Mrs. Walters' News
Dear Bushnell Elementary Families,
We've had a really fun week kicking off March is Reading Month. This first week, we celebrated some of Dr. Seuss' books including Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat in the Hat! Thanks to all the families who helped their child participate in our dress up days! We collected our first round of reading logs and boy did our students read! Next week we will focus on how BOOKS HELP US BE COMPASSIONATE!
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 23rd, 6:00 pm! We'll be having a virtual family fun night complete with a story and art project! Stay tuned for more details.
Our Spring conferences will happen the week of March 15-19 and will again occur virtually. Your child's teacher will reach out with sign up times for you to check in and see all the progress your child has made so far. You will also receive a 2nd trimester report card with more details.
Attention families with incoming kindergarteners!!! Kindergarten enrollment for next fall will open on Monday, February 15th! If you have a student who will turn 5 by September 1st 2021, they can start their school journey! You may also sign a waiver for your child to start school if they turn 5 by December 1st 2021.
