks!

We are also starting bees bucks this week and will focus on a specific Bee expectation for two weeks. March 6-March 17 will focus on being respectful. Anytime students are caught being respectful they can earn a Bee Buck. Students will take Bee Buck to homeroom classroom and put it in their bee box. At the end of the week Dr. E will draw names from all bee bucks collected and the winners will be given the opportunity to select a prize on Monday mornings.

School Sign-out Procedures

If you need to sign-out a student during the school day, please be aware of the following procedures that keep your student safe at school:


Any students being picked up early must be signed out by a relative / adult that is listed in Infinite Campus. Parent's can list adults allowed to pick-up their student in the Parent Portal. If an unlisted adult needs to pick up a student, the listed Guardian MUST call the school office at 614-365-5923.


If your student has a doctor’s appointment after 3:00 or you just want to pick them up early, please sign them out BEFORE 3:00pm. This will prevent the interruption of the teaching process. Students are dismissed at 3:30, but teaching continues up until that time. We appreciate your concern for your students continued and uninterrupted education. We thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

School Absences

If your student is absent, you can email the school to notify us. You can attach and send doctor's notes as well. This will keep your student's attendance as accurate and current as possible. The email is attendance.burroughs@columbus.k12.oh.us
