Dolphin Dialogue

June 16, 2023

Dear Naples Families,

The entire Naples staff would like to thank you for an incredible year and we look forward to meeting our new Dolphins on August 29th at the Welcome Back BBQ. We hope you have a wonderful summer full of rest and adventure!

I've included a preview of some of the enrichment offerings we will have in the fall.

Thank you for another great year on the island,

Ms. Spenker

Naples Bayside Academy - "Anchored in Excellence"

Thank You Mrs. Rodgers!

Mrs. Rodgers is off on a new adventure after serving our students and families for 23 years. She promises that she will ride by on her bike or you may even see her sailing on the bay. Good luck, Mrs. Rodgers, and remember..."Once a Dolphin, Always a Dolphin!"
