Buck Lake Families, We are thrilled to bring our Caldecott Carnival back on January 10th, but we NEED many more volunteers. We are asking that you consider having at least one parent in your family volunteer for a shift at the event if possible. This is a HUGE community event and cannot be successful without help from our community volunteers. Please let me know if you have questions. Karen Young (email@example.com)Monday, 12/17Thursday, 12/13
Take a peek at our Caldecott Activities this year!*Pizza Forms Due By Tuesday, December 18th.IF you previously placed an order for pizza for the Caldecott Carnival, you do NOT need to order another pizza.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!
We welcome parents, grandparents, high school, college students and supervised middle school students to volunteer for a shift. We MUST have volunteers to make this event a success. Please make sure that you are registered to volunteer with Leon County Schools.

Buck Lake Fundraiser Update!
Our Boosterthon Fun Run is scheduled for this Friday! However, due to bad weather forecasts, we’re moving the Fun Run indoors. We’ve also decided to UPGRADE our experience to the HEROFIT FITNESS CHALLENGE!
Students will participate in a 30-minute fitness challenge, and each fitness activity they complete will be considered one lap. Students will still average between 30 and 35 laps (or in this case, fitness activities). Nothing will change in regards to amounts pledged or what sponsors should expect to pay. We’re so excited to give our students the best experience possible as we encourage fitness and celebrate helping our school!
The HeroFit Fitness Challenge schedule is listed below, and in case you missed it, the instructions for how to get a pledge are below as well. It’s not too late to register your student and get a pledge! Help us reach our goal of $25,000! Thanks so much for supporting Buck Lake Elementary!
Wear your red kindergarten class t-shirt tomorrow!
HeroFit Fitness Challenge Schedule
Friday, November 2nd

Our class is having a great time learning all about how to solve problems using character! Make sure to check in with your child today to see what they’ve been learning through MindSpark Mystery Lab!
I wanted to give you an update on our class’s progress! Our class has reached $20 on our Pledge O Meter! We alredy earned extra recess time, extra free-center time, and crazy hair day! (I will let you know when crazy hair day will happen.) We think we can make it even further to help our school! Our next prize levels are $30-shoes off day and $40-Popcorn Party! The kids are so excited:)
Will you help us by reaching out to one or two more sponsors tonight?
Already, 12/19 of our students are registered online! THANK YOU! If you haven’t yet registered your student on funrun.com, don’t worry, there’s still time to do it! Plus, once you’re registered, you’ll find lots of fun, easy ways to reach out to sponsors like our Easy Emailer, Facebook Share button, or even the Student Star Video!
Thank you for your support of our school!

Superintendent Hanna has made the decision to close schools Tuesday, October 9 through Friday, October 12th. This includes all after school activities beginning tomorrow and lasting until further notice. Many of our schools will transition into shelters beginning tomorrow and will need to be closed. We are also very aware of the need of our families and employees to prepare for the impact of Hurricane Michael. This storm has potential to be catastrophic so please prepare accordingly. Stay safe and continue to monitor our social media channels for updates.
I will continue to post on listserv and through social media updates about our school status.
Be safe, Bobcats!
