Baranoff PTA welcomes everyone to the new school year!  We hope you had a wonderful Summer and are ready for the fun that awaits in 2018-2019!  Our New Parent Orientation along with our Kinder Play Dates were the first events  sponsored by our PTA and we are thrilled to meet all the new families joining Baranoff this year!  

A few items we'd like to share regarding the start of the year - these were important announcements that Mrs. Merriman, our AMAZING school librarian along with our WONDERFUL school administrators (Mrs. Counihan, Mrs. Cantu, & Ms. Sanchez) shared during the orientation.  These are things that everyone should be aware of and in some cases, reminded of as we enter the new school year:

  • FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL is different with the times & the procedures.  School doors will open at 7:30 a.m. with all students being walked directly to their classrooms.  Please bring your patience, smiles & courteous attitudes as we have over 1,000 students along with their families that will be waiting to get into the school at the same time.
  • Will you "BOO HOO" or give a high five with a "WAHOO" on the first day?  Either way, come join us in the library to socialize with other parents & have some sweet breakfast treats!  Our counselors will also be there in case you need an extra hug or conversation of support.
  • NEW START & END TIMES for the school day - Following the first day, the school doors will open at 7:05 a.m.  Assembly will begin in the cafeteria at 7:30 a.m. and then the tardy bell will ring at 7:40 a.m.  School will be dismissed at 2:55 a.m. for the Kinder & 1st graders and then 3 p.m. for all other students.  

PTA wishes everyone a very happy, safe & enjoyable FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!
