Hello Bach Families!
We have some exciting events taking place this week at our school.
As you know, our committee has been working hard to make our dismissal and arrival plan even safer. Our plan was presented at this month's PTO meeting and this month's coffee chat. This week, members of Ann Arbor Traffic and Safety Committee (TSC), along with AAPS staff, conducted a site review during dismissal. The TSC presented our plan to the Board on our behalf. They were impressed with and supportive of our plan. Our goal is to have signs on 4th and 5th switched by the New Year. We hope to implement the plan Monday, January 8th. I will keep our families posted on the progress.

Lost and Found
Our Physical Environment Committee has been working hard to make our school more inviting for guests, students, and families. Last week they moved the lost and found to a new location. It was housed in the front hallway and has been moved to the atrium, just outside the cafeteria. There is plenty of it, so please be sure to stop by and claim items. Please remember to write your child’s name (or initials) on EVERYTHING…boots, snow pants, lunch boxes, water bottles, coats, sweatshirts, etc. Volunteers look through the lost and found regularly and return items to students.
Bach’s book fair will be set up December 12th . Please shop December 13th, 14th, or 15 th. Students will create wish lists when they visit the fair with their class. You can shop from their lists.
