Career Internships

Published on 04/15/2014 at 9:02 a.m. by aroach

Last Semester, some students in Jessica Robbin's Gifted and Talented group signed up for professional internships. This January twenty-first, these students met with local professionals that were deemed ideal to be their mentors. These students are now almost done with their internships in careers spanning from computer programming to wildlife park range service, giving them early steps into their chosen fields. This program is expected to return next year, with a whole new batch of interns and mentors, giving even more kids experience in the work world. In the future, good things will come of this, but what things, only time will tell.

Gatsby Themed Prom is a Success!

Published on 04/15/2014 at 8:46 a.m. by aroach

Prom night was certainly a night to remember for the students of Bayfield High School. The entryway of the casino was decorated with lights and sparkly decorations that were made by the junior prom committee. A sign reading "Club Gatsby" welcomed everyone to the dance floor. Seniors Maggie Zink and Ruben Renteria were crowned prom queen and king of the dance. It was a fabulous night ending in a fabulous after-party. The bowling alley was open from midnight to one allowing everyone to compete against one another. Caleb Sapa won a prize for having the highest bowling score and Jessica Cusick with the lowest. Other activities that were taking place were a competitive pingpong tournament, bouncy house obstacle course and boxing matches, and a crazy game of dodgeball. At the end of the after party, names were drawn to win the "big" prizes including TVs, headphones, gas cards, gift cards etc. It was an excellent night filled with dancing, games, food and many other activities.

Math Videos at BMS

Published on 04/15/2014 at 8:41 a.m. by mgrayson


Bayfield Middle School’s 6th grade Challenge Program created videos as part of the Math Counts Video Challenge. Students formed teams of four students each to create a video that teaches the solution to one of the problems from the 2013-2014 MATHCOUNTS School Handbook. The videos were created in a “Common Craft” style using cutouts to help explain the problems “in Plain English.” The boys chose to explain Math Counts right square pyramid surface area problem #213 and ice cream combinations problem #102, while the girls chose an elapsed time problem #13.

Dodgeball Tournament

Published on 03/19/2014 at 8:41 a.m. by aroach

The dodgeball tournament held at Bayfield High School on March 17th was an absolute success! About $325 was raised for the Make a Wish foundation that the school district is participating in this year. Eight teams played in double elimination games of dodgeball. The entry fee was twenty dollars per team. The winning team was Zach Kujath, Kyle Killough, Jesse Hunt, Cameron Seivert, Chris Kane, Max Miller, Maggie Baxter, and Celeste Faumui. It gave students and teachers a chance to participate in exciting and competitive dodgeball games with one another and was all for a great cause. Mrs. Aveis donated the concession money made that night to the foundation as well. The high school is getting closer and closer to their goal with two more fundraisers this week. The dodgeball tournament was an excellent way to get the students and staff involved in a great fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation.
