Bear News - Nov. 6, 2017

PTA Meeting - November
The next PTA Meeting is Tuesday, November 14 at 6:00 p.m. Please make plans to join us!

Immediately following the PTA Meeting is the Book Swap and Character Costume Parade. The Book Swap is so much FUN! Use the form that was sent home to turn in up to 5 books. For every book that your child turns in, he or she can receive a book from the Swap. Fifth Graders swap five minutes before the other grades. Tickets will be sent home the day of the Book Swap. Deadline for turning in books is Monday, November 13. No preschool or activity books – books for ages 6-12 please.

All inventory of Bear Wear will be available for purchase at the PTA meeting. Come with your cash, check or charge!

Free Money
Way to GO, Partners!  We collected over 15,000 Box Tops from August to October.  The top classes for the month of October were:

First Grade -  Mrs. Roy
Second Grade - Mrs. Scoggan
Third Grade  - Ms. Francis
Fourth Grade - Mrs. Marshall
Fifth Grade -  Ms. Forster

Bear Bucks for the months of November, December, and January will be distributed on January 11, 2017.

Specialist Spotlight
This month’s Specialist Spotlight is Mrs. Bonikowski, our talented art teacher. Mrs. Bonikowski has requested colored markers, electric pencil sharpeners (2 or 3), and black sharpies.  Mrs. Bonikowski can also use baby wipes, AA batteries and flash drives. The box to collect the items and the sign-in sheet for students is located in Mrs. Bonikowski’s room.

Special Thanks
Our first month of Specialist Spotlight was a big success for Mrs. Harrison. Thank you to the following students who brought in school supplies for our reading specialist… Jack Leathers, Natalie Ulmet, Zane ??, Sullivan Gamble, Kenneth Laneaux, and Fritz Peifer. The winner of the drawing - a Nancy’s Italian ice and a Bear Buck - is Zane! Unfortunately, we are not sure which Zane this is, but as soon as we figure it out, he will get his reward!

Spirit Night – November
Our next Spirit Night will be at Chappy’s - Peppertree location on Thursday, November 16 from 5:00-8:00 p.m.
