Welcome Back Bakersfield Students and Families!

Can you believe it?!?  We are back to school in a matter of days and the anticipation of the year ahead has begun.  The staff are so excited to welcome everyone back and our classes are set up and ready to go.  The school looks great!  We can’t wait to see the smiling faces on Tuesday and connect with one another to begin the journey of our 2018-2019 school year. #bakersfieldproud
