A Note from Principal Diego De Paz

We are excited for the 2018-19 school year to begin!  As we open the doors to our newly renovated building and addition, we will strive to establish a lasting legacy for future generations of Bancroft students! 

Reflecting on the past school year made me realize how fortunate we are at Bancroft Elementary. Our students continue to grow academically and socially. We can be proud of their perseverance and hard work throughout the school year. In fact, the district recognized Bancroft for our three consecutive years of growth in proficiency in both reading and math!  We understand that we could not achieve so much without the collaborative partnerships between staff, students, and families. We work together as a team and this is one of the greatest strengths of our school. Thank you for sending your children to Bancroft!
