Nectar News

The Nectar News is shared with students every Monday to educate and celebrate Bagley student news, identity, and expectations. Check your emailed update for the link.


Each week we share appreciations for our staff and adult community at Bagley in the Nectar News video. We would love it if families wanted to take some time to share a shout out at this link. Bagley Appreciations

Donation Requests

Afterschool Snacks:

We have about 15 hard-working Bagley students that stay after school for extra learning support time, and they could really use some snacks to help keep them fueled while they work! If you are able to help by donating pre-packaged snacks, please Sign up to donate prepackaged snacks.

District Advanced Learning timeline and Information

This week the district shared our timeline for Advanced Learning Eligibility. If your child qualifies you will receive their eligibility letter by Jan 24. If your child did not qualify you can appeal the process during this Appeal’s window from January 24th through February 9th.

The process for identifying student eligibility is part of our Universal Screening which uses multiple data sources to identify students for AL or HC services. The data sources may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Fall assessments from the current academic year; 
  • Demonstrated performance in the classroom as assessed by educators; 
  • Strengths, talents, and interests reported by educators and parents/guardians;
