• Dear Bayview Families,

    Welcome back to an exciting 2019 – 2020 school year at Bayview Elementary School! The faculty and staff are thrilled that you have entrusted your child’s education to us. Our goal is to create an enriching learning environment that engages each child at BES. Bayview Elementary School has an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge and an outstanding support staff, who work in different capacities to support your child’s learning. This year’s theme is “Dream More…Learn More…Do More!” Of course, as the first educational experience in your child’s life, we need and welcome your support and cooperation. Along with your assistance, we are committed to reviewing our current practices and developing new procedures, in an effort to foster an optimal teaching and learning environment for all.

    Additionally, we encourage you to become active in our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which you will hear more from and about in throughout the year. The PTA is a wonderful way for you to share ideas and support the mission of the school. Other ways to get involved includes volunteering for various events and activities, chaperoning field trips, organizing classroom celebrations, and attending our parent/family engagement events throughout the year.

    Finally, we sincerely believe in a school environment that is collaborative in nature and draws on the strengths of all stakeholders, in striving to improving student outcomes. Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students. I look forward to working with all of the wonderful students, parents, and stakeholders of Bayview Elementary.

    Carpe Diem,

    Melissa G. Metz, M.Ed.
