A message about Seattle Schools Open Enrollment and Assignment

Dear Seattle Public Schools family,
With Open Enrollment just around the corner, we are writing to alert you about important school assignment and school choice information. In an effort to provide quality customer service, the district has created an easy-to-use Assignment Look-Up Tool on the Seattle Public Schools Admissions website (http://enrollment.www.seattleschools.org) allowing families greater ease in identifying their student’s assigned school both this year and the next school year. As a result, families will no longer be mailed a next-year assignment letter for each student in mid-February. In the past, we took this extra step to help families transition to our New Student Assignment Plan as enrollment growth boundaries changed and while we established attendance area schools and choice assignments.
As a general rule, your student is assigned to the same school he or she is attending now. In the case of students moving up to middle or high school, students will be automatically assigned to their neighborhood school. This can be confirmed on the Assignment Look-Up Tool (available by Feb. 23) or by using our automated phone system by calling (206) 252-0212. If you would like to change your current or assigned school for the 2015-16 school year, Open Enrollment runs from Feb. 23 to Mar. 6. Full instructions on how to participate in Open Enrollment and choose a different school can be found on the Admissions website athttp://bit.ly/Apply-OpenEnrollment   or by contacting the Admissions office at(206) 252-0760. Choice forms will be available on Feb. 23. For families who applied for Advanced Learning testing, information about how to apply for a Choice school serving Highly Capable Cohort students during Open Enrollment can be found athttp://bit.ly/AdvLearningOpenEnrollment
Students affected by Special Education program changes, transportation changes due to growth boundary changes, and Advance Learning testing results will receive additional letters in the next several weeks with further information. Open Enrollment results will be sent in April.
Thank you for your support of Seattle Public Schools.
Pegi McEvoy
Assistant Superintendent for Operations

Free Money for Bagley! Off to a good start.

The Free Money Team would like to thank you for your work so far this year.

 What is Free Money?  It’s the fundraising program at our school that earns free money through several different programs when our families shop for just about anything.  Every little bit helps!  A few receipts from each family can add up to thousands of dollars each year for Bagley, to fund our school programs, including salaries and supplies for art, music, health and fitness, library, tutors, and much more.  
Just a reminder of ways you can help our school:
·         Use our Amazon link:  www.amazon.com/?tag=danibageelem-20.  Simply using this link when you start your Amazon session gives us up to 10% back on purchases.  We earned almost $3,000 last year!   Please bookmark it!
·         Save receipts from Ballard Market.  We earn 4% of purchases.
      Save Box Tops for Education. Make your kids in charge of collecting and turning these in. I keep a ziploc on the fridge where they can just cut out and stick boxtops as we purchase things.
·         Save Labels for Education.
·         Save empty ink cartridges from your printer.
·         Register your Safeway Club Card and Bartell Drugs Loyalty card at https://secure.escrip.com/jsp/supporter/registration/step1.jsp
