Principal's Message

PrincipalDear Parents and Guardians,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome back our returning students and wish to extend a very warm welcome to our new students and their families who have come to join our Bancroft community. I hope that everyone has experienced a relaxing and enjoyable summer. It is my sincere hope that your summer has created lasting and cherished memories of quality times spent with your loved ones.

I can attest to the sense of excitement and anticipation every member of the school community feels at the opening of school each September; and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers and staff of Bancroft for carefully planning and preparing for the arrival of our students. I would also like to extend my appreciation to our caretakers and our secretaries for assisting me in getting the school ready for the start of the new year. Everyone’s contribution has been invaluable.

Our primary goal is to assure that your children experience a positive and productive school year in which they will self-actualize and grow academically, emotionally, and morally. The staff at Bancroft create an atmosphere of cooperative learning, and encourages each child to develop their hidden talents, develop critical judgment and to nurture their curiosity. As research continuously underscores the fact that the more involved parents are in their children’s schooling the more successful students are in school, parents are invited to become involved in the school life of their children and in the life of the school.

Dorothy Ostrowicz, Principal
