Login information for Friday’s PAG meeting, Scholastic Online Book Fair Information, Spring School Photos, and a Virtual Winter Festival

November 17, 2020

Dear families,

I hope you enjoyed a nice weekend, and today we are sharing information regarding this Friday’s Parent Advisory Group Meeting, our current Scholastic Online Book Fair, School Photos, and a modified Winter Festival celebration.

  • Winter Festival (Virtual Audience): We are very pleased to announce that Milestones will offer a modified version (consistent with health and safety guidance) of our annual Winter Festival tradition this school year. For those who are new to Milestones, each year we host a celebration for students and families when students can sign up to show off their talents and spirit through singing, dancing, playing instruments, comedy, and performing their favorite activities. This event typically takes place in December, but we are going to offer it later this winter (early 2021) to ensure that our students have sufficient onsite opportunities to practice. Please stay tuned for more information about this special event.
  • School Photos This Spring: Milestones will offer onsite school photos for staff and students this school year in the spring. Photos will take place outdoors, and we will circulate additional information to families as we approach the spring months.
  • Online Scholastic Book Fair Begins Today Through November 30th: Our Scholastic Online Book Fair begins today, November 17th! Our fair has over 6,000 products including award-winning books, boxed-sets, best sellers and more! This is a perfect time to shop for holiday gifts AND support our school! All purchases earn funds for our school’s reading department to help us expand our school and classroom libraries. Free shipping is available for all book-only orders over $25, and orders ship directly to your home. To participate in our fair, please visit: www.scholastic.com/bf/bulldogs
  • First Parent Advisory Group Virtual Meeting (this Friday, 11/20/20 from 10:00 – 11:30am): All parents and guardians are invited to join us this upcoming Friday morning for our first Parent Advisory Group virtual meeting. The meeting will include a training for parents on the topic of Executive Functioning followed by time for parents/guardians to meet with members of our administration and team.
