Join the Bailey Community for a social event that is also the school’s largest fundraiser!  The Bailey PTO will host a Fun Run behind the school and it is open to all ages.  There will be a one lap event for walkers and younger children, next we will do a 30-minute timed run for older participants, each registered participant can choose which run they would like to do (wristbands required).  After the runs we will do our annual Golf Ball Drop from a firetruck.  The balls to drop closest to the flag will win prizes (including cash prizes!).  This event is meant to cater to all ages and bring the Bailey community back together while raising funds for our amazing school.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will provide innovation grants for all elementary grade levels, including high-tech media equipment for the library, hands-on science programs and reading enrichment materials.  We are also raising funds to replace the existing playground in the next few years, a portion of funds raised will support that as well.  All funds directly benefit and enhance the classroom experience for each child at Bailey Elementary. Thank you for your support!

Playground Committee

Join the Playground Committee!

Bailey Elementary is turning 25 years old this year! The building was renovated around the 20th anniversary, so the PTO is considering an update to the playground to coincide with the 25th anniversary. The new families to Bailey have brought the age of the playground to the forefront of our attention, and we have decided to form a new committee to look into renovating and/or adding to our existing playground equipment. Some of the things we will need to do on this committee is looking into the overall cost of what we need to do, fundraising activities specific to the playground, researching grant opportunities, and working with the district’s new leadership to ask them to contribute to the playground (which they have not historically done).

If you are interested in joining the committee and/or have experience in adding to the playgrounds of your previous schools, please contact Stephanie Piquero (thepiquero5@gmail.com) for more information.
