It's hard to believe that we have less than 3 months left in this school year. So how are we doing? Our aim is to impress you at every step of the way. We're expecting our teachers and staff to respond to emails, phone calls, and Dojo messages within 24 hours. We're expecting our teachers to reach out to you with positive messages about how your child is performing. And we expect our school to continuously seek ways to improve how we do what we do every single day.
Recently, we rearranged the furniture in the front office in order to better welcome you into our building. We recently established a Dance/Step Team in the wake of launching basketball games and cheerleading last month. We also launched a writing club. What's coming in the future? We would like to continue to expand our extra-curricular offerings that consistently give students a reason to say why they love coming to school. Also, we're hoping to continue to grow our STEAM resources. Our Discovery Team is working to finalize a new 3-Bin Compost System and to construct our 3rd green house. And we've been applying for grants to get even more STEAM resources. Our goal is to provide experiences to our students and to expose them to resources that will continue to open doors for them in the future and help to transform our community. It's no small feat! But with your support, we can make this happen. Read below to find out more about how you can support your child's education by joining our School Council or PTA Leadership.

February was a big month for the Baggett counseling department! Thank you to the Baggett community for making our Food Drive and Palentine’s fundraiser so successful.
Here’s what we covered in February class lessons:
K- Career Exploration
1- Being Your Best Self
2- Love for Self & Others
4 & 5- Compassion & Gratitude
This month we are moving into our career lessons! Talk to your students about your career, their interests, and reach out to the counselors if you are interested in speaking at our Career Day in May.
Excused absence- personal illness, serious illness or death in family, medical or legal appointments, observed religious holidays.
Any time your student is absent, communicate the absence and reason with the classroom teacher via dojo, email, or a written note. This helps us stay updated with our students and document absences correctly. If a note or third-party excuse is not provided to the school, the absence will be regarded as unexcused.

Message from our Family Center
Children make choices every day. Sometimes, they make bad ones. They choose to watch TV after school. Then they have to stay up late to finish a math assignment. Or they choose to tell a lie, and they have to live with the consequences later.
