Happy Sunny Day, Raccoons!!!
Wasn't that a gorgeous weekend!? I hope you had a chance to head outdoors and enjoy the sunshine over the weekend. With nice weather comes a few important reminders.
- Please remember to send a filled water bottle with your student to school. (Tip: Freezing a half-filled bottle with water overnight will help keep the water stay cool all day!)
- It's always a great idea to apply sunscreen to your students right before school. (Students have more skin exposed this time of year and sunburns happen in both cloudy/clear weather.)
- It's also important to always remember to dress appropriately for the weather (in layers), safe for play, and ready to learn.
We also have some important dates & exciting events coming up!

You can complete the form online at www.tinyurl.com/BSDHiCap or get assistance with the referral at the school's main office. Those students referred will be tested in the school building this spring or next fall. Results will be sent home through postal mail to kindergarten families by the end of the school year.
