BGISD Inclement Weather Plans
BGISD Adopts 2016-2017 Calendar
The new year is the perfect time to consider what's next. We face a busy spring time filled with daily school work, games, trips, competitions, testing, and so much more we do here at Bowling Green. In looking at what's next, we recognize we can't do it alone.
Parents- Help us by being involved in your child's education, that they are at school every day and on time as much as possible. Help us ensure students' homework is done and that they are receiving additional help if need be. Help your child by discussing short-term and long-term goals with your child and to plan for the future.
Students- Help us being being active in school, working hard in all your classes, asking questions, and getting answers. Plan for your future and do not expect someone to hand it to you. If you didn't do as well as you should during the first semester, then learn from it and move on. Last semester is in the past and today is your future. It's yours! It's your 'what's next' we're talking about.
Community Members and Friends- Help us by reaching out and becoming our partner. Imagine if we were to partner together so that the very people and employees you want to hire are the ones you are helping to educate and support!
Thank you to all for your continued support. As we look at the new year, we invite everyone to participate in what's next. 2016 is the Year of the Bowling Green Purples!
