The Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon to the library October 24 – 28! Every dollar spent at the book fair raises money for the Baymonte Media Center. Books make great Christmas gifts!
Open Monday through Friday from 8:00am – 4:00pm with late hours on Thursday (until 6:00pm).
Can’t make it to the book fair in person? Shop the online fair and your order will be delivered to your student’s classroom within a few weeks of the book fair end date. http://
Volunteers are needed for set-up on Friday and afternoon shifts throughout the week. There are many ways you can get involved. Working at the Book Fair is a fun way to meet new people while you help the Library raise money to purchase new books and media. Please contact Catherine Upton at 438-0100 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

The Baymonte Lions participated in a Cross Country Meet at Rancho San Antonio County Park in Los Altos. There were five schools represented in our Bay Area Christian School Athletic League and over 100 runners. The course was over 2.26 miles of hills and rugged terrain with views of the Bay. Baymonte did exceptionally well in both the boys and girls races. Fourth grader J.D. Holmlund placed 11th overall in the boys division and 6th grader Caelan Gilliam placed 2nd overall for the girls! Way to go Baymonte!

A big thank you to all who participated in Baymonte’s Bring A Friend To School Day last Friday! The event was a huge success with 37 students joining our kindergarten – 8th grade classes for the morning. We received positive feedback from students and families about our teachers, staff, activities and campus!
The Baymonte Tech Trek is off to an exciting start! After our first turn-in day, we have received $17,305 in sponsorship donations and race registrations. Our top earner, Eli Kieft, took home Beats Wireless Headphones today for bringing in $1,450 in sponsorship donations. Way to go Eli! Mrs. Wilcox’s second grade and Mrs. Olson’s fourth grade classes enjoyed a Jamba Juice party after Chapel today for having the most sponsored runners as a percentage. The final turn-in day is Friday, September 30th.
The PTF is excited to announce that the Capitola Auto Mall and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk have once again invited Santa Cruz county schools to participate in the Drive for Schools Fundraiser. This is their 12 th year and we have participated all of those years. This year’s grand prize is a 2017 Toyota Prius or Subaru Outback or $25,000!
There will also be many other great prizes to win, including ten $1,000 cash prizes, plus over 100 additional prizes! The drawing will take place on Sunday, October 23 rd , at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk (details are on ticket). The best part about this fundraiser is that all of the money collected stays right here at Baymonte! Our goal for this year is to raise $5,000. If every family sells at least one book of tickets (6 tickets per book), Baymonte will reach this goal! The PTF will use this money to provide grants for the teachers so they can continue to enhance our kids’ classrooms.
How the Fundraiser Works:
Remember, this is all for our teachers!
