Welcome to K4 at BBS!  We are looking forward to a wonderful school year.  We covet your prayers for your child, for his/her classmates, and his/her teacher this year!  We are thankful for each BBS family!

We need moms who would be willing to run copies for our classes.  Please email your teacher and let her know if you are available.

Please remember to send in a change of clothes in a labeled gallon size bag.

If you send a special snack for your child’s class, please try to send something nutritious and healthy!  Don’t forget to check for any food allergies in your class.

Please use your paper plate when driving through the pick up line.  Thank you so much for your help on this.

Please label your child’s jackets, lunchboxes, sweatshirts and sweaters with his/her name.

If you have not already sent in all of your registration forms, please do so as quickly as possible.

Remember to notify your child’s teacher and the office if there is a change in your phone number, cell number, email or address.  This is for your child’s safety!

Sincerely,

Your K4 team:

•PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE TURNED IN ALL OF YOUR REGISTRATION PAPERS!!!

•Welcome to K5!  Thanks for a great phase-in!  Remember to order your light blue polo shirt for field trips.

•K5 students may go to their classrooms at 8:00. When arriving before 8:00, students must go to early room in the cafeteria.  Our day begins at 8:15.  If your child is not in their classroom by 8:15, they will be considered tardy.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

•Please allow your child to walk to class by themselves in the morning.

•Remember that homework comes back to school on Wednesday in the Tuesday folder.  This also is a good time to include important correspondence.

•A change of clothes is required for your K5 student.  Please send them in a gallon size ziploc bag with your child’s name on it.

•Please have your child’s name in the car window when going through the pick-up line.  If your child is going to ASC, please let your teacher know by attaching a note to their blue bag.

•Even if your child brings lunch on Wednesday, they may still purchase ice cream (.25) or a drink (.50).  We do not get ice cream on any other day.

•Remember in Kindergarten we do not write with all capital letters or start from the bottom.

•Since the weather is so hot and humid, you may want to send a water bottle with your child for recess.  Please make sure your child’s name is on their bottle.

•Tennis shoes are the safest choice for K5 recess.  Remember, they have to wear socks with their shoes.
