Dear Bayside Parents,
Here is a list of upcoming important events at Bayside:
Progress Reports – Progress reports will be available this Friday, April 13 after 1:15 pm on the Gecko portal. Students will not receive a paper copy but they will have access to the reports on Friday during advisory time. You can access the progress report by logging into the Gecko portal or, if you would like a printed copy, you can ask your child to print the report during their advisory time.
Gecko Portal Log In Help – If you need help logging into the Gecko portal you can visit this site for tutorials. There is also a link to request your login credentials if you have forgotten your username and password. Once you have logged in successfully you can follow these instructions to change your password.
ACAMIS HS Soccer Tournament – Our HS soccer teams departed today for their final tournament in Shanghai hosted by the British International School Shanghai (Puxi). Go Geckos!
PRC Basketball Tournaments – This Saturday our 4 MS boys and girls basketball teams (2 of each!) will be playing in Pearl River Conference exchanges at the American International School of Guangzhou (AISG), The International School of Macau (TIS), Shen Wai School (SWIS), and Quality Schools International Shenzhen (QSI). These “exchanges” are a day where several teams come together and play games. They are not tournaments and no champions are decided. These important games help all of the teams develop in actual game situations without the pressure of wanting to win the tournament. Go Geckos!
Student-Involved Conferences on Monday and Tuesday, April 16-17 – Student-Involved Conferences are an opportunity for parents, together with their child, to meet with teachers. It is important that your child attend the conference with you. We ask parents to sign up for a 2-hour time block to meet with all of their child’s teachers. (If you have more than one child you must sign up for more than one time block.) All of the teachers will be stationed on the first floor at Bayside in the music rooms, the drama room, in the cafe area, and in the amphitheater. Parents will be free to move around the first floor and meet with teachers for up to 10 minutes. If you need to meet longer, you can schedule a time to come in another day and continue your conversation. We require parents to sign up ahead of time for these conferences. We will honour the time of those who signed up so no “drop ins” are allowed.
Conference Sign Up Link – Please follow this link to SignUpGenius to sign up for a Student-Involved Conference time. **Please note that Mr. Galvez will not be available on Monday, April 16 to discuss PE and Life Skills.
