Mr. Saunders' Message 031019

Baucom Parents and Guardians,

This is Principal Brian Saunders with this week’s Sunday Kickoff Message.

The PTA Silent Auction & Game Night is coming up this Friday, March 15th from 6-8pm. This is one of our biggest and most exciting nights at Baucom! The whole community is welcome to come play Bingo, enter raffles for some great prizes including a Nintendo Switch and kid’s bike, as well as bid on some great items at our silent auction. Our amazing sponsors have donated restaurant gift cards, weekly camps, orthodontic treatments, tickets to local sporting events, and so much more!!! I, as much as the next person, understand that the ACC tournament will be in full swing that evening, so we will also have one of our new, PTA-sponsored flat screen TVs playing the game that’s on at that time.  So come on out Friday night for this big spring fundraiser for Baucom and the PTA.

Parents – we love when you and other loved ones come in and eat lunch with your Aviator.  We want it to be a special time for you, with your child, so as a reminder, lunch is only with your child.  This not only allows you time with him or her, but it also helps protect students’ feelings if they are not chosen and provides protection from a potential allergy exposure.  We love having you here, though, and we know your Aviator does as well!

Next, parents, it isn’t Teacher Appreciation Week yet, but the North Carolina Education Lottery has an awesome way for you to show your appreciation for a teacher who has meant a lot to one of your children. Visit to nominate a teacher as a hero. The teacher and his or her school, if selected, will receive acknowledgment and a monetary award as a show of appreciation.

Last on this week’s list - Ms. Sweeney’s and Ms. Halsey’s 4th grade families – don’t forget about your field trip tomorrow!

Thank you Aviators and we wish each of you #blueskies this week!
