The Baker Middle School ALL IN Program started 2 years ago by Mrs. Laura Kemp and Mrs. Lindsey Becker. They saw an opportunity to recognize and provide positive reinforcement to the students who have all of their assignments turned in by their assigned deadline. Mrs. Kemp and Mrs. Becker brought in enrichment, STEM, and Maker Space activities for these students and worked closely with the students who need additional assistance to complete their assignments.
Last year the ALL IN program expanded to include more teachers and this year it has grown to include Science, Math, Language Arts, English Language Development, Social Studies, & Theater Arts. We have seen an increase in the student commitments to being ALL IN with their assignments. We are happy to support the Red Pillar by connecting with students and reinforcing the traits that led students to be ALL IN with their work: Perseverance, Positive Attitude, Growth Mindset, and Effort.
Last Saturday, the Baker scientists traveled to Toledo for their first competition of the year. Many of the country’s top schools were in the 35 team field. Baker finished 7th overall with some outstanding performances. Top finishers include-

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.
