Dear William Bryant Families,
We are fast approaching the end of 1st quarter. The year is in full swing and so much learning is going on here at WBE. This month we will be starting our building wide leadership roles with our 3rd through 5th grade students. We feel this is a great opportunity to establish ownership within our building. Schools that have implemented leadership roles within their buildings have reported fewer discipline problems and enhanced academics.
William Bryant continues to impress me with all the great students we have walking our hallways. Each month we will be recognizing a student in each classroom that has displayed the qualities of a “Super Great Bobcat.” The characteristic we were looking for during the month of September was “Leadership.” Those students were listed in our newsletter that went home on Friday, September 27th and will be recognized at our October PTA meeting along with our October students. We will be looking for those that display the characteristic of “Respectfulness” during the month of October.
Grandparents’/Special Friends’ Day will be Friday, October 4th. We are looking forward to sharing a portion of our school day with some of the special people in our lives. Information regarding this event has already gone home with your child. PTA is planning on taking pictures this year as our special friends missed this opportunity last year. It will cost $2 for a picture and it is cash only so you might want to relay that on to those that will be visiting with us this year. We will also be providing a shuttle from the church parking lot again this year so tell your special people not to worry about parking.
Thanks for all you do every day to make WBE the best place to be!
P.S. Here’s a quote we could all live by written by Stephen Covey, “How you treat the one reveals how you regard the many, because everyone is ultimately a one.”
