The Bancroft School community strives to create an environment in which Together We Will Make It Better. …And we accomplish this within the curriculum and beyond:
~Children lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance: Children can sign up in the office to lead the school in saying “The Pledge” during our morning announcements.
~Bancroft Buddies: Older students and younger students are paired as Bancroft Buddies. Their classes meet together, have lunch and recess together, share time and activities in an effort to build a respectful community by getting to know children across grade levels.
~Be A Better Bobcat: Children will have the opportunity to earn a "Paw Print" for steps in the right direction. They can be "paws"-itively awesome by working well with others, being in control of their body, being in control of their words, and knowing when to ask for help.
~Math Olympiad: We challenge children in grades 4 & 5 to use their mathematical thinking to solve problems during practices. Children will compete in national competitions. We know that our children can accomplish so much when they take the challenge.
~Parent Drop- In: Parents and our social workers meet as an informal group every other Monday. It is a time to come problem solve, explore parenting approaches, and learn more about your child's social emotional learning.
~Learning Labs: Before or after-school programs offered through our PTO for nominal fees, Learning Labs provides opportunities for children to develop new interests and “expand their thinking”.
-Senior Mentors: In cooperation with the Andover Senior Center, “Seniors” connect with our “Juniors,” building bridges across generations.
-Phillips-Andover Academy: Students from Phillips-Andover Academy, our close neighbor, provide another source of support to our children.
~Andover High School Warrior Way: AHS students are role models who show us how academics and athletics work together to build strong citizens.
~Student Council: Fifth graders can join Student Council, leading the way to maintain a community that works together for us and for others.
~P.T.O.: Our PTO is a vibrant organization that is an integral part of our school. Our PTO is always on board to provide cultural arts programs, materials, technology, and community events that make our school magical. Please visit our PTO website: www.bancroftpto.org , to learn more.
This is just a glimpse of Bancroft School. We are so proud of our school and of our school community. We invite you to take a closer look.
