    Weekly Update 10/23/20
    Posted on 11/02/2020

    Dear Daniel Bagley Families,

    Thank you for your continued partnership as we continue to navigate the remote learning experience. I know this is not easy, but we will get through this by remembering to reach out when we have questions and working together to solve challenges.

    Here are a few updates for this week:

    Panorama Pulse Surveys – The district is gathering input on remote learning from families, staff and students. You may have already received an email with a link to a short survey. We will also be administering short surveys with our 3rd-5th grade students next week on Monday and Tuesday.

    Staffing update- Due to increased enrollment above last year’s projections we have been allocated an additional teacher to our staff. We are pleased to welcome Emma Tomsett. Prior to coming to Bagley, she worked at Wedgewood and North Beach Elementary. Emma will be working as an Academic Interventionist with our 3rd-5th students.

    November Community Assembly – is coming up on Tuesday, November 10th at 9am. Be looking for a link coming soon. In the meantime, please send us your current pictures.

    PTA updates:
    We only have 3 more days left for our Direct Give Campaign! We have raised $31,751.00 (49% to goal) thanks to the 78 families that have generously contributed to support all students at Daniel Bagley. We are fundraising for this year's budget.
    Your donations will fund critical school resources and curriculum needs, including classroom supplies for remote learning, arts-music-health & fitness programming, food backpack program, staff subsidies for specialists and so much more.
    It's not too late to lend your support!
