5 Bayside Is Expanding Its Library Collection! Bayside High School is excited to announce a new way to access digital media with OverDrive. An extension of our school library, OverDrive will give you 24/7 access to a large collection of popular fiction, non-fiction, test prep books, and even audiobooks! No more boring weekends or vacations; with OverDrive you can checkout exciting new books to read on your computer, phone, or whatever device you prefer. Never worry about getting your book back to the library on time either; with OverDrive your books are returned automatically at the end of the checkout period. Ready to get started? Follow these steps: 1. Bayside’s OverDrive collection can be accessed several ways. There is a BPS OverDrive icon on your Launchpad (if you don’t see it, simply add it with your plus symbol). Select Bayside High School from the dropdown, and then type in your student (or faculty/staff) ID in the box and click Sign In. OR 2. Go to brevardfl.libraryreserve.com, select Bayside High School from the dropdown, and again type in your student ID.
OR 3. Download the OverDrive app from your device’s app store, create an account, find Brevard Public School Libraries and save it as a favorite. Again, you will be prompted to put in your student ID before “checking out” any materials. 4. Once you’re in, you’ll see hundreds of available titles.

FIRST Robotics Competition Results

Our team showed up at the Orlando Regional competition with an incomplete robot that needed work to get it past the inspection process, weighed in, and programmed to communicate with the competition field. We were short on adult mentors this year and our students struggled to get the robot working to meet all of the goals of the competition. When we arrived Thursday, March 9th for weigh-ins and inspection, the students worked all day to get the robot through the approval process and by Friday morning, March 10th, we made our first match and won! We proceeded to go on and win 3 of our 5 matches on March 10th, competing against other teams whose robots were built by/repaired by adults. To end up in 16th place by the end of the day was an accomplishment. On Saturday, March 11th, the students won the first match and lost our second, and in our final match of the day, our robot was climbing a 4’ strand of rope for bonus points. At the end of the match, when our climbing mechanism broke and our robot crashed to the ground, we were placed 35th out of 63 teams. Our pit crew did an outstanding job learning to work under pressure and trouble-shooting a multitude of hardware and software problems. There is nothing closer to real-world experience than this competition (when the students are the ones allowed to do the work). Each of our seniors walked away with a $60,000 scholarship to Florida Tech. With over $480,000 in scholarships that weekend, we would say that was a win for Bayside! Congratulations to all competitors.

National Art Competition
Bayside’s art classes submitted 15 of the 330,000 art works that were sent to the National competition. Two of our students won a regional award and although they will not compete at the national level (gold key status), we are very proud of their accomplishment. Destiny Almonte was a Silver Key award winner for her painting entitled “Genocide”. This same piece won Best in Show at Bayside’s Annual Student Art Show. Lexine Sibert won an Honorable Mention for her painting, “Beyond What’s Outside”.
