Stories from our Schools, June 2017: The Bellingham Promise in Action

Dear Families,

Thank you for sharing your children with us this school year.

I recently asked staff to send me photos, stories or short video clips that demonstrate their love for kids, and I received some great ones. I’d like to invite you to do the same and email me examples of our staff demonstrating their love and respect toward your kids during the past school year. I plan to share some of these when our staff gathers in August to kick off the new school year since this is a central part of The Bellingham Promise.

Thank you again and I wish you and your family a wonderful summer!

Greg Baker
