Message from the Principal
We are excited about the start of the 2012-2013 school year! We’re hoping you and your family had a wonderful summer getting outside, playing at the park, swimming, and visiting with family and friends.
Clubs and Activities
Students participating in the Culture Club will learn to appreciate and understand various cultures and traditions from around the world. They will also develop an open mind to better understand and respect differences among people globally.
Eco Club meets every other Monday after school with Mrs. Schillinger and Mrs. Lepley (who happen to love the Earth!). We are a group of children who are all very interested in looking after our environment, not just in school but in the local area as well. Every year we help educate students and staff about being more earth friendly and are responsible for the recycling program at our school. We sponsor and run a huge and fun event at Boulder Hill on Earth Day every year. For the past two years, we have been able to provide over 1200 trees for our families to plant! GO GREEN!
Journalism club is responsible for the monthly Bobcat Bulletin and a yearbook at the end of the year. Each student will have an important job to do! The club meets meeting at 7:40 am in the Computer Lab on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. (Due to holidays, some months will only have one meeting.) Students may not miss more than three meetings if they are to be a part of this club.
This year is the 8
year of the Boulder Hill Student Senate. Each year, 2-3 representatives are selected from each 2
, and 5
grade classroom. Senators have to complete an application to let Mrs. Hejtmanek know that who is interested. Teachers then recommend students who show good character for being responsible for good school attendance, doing homework on time, being respectful, and being a good role model. Senators must have also been recommended from their previous year’s teacher if they attended Boulder Hill. Senators attend meetings twice a month at 7:45 before school to plan for the year. They also sometimes work during lunches for fundraisers, afterschool, night time activities at school, and occasionally on a Saturday.
As student leaders of Boulder Hill, one of their jobs is to create a united school community. One way this is accomplished is through spirit days.
During a Senate meeting, the students will brainstorm and vote on themes for these days, which occur on the first Friday of each month. Another way the Senate promotes a positive school environment is through the “Problem Pepperoni.” They wanted to have a way to help classmates solve their problems so they worked with the Social Worker to devise a method for students to solve minor problems. One way we show the pillar of citizenship is through community service. Last year, on our school’s Caps for Kids day, students could pay one dollar to wear a hat to school. After finishing our fundraisers, we decide as a group which organizations really need our help. In the last 6 years, the Senate has donated all the money they have made to the following groups:
St. Jude’s Children’s Cancer Hospital
The Tsunami Relief Fund
Toys for Tots
Donating money to help need Boulder Hill families at Christmas
Feed My Starving Children
Caps for Kids
These are just a few of the exciting things the Student Senate participates in to make Boulder Hill a better place!
