Message from the Principal
Greetings to all members of our Baldi family,
I am happy to inform you that Saturday School has returned to Baldi. We will contact those students who qualify for this opportunity. 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.
Your child’s second report card will be distributed soon. Conferences will take place on February 12, 13 and 14, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 PM. Students will be dismissed on those days at noon. Please see this letter for more information.
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 17 for the observance of Presidents’ Day. Please make note that students will not have school Wednesday, February 5, 2014 due to teachers’ professional development. Spring recess is from April 14 – April 18.
Finally, beginning on March 17th, we will begin administering the annual PSSA test. Please help your child by:
I look forward to seeing you during Report Card Conferences.
