Welcome from Principal Henry

Dear Bidwell Parents and Community,

I would like to welcome you back for the 2018-2019 school year. I am delighted to begin my 5th year as Principal of John Bidwell Elementary school and anticipate an exciting year as we collectively continue to foster a community of excellence.


District Wellness Policy
No more cupcakes in the classroom...

“A Wellness Policy is an important tool for parents, educational agencies and school districts in promoting student wellness, preventing and reducing childhood obesity, and assuring that school meal nutrition guidelines meet the minimum federal school meals standards. It contains goals specifically for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity, and other school based activities that promote student wellness.” -USDA

May I still bring treats for the class on my child’s birthday or general classroom celebration?
