    Weekly Announcements: 2-27-17

    Hello Bach Families!

    We have some exciting events taking place this week at our school.

    Tardiness to School

    As you know, our first bell rings at 8:44 AM. One of the most valuable skills a student can learn comes from taking responsibility for arriving at school every day on time. This skill can easily be accomplished and will transfer as a valuable asset for the future.

    One of the most important times of the school day is in the morning. This is the time when important school news is announced, teachers define the plans for the day, and instructional goals are reviewed and set. The whole tone of a child’s day is set in the first part of the day. We ask for your support in helping your child learn habits that will help him/her be successful at school and throughout life.

    After the second bell, students must use the Jefferson Street entrance. To begin their school day promptly, staff and students will not be present to let students in at any door on 5th Street after the second bell.

    Please remember it is never okay to park your car, leave your car, or sit idle in your car, in the pull through lane on 5th Street.  Pull as far forward as possible.  Even if your child enters the doors at Jefferson/5th, pull forward as far as possible toward Liberty.  Thank you for receiving reminders from staff and other parents with patience, knowing we’re all looking out for student safety.

    Art Night

    Bach’s first Art Night was a huge success!  Thank you to our student and teacher artists for displaying your artwork for the rest of us to enjoy.  Thank you to our parent volunteers for the impressive event.  For sure this will become an annual favorite!

    Planning for 2017-2018

    Believe it or not, we are already in the planning stages for next school year.  We’ve hosted our Kindergarten Round Up and we are making plans for the fall.  In the coming days, please look for an email from me with a survey regarding your intentions for next year.  Will your family be returning to Bach?  With our school nearing capacity, it’s helpful to have as close of an accurate count as possible.  Do you have neighbors with an incoming K student?  Please encourage those families to register now for fall. 

    Cold Weather Gear

    We have to trade in our flip flops for snow boots this week.  Please send your child to school each day with the appropriate clothing to keep him/her warm and dry outside at recess.  We will always go outside unless it is zero degrees or the wind chill is zero degrees.  Boots, hats, gloves, snow pants, and coats are a must for our sloppy playground. 

    Free Hearing and Vision Screening with Washtenaw County Public Health

    Hearing and vision screening is required by the Michigan Public Health Code.  It is available free from Washtenaw County Public Health.  All children starting kindergarten, preschool, or Head Start must have their hearing and vision tested BEFORE starting school.  Office appointments are available May-August.  Please call (734) 544-6786 to schedule.
