Hello Scottie Families!

Thank you to our PTO for putting on a great dance party last Friday night!  The place was packed, the music was pumping, and the food was delicious!  We followed up the dance with another amazing community event on Tuesday, our Valentine's Day family lunch, which was a huge success!  What a great turnout, and it was awesome to see the gym and cafeteria full of family members, students, and staff as they enjoyed lunch together.  Our Bonnie Brae family truly shared the love during this special event!

Coming up next week on Friday, we have our February SCA Spirit Day -- Dress Up/Dress Down Day!  Come dressed up to the nines or dressed down and super's your choice!  As always on spirit days, we encourage all to participate by dressing up/dressing down, or wearing Bonnie Brae colors of blue and white!  

We will also hold our next parent coffee on Friday at 8:40 AM in the cafeteria.  Our Math Resource Teacher, Mrs. Cecilia Doan, will lead a conversation around what it means to be fluent in math.  We hope to see you there!

Finally, a reminder that there is no school on Monday in observance of Washington's Birthday and Presidents' Day.  Enjoy your weekend, Scotties!
