Bay Village Schools show high student achievement on state report cards

The Bay Village City School Report Card results once again place our district among the highest performing school districts in Ohio.

Normandy Elementary brings international monarch butterfly study to students

Education is best when it is relevant for students, and Normandy Elementary School is using the annual migration of monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico, and their Bay Village rest stop, to make learning about geography and science personal.

Bay Village is located right along the monarch butterflies' migration path, and students frequently see the beautiful-winged insects each fall and spring as the sojourners rest and replenish their nutrition during a journey that can reach 2,500 miles long.

Julie Holland, a Normandy Elementary school librarian, is one of many people who watch for and record monarch butterfly sightings during the migration. Read more about our study in the September 30 Westlake Bay Village Observer.
