    MLK  Reminder there is no school on Monday January 21 in honor of the great Martin Luther King Jr.

    Bronco Star Winners Congratulations to our 10 Bronco Star winners this week.  These students displayed our Bronco Motto and were chosen in our raffle.  Our winners this week received gift certificates to the snack bar and a school lanyard.  If you have any prizes to donate our drawings please let our office know.

    Sports Physicals  The athletic department will be hosting sports physicals again on January 29 from 330-4 for $20 cash.  A flyer can be found in the athletics portion of the website.

    SLED  Did you know that SLED has given Bancroft over $4000 to Bancroft over the past three years to enhance the education and activities for our scholars?  This year alone they have offered $5000 worth of scholarships to teachers

    Winter Ball  Our Yearbook students are sponsoring the Winter Ball on Friday February 1 from 6-8.  The ticket price is $10 which will include dinner. If you are interested in supporting this event please contact Ms. Garcia at ext 3612.   Mr. Rosenberg will be hosting a planning meeting this Wednesday Jan 16 at 2:30 in G1. 

    Yearbooks  Don’t forget, yearbooks are now on sale for $35.

    College Day Every Monday is College Day in SLUSD district wide. It would be nice to see students wearing college gear on Mondays.

    Entrance  We have relocated our visitor’s entrance to the office if you need to stop by.  There will only be one door open on the left side that will guide you to the new entrance.  Please check in to the office anytime you need to be on campus.

    Spirit Gear  We have reduced the price for Bancroft t-shirts to $10 and $20. They will make great gifts. Please contact the office for more information.

    Earth Club   We are looking for landscapers to support projects for our Earth Club.  If you can support us or know of anyone, please have them contact Ms. Garcia at ext 3612.

    And finally Social Media  You can never over educate your children about the use of social media. Social media is our number one cause for conflicts at school.  Please take the time to remind your children about the responsibilities of using social media.
