Scottie Tales for the week of May 10

A Note From Your Principal

I hope everyone took time to celebrate all the Mothers and those in your life that are a mother figure to you. I cannot believe we have 19 (in-person) days left of the 2020-2021 school year. Thank you to the entire community to showing an unreal amount of love for our amazing teachers last week. From flowers and handmade cards, to the amazing breakfast our fabulous PTO provided you spoiled our teachers something good!

With all that is going on and changing it is hard to believe we already need to think about the 2021-2022 school year. As the end of this year approaches we are starting preliminary discussions about class groupings for next year and would like your input. Please take a moment to complete the Parent Input Survey give us more insight on your child. Tell us more about the type of learner your child is and the type of learning environment your child thrives in. This information will help us better match your child to one of our amazing teachers. As you fill out the survey, please DO NOT name teachers. Teaching assignments are made to meet the needs of our students and teacher requests will not be honored. The deadline to complete the survey is today by 4PM. 

Lastly, SOL testing for Grades 3-6 is continuing this week. By now, all parents/guardians with children in Grades 3-6 should have received communication with information about testing. If you have questions about testing please contact Assistant Principal Bennink ( For more information and a schedule for the SOL testing window please visit the Bonnie Brae website.

Have a great week, make sure you are taking time to get our kids (and ourselves) unplugged and outside.  

As always, we are going to come out stronger because of each other. Stay safe, take care of yourself and take care of each other.
