October News!


Dear Babcock Families,

October is fun-filled month at our school. The Fall season is the beginning of exciting events for our families and community.  I am personally looking forward to our Fall Carnival on Friday, October 28, 2016 at 5:30 PM.  Family Friday which includes Coffee with the Principal takes place on October 7, 2016 at 8:45 AM.  I look forward to seeing you at these fun-filled events.  

I believe our school is the best!  We are the best because we support the growth and learning of every child at our school.  As principal of Babcock School, I want every child to succeed.  I understand the importance of a quality education. I also want every student at our school to feel safe and respected as a human being while learning.  In order to achieve this vision our mission at Babcock School is to provide:  

  • Rigorous Common Core state standards-based curriculum and instruction responsive to the unique learning needs of every child.

  • Opportunities for all students to discover and cultivate their own intellectual, artistic, and athletic interests and talents.

  • A physically and emotionally safe school environment that fosters trust, respect, and a sense of personal and civic responsibility.

  • A collaborative school community that draws on the strengths of all stakeholders (parents, students, and teachers) to support our students and celebrate learning.

Did You Know?:  Babcock averages 22 absences a day! That means we have one class of students missing each day! It is extremely important your child attends school everyday!

  • Research proves that students who are chronically absent in Kindergarten and 1st grade are far less likely to read proficiently by 3rd grade. 

  • For every day of school missed, it takes three days to make up what was taught.

  • By the 6th grade, if a student continues to be chronically absent, it is a leading indicator of whether he or she will drop out of high school.

  • Please make make sure your child is at school everyday!

Thank you for your continued support and promoting community at our school.

For our children,

Principal La Rue
