Letter Writing Program

We are kicking off a letter/note of encouragement campaign, so that each student on the first day will have a letter to help get them excited about the new school year. The letter can be a short note written by a parent, grandparent, family friend, etc. Letters can be dropped off at the school's front office anytime between now and the first day of school. These notes will be shared with the students by the teacher during a classroom activity on the first day of school. This will help as we work to build a positive classroom and school experience here at BGIS.

Letters should be placed in an envelope and the student's name and grade clearly marked on the outside. There will be designated spots to collect these at the Popsicle/ Playground Event and at Meet the Teacher. Feel free to write these at the event or go ahead and have your note ready to bring by anytime now Mon-Thur 7:30AM-4:00PM.

Thanks, and we are looking forward to a wonderful new school year!
