Treat Your Seat! 

Thank for donating to our Seat Booster Campaign!  Although we fell short of our goal, we are pleased to report that we raised $2,030 for new folding chairs. Upon hearing the news John Cosmos, our principal was energized: "It’s so exciting to see the commitment by our families to Bayside’s campus. The donations to our Seat Booster Campaign will help us upgrade our facilities in an important way. We are now beautifying our campus both inside and out."

It’s not too late to donate to this cause!
