Engaging our Community

Your PTSA membership and generous donations make it possible for our school to offer these wonderful events that benefit our children and our community as a whole. These events would not be possible without parents volunteering their time to organize, run and support them. We have an exciting line up planned and look forward to seeing you online!

This year, we’ve made extra special event stickers for students to collect. Participate in events to collect them all.

Join us on an culinary excursion celebrating the diverse, multi-cultural Bay Farm community. Where did your favorite food come from? Share the recipe and a step-by-step video of how to make your favorite dish so that everyone can enjoy! Then try other’s favorite food and experience something new.

Date & Time – March

Rescheduled Virtual Online Assembly - The EcoHero Show

We are so excited that Mr. Eco and his EcoHero crew will be putting on a virtual assembly just for us BayFarm Dolphins that allows students to enjoy song, dance, stories, trivia and more.  We will learn about food waste and other ideas on how to protect our planet. It is a live stream show, so all you need to participate at home is internet access and a device to watch the show, such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
To participate, just click the streaming link below at our scheduled show time and enjoy! Deuces!

April 7 @ 10 am

Bay Farm School

* Webinar cannot be accessed until April 7 at 10 am.
* Students will enter their first name and then can use: “contact@mreco.org” to join webinar, instead of their own email.

Earth Day Trivia Challenge

Come test your eco-knowledge by playing our Earth Day Trivia Challenge anytime that works for you between April 5 to April 9. Students will compete by playing a Kahoot trivia challenge for the appropriate age category. Don’t stress – it’s not expected that anyone will get every question right. The most important thing is to have fun while learning something new! Parents can absolutely help a younger student read or interpret the question.

 

Please play only once in the appropriate age category. Bike store gift certificates for top three scorers in each grade category. For the nickname field, please use your first initial, last name, and grade level (example – jsmith3). Others may be able to see your ranking, so if that makes you feel uncomfortable, you can use your initials and grade#, and we’ll try our best to find you if you score high.
If you want to brush up on some eco trivia before the challenge, here are a few pages to visit:

During the two weeks of Read-a-Thon, EVERY single student is strongly encouraged to read for fun and help raise much needed funds for our school. Do what you can, and know that every dollar counts and benefits all of our children.

Dates – April 9th – 16th

Repurpose & Upcycle Showcase

Yesterday’s trash is today’s new…

Show us your creativity. What can you make with the stuff around the house? Could Dad’s old shirt become your new wristband? What about making the broken flower pot into a wind chime? Let’s see what you can do when you challenge yourself to repurpose or upcycle instead of tossing things into the trash or recycle bins. Share your ideas and see what goes viral.

– Join the Konstella Social Group “Repurpose & Upcycle Showcase”

– Post your photo/description of what you did

Dates– April 19th – 30th

 

Race to the Finish!

The year is almost done so let’s see who can get across the finish line first. Get together with your pod-friends and family to build a moving vehicle and see how fast it can travel 3 meters. Vehicles can not be larger than 30 centimeters in length and must travel the 3 meters under their own power (no pushing). Send your best time and a video of your vehicle moving in to win the race!
