Dear Babcock Families,


I hope your child has enjoyed the first two weeks of school.  I want to personally thank you for your commitment to bring your children to school.  We are committed to teaching rigorous content in the core academic areas and valuing music, art, and technology.  We will make certain your children will become confident, competent, independent learners. Additionally, we work to create a supportive climate in which every child’s talents and interests are nurtured. I expect your child to be at school every day.


Classroom Treats

Parents will only be allowed to bring healthy treats or donate classroom supplies for the celebration  of a birthday.  Cupcakes, sweets, and lollipops are no longer allowed.  This new policy takes effect August 22, 2016.
