It's Friday at BCS and things seem mostly back to normal after our 100 Days of School Celebration. We may need to check in with our preschoolers though. It looks like they were hit especially hard with both age and cuteness! #100DaysOfSchool #BetterAtBlackford

One of the highlights of Tuesday evening's school board meeting was recognizing outstanding student achievement at BIS.

The three students were joined by BIS Principal Jim Fox. Other students receiving the honor who were unable to attend the meeting included: Jackson Alfrey, Riley Stein and Myla Neuenschwander. Keep up the great work, Bruins! #BetterAtBlackford
