Thank you for a wonderful school year. It is a joy and honor to be your Principal at Baywood. I hope you have a wonderful summer and am already excited to welcome you back in the fall!

We have been working hard on planning for the upcoming year and I am excited to share our current class configurations for next school year with you here.

Our best thinking on our classes for next year at this point is the following:

Kindergarten: 2 classes- Mrs. Fay & Miss Loeffler

1st Grade: 2 classes- Mrs. Taylor & Mrs. Dallas

2nd Grade: 2 classes- Mrs. May & Mrs. Newell

Kinder-2nd SDC: 1 class- Mr. Dale

4th Grade: 1 class- Mr. Curran

4th/5th Grade: 1 class- Mrs. Emery

We will be saying goodbye to some amazing folks:

-Mrs. Brown, our intervention teacher, will be retiring

-We will be announcing our new secretary clerk and preschool bilingual aide in the fall

-Mrs. McGuire will be a teaching partner with Mrs. Cappellano

Once your Info Snap Registration is complete, you will receive your child's class placement via email on Monday, August 13th, the week before school starts. Note, class assignments will not be sent if InfoSnap Registration is not complete. Please contact our office if you need help with this process or need to use one of our computers.

ST Math

Students will have access to ST Math over the summer with internet access and their password. This is a great opportunity to incorporate math into daily summer activities, the games puzzles start off simple and then get more challenging as the student progresses. When they reach a challenging problem, they may ask for your help.

Accessing Homework in ST Math

  • Click on the Homework button
  • Enter the password
  • Type in the school name. Press Enter
  • Begin playing assigned homework

Student can play:

  • Objectives that have been assigned as homework
  • Objectives that have already been completed

You can use ST Math to promote mathematical conversation with one of these ideas below:

*Ask your child to select a level they have completed (it will be marked in green), and teach it to a family member.

*Build a summer math word wall with vocabulary words they use while explaining the games.

*Create word problems that go along with each puzzle.

*Write a math story based on the visual picture in a level.

Summer Math Activities

Math Learning Center has many great math activities, books, games and more that can help your child continue to practice & learn math this summer.
