ROBOTICS TEAM BRINGS HOME AWARDS AT SECOND COMPETITION
Bedford High School sent the Varsity and Jr. Varsity Robotics teams to the Lincoln District FIRST Robotics Competition.
The varsity team entered the championship matches as the captains of the third seeded alliance. The JV squad did very well individually, and was picked to join the 7th seeded alliance which meant that the JV and Varsity teams ended up matched against each other in quarterfinal bracket. The Varsity squad won the first 2 matches and advanced to semi-finals, and, unfortunately, eliminating the JV squad in that quarterfinal round.
In the semifinal round, the varisty team's alliance was not able to overtake the number 2 alliance before being eliminated.
The Varsity team was present with the tournament's Gracious Professionalism Award. The JV team was presented with the Rookie Inspiration Award as well.
Both teams will compete at Forest Hills in Grand Rapids on April 5-7.
Bedford Express proudly displays their winning banner at the Gibralter competition earlier this season.

State Unveils New Parent Dashboard
Parents now have their own online dashboard that shows the performance of all K-12 public schools in Michigan and represents a new, improved level of transparency
The Parent Dashboard for School Transparency, available at https://www.mischooldata.org/ParentDashboard, is a combined effort of MDE and the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) – based on significant parent feedback on its planning, content, and design.
The dashboard allows deeper dives into the performance of various groups of students, such as gender, race, subject, and services to students.
You can always find the direct link for Bedford High School's information on the left under "School Data" for the "MI Parent Dashboard for School Transparency."

Food Service News
Bedford Public Schools has been fortunate to have a donor pay off all students' negative food service balances through January 22, 2018. Inspired by this person's generosity, accounts have been set up at each school to receive donations from anyone else interested in ensuring that our students can enjoy a healthy meal every day at school. Stop by the school office if you wish to make a similar donation.
Please be sure to check your student's account via My MealTime (use the link on the left) on a weekly basis so we can prevent further excessive charging. (Tip: Set a low balance alert in your profile!)
Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year. Online applications can be completed through MyMealtime, and paper forms are available in each school office, or can be printed here. 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.
Bedford Public Schools has substitute teaching opportunities for those with 90+ credit hours from a four-year accredited college or university. Substitute teachers have the opportunity to choose the grade levels or subjects they prefer to teach and even how often you would like to work. If you are interested in this opportunity, our substitute teachers also referred to as “Guest Teachers” are hired through EDUStaff. Start your application today..
Para Professional, Lunchroom, Secretarial, Bus Driver and Playground Substitutes Throughout the District Also Needed
Applications are available at the Administration Building at 1623 W. Sterns Road, Temperance, MI 48182.
