Welcome Back Bobcats!!

We hope everyone had a fun, safe, and relaxing summer! We know this is going to be another WONDERFUL year at Blades!! You should be receiving your beginning of the school year letter by the end of the week/early next week. It will have a letter from your child’s teacher and other important information.

Our PTO/BBB is hosting a Back to School Block Party on 
Friday, August 3rd from 6-8:30! There will be food trucks, face painting, a bounce house, and more... We hope to see you there!!

There will be a Kindergarten Popsicle Playdate/Curriculum Night on Wednesday, August 8, from 6:00-7:00 P.M. The Kindergarteners will get to visit their classroom, hear about their curriculum, play on the playground, take a quick bus ride, and meet their new Bobcat Family!

This year we are changing up how we approach our Blades Welcome Back Night on 
Monday, August 13. Families will go straight to their student’s classrooms instead of meeting in a common area. We are looking at a more “traditional” open house setup where students will have more time to see their room, meet their teacher, see their friends, and learn the routines of the classroom. Teachers will be providing paper copies of their expectations and routines and/or sharing links to electronic copies of the same material. Once again, we ask that you bring your student’s supplies with you to help make the first morning of school go more smoothly.

Here is the schedule of when you should arrive on Monday, August 13:

- Grades 1 & 2 will go from 
5:00-6:00 pm 

- Grades 3, 4, & 5 will go from 6:30-7:30 pm

The first day of school is Wednesday, August 15, 2018. This will be a full day of school. For our new and Kindergarten parents there will be a Boo Hoo Breakfast in the cafeteria starting at 8:15. Please make sure you can find time to visit, smile, and “wipe away some tears.” It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn about Blades and how you can connect with our community.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office at 467-7300. Thank you for all of your support in making your child’s education a success. Enjoy your last weeks of vacation with your family and friends!

This is going to be a MONSTER of a school year!!

Sincerely,
Dr. Jeremy Booker
