Bagley Monday’s Message

Bagley Families,

We all looked great in our new school shirts, for our assembly this morning. We want to congratulate our students for being such good sports and doing their best at this morning’s March Madness staff vs. student basketball tournament. It was a CLOSE game, but the staff won by 4 points! Maybe next year, students!
This past week the district sent letters to some families if their child qualified for Advanced Learning (AL) or Highly Capable (HC) designations. The district weighs multiple factors in this qualification including:

  • Teacher and other buildings staff recommendations
  • Parent recommendations
  • Assessment scores

If your child qualified, their designation will include more depth of programming in math and reading and increased options for extension activities. Students are offered these enrichment opportunities in class, as built into a teacher’s unit planning. Please let me know if you have additional questions about these designations or services.

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.
