Mark Your Calendar

Thursday, October 27th is the Bay View PTA's Bingo Night. Students are invited to school from 6:30-7:30 pm to play bingo, eat popcorn and participate in a costume contest if they want to. For more information, contact the PTA at bvpta@be.wednet.edu.


Honoring Our Veterans

We are currently seeking photos of United States military veterans for our Veteran's Day assembly in November. If any members of your family have served (or are currently serving) in the armed forces, we would love to honor them by sharing their photo with the Bay View community. Our music teacher, Mr. Taylor, is collecting these photographs. While you can send the photos in to be scanned, it's much better to send photos electronically. You can reach Mr. Taylor by e-mailing mtaylor@be.wednet.edu.


Family Heritage Project

On Monday, we launched the first part of our inquiry unit on immigration. Students brainstormed a list of questions to use for an interview. Sometime this week, each student should interview a family member about their cultural heritage. We are specifically interested in discovering where we came from and why. 

Students will use the information learned to create a presentation for the class. Understanding why our families emigrated can help us begin to analyze other groups and historical trends. Specifically, we are interested in the causes of immigration and how this movement effects human cultures over time.
