At Baymonte Christian School, we take pride in being able to offer small class sizes for our students, kindergarten – eighth grade. In order to offer a small class size with increasing budget demands we strive to find that balance of just the right number of students per class. A couple more students in each class would ease the pressure on our school budget. Our school board has approved an exciting initiative. We are calling on you for help! Do you know a family who would love Baymonte? Refer them to BCS and receive a significant discount at the same time!
Baymonte families are invited to refer a friend to our school. If that friend enrolls at Baymonte both families will receive 10% off 2019/2020 tuition. There is no limit to the number of families a Baymonte family can refer. This discount will only be given to one referring family. The Baymonte Family Referral Program runs from April 1, 2019 through May 31, 2019. Contact our admissions office to start the program or if you have any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org.

This week our fifth graders graduated from Scotts Valley Police Department’s D.A.R.E. program. In this 10-week program Officer Mike Birley taught our fifth graders accurate information about alcohol and drugs, taught them decision-making skills, showed them how to resist peer pressure, and gave our students ideas for alternatives to drug use and violence.
The Scotts Valley Police Department D.A.R.E. program’s primary mission is to provide children with the information and skills they need to live drug and violence-free lives. Through D.A.R.E. they establish positive relationships between students and law enforcement, teachers, parents, and other community leaders. D.A.R.E.’s innovative and highly effective curriculum was developed by Los Angeles Unified School District health education specialists. D.A.R.E. officers receive 80 hours of special training to be equipped with all the tools they need to teach a course in drug resistance and violence avoidance techniques.
At the end of their 10-week program each fifth grader is asked to write an essay about what they learned in the D.A.R.E. program. Two essay winners are chosen to read their essays in the graduation ceremony. Special guests at this year’s graduation included Officer Mike Birley, Chief Steve Walpole, Sergeant Wayne Bellville, Officer Paul Lopez, Lieutenant John Wilson, Officer Meredith Roberts, retired SVPD and former mayor Donna Lind, and school principal Steve Patterson. Thank you all for investing in our students!
BCS Elementary PE teacher, Mrs. Fernald invited special guests to school to conclude her frisbee unit in class. Ryan and his Disc Dogs (Emma, Nico and Kimi) performed in a special assembly on the Baymonte field. During Mrs. Fernald’s frisbee unit students learned the very first frisbee was a metal pie pan made by a pie company named Frisbee Pies in 1938. Thanks for a fun assembly Mrs. Fernald!

Recently our second graders concluded their class pond studies with a field trip to a local, private pond. Highlights of the day included seeing newts, dragonfly nymphs, mosquito larvae, frogs, water striders and collecting pond water to look at under microscopes back in the classroom. Later in the week students constructed tardigrade (a microscopic animal also known as the “water bear”) engineering structures and formed microorganisms out of clay.
