Daily Affirmation

This day has been given to me, fresh and new.
I can learn from it, or throw it away.
I will choose to do my best in thoughts, words, and actions.
This day will be used, not lost.
That’s the Bixby way!

Greetings to all Bixby families,

We completed our first full week of school and teachers, office staff, and the support staff want to thank you for helping us make this a smooth opening. We are full in almost every classroom across the school. Student learning is beginning to hit that productive hum as teachers get into the meat of the Common Core lessons.

 

Let me take advantage of the quiet morning to share with you information. Teachers are busy lesson planning in grade level groups to leverage their professional expertise. We are always working toward continuous improvement. We will have solid math and English lessons that will complement music. This year our music program has expanded with additional time. Please join me in welcoming our new instrumental music teacher, Mrs. Arnold. Teachers will round out the rigors of the Common Core with art lessons on daVinci, Hopper, Bonheur and Chagall. Ongoing activities include BASE (Bixby After School Enrichment) clubs after school, sponsored by our marvelous PTA. Family Fun Night on October 10 and Harvest Festival (later in October) are also sponsored by PTA. I encourage you to send in a PTA membership for each member of your family, if you can. PTA will even take membership for grandparents and neighbors!

 

Bixby is a safe and positive environment for your children. We recognize selected students who demonstrate outstanding character traits. These recognitions (with photo opportunities) will be held monthly before school on Fridays. We also have various emergency drills and lessons on anti-bullying. WRAP and Kids Club are here to help families with childcare needs. Our playground is supervised until 3:30 for children not enrolled in either WRAP or Kids Club. Drop off your children no earlier than 7:30 and pick up by 3:30.  Traffic is congested in the morning so please plan ahead. Remember to drop off children at the gates, as opposed to in the parking lot. By late September, our Counselor, Ms. Burns will kick off “valet parking” along Stanbridge Ave. (Ms. Burns is always looking for parents who can commit to helping her.) These safety precautions are designed for the safety of all, and your cooperation is appreciated in advance.

 

Bixby will continue with the tradition of morning assemblies once per week. This will include the pledge of allegiance, the daily affirmation and the Bixby song. I encourage you to help your child memorize these so they can participate in the morning assembly. Please note, that we will have morning assemblies on MONDAYS to accommodate the various demands on the teachers’ schedule. I invite parents, grandparents and others to join us for our brief Monday morning assemblies.

 

Details are coming soon about Back to School Night, scheduled for Tuesday, September 23. Keep checking students’ backpacks for fliers and notes from teachers. Thank you all for supporting Bixby. As partners we can celebrate what’s right and build upon it.

 

Warmly,

 

 

 

Rosana Madrid-Arroyo

Principal
