Cold Weather Guidelines

cold weatherAs the weather gets colder, we will have to make the daily determination on whether students should go outside for recess. Fresh air is important for our students and we want them to be able to go outside as much as possible. Please dress your children in appropriate clothing for the weather. A jacket and long pants are required when the temperature is below 40 degrees. We do have the gym available for indoor recess and will use that space when we cannot go outside. Thank you for your help with this!

BLAIRSTOWN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HELPING HOMELESS VETERANS

             Last year a check of  $1,600 was given to “Operation Chillout”, which is an all-volunteer not-for-profit homeless veterans outreach program.  Their purpose is to help veterans-in-need and to end homelessness in the general public.

          The organization is building  “Tiny Houses” for  Warren County veterans.  The money we donate will be  used to purchase needed items.

          The project is sponsored by BES’s Student Council.  In addition, the entire school will be involved in making cards thanking the veterans for their service.  Staff members will also be  involved by  holding a “Dress-Casual” Day and donating the money for this project.

     November 11th will  be our “Operation Chillout” Kickoff Day. We are asking each student to bring in $2.00 to be used toward reaching our goal.  Can we surpass last year’s donations? Any amount, smaller or larger, will be appreciated.  We will continue collecting money through November 15th. We are also asking everyone to wear red, white, and blue on Monday to honor our veterans.

          If you would like any further information about this project please go to www.operationchillout.org

Little Free Libraries at Blairstown Elementary School

free libraryfree Blairstown Elementary School is excited to announce the addition of two Little Free Libraries thanks to the Blairstown PTG. The Little Free Libraries are a way for students to read books and are free for anyone to use. You can take books, share books, or leave books. Some books might include a note about who gave it or has read it. Feel free to leave your own note in a book when you are done. Once you have read a book, you can return it to the library or pass it on to a friend. You are also welcome to leave books at the library. One library is located in the front of the school and the other is being installed by the playground. For more information about the Little Free Library, please visit https://littlefreelibrary.org/.
