December Letter to Babcock Families


Dear Babcock Families, 


I would like to address concerns that we are not having a Holiday Show this school year.  My staff and I have been working diligently the past six-months to ensure your child can read, write, and compute mathematical problems.  We only have 180 days each school year.  By December 21st we will reach the 87th day of school.  We will have less than 60 days left to prepare your child for State Testing in April.  Therefore we decided not to waste precious instructional time to practice for a Holiday Show.  We are laser focused on student learning and  reaching our goals this school year.  I know you will support and respect our decision.  


Warmest regards,


Principal La Rue


School Vision

We are dedicated to ensuring that Babcock School is a welcoming, stimulating environment where students are actively involved in learning academics as well as positive values. Through our hard work, together, our students will be challenged to reach their maximum potential.


School Goals

SCHOOL GOAL 1:  English-Language Arts

By Spring 2017 ELA will increase by 11%. with an overall total of 35% of our students at proficient or advanced levels.  



By Spring 2017 Math will increase by 10% with an overall total of 30% of our students at proficient or advanced levels.  


Early Dismissals (Not Cool)

To achieve our goals above I do ask you schedule appointments after school hours. We have had an abundance of students leaving school early for various reasons.  These early dismissals are a disruption to student learning. No early dismissals will be allowed the last 30 minutes of the day.  Please discuss and make arrangements with your child before school about how they will make it home safely (bus, family member, or walk).
