|WELCOME BACK TO THE 2015-16 SCHOOL YEAR! |
WE ARE BR!!!!
Wow! What a great turnout we had in support of refreshing our high school and the surrounding landscape. I was informed this morning that we have over 350 people in total that participated! I look forward to next year's effort and believe BR DAYS will only grow bigger and better in the future! Please look for the summer edition of the BUZZ out later this week for pictures and more information regarding BR DAYS.
I wish to express thanks to Jeff Akins and his hardworking crew for all their efforts in making BR DAYS happen. We are fortunate to have such dedicated folks supporting our facilities. A shout out to Brandi Clark, Mary Ford, Candy Howard, Denise London, Rena Brady, Deanna Henderson, Jane Estes, Candy London, Jill Stidham and Teri Sorensen for their donations of time and effort and resources. Dave Clark, Jay Cox, Loren Webb, Greg Schimmel, Meghan Penrod, Clay Stidham, Josh Smith and Coach Bob London also played important roles within the BR DAYS effort. Way to go!
Lastly, I thought I would share of few of the comments that I heard this weekend regarding the BR DAYS effort:
The BR pride is back!
It feels good to be able to help!
I'm so glad we are taking more pride in our high school...it's all about pride
I really am glad I feel apart of what's going on!
How can I help? I want to do more!
...It's really about the BR pride, and I feel like that pride is returning!
Wow, can you believe all the difference we made today? This has been a lot of fun!
When are we going to paint the rest of our school? This looks so cool!
...It was so fun to see everyone working together and coming together in support of our kids!
Again, thanks to all that helped out this weekend and for your dedication to Our Mission and Vision! Go Jackets!

Digital Compass is a free, online educational game that addresses the key issues that kids face in the digital world – cyberbullying, privacy and security, creative credit and copyright, information literacy, Internet safety, digital footprint and reputation, self-image and identity, relationships and communication – and gives students the freedom to explore how their digital interactions may impact their real-life relationships and future opportunities.
In the 21st Century, it is essential for people to be aware of the rights and responsibilities that are related to digital citizenship. The lessons in Digital Compass have been developed from Common Sense Education’s K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum, and are valuable tools for parents, teachers, and students to improved digital safety and awareness.
