As the end of this school year approaches, the staff at Bakersfield Public School are already beginning to plan for next year. One item that supports students to start off each school year on the right foot are school planners or agendas which provide a helpful link between the school and home. The agenda can serve many purposes, including being a means for communication between teachers and parents, as well as being a place for students to organize themselves and keep track of their homework, assignments and tests. For these reasons, it is especially helpful that students have their agendas from the very first day of school. We are collecting agenda orders early so that students can receive their agendas immediately when school begins in September. If your child will be attending Bakersfield Public School next year in grades one through eight, we would ask that you place your order no later than June 8, 2018.
School agendas are now available to order at a cost of only $5.00 each. While we have traditionally recommended that all students going into grades one through eight have an agenda, we recognize that many of our older students are increasingly using digital means to record their homework and organize their calendars; while the agenda is prominently used in Primary grades, agendas are becoming somewhat less utilized by students in Junior grades and less still in Intermediate grades. Nonetheless, many students make regular use of their agendas in ensuring they are prepared for class each and every day. Please note, as well, that there is a limited supply of agendas, and they may sell out. We thank parents and guardians for supporting their children in purchasing an agenda and we look forward to another excellent year.
Agendas will be available to purchase using School Cash Online through June 8, 2018. Please purchase agendas for each child under their respective School Cash Online accounts; agendas will be delivered directly to the students in September.
