Bulldog Bulletin - April 7

You are a masterpiece. Make your mark!

What's Happening

Welcome back! I hope everyone was able to relax and enjoy the break in our schedule. I am grateful to have had the time to rest as well as have a few fun adventures with my family. Over break while in the office, I shifted some of my focus on important and exciting planning tasks for the 23-24 school year. There is so much to look forward to as we end the school year and plan for the next!

Announcements 📢

  • If your child chose to participate in the Village of Homewood's Arbor Day Art Bag activity, please have them bring the bag to school to turn-in to their teacher this upcoming week.
  • 5th grade students were asked to create a banner to deck the halls these final weeks of school. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have questions or need assistance. Banners are due 4/24 and we can't wait to see the creativity!

🐾 Stepping Up

Registration for the 23-24 school opens for returning students on Tuesday, April 18th. Your prompt action in completing this task helps so much as we plan for the new school year. Please take a few moments to complete your child's registration on parent portal for the 23-24 school year once it opens.

Stay tuned for more details about informative and fun step-up activities for all rising 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders!

In addition, rising 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade families will soon receive an email with the opportunity to complete a student information form as part of our class placement process. We work hard to ensure that families have a voice in the process and that all students are placed with a "just right" teacher and classroom. Many things are considered when making decisions about class placement and we appreciate your understanding and trust in our collaborative process.

💡 Bulldog Best Reminders

Take a moment before Monday to quiz your child on the 3 Bs - Be Safe. Be Responsible, Be Respectful After spring break is a good time for a reminder of the agreements our school community makes in order to create a safe and joyful place for all to learn.

  • What are the bulldog best behaviors? Have your child name them.
  • What do they look like and sound like? Have your child provide examples/situations.
  • Which behaviors does your child feel they do well and which ones are more difficult for them?
