Hello fellow Bobcats! I hope that this post finds you having just as an amazing start to the 2018-2019 school year as I have had! What a wonderful group of young Bobcats we have enrolled at BES this year. We have hit the ground running behind the theme of "Whatever it Takes"! We are going to do whatever it takes to ensure that our students have an amazing year, have the highest of expectations, and have their successes celebrated throughout the year. I would like to welcome the following people to our Bobcat Clowder (family of Bobcats): Jessica Tackett-Brown as our new PE/ART/MUSIC teacher, Brittany Wilson as our new first grade teacher, Kelly Harvey as a new instructional aide, Karen Young as a new instructional aide, Jennifer Roberts as our new instructional coach, and Holly Harper as our new 21st Century Champions site coordinator. Welcome to the Clowder!!!
We have so many new initiatives at Botts Elementary this year but none of them more important than our 21st Century Grant. This grant will provide afterschool tutoring, meals, and transportation for our students everyday afterschool beginning August 27! We are super excited to be given the opportunity to provide even more educational opportunities for our students. We also have the Striving Readers Grant that will provide teachers with best practices and professional learning opportunites to help the overall Literacy Component at Botts Elementary School. Botts Elemetary School will continue this year with the BEAT academy. This is an opportunity for parents and guardians to observe in their child's classroom for a 30 minute period. If this is something that you are interested in, please contact Jessica Hale for sign-up information.
A couple of dates to keep in mind are August 27 (Fall Picture Day), PTO Meeting, and Monday September 3 (Labor Day-No School). Please remember to like our Facebook page and the Menifee County Schools Facebook page for more dates and items to put on your calendar. We are looking forward to a wonderful year and remember we are doing "Whatever it Takes" to make our students successful this school year! WE ARE BOTTS!!!!!
