The new DYE music teacher Mrs. Caton showcased the Whacky Whacky West theme with student skits, choreographed dance routines and six songs all of western style. Parents could donate to the PTA by signing up for a raffle to win a quilt of student choir participant handprints.

For three consecutive years BSSD has supported health and wellness in an annual “Walk to School Day.” Parents, guardians and students were encouraged to participate in the walk following safe guidelines set by the district and also each school. Safe crossing areas were marked and staff and volunteers worked together to ensure those who choose to walk to school were kept safe.
