Bagley’s Monday Message

Bagley Families,

This week we look forward to engaging our community by hosting prospective families and offering school tours. Students from our student council are acting as tour guides to show their pride and knowledge of Bagley with families. Our student council are also learning more about other student’s experiences by creating interview questions for students in younger grades. They want to know more about how younger students feel about friendships at school and what they need to learn best.
The salmon eggs that have been donated to Bagley by a native tribe for are thriving. They are in the alevin stage, hatching from their eggs with tons of wiggling tails! It has been a treat to watch their growth.

In Partnership,
Angela Clement
