Parents and Guardians,
Students can wear Halloween costumes to school on Monday, October 31. Booksin School will send more information about costume guidelines and parade. We have special spirit days for students to have fun and to encourage all students to dress up. However, when it is not a spirit day, please do not send your child to school wearing a costume. This is distracting for students. Thank you.

Love and Logic

Booksin is happy to host Love and Logic this school year.  Parents are invited to attend parenting classes which offer great strategies and tips on how to avoid un-winnable power-struggles and arguments, stay calm when your kids do incredibly upsetting things, set enforceable limits, avoid enabling and begin empowering, help your kids learn from mistakes rather than repeating them, raise kids who are family members rather than dictators, and so much more. There are 6 class sessions.  The dates are Sept. 21, Oct. 12, Oct. 19, Nov 9, Nov. 16, and Dec. 7.  All classes will be held in the cafeteria from 2:30pm-4:30pm.  If you are interested please visit the office for the form and return it by Sept. 15.  Space is limited.  A $20 cash or check donation is welcomed for materials.
