The Common Core provides us with a clear and consistent goal to ensure that our students are ready for college and career success in a 21st Century global economy.

It's Not Too Late to buy a brick for baywood!

This year's Fund-a-Need will add more green to Baywood's outdoor play spaces, enabling active, creative play critical to children's learning and development. Our primary goal is to add a stepped seating area and artificial turf to the hill between the upper and lower playgrounds (near Annex). To help us meet this goal, we are announcing our Buy-a-Brick campaign, which runs until April 18. 

With Buy-a-Brick, for every $250 donated you get to sponsor one brick that will be used in the new seating area.  Every sponsored brick will be engraved with your, your child’s or your family’s name – whatever you want! (Subject to character length limitations and PTA approval of course). Every increment of $250 gives you another brick (if you like), so for a family of four $1,000 would let everyone have their own brick.

To buy a brick, simply visit https://baywoodelementary.ejoinme.org/MyPages/2015FundaNeed

We fully expect this project to lbe a lasting legacy from the 2014-2015 academic year. Please join us and be part of this legacy.
