Extra News

Parents, please double check that your child's initials are printed on all of their belongings (uniforms, Bakido T-shirt, school clothing, etc). We have several clothing items in the lost-and-found with no initials, so please check to see if your child has misplaced any items. Also, if your child does not have a lock for their locker, please provide a combination lock as soon as possible for security purposes (key locks are discouraged in case the lose both keys).

Our Creed

As a martial artist, I will respect my family and my home.

I will endeavor to bring honor to my art.

I will pursue my education to the best of my ability, with integrity and respect for my parents, teachers and my fellow man.

I understand that violence is weakness and that compassion is strength.
