Dr. Saunders' Message 020220

Baucom Parents & Guardians,

This is Principal Saunders with this week’s Sunday Message to kickoff the month of February. I’m sending this a bit earlier than usual, given the rather huge sporting event occurring in a few hours.

This week, we’ve got PTA Spirit Night Thursday evening, anytime between the hours of 4 and 8pm, at Panera Bread in Beaver Creek Commons.

Report cards for the 2nd Quarter of the school year go home this Friday, February 7th, so be on the lookout for those, going into the weekend.

PTA Science Expo & STEAM Night is just around the corner on February 11th, just after the PTA meeting.  The PTA meeting is at 6pm in the Media Center and Expo STEAM Night will follow thereafter, around 6:30pm.  Students participating this year will present their science projects to visitors in the gym, while the cafetorium will be alive with science fun with the Mad Science group and STEAM activities through local corporate and university partners. We will even have a demonstration by our very own LEGO Robotics team in the cottage behind the 4th & 5th grade building. Mark your calendars for this fun night on February 11th. 

Our 2nd Quarter Awards Ceremonies are scheduled for Wednesday, February 12th:  Kinder, 1st grade, and ECS classes will be at 12:30pm, 2nd and 3rd grade at 1:30pm, and 4th and 5th grade at 2:30pm. Reminder that, due to limited space, this event each quarter is limited to parents or guardians only. In addition, siblings must remain in their classroom rather than coming to their siblings’ assembly. Thank you for your understanding.

Lastly, parents, has it been a while since you’ve seen Johnny’s blue coat or Jess’s purple water bottle? If so, we’ve got a whole new round of lost and found items ready for perusal outside the cafeteria. You can look if you come to eat lunch with your Aviator or we can provide access at other times. You can also encourage your child to take a look during their daily lunch period. The deadline for pickup this time around is Feb. 14th.

Please see additional reminders in the emailed version of this message and may each of you have #blueskiesahead this week!



  • This week is National School Counselor Week and we love our School Counselor, Ms. Abby Spencer. Feel free to express your appreciation for all the great work she does for our Aviators.
  • Looking ahead, there is NO SCHOOL February 17th for President’s Day, nor February 18th for a Teacher Workday.
  • And, it’s going to be here before you know it! The enormous, larger-than-life, fun-for-all-ages PTA Game Night & Silent Auction is scheduled this year for Friday, March 6th. First-time Baucom parents – you do not want to miss this family night.  There’s Bingo fun and tons of really great items to bid on, so mark your calendars now for March 6th.
