Principal Jaskot's Weekly Dayette

Principal News  

 This Wednesday (9/12) is our first early release day!  Students are dismissed at 1:10, and staff begin meeting and planning sessions with their colleagues.  The schedule for enrichment classes (PE, Art and Music) is different on these shorter Wednesdays. 

Back to school routines

Thank you for an amazing opening of school!  We appreciate all your efforts in helping things run smoothly for students and staff.  Please continue to park on Fremont Ave N. for drop off and pick-up times. This had made a big difference in traffic for the buses, and there will always be more parking available there.

Please also continue to practice lunch code numbers with your child.  This helps the lunch line move more quickly, especially for our new Kindergarten students.

Students are learning the routines for washing hands, getting lunches and cleaning up their spots as they finish.  As expected, this is a challenging time for Kindergarten, but all students have been given some reminders about how to be “Caring, Engaged and Responsible” at lunch.  They are doing an amazing job!

Playground Position Open

We are looking for a Playground Supervisor to join Ms. Alem and Ms. Sonia Monday – Friday from 11:20 to 12:50 PM on the playground.  In stormy weather this position covers in the classroom and lunchroom areas.  $15.45/hr, no benefits other than the joy of small children.  Please let Mr. Jaskot or Ms. Carrie know if you are interested.

Puyallup Fair Tickets

Free tickets to attend the Washington State Fair are available in the office for children 6 – 18.  Please stop by if you would like one for your child.  The Puyallup goes through September 23rd.  

School supplies 

In case you haven’t heard, we are again asking families for a suggested donation of $40/child to offset the cost of school supplies purchased in bulk by the school. Cash or checks payable to BF Day PTSA can be dropped off at the school in the PTSA mailbox or you can pay online at paypal.me.ptsa Please include your child's (children's) names with your payment. 

This allows us to save a tremendous amount of money and ensures the teachers receive the supplies they need.

  • No running around last-minute finding supplies (saving gas and energy)  
  • You don’t need a supply list  
  • You won’t be inadvertently purchasing supplies that the classroom won’t use  Benefits to the school:   
  • Teachers ensure they receive the supplies they need/require  
  • Lower cost due to bulk ordering  
  • Less 1st day of school supply management  

Family assistance is also available upon request.  Please don’t hesitate to ask.
