It has been a GREAT week at Blue Mountain! The first 2 days of our 100 Mile Club were very well attended, with nearly 100 students running each morning. The two-day total was 350 miles! Just awesome! Thanks to Ms. Pollock for organizing the 100 Mile Club again this year, and to our parent volunteers who help count laps each morning!
We have had a great week! Picture Day is always a fun adventure and this year was no exception! If you still want to purchase the school pictures, please turn in your money by Friday.
Have you asked your child about Genius Hour? Be sure to ask them about what they are studying, what their focus question is, and who their intended audience is! You will be very impressed with the variety of topics that students choose to research, and what their depth of knowledge is about their selected topic!
We are having a great week! Students are fully engaged in meaningful work and are excited about learning!
Our PTO is sponsoring another Spirit Night TONIGHT (Thursday) at the Dairy Queen on the corner of Hover and Ken Pratt, by Sports Authority. A portion of what you spend comes back to the PTO to support programming for all students! What a great deal - have a treat AND support your school at the same time! Be sure to mention Blue Mountain when you place your order.
