All Things Baker!
It has been so amazing to see all of your kiddos working hard and getting back into the swing of school. We have wasted no time diving into to all of the new learning. Thank you all, also, for signing up to bring your student in for Assessment Day. It is such an excellent opportunity for our teachers to have that one on one time with their students. I cannot wait to see everyone Thursday for Curriculum Night. I love seeing families experiencing a day in the life of their student.
I wanted to impress upon you all one more time how thankful I am for your support and kindness as we start the school year. I have said it before but it is so true, we are a partnership! Together we will continue to create an environment where all of our kiddos feel safe and where they can learn and grow. Someone sent me the picture below and I think it expresses a perfect sentiment! Please continue to reach out with any concerns, questions, and/or suggestions!
Thank you all for your support and at Baker Elementary we believe In a World Where You Can Be Anything . . . Be Kind!
Helping Kids Navigate in a Social Media Jungle!
Following recent town hall meetings, parents have expressed interest in a monthly “roundtable” forum to learn and share, working together in the complicated journey of parenting. Parents-R- Partners (PRP) is a no-cost, open, safe place to discuss real-life topics that impact our children, our schools, and our families. We are blessed to have three local family counseling professionals who will offer their expertise in brief presentations/ video vignettes on pertinent topics and open discussion, giving practical helpful solutions. There will be different and relevant topics each month.
This month’s topic: “Helping kids navigate in a social media jungle”
HoneyLu’s Coffee kiosk is on-site for refreshments. We look forward to you joining us to make a real difference and encourage you to spread the word to your friends w/ kids & teens.
Time: 6:30-8:00 PM
Place: Large Conference Room at Fuse Dynamic Workspace 130 N. Preston Rd. (behind Ernesto’s Mexican Restaurant).
