2019 MONROE COUNTY
SCHOOL SAFETY SUMMIT
Lessons from Columbine
Wednesday, October 23
Meyer Theater at Monroe County Community College
1555 S. Raisinville Road, Monroe
Dave Cullen is the author of "Columbine," an examination of the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999. The book gained attention for addressing many of the so-called Columbine “myths” that were widely accepted.
The author spent 10 years researching and writing the book, which spent 8 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list in the spring of 2009.
These presentations are designed to encourage dialogue among varied groups of concerned citizens. To put it bluntly, there really isn’t anyone who is not impacted by the potential for a massive safety threat in today’s world. Time and time again, we have seen violence perpetrated in school settings.
Choose whichever session suits your schedule that day, but PLEASE make the decision to attend this event!
Join us for one of these sessions:
8:00 - 10:00 a.m.
DESIGNED FOR REGIONAL & BUSINESS LEADERS, SCHOOL PERSONNEL, YOUTH GROUP LEADERS, AND COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES
6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
DESIGNED FOR PARENTS, COMMUNITY MEMBERS, STUDENTS, FAMILIES, YOUTH GROUP LEADERS, AND FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS
We thank our local sponsors: La-Z-Boy, Monroe County Substance Abuse Coalition, Child Advocacy Network of Monroe County, DTE Foundation, Monroe Bank & Trust, United Way of Monroe/Lenawee Counties, The Mall of Monroe, and the Hon. Frank Arnold.

Writing lab is open and operating in room C-6 for 4th hour and room A-24 for 5th hour. The concept is similar to Math Lab in that it is homeroom help requiring a referral/pass from a teacher for attendance. However, Writing Lab is available for any student in any content area who needs help with a reading or writing issue. We would ask students bring rubrics for projects to help us guide them. We would also be happy to review student writing for college and job applications.

Bedford High School All-Girl Robotics Team Reaches Finals in All-Girl Competition
Bedford High School's Bedford Express FRC Robotics Team sent a squad of ladies to the Goonettes Invitational, an all-girl FIRST Robotics Competition held in Woodhaven on Saturday, September 14th. Captains Layni R.and Alexis F. successfully drove through the qualifications matches with a 7-0-1 record, earning a second place ranking. Freshman Savannah F., Jessica S. and Sarah B. did an incredible job maintaining the robot in our pit in addition to filling roles of human player and technician. The team advanced through the quarter-finals and semi-finals before falling to the top ranked alliance in the finals. This is the first time Bedford Express has attended an all-girls event since 2015 and we are hopeful that a strong class with seven freshman girls will allow us to continue to compete in the future.
Bedford Express is preparing now for fall/winter classes and the start of build season in January. Students interested in joining the co-ed 2020 team (and mentors interested in helping) can register on the Bedford Express website.
More information about the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) can be found on the FIRST FRC website.

FOOD SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
Free & Reduced Meal Applications for 2019-20 School Year
Applications for free/reduced meals for 2019-2020 are available online, on the Food Service webpage, in all the school offices, or can be printed here.
This form must be filled our annually as benefits will expire on October 11, 2019 if a new application is not submitted. Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year.
Participation is confidential and anonymous to use. All student transactions at the cafeteria cash register appear identical regardless of whether students are paying full price, receiving reduced prices, or free meals, to protect the confidentiality of program participation. It's a win-win situation: the students benefit from the healthy food at breakfast and lunch with families keeping more of their hard earned money, and schools can benefit from federal funding and programs that become available based on family participation in the school meal program.
Food Service Donations Accepted
In the past, Bedford Public Schools has been fortunate to have received donations to help pay off students' negative food service balances. Accounts have been set up at each school to receive donations from anyone else interested in ensuring that all of our students can enjoy a healthy meal every day at school. Stop by the school office if you wish to make a similar donation.
