Blessing Bags

The first grade class has been busy collecting items for blessing bags to send to our veterans.  Today, with the help of Nick and KJ, the class was able to put together 76 blessing bags!  Way to go Gators!

Happy Holidays!

The Grinch is one of my all-time favorite books and I am so glad that I was able to get my picture taken with him today.  Certainly one of those things that can help get you into the holiday spirit!  Happy Holidays!

High School Expansion Information

During our November School Board Meeting, Bozeman School District #7 Superintendent Dr. Rob Watson, BSD7 Trustee Sandra Wilson, and BSD7 Trustee Douglas Fischer discuss the process for the new high school.  Don't worry if you weren't able to make it, there is plenty of information on the future school on the Bozeman Public School website.  There will also be a public meeting in the Bozeman High School South Cafeteria on December 8 at 6 and 7 pm.  This is a very exciting project and I appreciate the time Dr. Watson, Ms. Wilson, and Mr. Fisher spent with us to keep us informed.

On November 22, several of our middle school students participated in the annual Science Olympiad.  The event was held on the MSU campus and it was great to watch our students showcase their scientific ability.  Our Gators worked very hard on their projects and it was so great to hear their feedback!  The final results were:
