Posts from the ‘News’ Category
Hello Birchtree Families! Please mark your calendars for a very important weekend for our school. The weekend dates of August 10, 11, and 12 will be a focused, organized, and fun community build for our playground. Additional detailed information will be coming to you this summer, but for now please save the dates of August 10, 11, and 12. Also, you can contact Jennifer Budde for additional information at 232-5852. Without the many generous, energetic hands of the Birchtree community, this won’t happen. We, and most importantly, our students, need you to make this playground happen. See you on August 10 – 12!
As the end of year approaches and as is typical for the month of May, there is much transpiring in every classroom. Many classes are putting-on a class play for which the teachers could use any assistance that you may give. Additionally, there are many class field trips occurring over the next month that I would encourage you to ask your classroom teacher or lead volunteer about.
Attached to this e-mail is the Friday Update, as well as a letter regarding the upcoming Woodland May Faire this Saturday, May 12th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. I hope that you will take the time to read through these, and please call or e-mail if you have any questions or comments (745-1831 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Have a beautiful weekend, and we hope to see you at the Spring Orchestra Concert this evening.

Allow me to first thank all of you who participated in some capacity in the Parent Appreciation Party last Saturday. It was a wonderful time spent with our incredible community. Kelly Strawn, thank you for chairing this party committee and for gracing us with your dance moves.
Attached is this week’s Friday Update, and there are many new dates and events that will be of interest. In addition to these, I would like to relay a couple of other points of information. The 6th graders are now selling their hand-created, tie-dyed t-shirts. These shirts sport an owl emblem, our school mascot, and are dyed in the earth tones of green and brown. You can purchase one at the front desk for $12.00.
Also, our school will be participating as a drop-off location for Full Circle Farms beginning next week. If you would like to join this coop and receive organic, farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, please visit their website at https://secure.fullcircle.com/signup/?. Simply enter the 99645 zip code and choose Birchtree Charter School in the drop-down box. Deliveries will be made every Thursday, and the school will be open in the summer for pick-up days from 12 – 4 p.m.
Have a delightful weekend, and I hope you are able to spend some time outdoors.
