September 2023

Message from the President

The beginning of the school year is a time of renewed energy and fresh opportunities. It’s a chance to set new goals, make new friendships and build upon our strong community. As we all settle into our new routines for the school year, the PFC extends a warm welcome back for a year of learning
and growth. Whether you are a returning Bobcat or a newcomer to our Bancroft community, we are thrilled to have each one of you here. Your participation is invaluable, your involvement and support are the foundations of the Bancroft community. With your collaboration we can create a fun, and
enriching environment for our students in the coming months. We had an amazing turnout for our first in -person PFC meeting of the year, let’s keep the energy and the momentum rolling into September. If we approach this year with enthusiasm and
kindness, together we can make a difference.

Sandra Gonzalez
2023/2024 PFC President

Fundraising Update

To date, we have raised just over $67,000 and are currently at 48% of our dollar goal. We are still hoping to reach our 100% participation goal, so please consider donating if you haven’t already (it’s easy to donate on Konstella). The funds we raise this year directly impact the opportunities
we can afford for our students. Don’t forget to check if your company does corporate matching! Every company has different
requirements but let us know if we can help you get those additional dollars for Bancroft.


Thank you to all the volunteers for our first family night! We served over 1000 cups of ice cream at
the Ice Cream Social, what a sweet way to start the year! If you are available to help during the day and have MDUSD volunteer clearance, please join the STEAM, Garden or library committees on Konstella to sign up during your child(ren)’s special
classes throughout the week.
