We Need Your Help!

Bauer Elementary Girls on the Run  (GOTR) is still in need of items to donate to the Harbor Humane Society.  We are challenging each student to bring in an item or a $1.00 donation to help our cause.  The Team ran 113 laps, in an effort to collect as many items or dollars, to assist local orphaned animals.  Can  you help?  Please bring your donation by Wednesday, May 27th.

The class with the most items or dollars donated will receive a special treat from our GOTR Team.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

You are invited to the:  Bauer Family Picnic

Thursday, June 4, from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm.

Families & friends are invited to celebrate the end of a great school year by attending an all school picnic. Bring a picnic lunch for your family and a blanket to sit on. If you are unable to attend the picnic, your child will be welcome to join in with friends.

For students that would like to order school lunch that day, the only option will be a sack lunch (sandwich, fruit, baby carrots, treat and milk) through the Food Service Department for $2.25. Free or reduced prices will apply. The cost will be taken out of your child's account so please be sure that money is available.

We will be eating on the playground. You will want to pre-arrange a spot to meet your child(ren). Families will be eating together from 11:30 am - 12:10 pm. 

Other Details:  
Optional activities will commence at 12:10 pm. There will be face painting, kickball & soccer games, and the parachute game.  Students may stay with their families and visit, play on the playground, or join in the activities. 

Extra parking will be available on the grassy area in front of the PreK/K playground. A parking attendant will direct you where to park in that area.

At 12:30 pm our picnic will end and students will go back to their classrooms.

**In the event of rain, families will meet in the child’s classroom.**

Bond Election - August 4, 2015

Bond Election - August 4, 2015
On August 4, 2015, Hudsonville Public Schools is asking voters to consider a $21.9 million bond proposal.  The proposal would address continued growth in the district by funding renovations and additions as well as secure entrances, technology enhancements and bus replacements.  If successful, the district expects to maintain the current millage rate of 7 mills by utilizing the state’s School Loan Revolving Fund to extend the debt levy for six additional years.

Cookies and Canvas Night

The cookies and canvas night was a big hit! The tables were packed with Bauer girls and their special someone and they were ready to paint. We have some great artists here! Kelley Bussa (library/para pro) thought of and planned this special night and Lindsey Moss (art teacher) led the painting lessons. Also, thanks goes to Karen Opple and moms who helped throughout the night.

Enjoy some photos of the night and a special video to moms!
