12.12.22 Bagley’s Monday Message

Bagley Families,

Happy Monday Families. It is hard to believe we will be out of school for over two weeks. We will miss our students! We hope your winter break goes well! Please look at our school updates below.

Nectar News

Every Monday teachers will show the Nectar News to share upcoming events, appreciations, and to educate and celebrate varied cultures and school expectations. Check your email/texts for the link.

Volunteer Needed:

We are looking for a Girls On the Move Site Liaison. The site liaison recruits additional volunteers to coach the 3rd- 5th grade Girls on the Move program. This will be hosted at the Bagley campus. The groups meet for 90 minutes twice a week with 8-15 students in a group. Bagley hosted this program a few years ago, and we would love to have this back on campus for our students. Please visit this site to learn more: https://www.gotrpugetsound.org/startsite

Choir

We are lucky enough to have Ms. Miller-Klein organize a group of 4th and 5th graders to participate in choir each Wednesday morning. Bagley Choir is made up of fourth and fifth grade volunteers. We meet 8-8:30 on Wednesday mornings, in the music room. Our goals are threefold:

  1. Learning healthy singing technique.
  2. Community Building.
  3. Preparing music to share with others.

There will be another opportunity to sign up for choir when we return to school in January. If you have questions, please email Ms. MK. Lamillerklei@seattleschools.org

Attendance/Late Arrivals

In October, about 14% of our students arrived late to school. In November that percentage jumped to 17% of our school. We know our school day starts early! Please help us get this percentage to decrease for the months of December and January. Student days start with social emotional and learning tasks that everyone benefits from. Thanks for your extra efforts to get your children here by 7:55 AM.

Snow Days

Our school has a plan for attending class on Inclement Weather or Snow Days. Today, we will be sending a personalized letter home to all families. Also, students will be coming home with their devices for ONE NIGHT ONLY to practice logging into a Seesaw assignment from home. Your classroom teacher will communicate further details.


Do you need internet? Affordable Connectivity Program for Family Home Internet Access

DoTs is highly recommending that students and families in need of internet access apply to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) www.ACPBenefit.org.
A household is eligible for the ACP if the household income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, or if a member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:
• Based on your household income
• If you or your child or dependent participate in certain government assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, or other programs
Hotspots will be made available, in limited capacity, to eligible students at the start of the 2022-23 school year. More information is available on the MySPS. Student Device Support webpage.
