William Yates and Lucy Franklin elementary schools were recently named Missouri Gold Star Schools for 2016. The Gold Star program recognizes schools that perform at high academic levels or that perform at high levels while serving a significant proportion of disadvantaged students. “We are proud of both William Yates and Lucy Franklin elementary schools,” Blue Springs Superintendent Jim Finley said. “Their staff, students, parents and community partners are to be commended for their academic achievements and commitment to professional development.” The last BSSD Gold Star school was Blue Springs High School in 2008. This year's winners mark 11 total Gold Stars in the district since the program was established, including Lucy Franklin Elementary in 1996.
Blue Springs High School celebrated its 2015-16 senior class on Sunday, with 575 students graduating. The Wildcats senior class included 75 students with 4.0 or higher GPAs, has earned a school-record $8.3 million in college scholarships and accounted for 13,989 hours of volunteer service to the community. Congratulations to all our grads.
