Today was also CONSTITUTION DAY across America

Classrooms throughout America gave lessons about our Constitution. Today at Baker, we learned the Constitution is a set of rules for our country. Just like we have rules in the classroom and rules at school, there are rules for our country!

Pictures Were Taken This Past Week At Baker For All Students

It's Not Too Late!!! Families can still order school pictures. Parents will get a "2nd chance notice email" with a proof of their child's picture and their own unique code to use if families want to place an order. Visit the attached Interstate link for more information. http://www.inter-state.com/myordercode.

Last Call - DESPERATE FOR CLOTHING

The Baker office is in desperate need of extra clothing in the office. We are completely out of pants/shorts/legging for both boys and girls. We still have a sufficient amount of undies. (No shirts please). If you are cleaning out those closets and have clothing your child has outgrown - Sizes 6-14 - please consider donating items to the Baker office.


*NOTE - It is very important that you send extra clothing to school in your child's backpack in case of an accident. We will be calling parents to come get their child if the student has a bathroom accident. At this time we have nothing for students to change into if an accident occurs.

Important Notice From The Bus Garage

A note from the Transportation Department

The transportation department will NOT be able to allow friends to ride home with students due to the full capacity of our buses. Notes will not be accepted.


Job Openings

WUS is still short two bus drivers for routes (WUS will train you!) - please apply at transportation@waylandunion.org Express interest to Transportation Director, Tim Washburn.
