Principal's Message

We are extremely excited to celebrate Staff Appreciation Week April 30-May 4. Bayville School is very fortunate to have a wonderful, dedicated and professional staff who truly care about our students.

As the warmer weather quickly approaches, children's attire becomes a topic of discussion. Warm weather clothing should be appropriate according to the district's dress code as noted in the school calendar.

Thank you to all of our parents, teachers, and the Bayville School PTA for your unwavering support throughout the year. Our collaborative effort has culminated in a safe, fun, and educational environment. We cannot thank you enough!

Jump Rope for Heart

Last week we participated in Jump Rope for Heart. Thank you to Ms. Appignani (event organizer), parent volunteers, and all of your donations. We truly appreciate your support!

District Reading Challenge

As an incentive to encourage reading, students who participate in the year long Reading Challenge will receive a "Reading Challenge" certificate. In addition, students will receive an entry for a prize drawing for a Scholastic gift certificate for every 2 hours of reading completed and will be featured on our Facebook page and recognized at each school. Students can keep track of their reading hours by clicking the link below. To participate in the challenge, students must turn in reading logs at the end of every month. A list of suggested books can be found by clicking this link:
