Principal’s Message

Hello Blossom Gulch Families,

This has been a very busy (and wet) week for everyone at Blossom!  Our second grade students spent a considerable time getting wet this week.  Many walked to the pool in the rain, went swimming in the rain, and then walked back to school in the rain.  However, given where we live knowing how to swim is a necessary skill and we appreciate the efforts of the swimming teachers at the Mingus Park Pool.  Thanks!

Our kindergarten students, teachers, parents and volunteers attended the stORytime literacy event at Southwestern.  We were so proud of our students–they did a great job listening to the presenters read stories.  Everyone who attended received a stORytime T-shirt, free book, interactive placemat and lots of other goodies.

Our costume parade and classroom Harvest Parties will be on October 30th.  Please remember that we ask students to bring their costumes to school so they can change into their Halloween costumes after lunch.  We will then have our annual Halloween Parade through the school so everyone can see all the wonderful children.  The students will then return to their classrooms for Harvest Parties.

We respectfully request that all costumes be both school and age appropriate.  We will not tolerate costumes which are violent, or include blood, and guts.  Please do not include scary masks or make-up.

For those who do not wish to participate in this activity, we will provide opt-out activities.  Costume donations will be gladly accepted in the office.

Best wishes,

Linda Vickrey
