Bayside Sports!

7th grade Girls Volleyball is currently undefeated and the 8th grade girls have a 4-1 record. Flag Football 6th & 7/8 are working hard and building strong teams. Cross Country Girls and Boys Teams have placed in the top 10 at each competitive meet thus far - including at Bayside's first ever home meet where Bayside runners swept all six races with several 1st place finishers. 
All of our athletes are growing in confidence and strength as the season goes on.  Go Eagles!

Bayside needs Basketball Coaches for the Winter Season!

PE Coach/Bayside Athletic Director William Katen is seeking basketball coaches for: Girls 8th B, Boys 7th A and B, and Boys 8th A and B. You'll need to be fingerprinted and attend some training. A stipend is available. Contact Coach Katen for more info: wkaten@smfc.k12.ca.us

Measure V - Support Our Kids

Please help to continue to spread the word to vote Yes on Measure V. As I've made calls via the 10 More Vote Apps, it is apparent that a lot of people don't know about this and how important it is for our local schools. There will be a Canvassing Effort tomorrow - Sunday, 10/7, 3-5pm @ Parkside Montessori - Help to knock on doors and get started using the TMV App. Bring your kids! RSVP with Parkside parent Erin Stallings: erin@feelosopherspath.org.

Julia Robinson Math Festival 

Bayside is proud to host the nationally recognized Julia Robinson Math Festival on Saturday, November 3rd, 10am-12pm. The Festival features games, puzzles and activities that encourage students to develop their math skills and creative problem-solving abilities in a collaborative, fun atmosphere. If you (or your high school student) are interested in assisting at a Math Games table or elsewhere, please signup here: Julia Robinson Math Festival Signups

The SMFC PTA Council is hosting an event about Emotional Health on October 24th, 7-8:30pm. Bayside Counsellor Ms. Alexander will be there along with StarVista, a counseling/mental health group. They will be discussing how to foster healthy emotional development in our children. Location: 1170 Chess Drive in Foster City.

Bayside is in need of a new PA system and microphones. If you have any expertise or industry connections related to this, please contact: SharonBVause@gmail.com

August and September were busy months - thank you to everyone who signed up, showed up and made a positive difference in the life of Bayside students, teachers and staff. The PTA is going strong with record-breaking meeting attendance and membership among families and teachers. And, the International Food Fair was a great way to celebrate our community and the outstanding talents of our students. Enjoy the photos below and enjoy your October Break!

Yours in service,
