Dear Parents,

Bacich would not be the outstanding school that it is without the parent volunteer support that we have in our district. From Fun Lunch to carline duty, to planting with the children in the school gardens, to shelving books in the library or organizing special events for our students to experience – the generosity of time and energy that parents share at Bacich is difficult to top. Our children truly benefit because so many of our parents give and care so very much.

This is the time of year when we reflect on the many, many hours that our parent volunteers have given to our school and some of the amazing programs we are able to deliver because of your efforts.

On Thursday, June 6, 2019, we invite our parent volunteers to join us for a Parent Volunteer Tea from 8:30 to 10 a.m. We will meet in the Community Center for a grade level thank you, and then we will adjourn to the quad area to enjoy breakfast snacks provided by our staff to honor each of you.

For those of you who might be new to our school this year or if you are simply curious about other volunteer opportunities, I invite you to get in touch with our PTA. There are many volunteer opportunities available for those who are interested in becoming more involved at Bacich next year. Positions range from larger commitments to smaller and more manageable positions.

The opportunity to work with other parents in our school community is a wonderful and fun way to make new friends. Many of the mothers and fathers you meet while your children are in elementary school are people you will discover to be lifelong friends. Volunteering is also a terrific opportunity to understand more about our school.

We belong to a school community where parents are interested, involved, and truly care. I thank each of our volunteers who have stepped up during the 2018-2019 school year to help make Bacich such a special school.

We look forward to honoring you on June 6th!
