Dear Bacich Parents,

In this strange time of such separation and distance, I find it so ironic that we need one another more than ever to bridge this unsettled time in our country's history.

I have often admired the many beautiful and innocent faces of our young children at Bacich, who are so full of promise and hope for a bright and happy future. Those of us who have worked with them every day, feel a sense of protection, a sense of optimism that they will be able to fulfill their dreams, and a sense of hope that someday each of them will live the life they desire and deserve.

This last week reminded me that now more than ever, we need to encourage our students and remind them of their potential and promise. I want our students to know that our children will each have the same opportunities as the friend who stands next to them in chorus or a peer who sits next to them solving math problems. I want to know that the world will welcome each of them for who they are and not judge them for the color of their skin, the clothes they wear or the road they have traveled to be where they are now.

As the leader of our special school, I ask you to join me in giving strength, support, and hope to each and every child in our communities and in our world. They want what we want —a chance to be their best self and have equal opportunities to reach the heights of whatever they set out to accomplish.

Thank you,

Sally Peck
Bacich Principal
