    Graduation Pathways Recommendation

    There has been a committee working at the state level (consisting mainly of folks who are not public school educators) to create a graduation pathway recommendation for the State of Indiana. This recommendation will go to the Indiana Department of Education for approval.  I have attached a draft of their recommendations.  Please note that as of 2022, students must satisfy all three requirements.  Within each requirement there are choices for how to achieve that requirement.  In the second page of the document there are further details including the impact on students graduating prior to 2022.

    You may submit public comment at gradpathways_comment@sboe.in.gov until the December 1, 2017 Indiana State Board of Education meeting.  The final decision on the graduation pathways is expected to be made at the December 1 State Board of Education meeting.

    Guy Fisher, from Goodwill, reports the following about the drive to help with Hurricane Relief Efforts:  “I’m happy to report that the drive resulted in $1,000 being sent to Hurricane relief in Southeast Texas.  Goodwill Industries of Michiana (your Goodwill region) sent a total (to date) of $5,000 to our sister Goodwills in that region. Those Goodwill operations are in the heart of the impact area and are working directly with families in need.”  Thank you to all who donated, and to Kathy Lis for organizing and making this possible!  Great job!

    Did you hear about the virtual field trip the 5th graders at BGE took last week?  Paris, Outer Space, the Smithsonian (just to name a few)–awesome job and great opportunities for our students!

    On Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017, the BGMS Library received a very large donation of 188 books plus magazines from the Grant family.   This was a huge help to the library as there were many books here that are frequently requested.  BGMS would like to remind parents that we are ALWAYS accepting appropriate book donations at all of our libraries!  Awesome!
