May Message

Dear Bancroft Community,

May is here and I am hopeful that Mother Nature will treat us to some beautiful weather for the rest of the year! We are wrapping up state testing and our students need to get outside for fresh air and exercise! Speaking of state testing...I cannot tell you how proud I am of the hard working 3rd, 4th and 5th graders! Everyday they come to school ready to give their very best! We have noticed how hard they are trying and we appreciate your support in these efforts! Our 1st and 2nd graders have been WONDERFUL with showing support for our test takers and they have also been so respectfully quiet in the building!

You have probably already heard, but we are taking a very close look at our school goals in these last few weeks of school. The post pandemic reality of our school life is that we need to continually reinforce our expectations for respect, responsibility, safety and kindness. I hope that you are hearing about these great lessons and that you are also seeing these great goals in your home as well.

Be well,

Mrs. Leah A. McComsey

Your Proud Principal

Volunteer Clearances

As we slowly re-open and add activities, we need volunteers to make these events happen! Several PTO events will need your support as well!! Please be sure to have your clearances in 2 weeks prior to the date of the event so that you can get “cleared” at the District Office. Questions? Give Mrs. Olmedo a call in our main office!

Volunteers can obtain their clearances by clicking on this link and following the helpful links: https://www.kcsd.org/for-parents/volunteer-clearances-and-forms/

Update on QuickTables goal

If you have been reading my newsletters all year (I hope so!!) you will know that we are tracking the amazing progress of our students as they complete their QuickTables! Check out the progress that we have made in a month!! Be sure to:

*Ask your child: What QuickTable are you working on? What percentage have you completed? What is your goal this week?

Congratulations to the many students that have already completed all of the tables (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division!)! #BancroftProud
