Tune in every Monday for #MakeADifferenceMonday where we will feature a stakeholder, student, or fellow alumni answering "Five questions for B-C-S"

This week B-C-S is featuring, Middle School Secretary: Jackie Macko!

1. How many years have I been involved with B-C-S Schools?

  • I have been employed at B-C-S for 20 years. I began as a program assistant/site director at Acorn Alley, then a library assistant, classroom assistant, and finally my ultimate goal which was to be a school secretary.

2. What is your favorite part about being Secretary at the middle school?

  • I like the work I do as a secretary which involves many duties from answering the phone, to making bank deposits, to running report cards, and more. I love my job because of all of those things, but the best part of being a secretary at the middle school is being able to see many students and staff members throughout the day.

3. Do you have a favorite lunch form the cafeteria?

  • Oh, yes! My all-time favorite is cheese toasties and tomato soup. I also like (don’t see these offered at this time) is the frosted peanut butter bars. YUM!

4. What is a typical day like for you?

  • My day begins at 7 a.m. and I typically work until 3:30 p.m. I begin by checking the phone for voicemails, set-up our attendance spreadsheet, turn on the coffee maker (very important), and greet students and staff members as they enter the office. Once school is session, I help Mrs. Sandwisch with attendance, and other tasks as assigned or needed throughout the day. Once I leave work at the middle school, I go home to greet our cat named Binx, and Dachsund whose name is Max. Then I wait for Mr. Macko to come home from his job, prepare and eat dinner, and usually have some sort of meeting to go, such as Oak Harbor Village Council. If I am lucky enough, I may get to see my daughters, Allison and Emily and my two precious grandchildren, Lydia and Lincoln. I may even get to go to a music rehearsal, where I get to play my trumpet, or enjoy an evening out with friends. Beyond that, I can’t wait to be home home with my husband, pets, and relax for the evening!

5. What is your favorite season of the year?

  • This is a tough one for me, as each season offers something that I love and enjoy. But, if I were to pick one, it would have to be autumn. The reason would be that I love beautiful rich colors and autumn offers those colors, all thanks to mother nature!

B-C-S Pre-school Earns 5 Star Rating from State

As acknowledgement for our commitment to early childhood education and our drive to exceed licensing health and safety regulations, our BCS Preschool Program, operated by North Point Educational Service Center, has garnered a 5 Star Rating.

The 1-5 star rating system is administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Preschool Programs funded by the Ohio Department of Education must earn at a minimum a 3 star rating. In order to achieve a higher rating, districts must meet all standards for a 3 star rated program and gain extra points through Learning and Development, Administrative and Leadership Practices, Staff Qualifications and Professional Development, Family and Community Partnerships, and Ratio and Accreditation.

Preschool is an integral part of a child’s education; it is the foundation from which they will continue to build for years to come. We are honored to be a part of your community and proud to be a stand out in early childhood education.

B-C-S Director of Student Services Jim Boss commented: "Mrs. Krupp and the entire staff at the B-C-S Preschool provide an outstanding educational experience for our students. This remarkable achievement is a direct result of their hard work and commitment to excellence."
