Welcome

I would like to welcome you to our school.  Academic excellence has long been the standard at Baum and we look forward to working with you and your students in that continued tradition.  Our dedicated staff and I pledge to provide a challenging and rewarding experience for your child(ren).  We invite you to become involved in our educational program, to ensure a strong, cooperative effort between home and school.  Our doors are always open for visitors and we encourage parents to observe, volunteer, and participate.
