Principal's Points to Ponder

Good Friday Baucom Families,

GUESS WHAT?!?!?   As a school family, we have been working hard to develop a thematic mascot that will allow us to bring a higher sense of collaboration and creativity to our new and rigorous initiatives.   Our “high flying” students are ready to “take off” as we begin the 2017-2018 school year.  Great things are happening at Baucom, and we look forward to helping our students “earn their wings” with our upcoming BYOD program, full implementation of the 4C’s, and Project Based Learning. 

We would like your feedback regarding changing our mascot from the Baucom Buddies to the A.V. Baucom Aviators with Buddy as our pilot.  Mr. Chapman is currently drafting a fabulous new piece of artwork that will serve as our new “BUDDY the AVIATOR!” 


Our guidance counselor, Lori Mathews, will soon be sending out a survey, because we truly value your opinion.  I will send everyone the link to the survey as soon as Ms. Mathews uploads it on our website.


THANK YOU ALL for taking the time to read my Principal’s Points to Ponder, and I look forward to going on this journey with each of you!
