A Message from Mr. Gualtieri

Bailey Lake Families,



The school year is off to an exciting start! We have transitioned well from a summer to school schedule and changes in routines. As always, support to your student during their learning journey this year is appreciated. It was great to see the many families that attended our Partnership Night. Our teachers and staff are looking forward to the many learning opportunities that will occur throughout this school year. Thanks to the PTA for providing the many enrichment events that compliment the learning that occurs in the classroom. The students are staff are fortunate to have such tremendous support from our families!
