What an Egg-Citing Day at Bloomfield! The 3rd Grade egg hatching project is happening!
May 14, 2021 Bomber Parents/Guardians, The PTO has been unable to meet this year and we are planning to hold the first and only meeting of the academic year on Tuesday May 25th at 6:30 pm. It has been an unprecedented year and I felt it necessary to prepare for next school year to hit the ground running! While we were unable to do things this year, my hope is that the Bloomfield PTO will be back bigger and better. First and foremost, we are in need of 3 of the 4 officers. Please consider being an officer in this organization. Our Bloomfield students directly benefit from this. Without a presiding officer, I have created an agenda for a smooth transition. Elections will take place on May 25th. Again, if you are interested in any position, feel free to reach out to me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call. The future of Bloomfield PTO rests with the parent volunteers. Please do not comment or use Facebook to reach out to the school. You can always call or email. If you have any questions at all on this do not hesitate to call the school at 260-726-9417. Go Bombers! Sincerely, Ben Dues
Grandma Wilkins has supervised well over 4,000 recesses at Bloomfield over the years!
Grandma Wilkins told Bloomfield students many times at all grade levels an important statement: "All the things I need to know I learned in Kindergarten."
Happy Retirement Joanie (Grandma) Wilkins! You have done so many great things in the quarter century here at Bloomfield!
Our thoughts and prayers go to the family of John Minch. Thanks for all you have done for Bloomfield students and community Mr. Minch!
