Welcome to Bedford Elementary School
Home of the Bedford Bees!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Happy May! The month of May is filled with activities here at Bedford! This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and I just want to take a second to recognize all the outstanding staff we have here at Bedford. They work so hard each day to make sure your children are getting quality instruction and that all their social and emotional needs are being met. Please take a second this week to send a Thank You into your child’s teacher! We have attached a blank note you could use if you would like to send them in a note or feel free to send an email or any other format you feel is appropriate.
This week we also started the PARCC End of the Year Assessment. This will be given to all 3rd-5th graders in the areas of Reading and Math. Our 1st and 2nd graders will also be taking the MAP assessment to measure their academic growth throughout this year. Please continue to ensure that your students get a good night sleep and arrive to school on time daily. This will help to prepare them to do their best on these end of the year assessments.
Our PTA is also planning a Spring Festival on Saturday, May 16th from 10-2. This is being held in conjunction with the Campfield ELC PTA and will be a day full of fun, games and activities. Hopefully your students are already participating in the daily Reading Challenge and are reading 20 minutes each night and logging their time on a reading log. If 75% of our students complete the challenge, I will do the Ice Bucket Challenge at the Spring Festival!! If your student has lost their log, they can ask for another or you can just keep a log on a piece of notebook paper.
Thank you as always for everything you do to help Bedford be a wonderful place to learn and work!
