    Weekly Announcements: 

    Hello Bach Families!

    We have some exciting events taking place this week at our school.

    Tardiness to School

    As you know, our first bell rings at 8:47 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.

    Kindergarten Round-up

    This Thursday, February 9th, from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM, we will host the class of 2030 for kindergarten round up.  We will begin in the multi-purpose room. Students will then have an opportunity to visit kindergarten classrooms and then take a self-guided tour with their families. Please share this information with families in our area so they can become a part of our school community. 

    National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID)

    All parents are welcome to National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID), Monday, February 13th. Parents are welcome to visit classrooms from 8:45 AM – 10:30 AM. There will be coffee in the multipurpose room from 8:45 AM – 9:15 AM. Our all school assembly begins at 10:30 AM.
