Florida Family Engagement in Education Month is a time to celebrate the important role parents and families play in their children's education.  When schools work together with families to support learning, children are more motivated to succeed - not just in school, but throughout life.

The Florida Department of Education recognizes the vital role that schools and families play throughout a child's educational journey.  To help schools celebrate Florida Family Engagement in Education Month, DOE has created a toolkit, which can be accessed at http://www.fldoe.org/schools/family-community/activities-programs/parental-involvement.stml

End of 1st Quarter

October 9, 2015

Friday, October 9, is the last day of the 1st quarter.

The first two weeks of October are Disability History and Awareness Weeks.  Section 1003.4205, Florida Statutes, entitled Disability History and Awareness Instruction, was signed into law in 2008.  It requires school districts to designate the first two weeks of October as Disability History and Awareness Weeks and also promotes providing instruction for students in all public schools to expand student knowledge, understanding, and awareness of individuals with disabilities, disability history, and the disability rights movement.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month!  Schools and organizations across the country are encouraged to come together in an effort to educate on the impact of bullying and raise awareness for bullying prevention.  The Florida Department of Education has a dedicated site with helpful resources for educators, parents, and students.  Please visit http://www.fldoe.org/schools/safe-healthy-schools/safe-schools/bullying-prevention.stml for more information.
Bonifay Elementary will be taking part in the new statewide initiative “Dads Take Your Child To School Day” on Wednesday, September 30.  We are going to allow dads, or any male role models involved in that student’s life, to walk with their student to class.  After walking them to class, teachers and staff will help those participating find their way to the Activity Building located on the east side of the school.  While we wait for everyone to arrive, refreshments will be provided.  At 8:00, a brief video and a few words will be shared with everyone.  We look forward to sharing this brief part of the day with you.
