Bayside Update and SIS Scholarship Opportunity

Dear Bayside Parents,

Our grade 12 students will return tomorrow from their retreat in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Our 24 Seniors and their Advisors have been at a 5-day retreat where they participated in a variety of adventures and activities designed to help them transition to life after high school. On Friday, May 31 they will graduate from SIS with their high school diplomas. We’re very proud of this outstanding group of people and we wish them the very best in their futures!
