Extended Learing Time Update

on November 19, 2015 - 1:30pm

Mr. Vega announced last night at the Parent Council meeting that the Bates has been selected for Extended Learning Time beginning in Fall 2016. Beginning next school year, our school day will be 9:30am to 4:10pm.

 

While we are still gathering more information to share with families, we feel it is important to share updates with the community as we learn them.

 

Next week, we will sent out a survey in English and Spanish that will allow families to provide initial feedback and sign up to volunteer for our Extended Learning Time planning committee. An electronic version of this survey, in English, is already available here.

 

Please be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks. If you speak a language other than English or Spanish and are willing to translate this information, please reach out Mr. Vega directly.

First Day of Kindergarten - September 10

on September 9, 2015 - 11:35am

We are very excited to welcome our Kindergarten students to the Bates. All students should report to the playground beginning at 9:15am to meet and line up with their teacher. Those students who have breakfast at school should report to the cafeteria at 9:15 and then the playground. We will begin a whole school community meeting at 9:30 on the playground. After the community meeting, teachers will escort students to classrooms.

 

Students should not enter the building until they are escorted by their teacher. Parents are welcome to walk with teachers and students to classrooms, but only to drop off.  You will have the opportunity to meet your child's teacher and wish them a great first day on the playground and at the door to their classroom.

Contact Mr. Vega via e-mail if you have additional questions.
