Next week we will be participating in a fun learning activity by partnering with the Kyle Kiihnl Memorial Foundation. The Kyle Kiihnl Memorial Foundation works to educate us on the dangers of driving sleep impaired as well as the need for 8-10 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Of course our children aren’t driving yet, but it makes sense that the earlier we teach them about our need for sleep and the amazing things that happen when we sleep, the better prepared they will be to be safe and alert drivers in the future.
Each day this week, we will have a short lesson on sleep:
• Why we sleep
• What good things happen while we sleep, and
• How to fall asleep, if you are having trouble doing so.
On Friday, we are asking the children to participate in our PJ Days by wearing their pajamas to school and making a $2 (cash) donation to the Foundation.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Foundation’s education director, Kathi Wright, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come and join us an exciting preview of Kindergarten! We invite you to meet our teachers and administration staff, tour the school, and pre-register your child for the 2018-2019 school year. Come out and see all that we have to offer!
When: Thursday, April 26th 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Where: Bon Lin Elementary
Questions: (901) 937-2344

Cell Phones in School Zones
Listed as Law Number One:
Adult drivers can’t talk on a hand-held cell phone while driving through a school zone when warning lights are flashing. This is a Class C misdemeanor with a fine up to $50. This doesn’t apply if the driver is in an exception classification. (law enforcement officers and other) or is communicating with first responders in a bonafide emergency. Drivers can talk on hands-free phones and use hands-free functions to send and receive text. Drivers under ages of 18 can’t talk on the phone or send/receive texts while driving, even if the device is hands-free. (Senate Bill B0954)
Please remember that this law applies to when parents are picking-up their children in the car-line. They should not be on their hand-held cell phones.
Thank you so much to Mayor McDonald, Superintendent Dr. Stephens, Board Members Erin Berry and Shirley Jackson, BHS football players Josh Russell and Mason Harris for reading to our students during American Education Week.
