What could be a better combo of beach, sun, fun and Plein Air watercolor painting! Art elective in action learning to “draw what you see” with watercolor techniques using our beautiful landscape backdrop of Santa Cruz lighthouse and the surf. A trip to a local glass artist studio rounded off the day, with a glass blowing demonstration and a few fun facts about chemistry of glass and its use in creating sculptural pieces. – Mrs. McNeill
Thank you to Hunter Melrose and Boy Scout Troop 674 for landscaping the entrance to the Baymonte Early Childhood Learning Center on Bethany Drive. Hunter, a Baymonte graduate, planned and executed this project as one of his requirements to become an Eagle Scout. We are proud of Hunter and wish him the best as he continues to develop his leadership skills.
The Middle School Golf Team ended their season yesterday by finishing ahead of all the private schools at the all-league golf tournament at Delaveaga. Baymonte’s 8 man team represented the school well throughout the season. The majority of the team consists of 6th and 7th graders so we look forward to their participation next year. We wish our soon to be graduating 8th grader Jacob Meschi much success as he takes his golf game to the next level in high school.
-Coach Byron Finney
We go down to serve, but often come away learning more and receiving more spiritually than we could ever hope to give. I am beyond proud of our Baymonte family for their heart, passion and love for others as they were in Mexico. We danced, played hours of “trice” (tag), and went out into the community to pick up trash and worship with people of local towns.
The spiritual climate is always high in Mexico, and I look forward to processing through the trip more with our students in the days to follow— but rest assured, God always does amazing things when we step out of our comfort zone and put others before ourselves.
Thank you God for another great year!
Baymonte’s Bring A Friend To School Day last Wednesday was a success. We welcomed forty-two students from other schools in our community on our campus for the morning. We received positive feedback from our visitors about our warm, loving teachers, fun activities, engaging chapel, beautiful campus and delicious lunch. It was an exciting day filled with lots of liveliness and fun!
Warm weather and sunny skies provided optimal conditions for the highly anticipated pond field trip for Mrs. Wilcox’s second grade class. Science came to life as they ventured to a beautiful pond near Quail Hollow Park as they discovered the distinctive environmental characteristics of the pond and collected water samples to take back to their class. In the afternoon students used microscopes to examine the water and found newts, mayfly larva, hydra, tadpoles, water striders, worms, and numerous other aquatic creatures.

You may have noticed a few new friendly faces in the office this year. We were blessed to have the help of five wonderful office volunteers from September through December. After a year leading our office full time, we wished Julie North all the best as she pursued a new job in December. As a result of these changes, we thought we’d take the opportunity to introduce you to our current Office Staff. These ladies have combined experience of almost 50 years working at Baymonte!
