Our teachers are working hard this summer in professional development activities! Teachers from BPS and BIS attended the Smekens CompCon conference in French Lick earlier this week! After working with the Comprehension Playbook last school year, teachers came to this conference to expand their knowledge of the plays and topics for their grade levels. In addition, they discovered how to effectively schedule an English Language Arts (ELA) block, the power of helping students find their reading voices, while also learning various tips and techniques, and finding the best picture books to teach specific topics. Our teachers are excited to apply what they learned for this upcoming school year!

Congratulations to our 2022-2023 Blackford County Schools' retirees Mrs. Cissy Clock, Kindergarten teacher at BPS; Mr. Thurman Cook, an Instructional Assistant at BJSHS; Mr. Don Peden, the Head Custodian at BJSHS; and Mrs. Nancy Slentz, food service staff member at BPS. The staff members were recognized during the End of Year Breakfast held this morning at BJSHS by Superintendent Chad Yencer and Assistant Superintendent David Parker. Building principals Craig Campbell, Jim Fox and Jason Ridge shared a bit about what makes these individuals so special. (We included a retro photo of Mrs. Slentz doing what she did so well during her career at BCS... serving others with a smile!) If you see any of these people, please wish them well. They have worked hard to make a difference in the lives of the students of Blackford County Schools! Best wishes, Cissy, Thurman, Don and Nancy! Relax and enjoy the next chapter of your lives! You deserve it! ❤️ #BruinProud
