Field Day Volunteers Needed

Friday June 9 is Field Day - a fun-filled day of outdoor games for all of our students to celebrate the end of the year together with their class!  Please sign up to volunteer here - it is a great way to see our kids in action (quite literally)!

Field Day Shifts
AM shift (8:30am - 12noon / Setup & Games):  3rd to 5th grade
PM shift (1pm - 4:30pm / Games & Teardown):  Kindergarten to 2nd grade

Note: All volunteers are required to complete a BSD volunteer background check.  If you previously have done one within the last 3yrs (and it's still valid), you do not need to do it again.  We look forward to you joining us!

Parenthood Development: BSD & Somerset Safety Talk

Join us for our Parenthood Development talk on May 31 at 7pm (**note change in time**) in the Somerset cafeteria/gym. Kelle Hansman (Emergency Management Program Coordinator for Bellevue School District) and Leif Moe-Lobeda (aka Mr. Moe, Assistant Principal at Somerset Elementary) will share how BSD prepares for safety during emergencies and specifically, how these procedures are applied at Somerset. We will learn about the safety structure in place, types of drills our students practice, and how we can talk with our kids about these various scenarios.

New!  Right At School will provide free childcare so that parents can attend this important talk - please sign up here.  An email with important info will be sent to those who signed up a few days before the event.

NOTE: Space is very limited and the sign-up up will close on May 28 - if you have not signed up, please do not bring your child(ren) to the event.  RSVP for each child and include their name in the comment section.  If you prefer not to post your child's name publicly, please sign up with your name for the spot(s) and email with the information.  Thank you!
