A message from the PTA and the Art room: It is time to kick off our Square 1 Art fundraiser. Parents, your child’s Square 1 catalog and free stickers arrived last week. Should you wish to purchase a customized item with your child’s art, click here for the website.  Thank you for your support.

Lost and Found:  Our lost and found is starting to overflow with jackets, water bottles, and more.  If your child is missing any items, please have them check our lost and found.

Grandparent’s Day:  Grandparent’s Day will be held on Friday, November 22nd.  Click here for the schedule and RSVP form. All visitors will be required to sign-in through the Raptor system.  If your child’s guest has previously signed in through the Raptor system at our school, please put their full name on the RSVP form, and we can sign them in ahead of time.  If your child’s guest has not previously signed in through our Raptor system and they wish to do so ahead of time to avoid the line on the 22nd, they may come to school anytime during regular school hours.  If your child’s guest needs to sign in through the Raptor system on the 22nd, please have them arrive early, as there may be a line for this check-in system.

Watch DOGS:  If any fathers or father-figures would like to volunteer to spend a day volunteering in our school, please click here for the registration link to sign up.  If you would like to purchase a Watch DOGS t-shirt to wear when you volunteer, please click here.

College and Career Week:  We will be celebrating college and career week at Bon Air Elementary School the week of November 18th.  We are planning special activities for the week such as staff sharing career pathways and previous jobs they’ve held, leading morning meeting discussions about what students might want to do for a future career, and special dress up days.  On Tuesday 11/19, students may wear their favorite college colors or shirt; on Thursday 11/21, students may participate in a career dress up day (dress up as someone in a specific career); and Friday 11/22 is dress for success day (dress up for school).

School Hours for Parent-Teacher Conference Days:  Our school will be open for parent-teacher conferences on Monday, November 25th from 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM, and our school office hours will be the same.  Please note that the office will not be open at other times during the day on Monday, November 25th.
