September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and Basswood is hosting an event to raise awareness through The American Childhood Cancer Organization https://www.acco.org

Please see the details below:

What:  PJammin’ is a fun opportunity to wear their pajamas to school to raise awareness and to support kids with cancer.

Why…Because kids can’t fight cancer alone! Children with cancer often spend months, even years, living in their pajamas as they receive treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. During this time they frequently are absent from school, miss fun times with friends and many of their favorite sports or activities.

How: Staff and students that bring in $1 will the opportunity to wear their pajamas at school. (Cash only).


  • Collection of donations begins Monday, September 17th.
  • PJammin’ fun on Friday, September 21, 2018

IMPORTANT: This event is not really about raising money, we are RAISING AWARENESS and kids are asked bringing in a dollar. It may be that people feel generous about this cause or desire to do more, but that is not the focus of this Basswood event. There will be no pressure, no contests, no rewards…just PJammin’

We are excited to be using the online program for scheduling our upcoming Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences again this school year.  For your information, conference times each day are 7:30am to 8:30am and 3:40pm to 6:40pm.  The dates are listed below.

Basswood K-5 Fall Conferences:

Thursday, October 9
Thursday, October 11  
Monday, October 15  

You can begin scheduling conferences starting on Wednesday, September 26, at 9:00am. If you need an interpreter during your conference, please contact the office after you have scheduled your conference date/time.

At this time, you are to schedule a time with your child's homeroom teacher only.  If you have a student that receives EL services, you can also schedule a conference time with Tanya Duffy.  If you require time with another teacher or if you need an additional conference time with your homeroom teacher, please contact them directly.  To schedule your conference and choose a time slot, click on the link below, or enter this link in your internet browser:


This link will bring you to the Basswood Elementary conference Scheduler.  You will select your child's teacher and click submit.  you will then enter your child's name, parent name, and email address.  Once you select your conference time, you will be sent confirmation directly to the email address you provided.  In addition, you will receive an email reminder of your conference time two days prior to your conference.

For those parents with separate households, we ask that you register for one conference time with your child's classroom teacher.  Each parent can attend 10 minutes of the 20 minute conference time or the parents can attend the conference together.  Due to limited space and time, we can only have one conference per student.

If for some reason you need to change a conference tie, simply go back into the system using the link above and you will be given directions on how to choose a new time from available time slots.  You will be able to schedule your conference or make changes thru Friday, October 5.  After October 5, the program will not allow you to schedule any conference times and you will need to contact your child's teacher or the office for help.

If you do not have internet access, please contact the Basswood office at 763-494-3858 to schedule your conference time.  We look forward to seeing you during conferences.
