    Dear BHE Families,

    It is hard to believe we have finished 11 days of school! All of the faculty and staff have been working hard to welcome your children, create a warm and caring classroom community, and begin the routines of academics. Last week we came together as a school community through a Committee Meeting. During the meeting, students were reminded of our kindness initiative and watched Kid President’s video – 20 Things We Should Say More Often. You can watch it HERE. Students were also informed that grade 2 through 5 students will have the opportunity to enroll in “Theater School” this fall and put on a production of Annie Jr. We also had a visit from the Bobcat!


    Many teachers have also been implementing Morning Meeting as a classroom community building activity. Students spend time “greeting” one another, so that each child feels welcomed into the classroom environment. Students then participate in a team building, engaging activity. Students also spend time sharing and learning about one another. Lastly, students read a Morning Message that informs them about their upcoming day.


    I have attached a copy of the Back to School Night schedule. There will be a whole group presentation at 6:30, followed by two teacher sessions. Each teacher will present twice, so that if you have more than one child, you can attend more than one session. Please let me know if you have any questions! (Please note – grade 5 will present together in the gym; resource room will only present session 2.)


    I am looking forward to a great year and sharing our school goals with you at Back to School Night. As always, please follow us on Twitter to keep up with all that is Burnet Hill. @BurnetHillElem
