    Weekly Update 3/12/21
    Posted on 03/18/2021

    Dear Families,

    Like you, I am just hearing the news from Governor Inslee about the re-opening of schools and wondering what the specifics of this will mean for all of us. We will be in communication as soon as we know more details. In the meantime, here is a quote and updates for this week:

    “The new dawn blooms as we free it. For there is always light if only we’re brave enough to see it, if only we’re brave enough to be it.”

    – Amanda Gorman

    Speaking of light – don’t forget, it’s Daylight Savings time this weekend. (Spring forward).

    YOU-ME-WE-TOGETHER!
    GO BEES!
    Carla Holmes, Principal
    Megan Parker, Assistant Principal

    Upcoming Assemblies

    • Community Assembly- Tuesday, March 30th 9AM (links coming next week)

    Virtual Recess

    Virtual Recess has been going so well, we are ready to start adding a few more days! For our 4th/5th grade students we have learned that they really want to use breakout rooms, and 15 minutes is just not enough time. We have decided to give them a longer period of time on Wednesday so they are able to connect with their peers. Below is the updated schedule.

    Tuesday
    K/1- 12:05-12:20
    2/3-12:25-12:40

    Wednesday
    4/5- 12:05-12:55

    Thursday
    K/1- 12:05-12:20
    2/3-12:25-12:40

    In Person Update

    What we currently know is that SEA and the district are still bargaining. So far return dates have been scheduled for students who receive intensive special education services.

    No dates have been set for K-1 at this time.

    Helping Hive: A Community Pantry

    The Helping Hive, a pantry stocked with basic necessities (toiletries and household supplies) is now accessible to Bagley families Monday-Friday 8am-2pm in the front entryway of the school. Need something? Take something!

    To support the Helping Hive, donated toiletries and household items may be dropped off at the school or ordered through our Amazon wish list. You may also contribute to a parent initiated PayPal pool toward the purchase of $25 Kroger gift cards that will go directly to Bagley families to buy groceries and other needed items.

    If you have questions, ideas or would like to get involved in pantry and family support work, please contact Regina Thornton.
