On Monday, November 18th, our Religious Diversity Journey program had their first visit. They spent the day at Sikh Gurdwara in Rochester Hills to learn about the Sikhi faith and culture. Our student's level of respect, curiosity, and open-mindedness was commendable. The Religious Diversity Journey students travel once a month to various places of worship to learn more about the various religions and cultures throughout Metro Detroit.
The 2nd Religious Diversity Journey was Wednesday, December 4th. The students went to Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Bloomfield Hills. This was a great experience for our students. Their next Journey will be Monday, January 13th, 2020. They will be traveling to Congregation Beth Shalom in Oak Park.
Last Sunday, our Robotics team (Tech KNOW Logic) traveled to Oxford to participate in the The Oxford Wildcat Quest 1 tournament. They won first place and earned a spot at the state level competition on December 13th. They were awarded with a trophy and medals for everyone on the team. Congrats to all of our Robotics Teams. We are very proud of them and their representation of the Baker Family and OneTroy! Go Bobcats!
This Week at Baker
Reading with Addison
The counseling department at Baker Middle School now includes a Therapy Dog, Addison! We have been incorporating Addison in many ways and we wanted to share this passion with our feeder elementary schools! To help future Bobcats make a connection to Baker, we have started a YouTube channel featuring students and staff reading to Addison. To view this channel, you can subscribe to Baker Counselors on YouTube or click on the link below. We plan to add more videos and other helpful information during the year. We hope you enjoy this project and encourage you to share it with your families.

Hello and welcome to the Baker Bob Shop!! We really appreciate you signing up to volunteer. The shift runs every school day from 11:15am - 1:00pm. On these days we need one Shop Keeper, with the exception of Tuesdays and Fridays. These are Candy Days and usually very busy, so we ask for two Shop Keepers.
Don't worry if you have not volunteered in the past. There are directions in the Bob Shop, and Jennifer Molotky is there most days as a noon aide. She is overseeing the Bob Shop this year and is happy to help anyone who needs it!
Please review the slots using the link below and sign up where you can. Be mindful to let everyone have a chance to take a spot so as to be fair. Again, we really appreciate your willingness to help out and have fun Shop Keepers!! Feel free to email or text me any questions.
Kroger Rewards & Amazon Smile
The Baker PTO has the opportunity to raise a significant amount of funds every year through purchases regularly made at Kroger and Amazon! Many of you already make purchases through these companies. They are willing to donate a portion of the proceeds back to Baker. These funds go directly into the classroom, impacting all Baker students. If you have not registered yet with Kroger or Amazon, simply click on the links below to find out how. Please consider asking your family and friends to sign up for this FREE benefit for our Bobcats. Thank you for support of the Baker PTO.
