Mr. Saunders' Message 12/2

Baucom Parents and Guardians,

This is Principal Brian Saunders with this week’s Sunday Kickoff Message.  Please pardon my voice this week; a nice little chest cold has settled in but I think I’ll make it. It’s hard to believe the calendar has turned over to December.  We have three 5-day school weeks in front of us this month, culminating in the early-release day on Friday, December 21stfor Winter Break.  Students, after the Winter Break, will return to school on Thursday, January 3rd.

I want to thank all of you that made it out for the Parent Literacy Night last Thursday.  It was a huge success.  We will be working on getting the presentations up on our website as soon as possible.

Speaking of our website, it is my primary focus with this week’s message.  We have loaded math resources for parents onto our website so that you guys have a place to go to both better understand the quote-unquote “new math” and find resources that can help with math homework.  On the Baucom website, run your mouse over the Academics and Programs tab at the top and then scroll down to Math Resources for Parents and click it. Then on the lefthand side of the next page, click on Parent Resources.  There you will find resources by grade-level unit and Wake County math videos via a YouTube link.  I hope you find these items useful moving forward.

Looking ahead to next week on Tuesday the 11th, we will have our December PTA meeting at 6:30pm and the Winter Music Concert will be in the cafetorium at 7pm.  We hope you can make it!

Thank you and keep flying high Aviators!
