Dear Families,

Our Homeroom Moms have contacted you about the Classroom Christmas Party on Monday, Dec. 17. We will have a Pizza & Game Day Party. Students may wear PE clothes and bring in games to play with your permission.

BT’s Annual Christmas Program is Thursday, Dec. 13 in the church.  Please arrive no later than 6:45. Students should wear their “Christmas Best”. No jeans, and boys must wear a collared shirt.

EAGLE T-SHIRT DAYS: Dec. 10, Jan. 10, Jan. 22.

Students must wear jeans and sneakers with socks on Eagle t-shirt days. If an Eagle t-shirt day falls on a PE Day, PE Uniforms must be worn in PE class, and students will change on Mondays and Thursdays, as usual. 


Students should take a few minutes each day to practice Multiplication Facts. Our goal is to complete 100 facts in less than 5 minutes. Sing them, write them, practice them….anything to KNOW THEM! There are tons of math fact drill and game websites and free apps available, as well as IXL.


Students are required to read and take a minimum of 3 Accelerated Reader (AR) Tests and corresponding Vocabulary Quizzes (if available…not every book as one.) within his/her assigned reading level range, striving for 80% accuracy, by March 1.  Your student’s Reading Level Range is written in the back of the Planner and is adjusted throughout the school year. Please encourage your student NOT to wait until the last minute to complete this AR requirement. Be sure to check out for book recommendations and AR levels.

Calling All Super Readers! Be on the lookout for Mrs. Atkinson’s Super Hero Readers’ Wall outside the Media Center! Students will be rewarded after successfully scoring 80% or higher on 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or more books this year
