Bedford Superintendent Andrea Celico, Ph.D.

Hello and happy summer!

Well, we have another year under our belts!  It is amazing to think that I have completed my third year in the district.  As I went around to the schools and visited the students and staff to wish them well over the summer, it felt like déjà vu.... as if I had just done it days before!

We have had a great year in the Bedford Schools!  We have so much in which to be proud... outstanding athletic programs that produced numerous LEL championships and most recently, a BHS state champion in track! Our students have also won numerous academic awards, scholarships, and competitions through our Career and Technical Education programs, Advanced Placement courses, and some have even earned Associates' Degrees before they earned their high school diplomas! 

Our students and staff strive for excellence each and every day.  We are looking forward to many more great things!  Please encourage your friends, relatives, and neighbors to register for our 5-star preschool program. We encourage new-student enrollment for any grade as early as possible! Please watch for more information about online pre-registration and annual document updating via the new Gateway online program.

Other exciting news that we have to share pertains to our rebranding.  We will be asking the Board of Education at the end of June to approve the adoption of a new tagline, mission statement, vision statement, and core values, as well as an updated logo and a standardized version of the Bearcat mascot that will now be exclusively used throughout the district.

While we will be responsible in our messaging, signage, banners, etc. we are trying to avoid using taxpayer dollars because we pride ourselves in utilizing those funds for materials and resources that directly impact our students. To help with these costs, our team of administrators has recently created a fundraising plan to solicit businesses to donate money to sponsor some of these items. Please stay tuned as we unveil our new "Bedford Brand."  This work could not have been done without the persistence of our dedicated staff and the input and feedback from our parents and community members.  Thank you for making this a reality!

Thanks for being great partners. Enjoy your summer and some well-deserved rest and relaxation.
