Field Day 2019

You may have heard that we have 20 Lucky Ducks in our Kindergarten classroom...but it really is Mrs. Crosby and I who are the Lucky Ducks. Our students are a curious group of hands-on learners who LOVE to do science experiments, play math games with partners, write and illustrate stories in our publishing center, learn and use robust vocabulary words like alliteration and onomatopoeia, and read, read, read. In our room we also love to create immersion areas which show what we have learned. Our most recent immersion area connected to our study of plants.   Some of the items included in this area were a Flower Shop, HUGE lima bean plants growing in our window, and beautiful hyacinths and daisies that we painted. We had so much fun playing in this immersion area as we learned about the parts of plants and what plants need to grow and survive. Our room is a happy place where learning magically happens.

The yearbook order deadline has passed. There will be extra yearbooks for sale in late May. More information about the process to purchase additional copies is forthcoming.

We've had a great week this week at Bookman Road! Thanks to all who attended our Muffins for Moms breakfast today and participated in our Disability Awareness Week activities. We value all of our students and the unique differences they bring. That's what makes our school and the world an awesome place to be!

Be safe this weekend, and we look forward to seeing you bright and early Monday morning.

Attention Parents of 4th Grade Students Only!

Richland School District Two is asking ALL 4th grade parents to complete a survey sponsored by the Department of Defense. Military families are a big part of the Bookman Road family and, as a result, Bookman Road Elementary receives a DoDEA grant. This survey serves as a way to collect data and helps with our efforts to work with families in our school community. We want to make sure that we are doing all we can for our families and their students. We need ALL 4th grade families to please complete the survey by April 5, 2019. Your responses will be completely anonymous.

Thank you in advance for completing this survey that was emailed to you this afternoon. 

Dear Bookman Families,
Our first grade charity this year is to collect money for the Columbia Police Department’s K-9 Unit.  We want to raise money to put towards a new bullet proof vest for one of the police dogs.
Each classroom has a “piggy bank" container for any donations.  Students will come around and pick up donations every Wednesday for the entire month of March.  The last day to donate will be Friday, March 29th.
The Police officers and dogs will be coming to Bookman the following day to collect our donations.  We are so excited! Thank you in advance for donating any of your loose change!

Don’t DIS- our Abilities!

We will be celebrating Disability Awareness Week April 1st-5th.  Bookman is a Unified Champion School. The Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools program is aimed at promoting social inclusion through intentionally planned and implemented activities affecting system-wide change. During that week we will provide activities and listen to special guest speakers that will help children learn and develop positive attitudes about and behaviors toward people with disabilities. Each day during the week of April 1st- 5th we are asking our Beacons to wear a specific color to bring awareness to various disabilities. We continuously work to create a school climate where students with disabilities feel welcome and are routinely included in and feel a part of, all activities, opportunities, and functions.

Special thanks to Zaniya in 5th grade for designing our yearbook cover! Don't let the deadline pass by!
