Pajama Day - with School Colors Tomorrow
Students and teachers may wear their pajamas to school tomorrow. And this month, participants can chose to wear our school colors (blue and white) instead of or in addition to their PJs.
Everyone can get in on the fun. Those who chose to may send in a monetary donation to support entertaining and educational events like Literature Night and Field Day. The class with the most donations wins an end of year pizza party.
Top classes so far:
- Ms. Witz $326.40
- Ms. Musacchio $210.16
- Ms. Rotolo $122
Please remind your children to wear regular shoes (no slippers) and leave their stuffed animals at home. They may be wearing pajamas, but it's still a normal day of school activities.

Thanks to all the Box Tops you turned in, our school received a check in December for $1,104.40! Please keep the Box Tops coming in!

Parents are encouraged to check with their teachers periodically to find out what classroom supplies they may need. Feel free to share the need in the PTA's Facebook group so other parents can help, too.
Here are some of the recent requests:
- Mrs. Albert would like wrapping paper tubes for a rain stick project. Please drop donations off in the school office labeled with the Mrs. Albert's name.
- Many classes are in need of headphones and ear buds. Please drop donations off in the school office.

Please bring in your jeans to your homeroom teacher or directly to Room 5 (Mrs. Jang/Woo’s room) by Thursday, January 28.
Let’s see which class can collect the most jeans.
BCPS Summer Visual Arts Enrichment Camp
This two-week program provides students entering 3rd through 5th grade with opportunities to explore a theme through a variety of art materials as they learn about the work of various artists.
