The PTA organized a special week to celebrate reading at Baylis.  On Monday students experienced a Prismatic Magic Laser Light Show which got students excited about reading through giant laser images projected on a large screen.  The engaging and bright images showed students how to read using their mind to imagine places, characters and ideas.

On Tuesday at 2:45 all students and staff participated in D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read).  All around the school Baylis was hooked in a book reading wherever they were to show the importance of reading in our lives.

On Wednesday, the author David Schwartz presented to our students about his life as an author, his inspirations for writing and passion for math and science. David shared some of his books and the math equations that went into helping his write his stories. 

On Thursday, Baylis student alumni from Syosset High School came back to visit their former elementary school teachers.  Elementary students were happy to share in a read aloud from the alumni.
