Dear Blades Elementary School Families,

We hope everyone had a fun, safe, and relaxing summer! We know this is going to be another WONDERFUL year at Blades!!

The following is essential beginning of the year information for your family:

Inside this envelope you will find a letter from your child’s NEW teacher. The envelope also contains a school supply list, a map for arrival and dismissal procedures, and a district calendar.  

There will be a Kindergarten Popsicle Playdate/Curriculum Night on Wednesday, August 7, from 6:00-7:00 P.M. Students will have an opportunity to meet all the kindergarten teachers and students in their grade level.  It’s also an opportunity to hear about the curriculum and expectations for the students and families. In addition, students will have their first ride on a Mehlville school bus!!  Please bring your supplies that night. 

Blades Welcome Back Night is on Monday, August 12.  It is a great time for students to come to school and meet their new teacher and visit their new home/classroom for the school year.  Please bring your supplies that night to make the first day go easier.  

Here is the schedule for Monday, August 12:
~ Grades 4th and 5th will go from 5:00-6:00 pm
        Meet in the gym or library first and then move to classrooms later.
~ Grades 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will go from 6:30-7:30 pm
        Families will go straight to their classrooms to meet their teachers.

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 13, 2019!!  We know families will be wanting to park and bring their students on the first day, but we highly suggest having them ride the bus or go through the parent drop off line as soon as possible to help them get into the swing of things.

Our parent organization, The Blades Bobcat Boosters (BBB), is hosting a Blades Block Party on Thursday, August 22 at 5:30pm at Blades to welcome back our families and students!  There will be food trucks, bounce houses, games, etc.  Please mark it on your calendar and we will see you there!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office at 467-7300.  Thank you for all of your support in making your child’s education a success.  Enjoy your last weeks of vacation with your family and friends!  

Let’s get FOCUSED about having the best year ever!!

Sincerely,

Dr. Jeremy Booker
