Bancroft Celebrates… DR. SEUSS Week + Birthday! March 2, 2017

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

We hope that you all are staying safe and warm after “Winter Storm Stella”! I guess I spoke too soon when sharing my excitement about the warmer spring-like weeks that we were getting. Sigh. Mother nature sure knows how to play tricks on us!

Any who, didn’t I tell you guys that the Bancroft crew LOVES to celebrate holidays??? Well, Dr. Seuss is also one of our *faves*. I mean, who doesn’t love Dr. Seuss illustrations and the super silly, tongue twisting rhymes that come with?

This year, we did something a tad bit different. Since each day during Dr. Seuss week was specifically themed by DCPS, we decided to play along; with Wednesday being the most exciting day! Wednesday was “Thing 1 & Thing 2” Day 🙂 Students were encouraged to dress like twins on this day, and in after school, we proceeded to make “Thing 1 & Thing 2” paper bag puppets! The kiddos partnered up and one created a Thing 1 puppet, while the other created a Thing 2 puppet.

Wellllllllll…… let’s take a look at what was created. Do you see your Thing 1 or Thing 2???

THERE Is NO After-School On March 13, 2017 + Potential Snow Day (Winter Storm Stella)

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

This is an announcement just to alert you that there will be NO aftercare at Bancroft Elementary (Sharpe) on Monday, March 13, 2017 due to the Standing Ovation Award Ceremony where our Bancroft staff members will be honored.  With that said, all aftercare students will be placed on the 3:30pm bus at the school’s regular dismissal time.

Additionally, please make sure to follow Winter Storm STELLA watch this evening in the chance of a potential snow day for tomorrow, March 14th. The weather channel is reporting at least 4-8 inches of snow to begin this evening around 9pm.

FUN Outside Play On Our “Warmer” Days

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

The winter season this year has surprisingly been quite kind to us. Specifically the month of February where winter tends to hit us the worst. However lately, we’ve been getting much warmer temps than expected — therefore, why not spend those days OUTSIDE?!

We love to give our students a nice 30-40 minute enjoyment period outside where they can scream, jump, laugh + run as much as their little hearts desire! And hey, even sometimes, you’ll catch me running around playing too 🙂 My favorite activity is joining them in a game of tag on the jungle gym!

Do you see your child below???

This Is How We Celebrated LOVE Day At Bancroft!

Hi Parents, Guardians + Friends!

No holiday goes unnoticed at Bancroft Elementary! We’ve made it a tradition to spend at least one day (or even a week long) celebrating holidays in the forms of:

  • discussion
  • arts/crafts
  • music/dance
  • coloring/drawing
  • and more!

Such was the case for Valentine’s Day! One of my favorites, so we definitely had to spend a couple of days spreading the LOVE ❤ ❤ ❤  We also ended the day with white chocolate kisses + cupcakes!

Parents, what do ya think? Did they enjoy VDay 2017 or what?! We hope that you loved your personalized cards! Take a look:
