Baymonte Christian Schools will host another Preview Day on Thursday, January 12, 9:00-11:00am. Join us for a campus tour, refreshments, observe classrooms in session and meet our staff. Come see what makes BCS distinctive! At BCS we have small class sizes, award winning academics, faith integration in our classrooms, a loving, nurturing environment and we offer a full day kindergarten. If you are interested in attending our Preview Day, please RSVP to our Admissions office at email@example.com or (831)438-0100. We hope to see you there!
Here at Baymonte, we believe excellence is a continual journey, not a destination. We also believe teachers are not just the givers of education, but also ones who thirst for new knowledge themselves.
Last week was not just a four-day weekend for the kids. While we were excited to give our hard working students some well-earned rest and extra family time, the staff drove up to Northern California to attend the annual ACSI Professional Development Conference. We heard from speakers such as Nick Vujicic (a man born without arms or legs, who is doing BIG things for the kingdom of God), Jay McTighe (author of Understanding by Design), and had the opportunity to be inspired in dozens upon dozens of breakout sessions. The staff not only grew closer as a community, but also came back equipped with the latest knowledge in educational techniques, cutting edge neuroscience discoveries, and effective Biblical integration techniques.
We hope the students had a restful weekend and that you enjoyed your extra family time. We as a staff are excited to be reunited with our students again, and to implement our new-found knowledge and inspiration from this year’s ACSI conference!
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!
