Bancroft Elementary School’s Instrumental Winter Concert amazed everyone in attendance. Students gave a dress rehearsal to all students in the morning and the formal concert to students and their families in the evening. Songs performed included Walking Along, Buckeye Salute, Ode to Joy, Tokecang, Obwisana, and String Explosion, a student favorite. Mrs. Elisa Mata and Mrs. Michelle Strickland directed the student musicians while Mr. Ryan Battin was the accompanist.
Harlem Wizards player David Paul led an exciting pep rally for Bancroft Elementary School students and staff. David showed some amazing basketball moves while encouraging students to attend the Wizards vs. Bancroft teachers basketball game on February 10 at Kennett High School’s gym. The Harlem Wizards player even gave personal basketball lessons to one special Bancroft student.
The Harlem Wizards basketball team will play Kennett Consolidated School District teachers in a basketball game on Saturday, February 10, 2018, at the Kennett High School gym. It will be an exciting game, and to get ready Bancroft Elementary School is hosting the Harlem Wizards this Friday, January 26 for a pep rally. Get ready for some real excitement!
Bancroft Elementary School’s students and their families celebrated with a Winter Wonderland, a fun, family day held at school. Students enjoyed playing games, competing on the bungee run and wrecking ball, making crafts, and eating snow cones and bake sale items donated by parents. Teachers joined in the fun when they were adorned as snowmen by the students and donated amazing cakes to be won in the cake walks. This PTO activity replaces the Fall Festival that ran for years at Bancroft Elementary School. Thank you to the school’s PTO, and the parents and teachers who volunteered their time, especially Mrs. Gretchen Peterson and Mrs. Willauer, who helped make Winter Wonderland a successful and fun day!

In the fall, winter and spring a group of first and second grade students gather together after school to participate in Bancroft Elementary School’s Jump Rope Club. This club promotes physical activity, cooperation, and FUN! The fall session was a huge success with students learning the basics of how to jump rope as well as more complex skills and tricks. Each week the students learned something new such as partner jumping, group jumping, and using a Chinese jump rope. There was so much interest in Jump Rope Club this year the winter session is already filled with students who were not able to participate in the fall. First grade teacher Mrs. Stacey Hoernig looks forward to teaching new group of students the ins and outs of jumping rope!
