Baylis Science & Technology Fair 2017

On Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 260 Baylis students participated in the school’s Science and Technology Fair. Kindergarten through fifth-graders displayed approximately 130 projects in the gymnasium.

Many collaborated to design experiments and find answers to their hypotheses, creating models to demonstrate their unique inventions. From robotic garbage cans to making the best slime, students used inquiry and creativity in conducting scientific investigations. Teachers were impressed by how eloquently students displayed their projects. During a 60-minute evening program, students also explained the “science” behind their projects to fellow students and family members.

Have you ever seen “elephant” toothpaste or walking water? How about geodes made from eggs? Ever wonder which species breathes faster – goldfish or humans? Ever wonder how much iron is in your cereal? If you attended the Baylis Science and Technology Fair, you would have learned about all of these and much more! It was an exciting and educational experience for children of all ages!

Oh My! Characters Come to Life at the Baylis Wax Museum

Third-grade Baylis students celebrated learning as they presented the annual Wax Museum. Students dressed in costume as their favorite fictional characters and silently portrayed them, bringing their stories to life. Parents were invited into their child’s classrooms for a brief tale of fiction delivered through each student’s voice. The presentations marked the culmination of a character study unit in reading and literary essay unit of writing, while the wax museum provides a fun exercise for young children to share their knowledge and love of characters with the entire Baylis school community.

Baylis Celebrates PARP Week

Baylis hosted several activities in celebration of PARP week! Baylis alumni (current Syosset High School students) came back for a special visit to read a selection of award-winning picture books to current Baylis students. The staff was excited to host their former students in their classrooms. Additionally, the entire school participated in “Drop Everything and Read,” an activity in which all students and staff spontaneously took out their favorite book and read for fun. The PTA also hosted an author presentation with Max Brallier, who expressed his passion for creative writing and shared some of his childhood experiences as inspiration for his books. During the “Buddy Up and Read” activity classrooms were paired together to celebrate reading with new partners. As a culminating event, students wore their favorite jerseys to support Student Council’s “Wear a Jersey” Spirit Day.

While Baylis students enjoyed all these special reading experiences, the school continues to celebrates its love of reading every day.
