BSD Calendar for 2018-19

 

Last Day of School Now June 21 for 2018-19 School Year
Missed school days due to snow – five total in February – will result in the school year being extended by one day. The last day of school for the Bellevue School District will be Friday, June 21.

One additional makeup day will also be added on Friday, March 15. The day was originally a planned professional development day for teachers, but all students will now be expected to attend school that day. March 18 is now a professional development day for all certified staff, and will remain a no school day for all students.

The district will request a waiver from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for the remaining three missed school days due to snow. Additional days could still be added pending approval by the state of the district waiver request.

January Family Newsletter

Happy New Year, Wolves!  We hope that you had a relaxing break and are ready to get back into the school routine!  So many of our students did a great job reading over break and turned in their Reading Challenge Forms Today.  Students who turned in their forms will be enjoying their Hot Cocoa Party on Wednesday. 

This winter/spring we have many activities our students will partake in along with the everyday learning they experience.  Below are a few ways students are extending their learning in January:

  • Grade 2 will welcome the Toyman
  • All students will enjoy a Zaniac Assembly (thank you Bellevue Schools Foundation)
  • 4/5 grade students will have a glass fusing workshop (thank you BSF)
  • The BHS choir and Steeldrum groups will perform at Wilburton
  • Living Voices: Island of Hope will perform for grade 3 (thank you BSF)

All students will have events and activities throughout the year that extend their learning and continue to focus on making the learning rigorous and relevant. 

This month will also feature our first ever FESTIVAL OF CULTURE for Wilburton Families.  We are excited to partner with PTA to sponsor this evening! The evening will be from 6-8pm on January 25.  We hope everyone can make it to learn about the many cultures around the world that make up our Wilburton community!  If you would like to help and/or be part of the Festival of Culture, please go to https://www.wilburtonpta.org/festival-of-culture/ for more details.

Family Newsletter: August 2018

Dear Wilburton Family,

The building is nearing completion, our playground is almost done, and our staff started their work together this past week to prepare for our opening!  Getting to that first day of school (or even just moving into the building!) is within reach and the excitement and energy around our new school community is amazing.
