This has been a busy month at Badger. I wanted to thank you for your participation in the first ever virtual component Parent/Teacher conferences. This is not our preferred method of meeting but, given the circumstances, we felt it was the responsible alternative. We did get positive feedback on the night with both parents and teachers stating that they liked knowing that a time was set aside for them to meet and focus on student achievement. December 9, 2020 from 4pm - 7pm is the next Parent/Teacher conference. This will more than likely have the same virtual component.
Badger students have gotten involved in numerous community service projects over the last month. Student Council hosted a Blood Drive for Badger students and staff only. FCCLA created a “Sternberg Free Day” fundraiser with donations going to the Food Pantry. Mr. Sternberg is a staff member who, among other duties, escorts students to the Associate Principals’ offices. And lastly, our Library spearheaded a Book Fair with proceeds benefiting the Badger Holiday Giving Program. It has truly been a great month at Badger.
As we head into the winter months, please remember to have a conversation with your student about winter driving tips. And, if driving to school, remind them to come in and purchase a parking tag for their vehicle.
One scheduling reminder as we head into the long Thanksgiving weekend, Tuesday, November 24 will be an eight period day. Students are off school Wednesday, November 25 through Friday, November 27.
Badger students are doing a great job helping to keep the Badger Community healthy. Please remind your students to continue to wear their masks correctly when in the building and wash those hands!
