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.


Mrs. Bertapelle submitted and won a book grant through the Meemic Foundation. The Award Ceremony took place on January 23rd. Mr. Thomson, from the Thomson Agency, a Meemic affiliate, presented the check to Mrs. Bertapelle at the Farragut School. Mrs. Bertapelle's students and Mrs. Plant's students, Mrs. Thill, Mrs. Ginac and Ms. Short were in attendance. The grant money of $500, will be used to purchase math textbooks for our students. Thank you to Meemic for offering this valuable award!

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.

Before break, our talented BCA students had the opportunity to perform in front of a huge crowd here at the Madison Arts Campus auditorium. They had the time of their lives as did we. There was a lot of time involved in the preparation and engagement of these performances and wow did it show! From Kindergarten to Ninth grade, our students shined. Take a look at some of the wonderful pictures that were captured.

Our secondary choir put on quite the show! In this musical performance, we had a full cast made up of dancing elves, a barn full of reindeers, frosty snowmen, tapping toys, a crystal snowflake, and of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus. This was a terrific production put on by our Music teachers: Mrs. Messbarger and Mrs. Williams as well as our Language Arts teacher, Mrs. Feehery. This took a lot of hard work and dedication which our students had much of. We want to thank everyone for coming. We are looking forward to future entertaining events for you and your families.
