Bagley’s Monday Message

Bagley Families,

It was such a joy to share in acts of service with our community last week. We worked together to make over 150 PBJ sandwiches and care packs for Operation Night Watch and Aurora Commons. A big shout out goes to our Student Council for their work on highlighting ways we could help our community at our assembly and during individual class presentations.
We are gearing up for many more fun events in May and June! Please look at the events 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.

K – 4th grade family Homework:

65% of families responded. Thank you! Please complete this one minute survey to let us know your plans for next year if you have not yet done so. It’s the time of year when we are planning for the year ahead. Having accurate enrollment numbers helps us when building classes and assigning staff to grade levels.

Do you have an old iPad that you would consider donating?

Our 3rd through 5th grade classrooms use iPads to translate textbooks and worksheets into a student’s native language if they are newcomers to the United States. We also use iPads in the classroom to help students talk by using the Conversation feature on Google Translate. If you have an iPad to donate we would put it to use!
