Best Wishes from the Superintendent


BSSD Staff, Students, & Parents,

It has been a very busy first semester as usual. Looking back through the last few months of StraitTalk articles, as well as my own pictures that I’ve collected from emails sent to me and collected from my travels, I am pleased to be reminded of all the great work being done across our school district. We are very busy, but also very productive. These last few months have seen the BSSD Educational Conference, Elementary/ Jr. High Wrestling and Cheerleading Tournaments, Regional Mix-six Volleyball and High School Wresting, Strategic Planning and AEC Workshop, and many other activities that are happening at the site level.

Not only is this the close of 2009, but this is the closing of the first decade of this new millennia. If you are a student, I encourage you to think about your future. Where do you want to be in another ten years? If you are a parent, I encourage you to continue to support your child by having them attend school on a regular basis ready to learn. If you are a teacher, whether a first year teacher or a twenty year veteran, I encourage you to take time over the next few weeks to think about all of the great things that have happened during your time with BSSD. What projects are worth repeating or developing, and how can you play a role?

I wish everyone a restful and safe winter break. Happy Holidays!


Jim Hickerson
