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.
Our students are inspired and prepared to succeed in a global society.
Our mission is to eliminate the opportunity gap and provide every student with the finest 21st century education.
The Booksin community :
will work in partnership to create an environment where children are challenged intellectually and supported socially in ways appropriate to their strengths, needs, and experiences
will provide explicit standards based instruction using 21st century skills (communication, collaboration, critical thinking/ problem solving, creative thinking, and global citizenship)
will align resources to support programs in the school plan that motivate and encourage lifelong learning.
