We have a community night with Dion’s Pizza this month.
Please check out the flier for helpful information and turn it in with your order! The class with the most flyers turned in wins a pizza party!!!
As always, volunteers are needed to help set up, run and tear down the book fair. $5 Scholastic Dollars to this book fair will be given to those that sign up and show up to their shift as a sign of gratitude for making this possible. Please sign up using the link below:
We are also setting up a special preview of the Scholastic Book Fair for our Buffalo Trail teachers. We’d like to have some of their favorite treats as they peruse the wonderful books available and need help from the community to make it happen. Check out our sign up and consider helping us out if you can!
During book fairs teachers take the opportunity to add to their classroom libraries. If you’d like to contribute to their classroom library as well, please donate to their Scholastic Book Fair eWallet. You can find their link in this document:
During Teacher Appreciation Week we will be celebrating our teachers in various ways throughout the week including a special lunch. If you’d like to contribute towards their lunch or other special surprises happening that week please donate here:
At Buffalo Trail, we are committed to honoring and recognizing ALL of the different cultures that represent our school. The community enjoys learning about the different customs, food and traditions that we all bring to Buffalo Trail. We would like to continue with the success that we have experienced in the past. We are asking that families in our community sign up to represent their cultural heritage! How can you help? Here are a couple of suggestions!
*Set up a table displaying items unique to your culture (clothing, posters, flags, pictures, etc.)
*Share a dance or a song with the school during the festivities
*Bring a dish that is special to your family to share with the Buffalo Trail community
In order for this night to be a success, we need you to sign up and clearly explain your level of commitment to this event. Feel free to partner with other families in the school community.
Please complete the questionnaire below by May 5th and feel free to send any questions to Mrs. Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the upcoming PTCO General Meeting will be discussing the upcoming changes:
PTCO meetings are the best way to stay in the know of all the school’s happenings. It’s also a great way to participate in your child’s education, ask questions and voice concerns. More people means more ideas and more opportunities to make Buffalo Trail an even better learning experience. Please consider joining us at our next meeting.
Buffalo Trail is asking for help from our community. Positions like paid ParaEduactors, Substitutes, and even crossing guards are available.
If you cannot commit to a paid position’s schedule then please consider donating your time when you can as a volunteer.
No amount of help is too small. There is always a way for you to make an impact in our school and the Buffalo Trail community.
Let us know you want to help and your availability!
Remember that additional time is given and considerations are made in the event of inclement weather. Please do not make unsafe or illegal choices in an effort to beat the regularly scheduled tardy bell. We appreciate your efforts to make Buffalo Trail safer before and after school.
