Principal's Message

Dear Bancroft School Families and Community,

  As your principal, I am committed to continuing the tremendous legacy, tradition and vision of Bancroft Elementary School.  I am thrilled to be part a dynamic staff of dedicated, talented, caring and committed educators and am excited to be working with our wonderful and brilliant students.  One of Bancroft’s greatest strengths is our powerful family and community support.  As parents, guardians and family, you are your child’s first and greatest teacher.  Together as a loving school community—family and school—working as a mutually trusted and respected team, we exemplify our belief and philosophy that “it takes an entire village to raise and educate a child.

The Bancroft teaching and support staff is committed to providing caring and safe learning environments that educate the minds along with encouraging the hearts and spirits of our students.  Our staff provides powerful and challenging curriculum and instructional activities designed to meet the educational needs of students. Communication between home and school is valued. You will receive teacher created communications including newsletters, e- mails, phone calls, notes, and progress reports. Starting this year, there will also be a weekly newsletter from the principal, "Peek at the Bobcat Week", with information about upcoming events, dates to remember, ways to help your child succeed and other valuable information. Back to School Night” is held the first week of school so that parents have the needed information to support their child in his/her current school experience. Parent -Teacher conferences are held in October, acting as a progress report before Report Cards go out in November.  Academic goals for continued growth and success are established together.

As the principal of Bancroft Elementary School, my door is always open to you.  Educating children through exceptional school programs is our business and our passion.  Your child is important to us.  You are important to us.  Together as a school family let us enjoy and relish every moment of this school year with our students because it passes by so quickly as if ‘in the blink of an eye”!


Warmest Regards,

Cindy Dunn, Principal
