January is School Board Recognition Month

Big picture
In the BSD, we are very fortunate to have seven volunteer school board members who are committed to helping every student reach their full potential: Chair Becky Tymchuk, Vice Chair Tom Collett and members Anne Bryan, Susan Greenberg, LeeAnn Larsen, Eric Simpson and Donna Tyner. The decisions that board members face are complex and challenging, especially this year. They volunteer hundreds of hours, providing the best possible educational framework for our nearly 40,000 students. This month, we recognize their vital contributions and the crucial role that they play in the education of our children. Thank you, board members!

Kinnaman 3D Club Builds Community

Led by Kinnaman Elementary teacher Michael Reed, the 3D Club brings together students who have an interest in 3D printing. Students meet once a week to learn how to design and build 3D models on the computer. Mr. Reed then prints the models and distributes them to the students. This club has been a great way to build connection and community during distance learning.

Meadow Park Middle School at-Home PE Kits


This fall, the P.E. team at Meadow Park Middle School has been collecting athletic equipment donations to be distributed to students. Led by teacher Jennifer Hoffman, the school has assembled kits that include jump ropes, playground balls, resistance bands and more. In addition, an online curriculum has been developed to demonstrate how to stay active using the equipment.

Thank you to Meadow Park Middle School families, Donor's Choose donors and Sunset Athletic Club for monetary and equipment donations. Thank you to the Meadow Park staff for supporting this project.

Reminder: Wednesday is a Synchronous Learning Day

CTE - Career Technical Education

Big picture

CTE programs engage high school students in high-quality, rigorous and relevant classes, designed to help them turn their passions into paychecks and their dreams into careers. CTE programs partner with local businesses and industry to create opportunities that promote creativity, innovation and leadership, which are relevant to the job market of today.

We have created a series of videos, titled “Grads Talking Shop,” to highlight some of the 32 CTE programs across our six comprehensive high schools and one option high school. In this episode of "Grads Talking Shop," we explore the world of manufacturing through the eyes of Tony Varela, alum of the BSD manufacturing program. This program is available to students from any of our comprehensive high schools and is housed at Westview High School. Transportation is provided.
