Good afternoon Bay Brook Eagles,
As I mentioned earlier, our goal is to eliminate the blanket zoom links as soon as possible to ensure safe zoom experiences. The district is also conscious of this and has given important deadlines for this to occur. Please ensure that all students are logging into clever before the deadline. The zoom links should be easily seen and accessible from each virtual classroom in Class Dojo, Google Classroom, Seesaw, and Clever.
 
Thanks and have a great weekend!

Good afternoon Bay Brook Eagles,

This is Principal Licier with some very important information. First, I want to thank everyone for their patience as we get virtual learning underway. As of this morning, Most of our classrooms are over 85% attended with some classrooms only missing one parent to join on Class Dojo! I want to extend to you an opportunity that is being offered by the District at Bay Brook starting September 28th.

City Schools will be partnering with Baltimore City Parks and Rec to provide more than 1,000 students in-person access to their virtual learning lessons via 15 locations in both schools and city recreation centers.  The program is designed to provide students, in grades K-5, an opportunity to participate in virtual learning in small cohort groups led by a distance learning proctor.  The program with operate daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Prioritized consideration for the program will be for students of parents who continue to work in-person during the pandemic, students who were unable to actively participate in the spring virtual learning and homeless and foster care students.  If a family believes their student meets this criterial they will need to complete a survey using Parent Portal or by contacting the district office hotline 443-642-2001 choose Option 1. The survey will be available to families from now until September 11.

Good afternoon Bay Brook Eagles!

This is Principal Licier with some updates! First, I want to start by saying we sincerely apologize for any confusion regarding device distribution. The district team sent word that we should distribute devices but the logistics required that we delay that process. That will happen next week but the district has not yet given us the ok to begin. We already have the names based on our survey submitted before so calling you to set up an appointment should be pretty painless. There is so much to share with you! I can’t wait to get to know all of the parents and students and to let you know everything we have in store for you this coming school year. I will be scheduling several opportunities in the next week for you to meet with me virtually and to have a virtual school orientation. During the next month, we will also provide opportunities for you to come in personally, and tour the building if you would like. The schedule of activities will be posted on our school website and on class dojo by Close of Business Monday, August 31st.

Thank you so much, and have a blessed weekend.

Good afternoon Bay Brook Eagles Family,

My name is Christian Licier and I will be serving as your new principal this year! I am beyond excited to work with this community and provide your children with the best education Baltimore can offer. This year, there will be many changes to your students’ virtual learning experience. You will be hearing from me soon to provide important updates for virtual student and family orientations.

Currently, we are preparing to distribute computer devices to any student who still may not have one from last Spring. The distribution will begin next week, but because of our health situation, we will require that an appointment be made first before you come to pick them up. I will be sending a link to a quick survey that you can fill out that will help our staff contact you to set up an appointment. You may also call the school to set up an appointment. The Bay Brook staff is really excited to begin this school year and welcome all of you! Until then, stay safe and take care.

Click here to take the quick survey!

Respectfully,
Mr. Christian Licier

Greetings to all Bay Brook Faculty, Staff, Students, Parents and Community Stakeholders,

My name is Christian Licier and I am happy to introduce myself to you as your new Principal. In just a few short days, I have already felt a special energy in the Bay Brook community. The community has experienced a lot of change recently, from a new school building to new staff and an increase in new students. Learning has changed due to the pandemic crisis, driving us to look for new ways of learning. This change has clearly fostered hope and excitement in the Bay Brook community that is palpable. I am truly humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve and act as the catalyst for the future of this school and community.

Within the next few weeks you will be hearing more and more from me. I will take the time to reach out to all stakeholders during the summer weeks in an effort to learn everything I can about you and the school, including staff, students, parents and partners. My duty is to serve you all in this community and ensure that we achieve everything you hope for. My goal is simple: create and operate the best school that can provide an exceptional learning experience for all of its students. Working collaboratively, we will ensure we achieve that goal that our children deserve.

I can’t wait to put my energy, heart and soul into this community and this effort. I love Baltimore and I love our kids. Working together, we will build a world-class educational experience for them. We will build a culture that is so strong they’ll remember Bay Brook as adults. We will build a climate that is so supportive they will be able to grow into young men and women with strong character and respect for their community and each other. We will guide them in their quest to find their personal, unique voice. The world expects no less from us and we will meet that challenge.

For now, enjoy your weeks of summer. There is a lot of hard work ahead with a rewarding end.

Respectfully,
Mr. Christian Licier
Principal
