    The first quarter is moving along quickly. The First Day of School, Back to School Night and those first weeks of school seem so far away. The school year is now in full swing. I’m so excited about the great things happening at John Bayne. We are working to improve student achievement, family engagement and attendance. Many activities are planned this month for us to come together, build relationships and make John Bayne the best it can be! A special thank you goes out to our custodial team. We appreciate them for the way they keep our school running smoothly.

    As you may know, we have been awarded a Kaboom! Multi-Sports Court grant. As a result, our students will receive a new, start of the art playspace. We need the entire John Bayne community to come together to build our new court. Please register today! Kaboom! Build Day Registration

    Our 1st quarterly Family Night, Family STEAM Night, will allow students to participate in hands on activities. Research shows that the more families understand and take part in their child’s school work and activities, the more likely that child will succeed academically. A huge thank you goes out to the ladies of Prince George’s Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. for joining us.
