Bagley Monday Message

Bagley Families,

Family Action item (K–4th grade families only)

It’s the time of year when we are planning for the year ahead. Please use the green form coming home with your student today or the link below to complete this 1 minute question by May 1. This is to let us know if you are returning to Bagley ES. Having accurate enrollment numbers helps us when building classes and assigning staff to grade levels.

Multi-Age/Split Class Info

A few years ago, when Bagley transitioned from a partially Montessori school to a completely contemporary school the staff wanted to ensure that students were still able to access the many positive benefits of Montessori teaching. One of those benefits is mutli-age or split grade classes. While staff are continuing to imbed principles of Montessori teaching into their classrooms, as a building, we do not currently plan to shift to a multi-age school. Based on enrollment some classrooms will be split grade or multi age this coming year, and that is a practice happening district wide. Please reach out to me if you would like to learn more or discuss this further.

Thank you!

Thank you to our over100 family volunteers that have taken their time to support Bagley ES. We had handmade breakfast treats from staff and student decorated thank you cards for our volunteers that decorated our cafeteria for the Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast on Thursday. We’ll send the cards home with your children if you missed the event.

Progress Reports Available today

Your child’s progress reports for 2nd Semester are available on the The Source starting today. Please check here for a reminder on how to login in and view the Progress Report. Please contact the front office if you need a printed copy of your student’s progress report.

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.

Student Council wants our Bagley students to Spring into Action to support members of our community. We will be putting together Care Packs for Aurora Commons and making PBJ Sandwiches for Operation Night Watch, but we need your help! Please consider donating an item or two below and have your child drop them off on the black cart on the playground until Thursday, 4/27. Sign Up to make care packs for Operation Night Watch
Also, join us for the PTA Sponsored: Spring into Action Movie Night and Work Session (4/28, 6-8 PM in the Cafeteria) At Spring into Action Night we are planning to watch the Lorax and work on a variety of acts-of-service stations.

Lost and Found Reminder: Label your things!

Lost and Found would like to be sure everyone remembers to label all sweatshirts, jackets, lunch bags, etc. Please take a permanent marker and write your child’s initials or last name on the tags.
