Wednesday, April 5
On Tuesday, the Facilities and Operational referendum questions on the ballot for the School District of Beloit fell short of being approved by voters. The School District of Beloit is grateful to those who worked hard on behalf of our students and staff.
My priorities for our district are unwavering. I believe in the importance of student academic achievement, continuous improvement, and service at the highest level. We will continue to support the social and emotional needs of our students and provide learning environments that ensure our students' academic success.
My role is to bring our school community together and to continue to collaborate with our community partners. Our district operates better when everyone is working together. As I mentioned in my reconfiguration letter, in the coming weeks there will be changes, but I want everyone to know that the administration will be here for you every step of the way.
We take pride in knowing that our community is filled with Purple Knights, carrying on our legacy. Thank you again for your overwhelming support.
Dr. Willie E. Garrison II
Superintendent, School District of Beloit
Beauty standards, hacking, and changing relationships: Beloit Memorial High School students share their social media worries.
Wisconsin Public Radio recently interviewed 11 students from BMHS for The Morning Show. They asked our students to share questions regarding social media. Our students' questions were thoughtful and articulate. Please take a moment to read the article or listen to the 45 minute radio program. Thank you to Alec, Amery, Cadler, Carter, Dawson, Jakendra, Maritza, Nashaun, Nolan, Trinity, and Xavier for representing our district and Beloit Memorial High School.
