Dear Parents,

Our school would not be the outstanding place that it is without the time, support, and energy shared by our parent volunteers – even during this unusual time. We have an incredible group of parent volunteers in the Bacich community!

One group of volunteers, whom you may not be aware of are our School Site Council committee members. The School Site Council includes teachers and parents who meet monthly throughout the school year. The purpose of the committee is to provide a structure for shared decision-making within the school community. The Site Council hears regularly about the inside workings of our school, they ask questions and make suggestions related to targeted areas of the school. In addition to academic interests, the School Site Council is often actively involved in parent engagement and safety issues, and they frequently relay information to and from the parent community. This small team asks thoughtful and challenging questions based on how we can best serve the whole school community.

This year’s parent members include: Eric Schafer, Amy Bornstein, Christina Chan, Lissette Fernandez-Hilson, Scott Hershman, Estelle Dick, and Holly Meyers. These volunteers are elected by our school community to serve a two-year term, and they represent the interests of our school community.

It is time again to open the application process for four available positions on the School Site Council for 2020-2021. This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved in the school community. If you have questions about the School Site Council please contact me ( or the 2019-2020 School Site Council chairperson Amy Bornstein (

The 2020-2021 application for Site Council membership is attached or may be completed online. Applications are due to Lynn Bartha ( by Wednesday, May 20th. All applicants are invited to share a brief summary of their interest and qualifications to serve on this committee, which we will post in the Parent Bulletin and Site Council webpage on Friday, May 22th. The school community will vote on the new Site Council members from May 25th-28th with results tallied on May 29th. New Site Council members will be invited to the June 1st Site Council meeting.

We belong to a school community where parents are interested, involved and truly care. There is no doubt that our children benefit because so many parents give so much.

Thank you,

Sally Peck
