Our fabulous Art Teacher, Mrs. Moreno, did an amazing job of displaying our Bailey student's beautiful art. Students will be spending the first 20-30 minutes of this week's art time taking a tour of the show. We sure have talented and creative Bailey Bobcats!

A Special Message From Our PTA

May 2-May 6 is Staff Appreciation Week!!

Here are some fun ways to honor our hard-working Bailey staff during Staff Appreciation Week, May 2-6:

Monday: Have your students bring their teacher a hand-written note or picture

Tuesday: Bring a flower for your teacher

Wednesday: Bring a treat for your teacher

Thursday: Bring a snack for your teacher

Friday: Bring a card, note, treat, or snack for any Specialist Teacher

 

Thank you notes- Another fun and supportive option would be to send a 'thank you' note email to your child's teacher or educators. We have many dedicated Bailey staff: Classroom teachers, special education teachers, specialists teachers (gym, media, art, music!), reading teachers, E.L. teachers, intervention teachers, paraprofessionals, health care specialist, and our custodians!

 

Gift card donations, in kind, for staff appreciation- We are asking for donations of gift cards for a staff raffle, if you are willing to donate a gift card of $5, $10, or $15 to a local store or vendor, that would be so appreciated! Gift cards can be brought in by students to the main office. Please bring these gift cards the week of April 26-29.

 

On behalf of the Bailey PTA we thank you for your support and time!

Volunteering at Bailey

Volunteering at Bailey

For 3rd trimester, we may be looking at the possibility of scheduling a field trip or potential in classroom volunteers. For volunteer possibilities please connect directly with your child's teacher. All volunteers must complete an application, and most will need to complete an updated background check. All volunteers at SoWashCo Schools must now apply online. You can create your new SoWashCo Schools volunteer profile online here and complete an updated background check.

 

 

Filling volunteer opportunities must be done with a pre-arranged appointment. All volunteers are expected to sign-in using the school visitor management system (Raptor™) upon arriving. For more information about district volunteer handbook, please visit: https://www.sowashco.org/get-involved/volunteer

Visitors

Visitors

As we move into 3rd trimester, though we are relaxing protocols within the school, we are still continuing to monitor the amount of visitors on a daily basis. If you have a pre-arranged appointment with a staff member or you need to stop by the office, we welcome you into the building. However at this time, we do not have availability for family members to eat lunch with their child or walk their child to class.
