A Letter to Rising Kindergarten Families from Dr. Saunders

Rising Kindergarten Families,


We are excited to welcome each of you to Baucom Elementary. We know you may be nervous about this huge transition for your child, but we’re here to assure you that our team is the best around and your child’s safety, academic growth, and personal well-being are things we take seriously as certified professionals. We believe our communication with parents, our commitment to state curriculum standards, and our ability to build community are truly second to none. In other words, the journey you begin with us now will be a meaningful one for your new Aviator, opening up future opportunities that would not have been possible otherwise. 


As you prepare for this transition, we want to share with you a very special presentation that will aid your understanding of what lies ahead this August! You can access our Kindergarten Orientation presentation HERE or find it linked on the main page of our website.


Once you’ve spent some time with the Orientation presentation, we want you to have an opportunity to ask questions you have on your mind or that the presentation itself generates new for you. Our first Q & A Sessions of this season are scheduled for Wednesday, May 12th. You can drop into a Google Meet by clicking on the time that works best for you:






Please know that it will be a Q & A Session and not an Information Session. The information you need is contained in the presentation linked above. We will not be presenting the presentation live in these Q & A Sessions, but rather, we will be assisting with questions that still persist or have arisen. We will do additional sessions this Summer, as well as a session or two in Spanish, for any families not yet registered as of May 4th. 


Thank you for choosing Baucom. We know you have options and we love that you trust us with your little one. It’s going to be a memorable journey together and our Aviator Flight Crew can’t wait for takeoff! 


Most Sincerely,

Dr. Brian Saunders
