Message from the Principal
Greetings to all members of our Baldi family,
I am happy to inform you that Power Hour has returned to Baldi. Please make sure that your child continues to use many of the online supports that the school offers for those students who are in need. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.
Your child’s second report card will be distributed soon. Conferences will take place on February 13, 14 and 15, 2013 from 1:00-3:00 PM.
During February we will celebrate Black History Month, Chinese New Year and Presidents’ Day. Encourage your child to participate in one of our many monthly writing contests. Please be reminded that school will be closed on Monday, February 18 for the observance of Presidents’ Day. Please make note that students will not have school Wednesday, February 6, 2013 due to teachers’ professional development. Spring recess is from March 25 – March 29.
Finally, beginning on April 8th, we will begin administering the annual PSSA test. Please help your child by:
I look forward to seeing you during Report Card Conferences.
