    Bay High students show thanks to ladies who serve lunch

    Some of our Bay High students decided to show a real appreciation for the ladies who serve them lunch all year. They cooked a Thanksgiving Feast, broke out some linen and fine china, put roses out for centerpieces, and served up our cafeteria workers a fine dining experience. Thank you notes were included, too!

    Normandy students fight germs

    Normandy Elementary School is putting hand germs on notice that their days are numbered at the school.

    Kindergarten through second-grade students learned about healthy hand washing from St. John Medical Center registered nurses on Wednesday, Nov. 19. Then they pledged to become "Germinators" and to wash germs down the drain.

    The visit was arranged by Bay Village Schools nurse, Chanda Wall. Read more details here.

     

    Haunted Science Lab is fun, hands-on learning

    Halloween may be over, but here we dissect how one teacher and one project make learning relevant and fun! Ms. Ann Mowery, physics teacher at Bay High, describes her Haunted Science Lab in this video. Students featured are Haley Tennyson, Allison McKenna and Dan Berger.)

    Veterans Day teaches gratitude, respect

    Each year, Bay Village Schools students learn about the sacrifice and service of men and women in our armed forces now and throughout our history.

    On Veterans Day this year, observance activities took place throughout the district. For example, third-graders at Westerly partnered with the Avon Lion's Club, the American Red Cross and the American Legion Post 211 in "Holiday Mail for Heroes," creating cards to send to servicemen and women abroad. Sixth-graders at Bay Middle School had visits for current and retired servicemen who described their experiences. And Normandy Elementary held a parade and assembly welcoming 35 veterans to honor! Read about Normandy's Veterans Day in Julie Holland's Westlake Bay Village Observer article.
