SY21 Information regarding course selection sheets, course descriptions, Statement of Commitment and Standards of Excellence, and Memo with directions/information.

Due to the current restrictions and the uncertainty of when we will be able to return to school, we are sending you the course selection sheet and other pertinent information for the 2020-21 school year.

If your child will be in 7th or 8th grade for the 2020-21 school year, a  SY21 Course Selection Sheet, memo, Statement of Commitment, and self-addressed stamped envelope has been mailed to the home address that is listed in SIS.

ALL NECESSARY PAPERWORK MUST BE COMPLETED, SIGNED, & POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN APRIL 9TH! Be sure both parent and students sign the Statement of Commitment before returning. 

See below for pertinent details:
The course descriptions for The Arts and electives (grades 7th & 8th) are located on the Bak School Messenger page ( - look under Students & Parents. They are also attached to this email.

Please carefully read and follow the directions that are contained on the memo page (attached.School Messenger page). You do not select core academic classes nor do you need teacher signatures for these classes. 

If your address is correct in SIS and you did not receive a envelope from Bak by April 6th or your address is incorrect in SIS, please email Ms. Freidel (see below).

Provide your child's name - student I.D. - your current address - your phone number and that you did not get a letter.
