Parents and Guardians-
Bataan's gymnasium floor is in the process of being waxed. For this reason, Bataan will have an alternate procedure for student dismissal for the first week of school. Parents will enter the building through the front doors at 3:00 pm. You will pick up your child/children from their classroom and exit through the front of the building. Bus dismissal procedures will remain the same. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience and greatly appreciate your continued support.
Mission Statement
Bataan Elementary School is committed to providing each student with meaningful experiences that enhance a lifelong love of learning. We will encourage all students to be problem-solvers both in their relationships with others and in their approach to learning. We will model an understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity and promote a positive and safe environment for all students.
IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATES, District News, and Information
11th Annual Luna County Literacy Showcase Collaboration between Deming Public Schools and the Gila Reading Council

For the past eleven years the Luna County Literacy Showcase has been encouraging students in Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade to get involved in the writing process, discover the world of telling stories, and to express themselves through words and pictures. Harriet Juricich, who has been with the showcase since the beginning, said “Our goal is to inspire children to read and write. Inspiration and passion for literacy is evident in the original stories and poems written by the students of Deming Public Schools.”

Students submit stories and poems to teachers, and then through a selection process the best of those submissions are submitted to the district for publication. Categories for the submissions include poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and graphic fiction. Student work books are put together by the district and then printed with the local support of the Southwest Regional Education Cooperative. The showcase celebrates “published authors” right here in Deming Public Schools and Luna County. Students may purchase copies of their school’s book for $10 each.

This year’s showcase speaker is Sue Young, an award-winning singer, songwriter, and storyteller. Young shares bilingual stories and songs with children and families in schools and libraries throughout the U.S. Her Folk/American duo, Young and Rusty, plays clubs and concerts venues throughout Texas. Young’s passion for teaching music and Spanish to children led her to a career as a children’s songwriter and storyteller. She wrote the 2009 and 2011 Texas Reading Club theme songs and puts together a show coordinated with the Collaborative Summer Reading Theme every year. Youngs 2007 CD Release, “The Legend of the Quetzal- Tales and Tunes of Latin America”, received a Parent’s Choice Silver Honor Award and a Creative Child Seal of Excellence.

Without the generosity of many local community members, organizations, and business sponsors the literacy showcase would not be possible. The showcase events will be held February 25 through 29, Young will be visiting each elementary school and Deming Intermediate School throughout the week. She will meet with the student body and tell her stories and use her musical entertainment skills to promote reading and writing.

Families are invited to attend the awards nights, to recognize students for their outstanding writing. The awards nights will be held at the Hofacket Gym, 1300 S. Iron St., doors will open at 5:00 p.m. and the showcase ceremonies will begin at 6:00 p.m. On February 25, the showcase schools will be Bell Elementary, Columbus Elementary, and Deming Intermediate School. February 27, the showcase schools will be Bataan Elementary, Chaparral Elementary, Memorial Elementary, and Ruben S. Torres Elementary.
