I am honored to serve as your principal and welcome you to the 22-23 school year.  Bay Meadows has a history of high achievement due to the outstanding faculty and staff working together with the students, families and community.  Our PTA has earned several awards and recognitions for the programs supporting the school.  It is my goal to help BMES continue as an rated school and be one of the top performing schools in OCPS.   

 We are STEAM  (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) Career Academy. The magnet program provides students with cross curricular learning opportunities through the exploration of STEAM careers.  Teachers in all grades incorporate STEAM project-based learning through thematic units of study.  Students are being prepared for 21st Century careers and the necessary skills of problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration.  

 Mrs. Hinton, assistant principal, and I are excited to welcome back our students with this year’s theme “Bay Meadows Elementary has S.W.A.G. - Students Working to Achieve Greatness”  

 Thank you for following us on social media, exploring our website and supporting our students and teachers throughout the year.  Please register as an ADDitions volunteer and become involved through PTA and our SAC.  

Ms. Joann Dorries, Principal
Ms. Tami Hinton, Assistant Principal
