B.F. Day Event Calendar
Happy Juneteenth! Our new National Holiday✌
Our partnership with the PTSA and all our families has been a saving grace this year. We can never thank you enough for all you have done to help our staff and students thrive this year, in spite of the challenges and pivots. We truly appreciate all the time and efforts, cards, kind words, hugs, and gifts you have given us. It is a joy to finally do some celebrating to wrap up another school year✨
Summer Office Hours
The regular B. F. Day Office will be open thru June 28, 8 – 3:30 daily. We will reopen for Summer Staircase July 6 – July 30, 9:00 to 1:00 but with Summer Staircase staffing. Next year office staff will open for the 2021-22 School Year on August 10, 2021.
Technology Device Returns
Thank you for all the great returns on devices so far!! Way to go😊 If you have not had the opportunity to do so yet please turn in your device next week, unless you’re attending Summer Staircase.
Below is the form we would appreciate each family completing for their device. Paper copies are available in the outside file near the northeast entrance to the playground. More information and forms can be found here:
No need to go to different SPS schools for different children. They can all be returned to one school. We sincerely appreciate all your help with this!
Welcome New Staff
An Update: Please join me in welcoming Jennifer Hogue to the Literacy and Social Studies position in Room 104.
Jenn will join the departmentalized structure of the 4th and 5th grade team and compliment Annalise Strand in teaching Literacy and Social Studies to 2 – 4/5 combination classrooms.
Kenneth Maldonado and Joe Olegario will round out the team – teaching Math and Science to 4 classrooms. This brings full inclusion into the Middle School model for all 4th graders next year.
Jenn comes highly recommended to us from West Woodlands Elementary. She is currently completing her 3rd year of teaching as a 4th grade teacher, deeply invested in teaching students with equity and social justice in mind. She is excited for this opportunity to specialize in 2 subjects and to partner on project-based learning experiences. She has led equity work at WW and she provides a safe space for students to be themselves, which has led to a strong culture of learning.
Our final position to hire will be the Librarian position. This closes on Tuesday, and we will be interviewing sometime next week.
Elementary Progress Reports
The trimester 3 progress reporting period ends June 18. We are happy to print Progress reports as requested. Progress reports will be uploaded to the Source for trimester 3 on July 7, 2021 and parents can see them there. If you would like one printed by the office please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with your preference to pick up or to have it mailed. The office will be open until June 28 as stated above.
