Dear Bakersville Family and Friends, 

Another exciting school year is in full gear!  Our students and staff are busy learning, exploring and growing every day. The students are building their academic stamina and continuing their acclimation to their classroom communities. Report cards will be distributed on 12/20/17 in the Wednesday folders.

The second session of 21st Century is in full swing and with full attendance!  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 continue to focus 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. 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.  Please anticipate notices coming home after the New Year with regard to scheduling mid-year parent/teacher conferences.

Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you!

Ms. Josef
