Principal Marg Moran Our school goal is to acquire a diverse range of reading materials. Developing a love of reading within our students will provide them with endless possibilities. West Bayfield celebrated it’s 25th anniversary this year. Our current reading collection is well read and in some cases materials are not current to meet the needs of our students. Providing our students with access to a wider selection of literature will foster the necessary skills to be successful in the future. In closing, we believe, “A book is a magical thing that lets you travel to far-away places without ever leaving your chair.” Katrina Mayer
