  • Happy Wednesday of computer science week, everyone!For today's quick computer science fact – Did you know that the first video game was made in 1962? It was called “Spacewar!”  However, it didn’t make any money at all - a far cry from Space Invaders which has made 13.8 billion dollars to date. With the Internet, you can play lots of different video games online, BUT - did you know if you go to Mr. Swaine's website, you also play Bayridge-made games made by amazing Bayridge students like Liam Anderson and Michael Cox!  Have fun!

Donations will be collected in a box just outside the front doors before school starts.  If you can contribute anything, it will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for your continued support for our community!
