Bancroft Elementary School’s students and staff celebrated the end of the 2017-2018 school year with a Morning Meeting assembly on Friday, June 15, 2018. Everyone had a great time singing the school’s song, watching their friends perform dance routines or read poems, listening to Principal Mrs. Leah McComsey read aloud several fifth grade students’ Bancroft Proud essays, watching the “End of the Year” movie slideshow (see link below to watch), and a movie about what Bancroft Elementary School staff do during the summer to keep reading and doing math to stay ready for school in August.

Kindergarten Students Visit Bancroft

Students from the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center who will be attending Bancroft Elementary School next year visited the school for a glimpse into first grade. They experienced first grade first-hand, starting with breakfast. Next, the kindergarten students visited first grade classrooms and spent time with current first grade students. They ended the day with a tour of the school before boarding the buses for the trip back to the Kindergarten Center. The next time they arrive at Bancroft Elementary School they will be first grade students. We can’t wait to have them as full time students!
