Fun Run Info - please ask friends, neighbors and family to pledge. This is our largest fundraiser for the year. The money will go towards providing additional STEM resources for the school. Do not collect money until after the race, when you know the number of laps run. You are welcome to come cheer on your child, we will be racing at 11:00am. Students will all receive a school t-shirt to wear the day of the run. Thanks for your support!!
Students are able to dress up as a character from a BOOK. Not a scary costume, but something school appropriate (no fake weapons) and from a book. I will be dressing up also! The 3rd grade team has a group costume. Can you guess what it is? We will have a special snack that day also.
BrainPop Jr and BrainPop
The district purchases a license for BrainPop Jr and BrainPop. These sites have many short educationalvideos with practice questions. The topics include reading, math, science, and social studies. They are fun and the kids love them. We occasionally watch them as an introduction to a topic. They would be great for review also. You can watch them on their website or with the app. Watch all you want!

NED is here!
NED is a Character Education program that we will be using at Bay this year. NED stands for:
Never Give Up
Do Your Best
Students will be learning about growth mindset in addition to lessons on not giving up, encouraging others and kindness, and doing their personal best.
My class also watches this YES I CAN (click for link) video and we use that as our class motto! We work on being positive and telling ourselves "yes I can!"
