Mrs. Voxland’s welcome back for Bobcat parents & students
August 10, 2015
Greetings Baldwin Creek Students and Families:
It is with great pleasure that I write to welcome you and your student(s) to the 2015-16 school year at Baldwin Creek Elementary. The faculty and staff are busy preparing the school and classrooms for an adventuresome year of learning and growth. It’s time to get excited about new opportunities and fresh starts! Our theme this year is “On the Road to Learning” and we look forward to hearing about your summer adventures, getting caught up with returning families, and meeting our newest Bobcats.
New to our school district this year is online registration. Whether you are new or returning this year, all families need to register online their children. You can register in the comfort of your home if you have Internet by going to http://www.landerschools.org/Enrollment, or you can register at Central Office (known as the old Starrett building). We continue to iron out a few bumps, as with anything new, but we hope this is a positive change and saves parents’ time from having to complete forms with the same information multiple times if you have more than one child.
Here are some important dates for beginning of the year events:
- August 19 8:05 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. First Day of School!!! Full Day
August 26 8:05 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. Wednesday Early Out (WEO)
This will occur every Wednesday for the school year.
- September 1 5:30-7:00 Open House
Baldwin Creek begins daily at 8:05 a.m. and dismissal is at 3:15 p.m. Supervision on the playground begins at 7:50. Staff will be outside welcoming and assisting students to their exterior wing door when the bell rings at 8:05. The cafeteria will open at 7:45 for students who wish to purchase breakfast. Our parking lot in front of the school is available for drop-off and pick-up times plus the parking lot on Smith Street across from the bus drop-off is available. The front parking lot can become congested both in the mornings and afternoons, so please use extra caution pulling in and backing out.
We are excited to welcome you to another wonderful school year and we look forward to meeting you soon. If you have questions or concerns in these next few days before school begins, please don’t hesitate to call the school at (307) 332-6967.
Sincerely in Education,
