Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

One of the spaces we cherish most at Baywood is our school library. It is a wonderful place to cozy up with a book, work on a project or enjoy a quiet moment. While our library is cared for by all of our staff, it is overseen by our school librarian.

At the end of this month, Baywood will be saying goodbye to our much loved librarian Mrs. Wright and will be welcoming a wonderful new librarian to our school, Mrs. Edgington. While Mrs. Wright will be leaving Baywood, she will not be far away, as she will be joining the staff at Del Mar as their librarian. This is a larger school and will provide her with new opportunities. The staff at Del Mar will love her!

We are excited at Baywood to welcome Mrs. Edgington as our new librarian. While new to our staff, she is well known at Baywood. Mrs. Edgington is a Baywood parent, has been an active member of our PTA board, a reading intervention teacher at Baywood, a parent literacy volunteer and even completed her library internship here at Baywood. She knows many of you and your children already and will be a wonderful addition to our staff.

Stop by the library in February and give Mrs. Edgington a warm welcome. You can also visit our library on the web at
