Bancroft Gives Back

We are offering two opportunities for families to donate to a worthy cause of their choice.

 In place of our usual food baskets we will be collecting gift cards to Raley’s, SaveMart, Walmart or Target in $5 and $10 increments to give to Bancroft families in need. If you know of a family that could use a little help this holiday season please let the office know.

Our second collection is for new, unwrapped toys for children at the Sacramento Children’s Receiving Home.  Donations may be dropped off at the collection bin by the flagpole, given to the classroom teacher or brought into the office. Thank you in advance for your generosity!


Rudolph Run

All Primary and Intermediate classes will participate in the Rudolph Run (aka Turkey Trot) during their PE times on Thursday, December 9th, or Friday, December 10th. It is recommended the students dress in layers and wear running shoes.  Spectators may watch from the front of the school (grassy area in the circular drive), please wear a mask and stay off the running track.
