Did you know...

there is a "staff sign out log" in the front office?

Sometimes it is inevitable that you have to leave early or sometimes you just need to run a quick errand during lunch or your conference time. We ask that you please sign out when you need to leave campus as well as notify Mrs. Hager, Mrs. Smith, and Mr. Wood, especially when it involves splitting your classes among your teammates. Why would we ask you to do this? In case of an emergency, we would know where you were.

Box Tops
Our 5th grade BUDS will be coming by each of your classrooms tomorrow morning to collect your box tops. If possible, please have them in a bag ready to be picked up. Thanks for your help with this!

Winter Holidays Slideshow

Jeff's Corner

'Tis the Season...

OK... now that we can feel the holidays within our grasp, (and are we ever glad of that!) our kiddos are often sliding into an area of uncertainty. For some, their safe haven disappears for two weeks; for others, they do not know if they will take a thousand mile trip, or stay inside an apartment during that time. Those who can hardly wait for a wonderful Christmas turkey dinner may sit next to the student who will be happy to have a can of soup on that day. While they look forward to the season, let's do all we can to keep them focused each day while we still have them at Binion.
Please remember Ms. Smith's comments about children who do not celebrate Christmas. We will be certain they have a caring alternative.
Thanks for all the efforts you have exerted thus far this year. You are each the unsung heroes of Time Magazine's "Person of the Year."
