WVGSA Testing for 3rd - 5th Grades

Our students did a FABULOUS job!

We are proud of the effort they put forth and their determination to do their best!!

We celebrated with strawberry shortcake and will go to the Wildlife Center on Monday!!

3:15 Friday Fire Drill

Thank you to all of our parents for their patience on Friday evening when the fire drill went off unexpectedly at 3:15 p.m.

Our teachers were wonderful in getting the students out of the building and safely away from all the traffic!

Our parents were very patient as we changed the pickup plan! We appreciate you!!!

The problem was a station was accidentally pulled!!

Thank you for always helping us keep our students safe!!

Some Students Came Home Without Backpacks

Students who left on early 22, SYC, or parent pickup today, came without their backpacks due to the 3:15 unexpected fire drill.

We apologize, but it was best to keep students stationary once they crossed all the traffic. :)

Coming Soon!!

Watch our Facebook page this weekend for a picture overload of our PK - 2nd graders at the WV Wildlife Center today.

Kindergarten Visit to WV Wildlife Center

Since our kindergarten class missed the field trip today, we have scheduled a visit on June 3 at 4:00 p.m.

We ask our K families to meet us there. Mrs. Tenney will tour the exhibits with the students and we will celebrate K at the end with ice cream sundaes and recognition certificates.

We are so glad they get to attend for the last day of school!

The bus drivers also appreciate our parents not being in the loop during the AM drop off times.

Pool Party for Grades 3 - 5 to Celebrate Hard Work on the WVGSA

Swimming Party!!!!!!!

To celebrate the hard work and superb effort of our 3rd – 5th graders on the end of the year WVGSA (WV General Summative Assessment) sessions, we are having a swimming party at the Upshur County Recreational Park swimming pool on May 27, 2020. We will depart school at 9:30 a.m. and return at 2:20 p.m.

Students will be provided with a school packed lunch, but may also bring items of their choice.

Students must put forth their best effort on all sessions of the WVGSA in order to attend. Please remember the pool has been rented for a private party and will not be open to the public that day.

We ask that children wear their bathing suits under their clothes on May 27 in order to maximize the time for swimming. Also, students need to bring their own towel and sunscreen. Adults will be available to assist your child with applying sunscreen.

While we cannot transport parents on the bus for this activity, we would like to invite parents to meet us at BUHS to assist with the activity.

To help us keep the children safe at this activity, we do need to know if your child is able to swim. Students who cannot swim will be kept in the shallow section of the pool.

Please complete the form using the link or QR code below.
