HAPPY NEW YEAR
Happy New Year to all of our wonderful Bobcat families! As we begin the year with a staggered return, we recommend paying close attention to state events and correspondence from Benchmark. Secretary Hoffman has recommended a quarantine period of two-weeks, but has allowed schools the flexibility to make their own call. Benchmark's staggered opening covers one of those weeks, but the plan is subject to change. It’s a good idea to have a game plan for both scenarios. Of course, if we hear of anything, we will let you know. Keep an eye out for these dates in the month of January:
JANUARY 4th-JANUARY 8th: Staggered Learning Week
JANUARY 8th: Release of 2nd Quarter Report Cards
JANUARY 15th: EARLY RELEASE at 11:30, NO LUNCH
JANUARY 16th: Benchmark Open House
JANUARY 18th: Martin Luther King Jr. Day. NO SCHOOL
JANUARY 22nd: 100th day of school!
JANUARY 25th: In-house registration for 2021/2022 year
In the month of January, we shift from social studies to science. Sixth grade will transition to science lessons on matter and energy. We will explore the elemental table, learn about atoms, and become familiar with kinetic theory. Thanks again for all of your help and hard work!
