Celebraciones de Cumpleaños

Debido a preocupaciones de alergia, volveremos a evaluar nuestra póliza de cumpleaños de estudiantes para el próximo año. Durante el resto de este año, los pastelitos o brownies comprados en la tienda son aceptables para ser traídos por los padres a la hora del almuerzo del niño. También puede considerar artículos no alimenticios como lápices, gomas de borrar, calcomanías, etc. Todos los obsequios deben preestablecerse con el maestro por lo menos dos días escolares por adelantado para dar tiempo a revisar las alergias en el aula y consultar padres de estudiantes con alergias según sea necesario. Las golosinas solo se pueden compartir con los estudiantes en la lista de la clase y no con amigos de otras clases, nuevamente debido a nuestra necesidad de verificar nuestras listas médicas para garantizar que no haya alergias.

¡Todos los niños tienen la opción de sentarse en nuestro "Puesto de cumpleaños”, un área especial para sentarse en la cafetería donde los compañeros de clase pueden comer juntos y celebrar un día especial!

 

Café para Padres de Bailey’s Upper

Qué: Café para Padres: Vapeo

Cuándo: miércoles 26 de febrero de 9:00 a.m. a 10:00 a.m.

Donde: Bailey's Upper

Únase a nosotros para un café informativo con la oradora invitada, Kelly Rankin, con la Oficina de Seguridad y Bienestar Estudiantil de FCPS para discutir el tema del vapeo. Vapear es una epidemia en nuestra nación y FCPS no es inmune. Nuestros adolescentes están comenzando a experimentar a una edad mucho más temprana. Muchos adolescentes que tienen un hermano mayor son introducidos a vapear más temprano que tarde. Cuanto antes comienzan, más rápido se vuelven adictos a la nicotina. Actualmente, FCPS está trabajando con adolescentes de 9o grado que son adictos a la nicotina y no pueden pasar la clase sin vapear. Únase a Kelly Rankin, especialista en prevención de abuso de sustancias de FCPS, para conocer los peligros del vapeo y por qué la adicción está ocurriendo tan rápidamente. Habrá tiempo para preguntas al final.

 

¡Bienvenido!

¡Ayúdenos a dar la bienvenida a nuestro nuevo Asistente Administrativo de Bailey’s Upper, Rodney Jackson! ¡Es una gran adición a nuestra familia BUpper!

Birthday Celebrations

Due to allergy concerns, we will be reevaluating our policy for student birthdays for next year. For the remainder of this year, store bought cupcakes or brownies are acceptable to be brought in by the parent at the child’s lunchtime.  You may also consider non-food items such as pencils, erasers, stickers, etc. All treats must be pre-arranged with the teacher at least two school days in advanced in order to give time to review the allergies in the classroom and confer with parents of students with allergies as needed. Treats may only be shared with students on the class roster and not with friends from other classes, again due to our need to verify our medical lists to ensure there are no allergies.

 

All children have the option to sit at our “Birthday Booth”, a special seating area in the café where classmates can eat together and celebrate a special day!

 

Bailey's Upper Parent Coffee

What:        Parent Coffee – Vaping

When:       Wednesday, February 26th from 9:00 am to 10:00 am

Where:      Bailey’s Upper

 

Please join us for an informative coffee with guest speaker, Kelly Rankin, with FCPS Office of Student Safety and Wellness to discuss the topic of vaping.  Vaping is an epidemic in our Nation and FCPS is not immune. Our teens are starting to experiment at a much younger age. Many teens that have an older sibling are introduced sooner than later. The earlier they start the quicker they become addicted to nicotine.  FCPS is currently working with teens as young as 9th grade that are addicted to nicotine and can’t make it through class without vaping. Join Kelly Rankin a FCPS Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist to learn about the dangers of vaping and why the addiction is happening so quickly.  There will be time for questions at the end. 

 

 

Welcome!

Please help us in welcoming our new Bailey's Upper Administrative Assistant, Rodney Jackson! He is a great addition to our BUpper family!
