Baker Elementary School serves the community by providing a well-rounded educational experience for students in TK through 6th Grade. Students have the opportunity to participate in programs such as the Algebra Readiness Club, Math Field Day, RIF (Reading is Fundamental), VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts), Windtree Education Robotics, Home Field Advantage, Cultural Bytes, Intervention Programs, Extended Learning Opportunities Program, El Monte Parks and Recreation, and THINK Together. In addition to extracurricular and enrichment activities, Baker is a proud Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports school (PBIS). We believe that by praising positive behaviors and teaching the necessary social skills, students will achieve academic and social success. However, our most important function as a school is building a positive relationship between school, community, and home. Baker prides itself on having a clear channel of communication through monthly updates through parent newsletters, automated phone messages, parent meetings, workshops, and the school's newly installed digital marquee. The principal, Leticia McCorkle leads Baker Elementary in its commitment to excellence in education. In partnership with her are Sarah Baek, Dean of Instruction, and the Staff Leadership Team which is comprised of grade-level representatives who hold meetings to discuss budget, safety, and other issues, and the School Site Council which is composed of the principal, teachers, staff members, and parents who are granted the opportunity to make decisions, recommendations, and evaluate programs for approval of the school-wide plan. Baker students are supported by an extremely caring and professional staff that works to develop well-rounded leaders of tomorrow. Our mission is to educate our children to their fullest capacity preparing them for a successful school experience. Students are recognized for a variety of achievements throughout the year. Monthly and Trimester award assemblies are held to recognize students from each class with Charger Language Arts, Charger Math Certificates, Outstanding Effort Certificates, Charger Citizen Certificates, Outstanding Attendance, Accelerated Reading Certificates, and Home Reading Certificates. The purpose of this report is to give you an inside look at what Baker is and does while we are entrusted with your children. By providing extensive parent education opportunities, the school hopes to encourage parental involvement in the educational process. Baker Elementary and the local community benefit significantly from their cooperation and commitment to one another. Parents and community members are encouraged to participate in organized activities such as fundraising, tutoring, aiding at special events, and chaperoning, to name a few.
