Principal Grigg’s 8/1/19 Message

Hello Bulldog Families!

We welcome our newest Bulldogs to the Baileywick family and are looking forward to seeing everyone in a few short weeks! I hope you find the information below helpful in preparing your family for an exceptional new school year. You can expect to receive another message from me on August 18.  

BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION ON WEBSITE: Supply lists for all grade levels, school calendar, parent handbook and kindergarten information letter in both English and Spanish have been posted to Baileywick’s website.  The link can be found here. Please read the entire Baileywick Student/Parent Handbook, as it contains information that has been updated for the new school year.

POPSICLES IN THE PARK:  Join us for an afternoon of fun and sweet treats on  Thursday, August 15 from 4:00-6:00PM at Baileywick Park.  The park entrance is located just past the school entrance towards Creedmoor Rd.

GRADES 1-5 MEET THE TEACHER: Please reserve Thursday, August 22 from 4:00-5:30PM for an informal drop-in event where students can find out who their teacher will be and will have an opportunity to explore their new classroom.  Class rosters will be posted in the gym at 4:00pm. Parents will have an opportunity to acquire a carpool number, set up a lunch account, learn about bus routes, register to volunteer and join the PTA. 

KINDERGARTEN INFORMATION: All families of kindergarteners should have received a letter with beginning of year information specific to kindergarten students, including your child’s assigned staggered entry day.  If you did not receive a letter, please contact the school office for your child’s entry date. A copy of the letter can be found here.  

KINDERGARTEN OPEN HOUSE: We will host our second open house and play date on Wednesday, August 21 at 9:00-9:45AM. This event is designed for families who were unable to attend the event in May. All incoming families, however, are welcome to attend, get answers to questions and connect with other families.

BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL: Baileywick is pleased to offer Before School and Afterschool Care onsite again this year!  If you plan to enroll your child, please submit your forms as soon as possible, as we staff based on enrollment.  Fees will be collected on August 26, the first day of school.  Registration and program information can be found here.
