COVID-19 RELATED UPDATES 

FAB Lab, March Teacher Appreciation and Spring Production Cancelled

Due to guidelines provided by the School District, we have decided to cancel FAB Lab, March Teacher Appreciation & Parent Ed, and the Bayside Spring Production. We have postponed the PTA meeting. 

FAB Lab

We are disappointed to cancel this beloved event. Unfortunately we will not be able to reschedule it. We are grateful for the many hours of planning put into it by the FAB Lab team. 

Spring Drama Production 

While saddened to cancel the spring drama production of "Charlotte's Web", the PTA and Bayside staff remain committed to building a theater program at Bayside and will keep you posted about developments. 

General Meeting & PTA Election

RESCHEDULED: Thursday, April 30, 6pm

Our next Bayside PTA meeting has been rescheduled for April 30th at 6pm in Staff Lounge, followed by a Parent Education Event: “Social Media and Technology."  The meeting will include the elections for the 2020-2021 Executive Board. The Treasurer role is open and is a required position. This position is ideal for someone who pays attention to details and is good with numbers. If you have these skills & are willing to serve or know of another parent, please email sharonbvause@gmail.com

UPCOMING

Join the Track & Field Team

NO CUTS - All are welcome!  Training begins Monday, March 23rd.  Meet in the lunch court with a signed Sports Release form (download here or pick one up in the office). Practices will be on Mondays (3pm), Wednesdays (2pm) and Thursdays (3pm) through mid-May. Questions? Contact Coach Walker at nwalker@smfcsd.net or Coach Liz at yeager.liz@gmail.com.

Seeking Middle School Sports Advocate 

The District is forming a committee to pursue options to build a sustainable and vibrant extracurricular middle school sports program and is seeking two parents from Bayside.

Timeline/Expectations:  

-- One monthly meeting in March, April and May (if needed). Joining via conference call is an option. 

-- Potential research and/or other means of generating ideas for the committee to consider

-- Deliverables to the School Board for consideration by the end of this school year

Middle school athletics is the first opportunity for most students to compete alongside classmates and, for many, the last. In addition to funding, the Committee may explore the program quality and impediments to participation. This is a terrific opportunity for our parent community to build a sustainable sports program for our middle schoolers!  Contact Sharon Vause if interested: sharonbvause@gmail.com
