Principal’s Message

Dear Baker Families,

Welcome to the 2021- 2022 school year! This is an exciting time as we return to a new, better normal! I hope that you have taken some time to unwind and relax this summer, after a very challenging school year. I continue to be so thankful and proud of all that our students accomplished last year and look forward to seeing the many great things that will take place this year as we return to a new normal. Our theme this year is “The Baker Way, Everywhere, Everyday.” We look forward to continuing to see our tiger students be safe, kind, accountable, encouraging and respectful.

While we look forward to starting the year with 5 full days of in-person learning, we also understand the importance of safety. Per HCPS policy, all students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask while inside of the school building and on the bus. Additional risk mitigation strategies are also in place, such as social distancing, frequent cleaning, handwashing, and the availability of plastic desk guards. Thank you for your partnership as we maintain a safe and healthy school environment!

This year, our areas of focus will be social/ emotional learning, meaningful and relevant instruction, cultural responsiveness, and building positive relationships with students and families. At Baker, we value each student as an individual and recognize that we are better together! Teachers and staff will spend a great deal of time at the beginning of this school year building a strong sense of classroom community, teaching our SEL curriculum, and practicing routines and procedures. This will allow students to maximize their learning potential! I look forward to seeing all that our students will accomplish this year.

Again, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! I’m happy to have you as part of the Baker family and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve the Baker community. If at any time I can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
