It has turned out to be a busy first trimester for the guidance department here at Bancroft. We hosted Noelia Scharon, owner of La Michoacana Ice Cream store in Kennett Square. Ms. Scharon spoke to our third graders about entrepreneurship and some of the challenges and rewards of small business ownership. We are also thrilled to welcome Mr. Ray Fernandez, former KHS principal, who is coming to speak to our fourth graders about how to prepare for a successful career. Fifth graders will participate in a hands-on Career Fair on November 7th, hosted by the Chester County Technical High School. The Crime Victims Center will be doing the Safe Touches Program with our second graders, and a bullying lesson for grades one through five. We are fortunate to have so many opportunities for learning for our children and are very thankful for our volunteer guest speakers.
