    Pi Day @ Baylis!

    This year, Baylis took a digital approach to Pi Day.  Students in grades two through five participated in a "Pi Day Digital Breakout".  Breakout EDU, is the immersive learning games platform Dr. Kelly used to design age appropriate digital breakouts for Pi Day that turned our classrooms into an academically-focused escape rooms! Teachers were able to facilitate activities in which players used teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open the digital locks to "breakout".  Fifth grade Project Beyond students used their leadership skills to support some second and third grade classes as they attempted to breakout!

    Additionally, our first grade teachers created amazing Pi Day activities that focused on creativity and transformational thinking.  The students transformed circles and Pi shapes into characters and other creative ideas!

    Baylis PARP Pick a Reading Partner

    The PTA organized a special week to celebrate reading at Baylis.  On Monday students experienced a Prismatic Magic Laser Light Show which got students excited about reading through giant laser images projected on a large screen.  The engaging and bright images showed students how to read using their mind to imagine places, characters and ideas.

    On Tuesday at 2:45 all students and staff participated in D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read).  All around the school Baylis was hooked in a book reading wherever they were to show the importance of reading in our lives.

    On Wednesday, the author David Schwartz presented to our students about his life as an author, his inspirations for writing and passion for math and science. David shared some of his books and the math equations that went into helping his write his stories. 

    On Thursday, Baylis student alumni from Syosset High School came back to visit their former elementary school teachers.  Elementary students were happy to share in a read aloud from the alumni.  

    Happy 100th Day!
