We have specials from 8:15 to 9:00.   You may choose to bring a healthy (non-sticky, non-chocolate) snack with your child as we are the last lunch period.  The first day we will work to provide our students with an understanding of our routines and schedules.  The first few days will not follow our usual schedule due to a need for extra practice and repetition of procedures.
Our regular schedule:  Mrs. Riggs and I will switch our classes immediately, students will come in to their homeroom and immediately unpack, go to their switch class and work on a warm-up while announcements are on, then go to specials.

 Please take note of the following message from the front office staff:  "For the safety of your children,  students will no longer be released in car line without an official Bush  yellow name card displayed.  If anyone comes through the car line without that card, they will be asked to park and come into the front office to show I.D., in order to pick up their child(ren).   We are sorry about the inconvenience this causes, but we need to enforce this policy to ensure the safety of all students.  If you realize, as you enter the car line, that you have forgotten or misplaced your sign, please proceed to the parking lot to walk up to check out your child.  If you carpool or will have someone pick up your child and they do not have your yellow name card, please let the front office know and we will have a card ready for them when they enter the car line. Thank you for your patience with this safety measure.  Extra cards will be available in the front office throughout the year."  

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE NURSE:

Parents who have a child at Bush with food allergies or require special diets need to provide snacks to keep in the classroom throughout the school year for their child.  This will prevent the possibility of a child eating something that could be potentially harmful during classroom parties.

Nurse Cheryl can be contacted at clkirchner@conroeisd.net or 936-709-1609 regarding illnesses or injuries.



      
      Bush Elementary will continue to have PAWS time  this year; M-TH- students will be put into groups and assigned a teacher to reinforce/enrich needed 4th grade skills.  Students will switch classes for instruction and return to their homerooms afterward.  

       We are in need of the following donations: -3X5 & 4x6  note cards-, blue or purple pens,  gallon-sized baggies~!
 
BOOK CLUB INFORMATION:   PLEASE REMIND YOUR STUDENT TO KEEP THEIR BOOK CLUB BOOK IN THEIR ZIPLOCK BAG.   IF A BOOK IS LOST OR DAMAGED, PLEASE REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE OR SEND $5.00 WITH YOUR CHILD TO COVER THE COST OF BUYING A NEW ONE.

**Please send a note or fax  if your child's regular means of transportation changes!** Do NOT send an email - unless you have also faxed something in. Emails are unreliable as to when I receive them.
**Water bottles are welcome to have in class - we prefer the "pop top" kind to help avoid accidents.  Please remind your child to bring reusable bottles home to be washed**

It's all about TX history!   We will begin with a study of the TX symbols.
 TX Symbols - students will get a handout of TX symbols = study for a test on the following Friday!





















    
 Wordmasters:  Bush students will be competing in the National Wordmaster Competition again this year.   Wordmasters is based on analogies using  a given list of 25-30 words per 9 weeks.   We break the list up into manageable vocabulary lists for the students to study and give a  vocab. test weekly.  After we have gone through three weeks of lists, students will complete an analogy test (not "officially" graded) and teachers keep track of scores.  In May, the top scorers from each class will receive recognition.  The top 3 from the grade level will receive an award.
