Congratulations BCSC Teachers and Staff Members of the Year
Honorees will be celebrated in a special virtual ceremony in May attended by family and friends. That's also when the overall BCSC Teacher and Staff Member of the Year will be announced. Thank you to all BCSC staff for what you do for our students and families every day!
*Because of its small staff, Harris honors a staff member on alternate years. ALPHA and ECC rotate between teacher and staff member annually.*

BCSC WELCOMES WEBB + JOHNSON ACCEPTS POSITION
At the March 8 meeting of the BCSC Board of School Trustees, the Board approved Shayla Webb as the Coordinator of Equity and Diversity. Mrs. Webb most recently served as the Diversity and Inclusion Program Manager for the State of Indiana. “I am eager to work alongside Dr. Snapp to advance equity and diversity in BCSC. This work is paramount in ensuring that our children can learn in an environment free of discrimination and fear,” says Webb. Mrs. Webb and her husband Marlon and two children are already part of the Brownsburg community.
Also at the March 8 meeting, the BCSC Board of School Trustees approved Laurie Johnson as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction. Johnson will assume this role after the retirement of Julie Vanliew in June. In her 10th year at BCSC, she currently serves as Principal of Brownsburg West Middle School (BWMS). Johnson is excited to take on this new challenge, “While I will always cherish my time as the principal of West Middle School, I am thrilled to be focusing on the work of curriculum and instruction and working alongside all of the schools in this amazing district.” Laurie and her husband Nicholas reside in Brownsburg with their two children. The search for the new BWMS Principal is nearing completion with an announcement to be made by mid-April.

BCSC Food and Clothing Pantry
The BCSC Food Pantry launched in the summer of 2014 through a partnership with Gleaners Food Bank. Thanks to the hard work of community and staff volunteers and Applied Skills students in the Collaborators for Success program at BHS, the pantry has served over 18,000 people and 4,800 families since 2014. BCSC families have also contributed donations to help make the pantry such a great resource for our community.
The pantry is open again on April 15th from 3pm-5:30pm in a drive thru setting and always on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays of the month. Visitors can use door #7 at the ALPHA/Harris Academy building, 725 C South Green Street.
