On Monday, the National Honor Society will begin their annual food drive. The drive will take place from December 9-17. The need in our community is IMMENSE this year, so we want to make sure that we do as much as we can to help give a hand up to those who are struggling. We will be providing breakfast for the top three classrooms with the best average of points per student. In addition, this year we will be awarding Amazon gift cards to the top three students based on individual point values: $50 for the first place student, $25 for the second place student, and $10 for the third place student. We are hoping this extra incentive will help bring in the most food we have ever collected.

Digital Empowerment Project:
Empowering Teens. Educating Parents.
January 28, 2020 at 7 pm

The Bedford Junior High School PTO is hosting a Digital Empowerment Project parent meeting in the Bedford High School Auditorium on January 28, 2020 at 7:00 pm. This is a parent only event, and open to all Bedford families.

Presenter: Captain Scott Frank

"After an amazing 36-year career in law enforcement, I retired to follow my passion to EMPOWER
TEENS to make safe and healthy choices online and to EDUCATE PARENTS so they can support
and guide their teens. As a former Internet Crimes Against Children Investigator my role was to
traverse the internet posing as a child. The world I found myself in for over ten years was almost
beyond descriptive words. I knew that my investigations were important, and they were making a
difference - one predator at a time."

Some of the topics to be covered:

Understanding a Teen’s Digital World.
Real Teens. Real Stories.

Digital Think-Abouts:
-- The Power of One.
-- Protecting your Privacy.
-- App Permissions / Location Services.
-- Online Relationships.
-- Sexting/Pornography.
-- Cyber Respect.
-- Trust an Adult. Tell an Adult.

This event will not be livestreamed. You must attend in person.

Dear BPS Parent/Guardian,

As we approach the holiday season, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each one of you for the wonderful start to the school year. We truly do have a lot to be thankful for this year as a district. Our community, with the support and efforts by our staff and parents, passed a much-needed bond just one year ago this month. District leadership has been working closely with our bond partners to finalize the plans for phase 1 of the bond projects that will begin in June 2020. Phase 1 includes the completion of all projects slated for Jackman Road Elementary and Bedford Senior High School, as well as the site-work (parking lots and drop-off/pick-up loop) for Bedford Junior High School. The remaining buildings will be completed as part of Phase 2 in the summer of 2021. While this is exciting, my favorite news to share is that our Bedford students continue to perform exceptionally well across the state in an array of academic, athletic, and performing arts competitions. Finally, the district has for the first time in over a decade ended a school year with a positive fund balance above the State of Michigan’s minimum threshold of five percent (2019 audited general fund balance is 7.2%). All of these wonderful accomplishments are the product of hard work and dedication by BPS staff and our families.

It appears that since the state of Michigan has once again decided to skip over fall this year as we have already been forced to deal with severe weather in the area. As a reminder, please make sure to contact the building secretary for your child’s school if you have made any changes to your personal contact information (phone, email, or home address) to ensure that you will receive the district’s Honeywell Emergency Alerts. This is the best way to keep up to date on any delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. The district continues to take the safety of our students and staff members very seriously and will always use the best information possible when making any changes due to existing or future weather. The process for making decisions based on the weather is contingent upon many factors and is rarely ever going to make sense to everyone. I will simply remind everyone that not all families have 4x4 vehicles, live on easily passable roads, or are completely comfortable driving/walking in severe conditions. Keeping these factors in mind, we do the best that we can with the always-changing weather forecasts and conditions in the area. Bedford Public Schools utilizes a variety of different options for dealing with extreme weather: 1) cancellation, 2) two-hour delay, 3) two-hour delay that converts to a cancellation if conditions fail to improve, and 4) early release from school if conditions become dangerous. Each of the available options can be difficult for families due to the change in normal scheduling and we will always try our best to ensure that decisions are made allowing the most time for parents to make arrangements as possible. As superintendent, I will always err on the side of caution as the most important part of my position is to keep our students, staff, and families safe.

Finally, I hope that everyone has an incredibly safe and happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for our strong community of students and families, dedicated staff, and for the support of our community as we continuously strive to be the best district in the state. We have so many incredible accomplishments taking place across the district and I hope that everyone gets involved as we continue to shape our community’s future!

Dr. Carl Shultz,
Superintendent of Schools
Bedford Public Schools

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

group photo of ladies' robotics team

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.

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.
