NAPLES BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS
What a wonderful evening! Classrooms were full as teachers shared their expectations for a productive school year. Parents learned about Common Core Standards, the new MIND program, classroom and behavior standards, curriculum, special events, volunteer opportunities, after school programs and PTA information. Thank you for making your child’s education a priority and fitting this into your busy schedule.

PICTURES WITH CLASS – PHOTO DAY
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13
(CHANGE FROM OCTOBER 6)
“Pictures with Class” will be taking our school photos again this year. They are based in Los Alamitos and provide photos for many of our neighboring schools. They will be taking the class pictures in front of the school as well as individual photos in the auditorium. Please make sure your child is in uniform attire. As there are no re-takes for the class photo, it is important that your student be in attendance. There will be no order forms or pre-payment required. All students will have their photo taken with three different poses on a standard plain background. Within a month, parents will receive a proof sheet and order form from which they may select the pose and background of their choice. Orders may be turned into the office or ordering may be done on-line. Picture packets will arrive in time for the holidays!
UPDATE YOUR EMERGENCY INFORMATION
The beginning of the school year is the time for you to update your emergency information on ParentVUE. For those parents new to Naples, ParentVUE is a website that allows you to view your child’s information including attendance, report cards, state and district test results and much more. It is imperative that you take time to update this site, because without it our emergency information for your child will not be current. If you have not activated your account, you will need an activation code letter that can be obtained from the office. Directions for creating and updating your ParentVUE account are on the bookcase in the foyer.
HALLOWEEN PARADE – OCTOBER 30 AT 1:45
On Friday, October 30 we would like to invite all students to participate in our annual Halloween Parade at
1:45 p.m. Students will come to school in their normal uniform and bring their costume in a bag. At 1:30, students will be able to put on their costumes and prepare for the parade. The parade is “G” rated and all costumes should be appropriate for all age groups. The following will help you and your child make their costume decisions:
Please remember that we do not want to frighten any of our younger children. What students choose to wear to the parade does not have to define what students are going to be for Halloween. This is a fun community event and we appreciate your guidance for costume selection. Miss Flynn is available if students want to check if a costume is appropriate, but this should happen well in advance of the parade. Thank you for your kind support.
The Naples Bayside Academy PTA is proud to sponsor our 13th annual Jog-a-thon to raise money for continued support for our school programs. Jog-a-thon will be held on the playground Friday, November 13 during school hours. More information will be coming home soon.
Raising money for our school can be as easy as clipping box tops. Last year we raised $591- just by clipping boxtops!
