The Bulldog Bulletin

  • What is The Bulldog Bulletin?

    The Bulldog Bulletin is the bulletin/ newsletter for the parents and guardians of Baker School students. It will contain news, upcoming events, tidbits, and "good-to-knows" for the Baker community. 

    Each edition of The Bulldog Bulletin will eventually be placed on the Baker School website and sent to parents via email.

    Why Bulldog?

    The mascot for the Baker School is a bulldog and we are affectionately known as the “Baker Bulldogs.” From my short time here, I have come to feel that the bulldog theme is not used enough here at Baker. So, having “The Bulldog Bulletin” for parents and for the community is a step in the right direction in embracing our bulldog identity.
