Welcome back to another school year! The weather seems to be cooperating for now; although as I walked through our schools, I couldn't help but notice some warm rooms. But before we know it, we will be battling the snow-covered roads, inclement weather and startling cold temperatures!
I am excited to return to BCSD as I enter my fifth year as Superintendent. We certainly have had some trying times, but the families, students, and staff make every day enjoyable. As you know, we made many changes to the dress code, particularly to the high school. In addition, we are finally proud to announce our new Bedford Schools app that is now available for download! Please make it a point to download it to your phone. There are many great features on it! I also opened the year with a new Twitter account, so please consider following me as I post all the great events and news that are happening in the district. You can find me at @BCSDSupt.
We are looking forward to a great year! We have many new faces to welcome to the Bedford City Schools, including our new high school principal, Mr. Christopher Thompson, High School Dean John Myers, and head football coach Charles Saulters. In addition to our new faces, we made some internal changes as well, including: Mrs. Kim Sterlekar as the Heskett Principal, along with Ms. Crystal Brooks as Dean of Students. Mrs. Ginny Golden will take the helm as the interim principal at Columbus, due to the transfer of Mrs. Karla Robinson who will return home to the high school as the Associate Principal of Academic Affairs. Mrs. Erin Black has taken the head seat at Glendale due to Mrs. Beach's retirement and she will be assisted by Mr. Kevin Gibaldi.
Please make it a point to visit our schools to see first-hand all the great wonders that are happening in the district. I look forward to seeing you soon.
