Mrs. Bush's Barnard Broadcaster "Each person, each day, learning and caring in every way."

Dear Families,

Wow, what a week! With four weeks into school, I can see that routines and schedules are settling in across all K-5 classrooms, which has allowed deep learning to begin to take root. We definitely have blooming authors, avid readers, growing mathematicians, curious historians and scientists and excited musicians. Learning is definitely alive in all classrooms!

As students return to school we know that opens up the opportunity for germs to spread. We thank you in advance for doing your part to help us all stay healthy. If your child is sick and needs to stay home, please make sure you are very specific with symptoms when you call in to report on the absence line. We are still responsible for reporting COVID, so be sure to let us know if your child tested positive for COVID. Covid-19 protocol states that you isolate at home for 5 days (day "0" is day symptoms begin or day test was taken for those without symptoms) and leave isolation if it has been 5 days since symptoms began or 5 days since test date without symptoms, fever free for 24 hours without taking fever-reducing medication, and cough and shortness of breath have improved.

Please be sure to read through all flyers carefully below to stay connected to important events and information across Barnard.

Want to stay connected throughout the week and see pictures of your children in action here at school, please follow me on Instagram @MrsBushTSD.

Have a wonderful weekend with your families!


Mrs. Bush

We have almost reached our third goal of $15,000, and are well on our way to our overall goal of $25,000! We can't do it without the help of all Barnard Families. Your contributions have a tremendous impact on your child's experiences here at Barnard. Just think, if each student raised $100.00, we would raise over $40,000. Amazing!! Thank you in advance for your generous donations!

Calling All Blood Donors! Our country is experiencing a National Blood Shortage and they need your help! Barnard is hosting a blood drive this Wednesday, September 27th from 1--- 7pm.
