Students aren’t the only ones in a digital transformation; so are parents, teachers, and our school office. Only a few years ago we send home a weekly paper newsletter, paper report cards, and we send home flyers or alerts with students or put them on TV or the radio. Now we have our Bay View Webpage, our on-line newsletter, Bay View News which is updated instantly, emailed daily announcements, PowerSchool, our on-line grade book, phone alerts, and more recently Facebook and Twitter. You can support your child best if you are digitally transforming with him/her. Be sure to take advantage of all of these resources to stay informed and stay connected.
