September 18, 2023, Weekly Overview for Binion Bobcats
Hello! Bobcat Parents/Guardians
I hope this message finds you having a great week! Last week was filled with a lot of exciting activities and we have another week of activities and events for our Binion Bobcat Fam!
Parents, a gentle reminder that cafeteria doors will open at 7:30 a.m. daily for breakfast, school starts at 8:00 a.m., and the tardy bell is 8:10 a.m. Please let’s try to have students at school before 8:00 a.m. to avoid them being late and being tardy to school. Remember that 6 unexcused tardies equal one unexcused absence. Thanks for your support in this matter.
We will have an attendance challenge this week! It will run from September 18 – September 22! The classes with 98% or Higher this week will receive a Pop Corn Party the following week! Let’s see which class can win!! Let’s Go Bobcats!
Good News Club Application(attached), the first meeting will be September 21, 2023. Attached below is a Parent Permission Form in both the English and Spanish language. To register your student(s) so they can attend the Good News Club that is offered at Binion for a 10-week period on Thursdays, print off the appropriate form and complete it. Have your student turn in the form to the school’s office. Multiple students in a household can be included in a single form. A Good News Club is an internationally popular after-school program.
