Bayview Honors Beloved Police


As part of an annual tradition, fourth-graders at Bayview honored Village of Freeport police officers with heartwarming cards and a choral performance at the Adopt-a-Cop Valentine’s Day Luncheon. Each class presented the special guests with colorful creations that served to thank them for their dedication to keeping them safe day in and day out. The officers were then treated to lunch in the cafeteria as another token of appreciation.

Super Spellers

Bayview fourth-grader Savannah Dixon won the school’s Spelling Bee by correctly spelling the word, “vocabulary.” Second-place winner was Hannah Islas. Dixon will be representing the school in the Scripps Spelling Bee at Hofstra on Feb. 5.

Principal Odette Wills and Assistant Principal Alma Rocha, along with all Bayview staff, are proud of Dixon, Islas and the participants of the Spelling, and wish Dixon luck as she moves on.

Students Help Out

Bayview students hosted the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society student series, “Learning to Make Someday Today” campaign kickoff. As part of the event, students watched “You’re Never Too Young to Help Others,” and then collected change to help support the organization. Students learned about the importance of being in position to help save lives, and the donations helped fund more effective therapies.
