Dear Bakersville Family and Friends, 

Another exciting school year is off to a wonderful start!  Our students and staff are busy getting back into the rituals and routines of the school day. The students are building their academic stamina and getting acclimated to their new classroom communities. 

The first session of 21st Century starts on Monday September 18th. Please be sure you received confirmation of your student being enrolled. The program will run from 2:45pm-5pm after school this year. If parents are in need of before school programming, the morning program runs everyday from 7:30am-8:15am with a focus on academic support and enrichment. 

This year we are focused on growing our oral language development. Every month a new "Conversation Calendar" will be sent home. Please encourage your child/children to do the daily activities and initial in the corresponding box when the activity is completed. The students will receive rewards for completing the activities, have fun,  and we will see their vocabulary and oral language grow and expand! 

Weekly homework templates should be going home with your child/children by now. You will be asked to practice reading/math or a combination of activities nightly with your child. Your support and practice at home will only increase your child or children's chances for success! 

As always thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work with you and your children this year. It takes a village to raise a child and we are more effective when we work together to help our children to grow and learn. We look forward to seeing you all at Open House on 09/21 from 6pm-7pm. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you!

Ms. Josef
