Posted May 1, 2021
Hold onto your hats, here comes May! A month with so much happening both inside and outside of our regular school day that it always flies right by! We encourage you to read and track all communications over the next several weeks to stay well informed of the many upcoming events and activities. Some of the events include the spring book fair, the PTA used uniform sale, bike to school day, grade level celebrations, a kinder art walk and picnic…… all done outside while social distancing with masks being worn. We are trying to bring back our traditions but obviously they will look a bit different from past years. For additional dates and upcoming events, be sure to access both our school Google calendar as well as the district calendar from the front page of our website.
Special shout out to the 3rd – 5th grade Bill Roberts Shakespeare Club for their participation in the 37th Annual DPS Shakespeare Festival today. Our talented students acted out scenes from Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth. Our virtual performances can be viewed here.
Unfortunately our new bell times were only pushed back only 10 minutes despite everyone’s efforts after the announcement. This is disappointing but please feel free to continue to communicate your thoughts to the district. Our bell times for the 21/22 school year are 7:40 AM-2:40 PM Monday -Thursday and Friday 7:40-12:40. We have not had an exact dismissal time confirmed for Friday but we should end the day around 12:45-1`:00. As soon as we hear from the district we will communicate that exact Friday dismissal time.
Enjoy the spring weekend.

Book Fair is Coming May 10th-14th!
Next month we will host our first-ever OUTDOOR BOOK FAIR at school (weather permitting). Stock up for summer with a book for every family member and help us earn funds for our library. Perhaps your child can kick off our summer Book It Bobcats reading program with a brand new book from the Book Fair!
We need a few volunteers to help families find books and/or run a register (Ms. Cassi will be there to assist). It is a fun and easy volunteering opportunity and it raises money for our library.
Call for all your CLEAN AND GENTLY USED uniforms and spirit wear!
We will have a school uniform donation collection May 3rd-7th. Please drop off gently used clothing in the bin by the front door at school or on the porch at 9900 E 28th Place.
The used uniform sale will be Friday, May 14th on the blacktop from 12:30-3pm.
