September  2013

 

Welcome to Bixby Elementary School.  As always, I look forward to hearing “summer adventure” stories from the children, and the entire Bixby Staff is excited to have all of you join us!  On the first days of school, we meet new little people and smile with the anticipation of finding fun and engaging ways of guiding young minds towards social and academic success. Many wonderful and challenging learning activities are planned for this school year that will include our Guidelines for Success: “I will choose to do my best in THOUGHTS, WORDS, ACTIONS. Our goal is to ensure that the students who attend Bixby get the finest educational opportunities possible.

 

Children are rewarded in a variety of ways for positive behavior and actions that reflect the Guidelines for Success. Each month as a school-wide event, the school will focus on a particular character trait. The trait for September is “responsibility”. Towards the end of the month, a student from each classroom, who has demonstrated use of the trait, will be chosen to receive special recognition at our school-wide Student of the Month Assembly which takes place every first Friday of each month (Call to Order). You are always welcome to join us!

 

Your child’s attendance is extremely important in order to make the best of their educational success at Bixby.  We ask that every student be present at school everyday and that you make doctor appointments after school whenever possible.

 

We welcome to our staff this year: Merideth Joyce - 4th grade, Carolyn Macy - Library Media Asst., Elisa Almazan – Nurse, Sara Frederiksen – Autism Supervisor, and Laura Strand – Instrumental Music. The following additional changes have been made for this year: Ms. Dahl - K/1 combo class, Ms. Stamper - 3rd grade GATE/Excel cluster in room 20, Ms. Picas - 2nd grade, Ms. Gengler - 2nd grade PALS, Mr. Wilkerson - 4/5 GATE/Excel cluster, Mr. Bell - 5th grade College Prep. Miss Burns, School Counselor, will be on campus Wednesday – Friday. Whew! J They are all anxious to start the new school year and would love to have you come by and introduce yourself to them. 

  

Our office staff and administrative team are here to assist you with any questions that you may have about Bixby School. To ensure that our campus is safe, we still require that you sign in and show ID at the front office at all times. The safety of our children is always on our minds.  Please continue to be aware of all city street signs when dropping off or picking up near the alleyway by the kinder classes and Kid’s Club. 

 

The first week of school, your child will be bringing home some important forms and packets of school information, they will include: enrollment cards, bell schedule, dates to remember, information about uniforms, Valet Drop-off procedures, and the allergy form.  Please be sure to look over each form and return the emergency cards and allergy form to their classroom teacher ASAP.

 

I am looking forward to working with all of you this year. Our fabulous PTA is a major source of support for us in many ways.  I hope that you, who have not been involved in the past, will take on this challenge and become an active member of the PTA and an official VIPS.

Together, we can help our students soar!

 

Sincerely, 

Stephanie Jones, Principal

“To Proficiency….and Beyond!”
