PTA Fundraiser - Due November 3rd
Yesterday students were given a packet for the PTA fundraiser titled Memories and Tastes to Treasure.
We will be selling photo keepsake books, calendars, cards, and Southern Living recipe cookie tubs. We encourage students to share these forms with their family. All orders are to be turned in by November 3rd.

Note: The coupons on the front of the cover letter can be returned as they get orders in exchange for more bears (very similar to ducks from Jump Rope for Heart). They can also wait until the very end of the fundraiser to submit their coupons to receive the number of bears they are eligible for. Selling 20 items will get them the entire bear family.
 
Congratulations to our Students of the Month for October!

What I Need (WIN) TIME
We are very excited about some new work we are doing this year. By now, some of you have been hearing your student talk about WIN time.
WIN Time: What I Need (WIN) Time is a great part of our day where every student is getting to work with a caring adult for intervention or enrichment. We know this is so important that this time is established in the master schedule for students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade to receive instruction that is aligned to their instructional level based on the MAP and other appropriate assessments. Students are in a group with other students close in ability level but may be from different grade levels for 45 minutes a day. Monday and Tuesday students receive reading instruction and on Wednesday and Thursday they receive math instruction. Students in WIN groups will work with their teachers to set specific instructional goals. (Fridays will still be devoted to Focus Fridays) Everyone’s progress is monitored. The students may be moved to a different group based on their performance as needed.  
Car Rider Safety Concerns
BPS families who bring your children to school in the mornings-  We need your help! We’ve been asked by WHHS to see if we can solve the following safety issues, (I know we can!):

1. Please do not block the entrance to the WHHS parent/visitor drive.

2. Please be sure to stop before you drive straight across from Bridgeport through the WHHS drive to drop off your “big kids”

3. Please do not drive across and up the WHHS front drive as a way to beat the traffic @ the entry by exiting back out onto Doctor’s Drive there if you are not dropping off WHHS kids. They are sharing that folks who are doing this are moving way too rapidly. This is especially concerning since student drivers have to exit their parents’ vehicles on the same side as where these folks are cutting through.
