We want to thank A.C.E from the bottom of our hearts for putting BOOKS, BOOKS and MORE BOOKS into the hands of our teachers and students!  We ordered books for every grade through their generous donation and recognition of the importance of instilling a love of reading!

Superbowl Rally

Bancroft held a rally for the Superbowl, focusing on how the Patriots are an example of perseverance, adaptability, working together and supporting others. We sang the National Anthem, watched a few clips of perseverance and danced! The news crews were there to capture a 30 year tradition of community building around this event.

The Design Engineering Model

Mrs. Minigell's 4th grade class and Mrs. Moriarty's 5th grade class are working together, using the Design Engineering model, to solve the problem... we have two classes scheduled together in the Library, how do we minimize the noise and distractions?  The two solutions they are focusing on are 1) equal distribution of space and 2) distraction from too much noise.

CSA Play: WOW!

Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 starred in a recent Children's Stage Adventures production, "A Fisherman and His Wife."  In one week, these actors learned their lines and the songs to ensure an uplifting and professional production.  Great job everyone!  Thank you to Mrs. Foohey and Mr. Harkins for producing this play.

Heritage Night and Art Show

This blog is a little late but these pictures truly capture the magic of Heritage Night and the Art Show.  There was such a celebration of our diversity as a school community and we appreciate all of those who contributed to this evening.  There were performances, ethnic food and tables that families planned to show pieces of their cultures and pride.
