There is one more school supply we are asking our students and parents to bring for our first day tomorrow and that is PATIENCE! Please remember that the first few days of school are challenging for just about everyone. There are bound to be a few hiccups along the way. We ask for your understanding as we get back to work at BCS.
The countdown is on! Superintendent Chad Yencer welcomed returning and new staff during the Back to School Breakfast at BJSHS. During the meeting, Mr. Yencer congratulated MSG Rick Kauffman for being named National JROTC Instructor of the Year! #BetterAtBlackford

Let's be clear- Per CDC mandate, masks are required on all public transportation, including school buses. ALL students in grades kindergarten through 12th, bus drivers and aides (unless there is a medical exemption) are REQUIRED to wear masks on school buses. This is a change from last school year for our BCS families (and us) and we want to make sure everyone is aware.
More scenes from today's TransformEd workshop with Matt Miller at BJSHS. Miller encouraged BCS teachers to take their dreams seriously. "Your dreams won't impact your students unless you're treating them seriously." #BetterAtBlackford
