Dear Bakersville Family and Friends, 

Happy New Year! We are more than half-way through the school year!  Our students and staff continue to be busy learning, exploring and growing every day. They continue to build their academic stamina and their acclimation to their classroom communities. Progress reports will be distributed on 01/24/18 in the Wednesday folders.

The third session of 21st Century afterschool program begins on 01/29/18.  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 note mid-year parent/teacher conferences will be held during the 2nd and 3rd weeks in February. Stay tuned for more info!!!

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

Ms. Josef
