First Grade Publishing Party

Thank you to all of the families that were able to join us last Friday for our first grader’s publishing party. Our students were so excited to share their work with families and staff. First graders prepared for the event by researching their animal and synthesizing their learning into a book! Many of them practiced by reading their books to one another. It was awesome to see so many smiles!


Kindness Week Volunteers

We are currently looking for a parent volunteers to help brainstorm activities for the Bates School’s first KINDNESS WEEK (March 5-9). If you are interested in supporting this new event please contact Kate Heaton at katebarchheaton@gmail.com.

School Site Council/ School Parent Council

Our next School Site Council/ School Parent Council will be on Tuesday, February 13th, from 5:30-7:00pm. As always, childcare and dinner will be provided.

Before and Aftercare for K1 in 2018-2019?

If you are expecting to have a child in Bates K1 next year and are interested in sending him or her to the YMCA before and/or after-school program, please email jocmarshall@gmail.com .With enough K1 family interest, the YMCA may be open to enrolling 4-year-olds for the 2018-2019 school year.

Lost and Found

Our lost and found is filling up on the first floor by the cafeteria. If you find that your child is missing a sweater, scarf, hat, or another article of outerwear, please have them check the lost and found. As done in past years, we will donate leftover clothing from the lost and found.

Family Culture Night is March 8

Family Culture Night is BACK! Please save the date of Thursday, March 8 from 5:30-7:30pm, for an evening celebrating Bates School families’ favorite foods, music, games, dress and more. Look for more information in your child’s backpack soon. If anyone is interested in being on a committee to help out with Family Culture Night, please contact co-organizers Meg Skaar at megskaar@gmail.com and Kristen Bonstein at kristenbonstein@gmail.com.
