Springtime Updates

Kids are busy bees working hard with teachers to build reading and math skills.

To Educate, Inspire, and Empower Students!

Thank you for making the start of the school year run so smoothly.

Welcome to the start of the 2015-2016 School Year! We look forward to working as a team with each family to create a positive and successful year for our students. Your involvement is so important. Please remember to sign and return all beginning of the year forms.

Throughout the year, please alert the office and teachers with new contact information, or health and family updates. Remember to send in a note if there will be a change in how your child will be going home.

Community Involvement: Our third graders received backpacks filled with school supplies from Lackawanna College. This is the 6th year Bancroft is participating in the Rocket Program with the college.

Back to School Night is September 22, 2015, from 6:00-7:30. We can't wait to meet you! We have a terrific night planned. We will be using our new Reading and Science curriculum which is Common Core aligned. Additionally, teachers will share Everyday Mathametics upates. Remember, nightly homework is critical and your support at home will help reinforce what was taught in school that day.

Please check out the school calendar monthly for updates.

Please don't hesitate to call us or schedule a meeting to discuss any concerns.

Thank you.
