Teach News - January 25

This week closes with a fond goodbye to Mrs. Pudlo as she begins new adventures in retirement. Let's make this a great week for her! Mrs. Diana Jones will start as our new 6th grade teacher February 1. All of us are excited to get to know Mrs. Jones.

Open House

Open House and Prospective Parent Meeting has been changed to Wednesday, March 10. Open enrollment for the district is February 23-March 23.

Dental Health Screening

Thursday, February 11, all students in grades 4-6 will be screened for dental health. If you do not wish for your child to be screened, please send a note to the office before this date.

This month we have several great ways that children can get involved to help others:

Change Drive for Haiti

To all the children and parents of Bishop's Peak and Teach Schools: We are doing a collection for the people/children of Haiti. It is called " Children Helping Children With Change." Encourage your children to bring in pennies, nickels, dimes for our collection boxes in their classroom. This money will go to the American Red Cross so that we can help with the medical necessities that are imperative for the Haitian's survival who are so desperately needing Doctors, Nurses, Medical supplies, water and food. Let us help our children to see that every little bit makes a difference and the World can become a more beautiful place for our children's generation. I will pick the change boxes up each Friday and do a tally each week for the duration of our drive. Thank you, Ronni Johnson

Canned Food Drive

Our local food bank continues to have great need for food to feed local families, so we will be continuing our Food Drive. When you do your grocery shopping this week, please consider buying a few extra items to donate. Collection boxes are located in the library and classrooms. Thanks!

Science Fair is coming up!

February 24 is our bi-annual Science Fair. Prepare to be dazzled by the brilliant work of our budding scientists.  The Bishop's Peak PTA would love it if parents will donate baked goods, healthy snacks or juice.  If you would like to bring a snack for the science fair, please give Ronni Johnson a call (439-0125) and let her know what you'll be bringing.

Battle of the Books

This year's Battle of the Books will be Friday, June 4. Students should keep reading the Battle of the Books titles in order to participate!
