BGISD Maintenance Saves Bee Hive for BGHS

During a recent storm, a large tree fell at Parker-Bennett Curry Elementary. When our BGISD Maintenance crew went to clear the tree from the grounds, they discovered a bee hive inside. Not only did they relocate the hive across town to BGHS for us, they've also provided some shielding for the bees till they can be placed this spring in the newest soon-to-be-constructed beehive box here at BGHS.

What's Next

One of my favorite TV shows in recent memory was a political drama titled The West Wing, focusing on fictitious President of the United States, Josiah Bartlett, and his staff as they navigate the highs and lows during his tenure of office. Throughout the seven years the show aired, President Bartlett's most repeated phrase was, "What's next?" This phrase has stayed with me as I've thought about our school and our students.

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!
