Principal's Message

Baywood School has a group of parents and staff called the School Site Council (SSC). This is an elected body who has the responsibility of overseeing Baywood's School Plan and budget.

We have two open seats for parents on Baywood's School Site Council. It is a two year term and we meet 6 times per year. Our meeting dates for the 2016-2017 school year are 9/12, 10/17, 12/12, 2/6, 4/10 & 6/5. If you are interested or know someone who would be great, please write your name/their name on a nomination slip in our front office. Nominations will be taken now through June 6.

We will vote for new members on our meeting at June 8 at 3:00-4:00. All SSC meetings are open to the public. If you think you may be interested, but are not sure, talk with me or come to our June 8th meeting to see what it is all about. Thank you for your involvement in our school.

Notes From The Office

Parents - please remember that the school is open to students at 8:15am T-TH and 9:00 M. Students that come earlier than that will be calling home to remind you of this policy.


Please take the time to complete the Parent surveys that went home last week. If you prefer to do them online, please visit the links listed below:

(ENGLISH/SPANISH) Thanks for your feedback on our school.


During March and April, the school nurse will be screening first grade boys for color vision. This is a simple screening routinely done at this age to rule out color vision deficiencies. Please send a note addressed to the school nurse if you do not wish your child to be screened. A letter will be sent home to parents of students who fail the exam.

Volunteer of the Month

We are excited to announce that this month's Volunteer of the Month is Shelley Watanabe. Miss Shelley is a community member and has been an active volunteer in our Preschool. When in town, she volunteers daily, bringing with her a love of learning and working with children. She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a true asset to Baywood. Thank you Miss Shelley!
