WELCOME TO A FABULOUS SCHOOL YEAR!
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! I hope you and your family have had a fun and restful vacation. The summer is over and we are ready to soar into another rigorous and challenging school year. You will notice five new bungalows on our campus which will include a classroom for our RSP Program this year. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we finish up construction. I look forward to working closely with you throughout the year and continuing to support the wonderful programs that are in place here at Naples. Together the staff and community will provide a private school type of educational program in a public school setting. Naples students achieve at accelerated rates and demonstrate academic excellence. Our SBAC scores are the highest in the district. We will have lots of positive data to share at our first PTA meeting. Congratulations to our students and families. This is quite an accomplishment!
Thanks to the Naples PTA and Foundation and the entire Naples community for all of their support. We now have state of the art iPAD teaching stations in every classroom and 30 new computers in our library computer lab. The PTA and Foundation also provide many valuable programs as well as field trips and much needed classroom supplies. Kudos to all of the parents that have supported these groups. You are making a difference in the quality of the programs your children will receive this year. A special thanks to Brenda Durnin and Jim Gerdts for leading these two groups so successfully - 100% of the monies raised go directly to programs for your children.
Naples is proud to introduce our new staff members – Aida Pafford/RSP teacher, Sharon Phillips/Intermediate Office Assistant, Kristen Carter/ Speech teacher, Darla Castillo/Librarian, Meghan Moo/Vocal teacher, Stephanie Faria/Instrumental teacher, and Shugey /Cafeteria Manager. They have many years of experience and are looking forward to meeting all of you. We are off to a great start.
MONDAY OPENING ASSEMBLY
For those of you who are new to our school, we have a wonderful tradition at Naples Bayside Academy. Each Monday morning, the entire school community attends our Opening Assembly. We begin at 8:00 just after the bell. We say the Pledge of Allegiance, sing a patriotic song, and hear important announcements. It is a very special time for all of us to be together as a school. Please join in!

SPORTS JERSEY DAY
Show your school spirit! We will be having Sports Jersey Day on Friday, September 26. Guidelines: Jersey top, uniform bottom, and appropriate school shoes.
NAPLES BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT 9/16
Back-To-School Night is a very important evening set aside for teachers and parents to share ideas and strategies for a successful school year. This is an evening for parents only. There will be no playground supervision. We thank you in advance for planning ahead and arranging for child care. To help you make the most of your evening, the teachers will hold two identical sessions so that those of you with multiple children will be able to hear from each of their teachers. The first session will be from 6:00 – 6:40 and the second will be from 6:40-7:20. Please don’t miss this very informative time with your child’s teacher.
VIPS – VOLUNTEERS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS
VIPS are a vital part of the education program at Naples Bayside Academy. They help in the library, the classroom, the playground and the office. If you would like to be one of our VIPS (Volunteer in Public Schools), all you need to do is complete a VIPS application, attach a current TB test, and submit a copy of your Driver’s license or photo ID. There will be VIP training on Friday, 9/11 and Monday, 9/14 from 8:15 to 9:00 in the library. Please direct questions to Carrie Fernandez, VIPS Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Packets for Session I of our After School Programs will go home on September 11 and programs will begin on September 21. There will not be any after school classes on the following dates – 9/16 for Back to School Night, 10/30 for the Halloween parade, and 11/11 Veteran’s Day holiday. Select the programs you would like, attach a check to the sign up form, and drop it in the blue mail box in the foyer.
We are asking parents, guardians, or other adults who drop-off students in the morning by car to utilize the valet service in the front of the school. Additionally, we ask for cooperation in the following two areas. First, please DO NOT PARK between the two light poles at the front of the school. This is considered a valet/drop off area only and you may be ticketed if you park there. Second, drivers should remain in the vehicle at all times. If you have young children who need special assistance leaving the car or walking to the playground, please do not use the drop-off. Instead, please park your car on the street and then walk them to class. Your cooperation is truly appreciated.
LOST AND FOUND
Avoid losing your child’s new sweater, jacket, lunch bag, or backpack by labeling these items with permanent marker. Your may also order labels at www.NaplesBayside.lovablelabels.ca. Items left on the playground at the end of the school day are placed in the Lost & Found bin in the foyer of the auditorium. Labeling items helps to ensure that they are returned in a timely manner.
