On Monday, August 21, 2017, the moon will pass between the earth and the sun for the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse since 1918. Millions of Americans in 12 states will be able to watch this solar spectacle that will turn day into night for a couple of minutes. Tennessee is among the 12 states that have been declared to be the best place to experience this rare phenomenon.
Bartlett City Schools is planning for its students to participate in this event. BCS has purchased and will supply solar eclipse viewing glasses for students. Permission slips will be coming home next week. Parents of students in grades K-8 must sign and return all forms no later than Thursday, August 17, 2017.

Bartlett Elementary School needs your support! We are kicking off our 2017-2018 fundraising season by selling the popular Memphis City Saver coupon book with their companion iPhone & Android App for DOUBLE SAVINGS! We will send one sample book home. Additional books will be delivered upon payment.

We know that with your help, we can reach our goal of $15,000 this year. We are asking each family to BUY ONE and SELL ONE, that’s it.
The book sells for $25 and our school will make 50% for every book sold!

AAH! Those Lazy Days of Summer! Summer is a fun time to rest
and relax, but we hope you will play outside and be as active as you can! Your body doesn’t need a long break! We would like for you to keep a log of the number of minutes you spend each day exercising. You can ride your bike, jump on a trampoline, play sports, play tag, jog, swim or dance! EVERY 15 MINUTES OF CONTINUAL EXERCISE EQUALS ONE MILE! Write down what activities you do each day, and the number of “miles” you do. Your goal is to get 100
Miles by the first day of school, August 7th. IF YOU REACH THIS GOAL, you will become a member of the 100 MILE CLUB!
Those who make the 100 MILE CLUB will enjoy a celebration during school this fall!
Parents will need to verify this activity by signing on the 100 Mile Club Challenge Form (Click the headline to print.) Return this form to us on the first day of school. SEE YOU IN AUGUST!
