Our field trip is this coming Tuesday, June 4th. HAVE STUDENTS WEAR BLUE BOBCAT TEE-SHIRT! We will be returning to school around 4pm. Please make sure your child knows who will be picking them up! We go rain or shine, so your child needs to be dressed for the weather. Think layers! Our purple shirts are at school and the kids will be putting them on before we leave. Here some field trip packing tips:
* Pack snacks separately from lunch items. Put snack items LAST in your child's backpack so they won't have to dig through everything when it is time to snack on the bus. They will need an AM BUS snack and a PM BUS snack.
* All backpacks and lunchboxes will be tossed (maybe even shoved) into a large bin. Please don't send breakable items! Nothing will stay on the bus. Food items will need protection to prevent from being squished.
* Please do not send your child with a lot of money for the gift shop. $10 or less is plenty, labeled with their name in a plastic baggie. The shop is small and not staffed to handle 100 kids needing to make quick purchases. Many times we don't have time to go in, but sometimes we do. (Many of the items same items can be purchased online for less.)
IF YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR CHILD HOME WITH YOU FROM SQUAM LAKE YOU MUST SUBMIT A NOTE TO ME FIRST THING IN THE MORNING BEFORE WE LOAD THE BUS. I WILL NEED TO DELIVER THESE TO THE OFFICE BEFORE WE LEAVE NBCS. WE CANNOT MAKE THIS CHANGE ONCE WE HAVE LEFT SCHOOL GROUNDS.

The Read A Thon was a huge success! The school library was transformed into sections of the beach, campfire, Harry Potter, etc. where students were able to snuggle up and read for 30 minutes. Our classroom raised $205.00 towards the Read A Thon, which will go right back into our school for Enrichment Programs funded by the PTA. These programs allow for amazing opportunities for each grade level, multiple times a year. So far in second grade, we have been able to enjoy the Eyes of Owls Program back in the late fall. We will have another enrichment opportunity the end of May!
Thank you all who purchased books at the book fair as well. There were some books available to us this year.
NEW NEWS: COMMUNITY WIDE KINDNESS CHALLENGE!
The entire school community is working on a Kindness Challenge. Each teacher has created a Kindness Bulletin Board outside of their classroom. We are promoting positive behaviors and passing out "heart bobcat cards" when acts of kindness are spotted. These hearts will be gathered in the lunch room by the stage and added to our Kindness Tree. There, we will be able to see the many acts of kindness by our entire school taking place. As soon as our tree begins to develop, I will share a picture.
