Mr. Saunders' Message 042119

Baucom Parents & Guardians,

This is Principal Saunders with this week’s Sunday Kickoff Message.  First, I hope everyone has enjoyed their Spring Break so far.  We’ve got one more day off tomorrow and then we welcome our awesome Aviators back this Tuesday!

Parents – please take about ten minutes to complete this year’s parent survey. I’ve posted the direct link to the survey in the Aviator Messages section of our main page.

Spring Pictures are this Wednesday, April 24th.  You can pre-pay for a class picture now, while  individual pictures of your child will go home to you as a preview in early May. 

To our parent volunteers – we sent home an RSVP request before Spring Break for our annual Volunteer Celebration Breakfast.  It’s this Friday, April 26th, from 8:30 to 10:30am. A huge THANK YOU to all of you who are able and willing to volunteer.  You are big reason why Baucom is the best school in the tri-county area.

A great opportunity to volunteer is this Saturday! This Saturday, from 9am to 1pm, is our annual School Beautification Day!  Through our partnership with Apex Baptist Church, come and help us clean up the campus, spread some mulch, or maybe even plant some flowers. Be sure to bring your garden gloves, shovels, or rakes with you!

The night before, on Friday night, is our next PTA Spirit Night and this time around it’s at Sweet Spoons.  From 4pm on, go and enjoy some fro-yo over on W. Williams St. and support Baucom!

Parents interested in Single Subject Acceleration, or “SSA,” for their child – there is information on our website within the Gifted and Talented tab.  Parents or teachers can nominate students to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts OR Mathematics. Students may only be nominated and assessed for SSA in ONE subject area. The SSA nomination window for Baucom begins Tuesday, the 23rd, and runs through May 6th.  The nomination window officially closes at the end of the school day on May 6th and late nominations cannot be accepted.  SSA nomination forms are now available in the front office via Ms. Headlee.

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