ATTENTION STUDENTS!

There are no virtual reality headsets allowed on campus. Also, please remember that cell phones and other electronics are to remain off and out of sight at all times from the time the first passing bell rings until the school day is over. During these hours, smart watches can only be used to tell time, not to make phone calls or perform other functions.

READER BOARD DONATIONS REQUESTED!

Donations are requested for an electronic reader board! As part of our ongoing modernization this new, 21st century technology will be a wonderful addition to the front of school. One of our school goals is to improve parent and community communication. This new reader board would be instrumental in helping us inform our parents and community of the many events and positive activities our students and school are involved in. Our PTA is spearheading this project and we greatly appreciate your support!

If you would like to donate on-line, please go here to do so: http://www.gofundme.com/msrv9s , otherwise, please make donation checks out to Bidwell PTA with a reference to the reader board.
