    Weekly Update 3/5/21
    Posted on 03/15/2021

    Dear Families,

    As we come to the one-year mark of experiencing this pandemic and remote learning, I felt hope and encouragement from our students this week. During principal lunches I was truly inspired by their attitude of looking for opportunities despite challenges. I heard children recommending books to each other, sharing hobbies they have enjoyed having time to pursue (collecting shells, reading, baking, researching), showing their favorite stuffies (that also looked like comfort items – baby Yoda, etc.) and overall optimism that we are staying healthy and continuing to look for ways to connect while we are mainly in a virtual setting. AND… we are all very much looking forward to the day we can come together at our newly remodeled Bagley, to see one another and continue building our unified Hive together.

    GO BEES!

    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.
