Last Day of School – Friday, June 24th @ 11:30am (No Lunch Served)

Another Successful School Year!
As I sit here writing this last Update for the 2015-16 school year, I think about how grateful I am to be part of this Bishop community. I cannot be more proud to be the Principal of this school. We are all so fortunate to have such an amazing staff of educators and specialists. Their dedication, professionalism, passion for teaching, and love for students, has a lifelong impact on our young learners. I wish you a happy, safe, and healthy summer!

Nurse Donna’s Retirement Announcement
Nurse Donna will be retiring after 45 years in the nursing profession. This is a bittersweet time for us all as she leaves the office for the last time. The school will hold a special Den Meeting tomorrow morning to bid her a proper farewell. On behalf of the Bishop staff, I thank Nurse Donna for her guidance, collegiality, and friendship over the years. She will surely be missed!

Grade Level Class Supply Lists Online Now
For your convenience and reference as you enter the summer months awaiting class assignments for the next school year (which will be mailed out sometime late July), I have posted individual grade level supply lists on our website, found under the teacher links. Iím hopeful that this will be helpful to you.

No Child Left Behind

The federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states and school districts to produce and disseminate annual report cards.

These report cards include information on student assessment, accountability, andteacher quality; the report cards may also include other information. They also provide parents and other members of the public a snapshot of student performance and teacher qualifications in their local schools.
