Our Lower Elementary classrooms teamed up and wrote research papers on a specific Olympic event. The events included: bobsledding, curling, ice hockey, figure skating, snowboarding, and skiing. Students created visuals to present along with their report. Parents and guardians were encouraged to come and take a walk through their "Olympic museums" and see all of the talent that was being possessed.

One of our very own 2nd graders here at Bay City Academy, Isaac Hales stood before a large crowd at the Tri-City Area Mensa Club and delivered a phenominal presentation on Outer Space. His poster of the solar system contained detailed facts about each planet. He discussed more than just planets though; he talked about terrestrial planets and then lead into gas giants. Isaac is the second youngest member of the Tri-City Area Mensa Club which is specifically for people with high IQs with the youngest being his brother, Eli Hales, one of our Kindergarteners here at BCA. While giving his speech, Isaac had a request: a crayon to add the Andromeda Galaxy to the poster. We are so proud of Isaac and his great accomplishments and are glad to say what school you belong to.

Bay City Academy would like to welcome all 1st-9th grade students to join the BCA Lumberjack Basketball Team. The focus of this season will be sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, and fundamental basketball skills.  


All basketball practice sessions, outside of game play, will be conducted in a circuit scenario. At separate hoops, coaches will teach a unique skill and incorporate a small amount of verbal instruction, demonstration, and skill practice. The remainder of the session will involve a group activity that involves all of the athletes.    


Each Friday student athletes from grades 4-9 will play games to display their skills learned throughout the week. Scrimmages may be scheduled to improve the overall basketball experience and add to the excitement of building the Lumberjack basketball program.


The cost of attending the eight skills sessions and four games days will be $25.00 per student. Grades 1-3 will have a reduced cost of $20.00 due to no Friday Game Play. Please include the student’s t-shirt size and payment when returning this form. Checks should be made out to Smart Schools Management Company.
