Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

The teachers at Baywood place children in classrooms according to the best interest of all students, both individually and collectively. We understand that often there are circumstances known to parents/guardians that would be helpful for staff when making placements. We appreciate your input to this process. If you did not previously provide input and would like to, please fill out this form and return it to our office by Monday morning.

Class configurations are based on our overall school enrollment and are tentative up until the weeks before we start school in the fall. Our best thinking on our classes for next year at this point is the following:

Preschool: 1 class- Mrs. Lloyd-Moffett

Kindergarten: 2 classes- Mrs. Fay & Mrs. Loeffler

1st Grade: 3 classes- Mrs. Stocking, Mrs. Taylor & Mrs. Dallas

2nd Grade: 2 classes- Mr. Banfield & Mrs. Newell

3rd Grade: 2 classes- Mr. Curran & Mrs. Cappellano

4th Grade: 1 class- Mr. MacLeod

4th/5th Grade Combination Class: Mrs. Dawkins

5th Grade: 2 classes- Mrs. Emery & Mrs. May

1st-3rd SDC: 1 class- Mr. Dale

4th & 5th SDC: 1 class- Mrs. Smith-Grove

You will be notified of your child's class placement at our Registration Day this summer in August, the week before school starts- the date will be announced in our last day of school Newsbearer. Mark your calendar for this important day.

To fill open positions created by our retirees, we have hired some amazing educators. I will share an introduction 'bio' on each of them with you next week.
