New Family Park Playdate

The Bancroft PFC invites you to a New Family Playdate at Arbolado Park.

Look for a table with a Bancroft PFC sign.
Put Saturday August 20th, 10-noon on your calendar as well; it will be our second new family park playdate.  Come to one or come to both!

Bobcat Welcome Back Cafe
Please join us for our first-day-of-school tradition, Back to School Coffee on August 22, 2016 at 8:01 am, and a Back to School Tea at 11:16 am for afternoon kindergarten families.
After you take your first-day-of-school pictures (and the teachers ask you to leave), please come join us for some coffee, tea and treats.  

It is a special event for parents to meet and reconnect as we begin the new school year.  We hope to see you there!
School Supply Lists
Find your child(ren)'s school supply list(s) on the PFC website. These supplies will be given to your child's teacher on the first day of school.  Participation is not mandatory, but it is requested.  Thank you!!  

Introducing Konstella - the online directory app!
At Bobcat Info Day on August 16th, after you find out your child's teacher, you will be asked to take just a couple minutes to register on Konstella.  Konstella will replace the paper directory this year and will provide a lot of additional functionality.  We are really looking forward to this improvement!  Thank you for your help in the transition.
