   Luckily, as COVID-19 regulations are slowly lifted, Bay View Academy students can start in-person events clubs back again. We have also been fortunate enough to add one new club to our school, the Chemistry Club! The members of this exciting new club are working to help students struggling or falling behind academically. As a club, they have made moles celebrate National mole day! Meanwhile, the Italian Club and Environmental Club went to the Friends of the Blackstone River in Manville to clean up the conservation and plant trees. The girls had fun being together while also serving their community! As a thank you, the Friends of the Blackstone owners gave everyone a blue marble to take with them. 

   Additionally, the Book Club has announced that they will be meeting to discuss the book, The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas, a mystery book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. More information is located in the BVA morning reception! On top of all of these fun events, Mercy Action was happy to host the first Coffeehouse since the pandemic began. Many wonderful acts were performed by talented performers, including Mr. Barry, who moved us all with a beautiful song on the guitar. Everybody enjoyed themselves while talking, laughing, and playing Just Dance. Lastly, the members of the Ambassadors Club are finally able to visit parochial schools in-person to share all about Bay View with potential students. As an Ambassador, I have visited Sacred Heart School in East Providence and St. Augustine School in Providence. The eighth-grade girls seemed genuinely interested in shadowing Bay View for a day. Ambassadors are also getting ready for the Open House on Sunday, November Fourteenth! Our school has done so much in the first two months! This being said, there is never a dull moment at the Bay!
