Dear Parents and Guardians,
We really enjoyed seeing many of you during our “Borah Loves Our Families” free coffee surprise and our Borah Loves Reading event. For the month of March, we have a few upcoming events we are excited to announce. The fourth grade students are currently working to get ready for their 4th grade Exhibition, scheduled for March 15th from 5pm to 6:30pm. The evening will start promptly at 5pm in the gym and you will not want to be late. Idaho history and the Iditarod will be the theme on which the evening will be based. Please come cheer on our fourth grade students.
On March 16th, a team of our students will be competing in Math Is Cool at LCHS. Students have been working hard and are excited about the opportunity. Thank you to PTO for helping sponsor their shirts. We are also doing a Hat Day on March 8th where students may pay $1 to wear a hat for the day. Please make sure the hats are school appropriate. If you are interested in knowing more about Math Is Cool, please visit this website: http://www.academicsarecool.com/history.php
We are encouraging staff and students to wear Borah colors or shirts on Fridays. Remind your student to show their school pride and participate!
Please bring an ID when picking up your children so we can keep everyone safe. Also, please do not park in the designated handicap parking area by the front office, even temporarily or when dropping off your student. We have families who require that spot.
Finally, students are not allowed, per district policy, to have cellphones on their person during the school day. Once they enter the building, these need to be turned off and placed in their backpacks for the day. If you need to get ahold of your student during the school hours, please call the office. Thank you for reviewing this with your student if they have a cell phone.
Thank you parents and families for supporting all of our efforts and continuing to encourage your students to do their very best and read at home for extra practice. Happy March!
