Dear Babcock Families, 


“Always kiss your children goodnight, even if they're already asleep.”

-H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


February is such an exciting month for all of us at Babcock.  Students at each grade level begin to develop and progress as readers, writers, and mathematicians.  This week I noticed continued academic engagement in every classroom.  I observed fifth grade students learning math. Sixth graders comprehending a story.  Second graders learning how to read with teacher support.  We are excited to teach your children and prepare them for the next grade level.  At Babcock, I am amazed by the compassion and warmth each parent gives to their child.  Keep up the great work.


As principal of Babcock Elementary, I felt it was necessary to make changes to our lunchtime procedures in order to ensure student safety.  These changes have increased student safety and made for a better eating experience for students.  Your child’s safety is our number one priority.


Our character trait of the month for February is Anti-Bullying.  We will be highlighting what makes a good friend with students and using the book My Secret Bully by Trudy Ludwig  as a springboard for discussion. I encourage you to talk with your children about this character trait.


If all children are to succeed and progress as learners it is important to note that every minute and second of the school day counts during this time of the school year.  Please schedule vacations and appointments outside the school day. We are working hard everyday at Babcock and taking children away, even with an independent study contract, is never the same. With the academic rigor and pace of learning going on, it is hard for students to make up the time they miss.  Thank you for understanding and working with us.


Have a fabulous Black History Month!


Best wishes,


Mr. La Rue
