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!

Fall, 2014

Dear parents and extended Bixby community,

It is with honor that I get to serve as your new principal. Thank you for the many warm welcoming faces and comments over the summer. Since hearing about my appointment, I have been looking forward to working with all Bixby students, staff and parents. Our partnership will be the foundation for a successful year. 

By way of introduction, I have been in the district for 19 years and have experience at two other schools as principal. I’m looking forward to watching your children grow and learn with the new curriculum; to expand the instructional talents of an already veteran staff; and to learn right alongside the teachers. 

I’d like to share information to start our year off well. First, I’m sure you will welcome an additional (and more efficient) way to update the emergency cards. As usual, emergency cards will be distributed during the first week of school of the year, however, they will have a different look. We will send a printout of your emergency card which you will either 1) revise directly on the new Emergency Card, or 2) update the information online in ParentVUE. If you activated your online Parent Vue account, then you can update your emergency cards without having to write out everything from the year before. Then check the box, "I made changes on ParentVUE," on the Emergency Card.  Either way, return the signed emergency card and return it to the teacher promptly. If you are not already enrolled in Parent Vue, you may do so utilizing the activation codes are also included on the Emergency Card. Throughout the year, as cell phone numbers or contacts change, you may update right on Parent Vue. 

Another fall ritual is to join the PTA and sign up to be a VIPS. There are plenty of service activities at all different levels of involvement, from being a room rep to helping with fundraisers, or helping run the Fall Festival. More hands means less work for all. Best of all, the benefits go straight to our students. Along similar lines, please consider volunteering. The Volunteers in Publics Schools (VIPS) applications are available in the office. I thank you if you have been in PTA or if you are a continuing VIPS in the past and encourage new VIPS. 

 Please remember to read all notes and fliers from the classroom and from the office. Open communication is vital to maintaining a vibrant school setting with learning opportunities. And when you see me on the playground or out and about, feel free to introduce yourself. I look forward to a strong partnership that will strengthen the Bixby learning community. 

Sincerely, 

Mrs. Arroyo
Principal
