November 7, 2018

 

 

 

Well, they did it again.  Our high school girls’ cross country team has won the State Academic Championship for the fourth consecutive year.  What an amazing feat!  Obviously, we want our athletic teams to do well but it is extremely satisfying to see our students flourish academically too.  I want to commend our faculty as well as these students’ parents on a job well done in support of these young ladies.

 

Our high school football team is also to be congratulated for making the playoffs for the first time since 2007.  After playing a very difficult non-conference schedule, they were able to finish in third place in the district. I appreciate how well they have represented us throughout this season.

 

I am excited to announce that after providing our 9th-12th graders with laptops for use in English and Math classes last year, we have just acquired new chromebooks for grades 4, 5 and 6.  New testing requirements will demand that from 4th grade on up, students must perform state testing on computers.  Paper/pencil testing is no longer permitted.  This purchase will allow our students to better prepare for testing. 

 

During the past year, our teachers have been receiving professional development in Google Classroom.  This system helps educators to better provide instruction to students as well as allow our students to learn and use improved technology.  Our overall plan is to purchase more chromebooks over the next few years until every student in grades 4 – 12 has their own laptop for school use.

 

Previously, our school has used Apple Ipads intermittently throughout the district.  These Ipads are now being provided to our primary classes, grades PK-3, because they are much easier to operate for young students.

 

Keeping up with technology is very important in today’s society.  The students of today are tomorrow’s workforce.  They must have every opportunity to be prepared for the challenges to come.  We at BFDC Schools will constantly strive to provide those opportunities for our young people. 

 

Respectfully,
