Our Students, Our Future CLICK HERE FOR BOND PROPOSAL INFORMATION


 
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

As a district, we continue to see growth in the number of students attending our schools and in student academic achievement and opportunities.  In light of growing needs in our district, the Bath Board of Education formed a committee in 2016 to explore pursuing a Bond issue in 2017.  Based on a facilities needs assessment, community and staff surveys and three community forums, the committee recommended to the Board that the school pursue a Bond Project Proposal for $ 14,400,000.  In December, we received approval from the Michigan Department of Treasury to take our proposal to our community for a vote. 

The “Our Students, Our Future” bond proposal is primarily focused on improving and increasing our teaching and learning spaces and implementing technology enhancements.  As outlined below, we are also addressing auditorium lighting/sound upgrades, transportation needs, parking lot improvement/expansion, security enhancements, and resurfacing our track.

Please contact me at (517) 641-6721 or email me at jhuffman@bathschools.net to answer any questions you may have about the Bond Issue - Jake Huffman, Supt.
 

              March is Reading Month   

We are more than halfway through March and the end of the 2016-2017 school year is fast approaching.  As part of “March is Reading Month,” our elementary and preschool staff have been actively engaging our kids in reading.   The elementary school is holding class competitions and inviting guest readers into their classrooms.  In the past couple of weeks, I have enjoyed being able to read a story to some of our elementary classes.
 
 
As parents, we can and should reinforce these reading activities at home.  Reading is a life skill that benefits everyone and we, as parents, can be promoting reading activities at home with our children on a regular basis, not only in March, but year round.  Please join me in having a silent family reading time with your children, two to three nights a week, for 20 minutes.  Also, take this time to read to them and have them read to you.  Engage in conversation with your children about their books and just enjoy each other’s company.
 
I understand that we are busy and lead hectic lives, but if we all commit to this activity (preK-12 students and parents), we will be helping our young students to develop lifelong reading habits and have fun in the process!

Have a great spring and enjoy your families!
 
Proud to be a Fighting Bee,
Jake Huffman
