8th Grade Field Trip: A Few More Chaperones Needed!
On Friday, April 20th, 8th graders will be going to the University of Washington to participate in the annual Engineering Discovery Days. At Engineering Discovery Days, students and faculty from all UW engineering departments share their work with students, teachers, families and the community. The days feature hands-on activities that demonstrate the exciting work of engineers. We are looking for a few more parent chaperones to attend this event with us.
If you are interested and available to attend with us on Friday, April 20th, from 7:45AM to 2:30PM, please mark the day on your calendar and email Becca Brown and Michele Perry at: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. In your reply, please include your first and last name, your cell phone number, and the first and last name of your child.
If you have not already completed a BSD chaperone/volunteer application, you will need to complete and submit that to the Chinook office as well. These applications take 1-2 weeks to be processed by the district and the approval to work its way back to us, so please be sure to submit it to the Chinook front office as soon as possible.
Candy Board Thank You!
“BIG THANKS” to Gina Datillo for her fantastic candy boards and copious amount of snacks to the staff Thursday morning.
How to Report a Safety or Bullying Concern
Bullying and safety concerns can always be reported to any staff member at your school. The Bellevue School District also utilizes an anonymous reporting tool called SafeSchools Alert through which anyone can make a verbal or written report of harassment, intimidation or bullying, contact a school administrator or any staff member.
Information on how to submit a report via any of these methods is available on the district website at www.bsd405.org/help/report.
