WELCOME to another year at Bay School! I'm looking forward to a great year -- and I hope you are, too.
GT has changed for the elementary students this year. They will not be having pre-AP classes as they have done for the past 4 years. Those students who have been identified for the gifted and talented program will meet together with Mrs. Wilcox each week this year. We will meet on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 - 3:00 and on Wednesday mornings from 8:30 - 9:30. This format will allow students more time to do project-oriented activities as part of their GT class.
JR High and SR High GT students will continue to have the opportunity to meet together with Mrs. Wilcox the 2nd week of each calendar month. The meeting time is the same as last year (11:20 - 11:55) to coincide with Mrs. Wilcox's elementary schedule. Because of the change in the high school bell schedule this year, this GT time falls partly in the 4th period and partly in the 5th period. Principal Brannon has let the teachers know so they can release GT students the last 10 minutes of 4th period to come to the library for GT. They will be dismissed at 11:55 back to their 5th period class. This is only for the Tuesday (JR High) and Wednesday (SR High) of the second week of each calendar month. I have put schedules in the teachers' mailboxes and will hand out a schedule of meetings to students on their first meeting.
Whole Class Enrichment for K-3 will continue as before. They will get 30 minutes each week with the GT teacher for enrichment activities/lessons.
All classes will begin August 22 and 23 and are scheduled for Tuesdays and Wednesdays of each week when I am on campus.
