Last summer, when we were in the building missing the sounds of all your children’s laughter ringing in the hallways, we were talking about what a privilege it is to have such a great neighborhood school. We felt so proud to be a part of Bateman. To belong to Bateman. To Be Bateman.
Be Bateman... All year, we’ve have been asking our school community, What does it mean to Be Bateman? Is it an experience? A feeling? Well...we get to see what it is everyday:
We’ve seen students collaborating on an art project outside to beautify our playground fence.
Our artists show us what it means to Be Bateman.
We’ve seen students tackling difficult math problems and explaining their thinking.
Our mathematicians show us what it means to Be Bateman.
We’ve seen it in our teams, our leaders, children’s smiles and actions.
All of our students show us what it means to Be Bateman.
We’ve seen teachers encouraging kind choices and positive friendships.
Our staff shows us what it means to Be Bateman.
These words have encompassed a whole school year and are still taking new meaning each day. What started as a small two word idea has become what we stand for at our great school. From a small action between students to a big event put on by parents...Be Bateman is alive!
If you haven’t had the chance to witness what it means to Be Bateman, we hope this provides you a small snapshot.
Thanks to the generosity of Elise and Gregg Jaffe and their team at Big Teeth Productions, we are yet again very proud to present a glimpse of our great school and what we all feel it means to “Be Bateman”.
