THANK YOU B-C-S COMMUNITY FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Dear B-C-S Community,


Today, we are celebrating for the students and future of B-C-S School District! Our 3.89 mil property tax was passed by voters yesterday and we are very thankful!! This was the first new money passed by voters in 18 years. The 1% earned income tax failed by only 50 votes.


On behalf of the Board and Treasurer, I am thankful to our community for their generous support on our property tax. This is a tremendous and much needed investment in our district.


We are going to continue to listen and talk to our community about the need for the earned income tax. We have more work to do. The district will be back on the ballot in August or November pending a decision by the Board.


We are very encouraged about what the future holds for B-C-S. There is a lot of Rocket Pride in this community!


Sincerely,


Guy L. Parmigian
Superintendent|Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools

Senior week #2!


This week B-C-S is featuring, Senior, Emily Lenke!


1. Please tell the B-C-S Community a little about yourself.

  • My name is Emily Lenke and I am a senior at Oak Harbor High School. I play soccer, basketball, and softball. I am also apart of 4-H, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and DECA.

2. What are your career plans and goals and how do you plan to achieve them?

  • After high school I will be attending the University of Northwestern Ohio for four years to study marketing. I’m not quite sure what type of marketing I’d like to have a career in but I hope to figure that out while taking my college courses. I plan on achieving my goals through hard work and perseverance.


3. What is your favorite high school memory?

  • There are so many memories that I will cherish from high school. Most of them are from participating in sports and in DECA. I loved being a part of a group and excelling with my team through sports. I’ve learned to overcome adversity which will help me in my future. DECA helped me break through my shell and overcome my shyness. It also showed me how marketing worked which then lead me to my decision on a marketing major.


4. What is the best advice you could give to underclassman?

  • The best advice I could give to an underclassman is to get involved in everything you can. You will make so many memories and meet new people. Stay focused in school because it will help you in the long run. Also try to enjoy your time in high school because I promise it goes by much faster than you think.

5. What’s on your bucket list this summer?

  • This summer I want to have as much fun as I can by maybe going to Cedar Point, Put-In-Bay, and spending time on the river. I’d also like to spend as much time with my friends as possible because in the fall we are all going to be hours away from each other.

B-C-S Food Service Department Spring 2018 Update

The B-C-S Food Service Department is dedicated to offering students healthy and appealing choices which contribute to a school environment that is conducive to learning, growth, and development. We understand that a hungry student lacks the ability to reach their highest learning potential. Therefore, we strive to feed as many students as we can, without sacrificing nutritional value or student health throughout the process. We adhere to strict nutritional and procedural standards set forth by the USDA, which funds the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program that we participate in. Without funding from this source, we would be forced to operate as a for-profit restaurant, and feel that would leave many students unable to afford school meals. We currently operate as a non-profit department, and are able to keep costs for students and families lower than average by wisely utilizing our funding and commodity food sources. USDA also requires that we follow a Buy American provision, to support business within the USA, and we follow strict procurement procedures for all products available in our cafeterias. We also operate within compliance of all local Health Department regulations.


We are in the process of building relationships with area businesses to provide fresh, local and healthy options that students recognize, trust, and enjoy. One example of this is the Pizza Hut pizza that was recently served at all B-C-S buildings. The pizzas are produced with a whole grain crust, low-fat cheese, and reduced fat and sodium formulation. Those pizzas are not typically available to the public, and were formulated specifically to comply with NSLP requirements. They are offered in many schools nation-wide. The Food Service Department will be reaching out to other area businesses that we feel may be able to partner with us to provide a wide variety of healthful options to students.


Our cafeterias also offer fresh fruits daily, including apples, bananas, oranges, and seasonal varieties of melons and berries. We offer fresh baby carrots, celery, broccoli, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and other seasonally available produce. Produce offering is subject to availability, and the majority of our districts’ produce is supplied as commodity product through the Department of Defense Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program. Most of our hot vegetable items are frozen, not canned, eliminating excess sodium and maintaining a high level of nutritional integrity. Salads, wraps, and alternative items are available daily, differing slightly by school and age group, should students decide they would not prefer the main entrée offerings.


Our department also recognizes, supports, and appreciates the growing movement of consumers towards being educated about nutritional value and responsible eating. We are happy to work with families to accommodate any dietary restriction supported by appropriate medical documentation, and will work to ensure that all parents and students are comfortable and satisfied with the choices available to them. Please feel free to share any feedback, concerns, or suggestions regarding student meals or the Food Service Department to trusch@bcssd.com. We are excited about the opportunity to grow and evolve along with our community in good health and education.

The End of the School Year is Upon US!

With the end of the school year upon us, the cafeterias will no longer be allowing any charging of meals so that we may attempt to settle all negative balances prior to the last day of school. If your child owes money in the lunchroom, they will be unable to charge meals, and parents will be responsible for providing their students lunches.


Please contact the Food Service Department at 419-898-6216 ext 2115 if you have any questions regarding student meals. Parents may visit www.payschoolscentral.com to view balances, account activity, and to place restrictions on student purchases."

R.C. Waters Highlight Top Class Dojo winners for the Month of March!

R.C. Waters Elementary participates in a school wide initiative. It is called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools by allowing a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn. R.C. Waters has adopted a unified set of expectations for behavior in our school. The unified classroom expectations, found in every classroom and non-classroom settings in the school, are as follows: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready.


Student behavior is documented using a tool called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a free behavior tracking system that reinforces positive behaviors and quickly engages students in becoming accountable for their own choices. One of the main benefits is the easy opportunity to communicate with parents.On a scheduled rotation, students are able to “shop” from the Dojo reward cart using the points they have earned for meeting the behavior expectations.
