Info for Students…
A message from the Principal, Ms. MacDonald: I had the privilege to attend the Whistler 2018 Con Brio Music Festival with Ms. Aitchison and her Gr. 8 Master Band. They performed three pieces for the festival and were adjudicated. Results were picked up by Ms. Aitchison and they were awarded GOLD. Congratulations to our Gr. 8 Master Band for working hard and being a strong and supporting community for each other!
Last week, as you are aware, our Gr. 6 and Gr. 7 Bands attended a festival in which they both received GOLD. Congratulations to our Gr. 6, 7 & 8 Bands – first time in Bayside history for all three grade levels to bring home golds in the same year!
Lost cell phone – A friendly Bayside neighbour has lost his black iphone 6 nearby and is hoping someone here may have found it. He is offering a cash reward upon return. If you have any information to share, please come by the office.
With the WE ARE SILENT event only 3 days away, it’s time to bring in your $5.00 to get signed up with your homeroom teacher, if you haven’t done so already. You can even sponsor a friend by paying $5.00 for them to take on the challenge. Remember, each student who participates will get to be in a draw for a Mayfair Mall gift card. Let’s see how quiet we can make Bayside this Thursday.
Have you ordered your Bayside Yearbook yet? Deadine to order is April 30th. Check the office window to see if your name is on the list for having pre-ordered. The cost is $35. Don’t miss out, as quantities are limited.
On Tues Apr 24th, Wed Apr 25th and Fri Apr 27th some students from Div 76 will be raising money for dogs in need. All proceeds will go to Mex-Can dog rescue.

Cost to guess for smaller jars is $0.75 for one or $1.25 for two; for bigger jars, $1.00 for one or $1.50 for two. See you tomorrow for your first chance to guess!
