January Bulldog Newsletter Elementary

Brrrrrr!!We’ve got the heat on inside the building but the outside temps have already caused some indoor recesses to occur.We usually go outside but when the temperatures drop below 0 degrees Fahrenheit, we may pull kids inside for recess.Parents and Guardians please dress your child everyday during these cold months with hat, gloves, winter coat, boots and snow-pants (or long johns) just in case they go outside for recess and also in case of an emergency.If you do not have any of these items please call up and let the school know so we can help.

Semester one is almost done and it’s good to take a little inventory during this time. If your student has only missed 4 days of school by January 20th (End of Semester) then they are half way there to meeting the goal of 8 Absences or Less for this year!Thank you for encouraging your child to meet this goal, they will be rewarded not only with recognition but also with time spent learning and developing needed skills.

Heads up and get ready for some intense reading! February is I LOVE TO READ month and Mr. Arlint is going to have a fantastic challenge for the upcoming month.If the goal is met, you may see Mr. Arlint up on the roof spending the night with a good book.Hopefully the weather will have warmed up a bit.More information on this challenge will be coming.

GO BULLDOGS! –Mr. Arlint

Parents and Guardians keep sending those box tops along with Campbell Soup Labels to Mr. Cutler.


The Elementary Winter Program was fun as always, and we would like to offer a ‘thank you’ to the many people who assisted with costumes, decorations, and set up for the performance.A SHOUT-OUT goes to Mr. Tim Krantz, Mrs. Aileen Plant, and Mrs. Kendal Anderson for their professional skills as videographer, costume maker, and music accompanist.The after-school elementary choir will make an appearance at several of the Freshman home games, so if you see them sing, be sure to let them know.


Despite the arctic temperatures, our students are arriving at school on time with positive, enthusiastic New Year of 2017 attitudes!The warmth of our students is fuel for our building, and education of our youth is marching on without skipping a beat!


Youth 2 Youth: Partners 4 Peace is a violence-prevention initiative created by and led by Job Corps students nationwide.
