Hello Bach Families!
Tardiness to School
As you know, our first bell rings at 8:44 AM. One of the most valuable skills a student can learn comes from taking responsibility for arriving at school every day on time. This skill can easily be accomplished and will transfer as a valuable asset for the future.
One of the most important times of the school day is in the morning. This is the time when important school news is announced, teachers define the plans for the day, and instructional goals are reviewed and set. The whole tone of a child’s day is set in the first part of the day. We ask for your support in helping your child learn habits that will help him/her be successful at school and throughout life.
After the second bell, students must use the Jefferson Street entrance. To begin their school day promptly, staff and students will not be present to let students in at any door on 5th Street after the second bell.
M-Step M-Step testing begins this week for our 5th grade students. Please do everything you can to have your student in school and on time for testing days. Students do much better when they test with their peers in their normal setting. A good breakfast and healthy snack help, too. How can you help your child prepare? See the attached flyer from MDE for some great tips. Remember, attending school (and getting to school on time) matters. Tests reflect children’s overall knowledge and achievement. Missing school means missing instruction.
