Bacich News

Dear Parents,

We are looking forward to Parent – Teacher Conferences scheduled for November 13-16, 2018. This is an opportunity for parents to hear from their child’s classroom teacher about their son or daughter’s progress during the first trimester of the school year.

Conferences are a wonderful time for teachers to share about each student’s strengths, outline areas that may need improvement, and set goals for the months ahead.

  • Families who wish to have translators present at their conference should schedule their conferences for Thursday–Friday between 1–4 p.m. or by coordinating with the classroom teacher.

We offer online sign-ups for our parent conferences. We request that families of multiple households come together for the twenty-minute conference, which will be held in each teacher’s classroom.

Online conference sign-ups will open Friday, November 2, 2018 at 8 a.m. and close at 3 p.m. on Friday, November 9, 2018.

  • Parents may access the conference sign-ups through the following link:,

  • Simply choose Bacich, then select your child’s teacher and choose a conference slot to reserve your desired time.

Please note that Parent-Teacher Conference days are Minimum Days and follow the Minimum Day Schedule for each grade level.

Please plan for the shortage of parking around campus and make every effort to be on time for your child’s conference. You may reference the Safe Routes Park and Walk Map for Bacich to plan ahead for parking.

Thank you,

Sally Peck
Bacich Principal

Bacich All School Book Read for October

This month each classroom at Bacich will read the children’s book, All Are Welcome, by Alexandra Penfold. This is a wonderful book that celebrates inclusiveness and diversity; and reiterates the message to our kids and families that everyone is welcome in our school, in their classes, and the greater community.

We encourage you to ask your child about this story and continue the conversation at home.
