Bay View values the importance of the arts and includes visual art
and music in our classroom learning. In addition to our creative
classroom teachers, we have Santa Cruz City School District art and
music teachers to provide additional standards-based instruction in
music and visual art.
We are dedicated
to working together to ensure the best arts experience possible for our
children. An art education provides an opportunity for self directed
learning and self expression, improves self esteem and confidence,
sharpens concentration skills, and is associated with academic success
in math and reading.

their child's artwork. These beautiful, colorful cards are a great way
to celebrate your child's creativity. They also wonderful gifts for
relatives and family friends!
Art Cards will be coming out in May for Mother's Day. Details will be sent out in a Monday folder in April.
The annual Fourth Grade mural project

project not only beautifies the campus but also provides students an

their own unique public art. Students
