Bolivar Road School “The Address for Success” April 2018 Principal’s Monthly Message April is here and as spring gets underway, our scholars continue to work diligently. I truly enjoy watching our children learn as I walk in and out of classrooms each day. I thank our families and our teachers for all they do each day to support our scholars here at Bolivar Road Elementary. New York State Assessments will take place in April, May, and June. Grades 3-4 NYS ELA tests take place on April 11 and April 12. Grades 3-4 NYS Math Tests take place on May 1 and 2. Grade 4 NYS Science Tests take place on May 29, 30, and June 4. We strongly encourage that scholars come to school on time, well rested, and eat a good breakfast, whether that be at home or here at school. We are currently registering scholars for kindergarten. If you have a child who has not been registered yet, please stop into our office and register for the 2018-2019 school year. Kindergarten screening will take place in May. As many of you know, my last day is March 29. I know you will be in good hands with Mrs. Ahlsen for the remainder of the school year. She is elated to be here servicing the Bolivar Road Elementary School community. I will miss you all very much, but will hopefully see you in June when I return to be dunked! Remember to read with your child each night. As the warm weather approaches, please remember that our scholars will be going out on the playground regularly. Sneakers or closed toe shoes are a must. Scholars cannot play near the wood chips with open toed shoes or flip flops. The blacktop can also become very hot, so sneakers are a better choice to keep our scholars safe. Ms. Burgess Bolivar B.E.A.R.S. The character trait for April is: COURAGE The character trait for all year is: CITIZENSHIP (Please go to the Bolivar Webpage to find out more information.)
