    Good Evening,

    This is Mr. del Rio, principal of Bancroft Middle School with your weekly update for the week of August 20th

    Thank you all for a great start to the year!!  Also I’d like to give a big shout out to our wonderful PTA in partnership with Estudillo Produce for providing lunch to our staff this past Tuesday,

    New Year   Welcome to the start of the new school year.  We are very excited to work with you.  I hope we can create a memorable experience for all our students.

    Sports Physicals   Is your scholar planning on playing a sport this year? New rules require your scholar to have an update physical in order to play.  We will be offering physicals on August 27th and September 4th from 3-7pm.

    Backpacks  Just a reminder that backpacks are not allowed to be left unattended.  Please collaborate with your scholars so they can plan accordingly with the new rule.

    Lunch  If you feel you might qualify for free and reduced lunch, you need to fill out an application, one per family, every year.  The cafeteria will not be letting students charge lunch.

    Picture Day  Thursday, September 17 is picture day. Order forms will be coming home soon.  Everyone will be taking a photo whether they purchase them or not. All students will be receiving a school ID.

    SLED  SLED will be hosting their Sixth Annual SLED Gala, Cheers to Ten Years, on Friday, September 14, 2018.  This year's gala will be held at the Iconic Snow Building at the Oakland Zoo
    9777 Golf Links Rd. This event always proves to be popular so get your tickets early!  Please go to sledfund.org for more details.  

    Lost and Found  There are many personal items accumulating in the lost and found. If your scholar is missing an item please have them check the lost and found.  It is a good idea to write their names on their loose personal items so we can return them.

    Parking Lot  I want to thank all of our parents and families who are dropping off their students outside of the parking lot.  This allows for our staff to park and start working in a timely manner.

     Parent Visits  Just a reminder that if you want to visit your scholar’s classroom, teacher’s require 24hrs notice before visiting. We also ask that visitors report to the office to check in and receive a badge. Thank you for your support.
