Bayview 2016 Open House
Open House / Meet the Teachers
Bayview is hosting an Open House this Thursday, September 22nd from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.
You can pre-order a light dinner to be served in the lunchroom starting at 5:30pm (order forms are available in the office, please return your orders to the office by 3pm on Wednesday, Sept. 21st).
Tour the school, the classrooms and the library and meet your teachers, the principal and the staff. When you're finished with your tour, come visit the main hall to learn about the events at the school this year to see how you can get involved with our school community.
Whether your family has been at Bayview for years, or you're new to the school, everyone is invited! We're looking forward to seeing all Bayview families there!
This fall, the library welcomes Lori Sherritt-Fleming as our writer-in-residence. Thanks to funding from ArtStarts and the Bayview PAC, Lori will be working with primary students on a program she calls Techno-Poet-Ology.
Students will be exploring how poetry, prose, and narrative scenes can be stretched to their most expressive forms, or condensed (a la text messaging, for example). They'll be working with the school's iPads to create their own technology/poetry combinations.
Lori is an author and actor who has worked in arts education for more than twenty years. We're excited to welcome her to Bayview!
Hot Lunch Program Launch!
It's finally back, the Bayview Hot Lunch program is set to serve its first meal on Monday, October 17th in the Bayview lunch room. Note that the ordering deadline for October is October 12th.

Bayview Community School Heritage and History
Hilary Feldman passed along the following link to a web page that contains some of the history behind the Bayview school building and the parent community that formed the first PTA in the early 1970's. I've also added a PDF version of the web page which can be found in the About > Our School section of the website.
