From the Principal’s Office

Dear Parents,

Good news! The “SchoolKidz” supply kits have arrived!

If you ordered a kit for your child, you can pick it up Friday, 09/01, 8:00am-2:00pm, or your child can pick it up on the first day of school next Tuesday.

Some padlocks are on back order, and we are also waiting for kits for Italian and Chinese, but all other supplies are here.

Please check in at the main office, and then proceed to the atrium hallway next to the courtyard to find your kits. They are organized by grade and by world language.

There will be an introductory meeting/audition workshop on Thursday, Sept 7, from 3-5. It is HIGHLY recommended that students who are interested in doing drama at Bigelow, whether returning students or new ones, attend.
