Join Our Bobcat Buddies Program!

Understanding that starting at a new school can be both exciting and nerve-racking, we have a program to help you get the support and resources you need to start the year off right!

Bobcat Buddies
Buddy families serve to welcome new families into our Bancroft community and help make the transition to a new school as easy as possible.  Our “seasoned” buddy families reach out to new families and provide you with support, resources, answers to questions and a familiar face around the school.

The Diane Adair on site daycare center is a privately-operated program located on our school campus. The program provides before and after school care to Bancroft students in grades K through 5, and is located in a portable building at the end of Parish Drive. For additional information on fees and registration, contact the
Stepfanie Lee, director at 938-4063.

All visitors must request permission to enter the school office by arriving to the front entrance and either calling the school office or ringing the doorbell located at the side door. Access to the office will be provided upon approval. Once a visitor has permission to enter the school, they must sign in. A visitor’s pass will be issued. The volunteers working with students must be district fingerprinted and cleared to volunteer. Visitors need to return to the office to sign out and return the visitor’s badge.
In order to eliminate unnecessary classroom interruptions, we request that parents and other visitors leave messages, forgotten lunches, books, etc., in the office for their child. In this way, the teacher is given the article or message at his/her break time, rather than interrupting students precious learning time. We appreciate your cooperation.
