H-BC Elementary Parent Connection 

Friday, September 6, 2019 

I had a great week being a Patriot!  We were able to kick off our school year in great fashion!  Ask your son or daughter what they thought of our liftoff this past Tuesday.  Fun was had by all, especially me!  Looking forward to a great school year as the H-BC Elementary Principal!  The Parent Connection is being sent in a new format.  I am hopeful that the new format works with your reading style.

PTO Information and News

Parents are encouraged to participate in the H-BC Elementary Parent Teacher Organization throughout the school year.  Here is a list of current PTO Board Members: Emily Opheim, Vickie Busswitz, Tedra Vos, Laura Leenderts, Amy Knobloch, and Lexi Moore.  Currently, the PTO is selling Big Soo Coupon Books.  The Big Soo Books may be purchased from the Elementary School Office for a cost of $42.  Get yours while they last!

Football Field Game Parking and Students

Reminder:  Students attending home football games may be in one of three locations:  seated on the bleachers, seated around the guide wire of the football field or in an approved vehicle parked around the football field.  Students may not be walking around the football field or playing games.  They are all welcome to attend and watch the game. Thank you for your assistance with making sure your child is in one of these three locations.
