Happy February, Bobcats!
Our focus in February is kindness. This month, our school community will be recognizing the kindness that we show to each other. Brecht Students will have the opportunity to recognize random acts of kindness as they decorate their classroom doors with these examples.
Children who will be five years old on or by August 31st are eligible to register for Kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year. There will be a parent meeting on March 12th at 6:30 pm in Convocation Hall at Manheim Township High School. You can register your child for kindergarten online. Please visit the school district’s website at mtwp.net and click on kindergarten registration. If you have questions about the online registration, please contact the enrollment office at 569-8231.
Brecht’s Staff is excited about the district’s technology initiative. All 3rd grade students received a one to one device (iPad) earlier this school year. This initiative is expanding sooner than expected. We are excited to announce that all students K-4 will be issued an iPad during the month of February. Student iPads will remain at school for instructional use.
February is filled with great events. Our Project Fair and Book Fair will be on January 31st from 6-7:30 pm. Our next Bobcat Dad/VIP Breakfast will be on Friday, February 2nd. Be sure to look for your child’s report card on February 6th. Our February PTO meeting will be on February 21st. Childcare will be available at the PTO meeting. Please note that there is an early dismissal on February 15th and no school on February 16th. School will in session on Monday February 19th as a snow make up day. International Night will be on March 7th. More information will be sent home regarding these events. Thank you for your kindness and embracing the many ways you can be actively involved in the Brecht Community.
