Family to Family
This is a monthly forum for our families that offers support, information, resource referral, and discussion on a variety of topics throughout the year. Hosted by Jen St. Cyr.
Bagley participates in the Seattle Public Schools’ elementary instrumental music program for fourth and fifth graders. Thanks to additional support provided by the PTA, all interested fourth and fifth grade students may register for the program during the September enrollment period. Students meet once a week for approximately 30 minutes of group class instruction during regular school hours—depending on the schedule, this could be during either classroom or PCP time. They then have a chance to perform what they’ve learned in two school day assemblies and evening concerts for friends and family: one in the winter and one in the spring.
Our music teacher, Ms. Emily Schaefer, is an accomplished cellist and offers instruction on both orchestra and band instruments: violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, and trombone, with additional instruments accommodated on a case-by-case basis. Instrument assignment is based on student choice and instrument availability.
This is an opportunity for beginners to start a musical instrument and also for returning or more advanced players to work in an ensemble with their classmates. Many alumni who began an instrument here at Bagley have gone on to excel in their middle school and high school orchestras and bands.
Weekly classes run throughout the year, from October to June. In addition, the school district offers a summer music program, which allows music students to get a jump on their skills and play in larger groups with other students from around the city.
For families new to the school or for those who have not made it out to watch the fun, the Jogathon provides a whole lot of energy and excitement for everyone involved. Groups of volunteers and supporters join the kids as they challenge themselves and encourage each other to walk, skip and jog around the course. We encourage and welcome everyone to come out and cheer, volunteer, or run a lap or two with the kids!

Math Night is a fun, education way for families to connect and explore math together. Over 20 math games will be available to play in the cafeteria, with the option to purchase on the spot. Games are provided by Math N Stuff. It’s a great way to test out a bunch of different games before committing to buying one. There are super cool math demonstrations by Math 4 Love and the Pacific Science Center. Math Night is a huge hit. Plan to be a part of the fun this year! To help with this event, contact the Math Night Co-Chairs Julia Bacharach and Dan Cory.
Outdoor Learning Garden
Families volunteered to tend the garden for a week apiece during summer break, donating surplus to the Greenwood Food Banks. Thanks to their efforts, Bagleyites were greeted on the first day of school to visions of plump pumpkins, a rainbow of tomatoes and towering sunflowers! Read more…

It’s a fun night of celebration and song!
