Attendance Awareness: Not only is attendance crucial for learning, but school budgets are also determined by average daily attendance. Minutes and hours are accounted for, which is why tardies are a big deal. KCPS will have an "Attendance Day" on Wed., Sept. 26, where the attendance data will be recorded. It is especially important that all of our students are at school and on time on Count Day. 

Network Outage: KCPS is still recovering from a network outage. Staff email is down. If you need to contact Principal White, please use her Gmail address. If you need to contact a teacher, call the school and leave a message or send a note with your child. 

The Fall Book Fair is scheduled for Oct. 11-18. We'll need lots of volunteers for this event. Even one shift would be helpful. Please sign up HERE if you can help.

Principal's Coffee is on Tues., Oct. 2 at 8:30 a.m. in the teacher's lounge. These are informal meetings hosted by Principal White on the first Tuesday of each month. This is an opportunity for parents to hear about school news and ask questions.

Walk to School Day is Oct. 10. We will be meeting at Brookside Park, on the corner of Brookside Blvd. and 56th Street, by the baseball diamond at 7:40 a.m. Students may wear their spirit wear. Please join us!

Spirit Wear: If you'd like to purchase spirit wear, you can do so HERE. If the website is down, contact Meridith.

BSM School Tours: The first tour is scheduled for the morning of Oct. 30. Call the office to get on the list, 816-418-5150. Online enrollment will begin in early Dec. 

Swope Park Rangers Soccer Game and FUN-draiser: Join fellow BSM families at Children’s Mercy Park for a Swope Park Rangers’ soccer game on Sun., Oct. 14 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $12 with $4 from each ticket going to our PTA. Please buy tickets HERE, and feel free to share it with family and friends! If we get 50 people there, we can go down onto the field for a picture!

Skate Party: Please join us for a fun-filled night at Skate City Shawnee on Wed., Oct. 17th from 6-8 pm! Admission is $5.00 and skate rental is $1.50. You are welcome to bring your own skates/knee and elbow pads. We have no school the following day, due to Parent-Teacher Conferences so bring the whole family and let's have some fun!
