As a culmination of our government unit we will be visiting the Florida Capitol building and the Old Capitol Museum in Tallahassee. This will be a great hands on field trip, witnessing government in action.
We are still working out details regarding busses and the cost. More information will come soon. Due to the size limits on tour groups and the sizes of our classes, parents will not be able to attend this trip. Please work to secure transportation to and from school for your child. Thank you for your patience.

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!"
