Baker Elementary PTA is celebrating Exceptional Children’s Week March 5th – 9th, 2018.  The Exceptional Children’s Committee addresses the needs of diverse learners in the school community by fostering awareness of special education between the district, school, parents, and children.  Please, join us in celebrating our exceptional children and their educators throughout the week.

  • All Baker students will have the opportunity to participate in a school-wide banner celebrating Baker’s diversity.
  • Wednesday, March 7th, please”Spread the Word to End the Word.”  Teachers are encouraged to eliminate the “R-word” in their classrooms.  Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions.  Pledge with your family at http://www.r-word.org.
  • Thursday, March 8th, wear blue to show to show your pride for Baker’s diversity.
  • The media center will have books and media available on amazing individuals with disabilities.  Students have the opportunity to learn that everyone has the power to achieve, including individuals with:  Down Syndrome, Tourette’s Syndrome, Asperger’s, Autism, OCD, ADD, dyslexia, food allergies, and physical disabilities.

Box Tops are due Monday, February 26th!

Blog Image BoxTopsClipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our PTA. Each one is worth 10¢! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and send them to school in a bag or envelope.  Make sure to write your grade and teacher on the envelope.

It’s contest time!  The top 3 classes will earn a popcorn party and the teacher will receive a reimbursement up to $15 for media, supplies or recess equipment for their classroom!  Last spring, Ms. Boyee used her reimbursement to buy duck eggs for her students to hatch!  Turn in your Box Tops by October 20 to be counted in the Fall contest.

For more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to BTFE.com. Be sure to sign up as a member (it’s free!) so you can check out our school’s earnings details and get access to coupons and bonus offers.
