They've Arrived!

The fourth and fifth graders are getting their Chrome books this week!  We want to thank the Andover tech team for the very hard work in bringing these amazing learning tools to our children. We would especially like to thank Mr. Harkins and Mr. Hadley who have been working all day, every day this week to get them to our Bancroft students as soon as possible.

Waste Free Wednesday

We had Waste Free Wednesday and it was a success!  We were down 5 pounds of trash from the day before, which is a lot if you're adding up Ziploc bags and plastic spoons. We are looking forward to doing it districtwide in January.

Late Thanksgiving Post

Happy (late) Thanksgiving!  Here are some pictures from our incredibly busy and fun day.  We had a Turkey Trot,  Kindergarten Feast and a Read-A-Thon last Wednesday.

Lunch with Mrs. Costa

I had so much fun today having lunch with our Bancroft Bucks winners!  Thank you to everyone who participated in this program to support Bancroft School.

Students ended their short week with an all school read-a-thon.  They were read to, read to themselves or read with a friend.  Who doesn't love to curl up with a great book?

Even the teachers enjoyed this time!
