Mrs. Walters' News
Dear Bushnell Elementary Families,
February flew by, didn't it? And now it's on to March and one of my favorite times of the year! Every March we celebrate our love of reading and books with March is Reading month! Today your child will be bringing home a special calendar, a letter explaining some of the unique ways we will celebrate and their first of 4 reading logs. We hope you will celebrate with us! Next week we have a fun week of dressing up to celebrate Dr. Seuss and some of his most recognized books!
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.
Bushnell is participating in a virtual book fair! Our focus for this book fair is to increase diverse books among our collection at Bushnell as well as at home. We would LOVE a donated book to our library if you are so inclined. Check out the googleclassroom below to get access to the book fair as well as hear our librarian, Mrs. Emelander read the story If Kids Ran the World!
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. Paper work required includes proof of residency, original birth certificate, up to date immunizations and a health appraisal. Information can be found on our Lowell Area Schools website here.
