Bowling Green R-I Families and Staff,

Spring Showers are in the air, and I am confident that both students and staff are looking forward to a well-deserved break. This school year is moving along quickly, and once students return from break, we will be in our yearly standardized assessment season. While we never want these assessments to dominate everything we do, we certainly want our students to do their best, which reflects positively on them, and on our district as a whole. I hope you are making time for rest and time with family over the long holiday weekend, and all come back recharged, ready to hit the ground running through a very important section of the school year.
Our weather patterns have been quite a bit for us to work through this year. Providing that we have no more snow days, our last day of student attendance will be May 17 (which will also be a half day.) Friday, May 11 remains a half day due to graduation that evening. The last day for teachers is set for May 18th for records and check out. The board is planning an appreciation breakfast for staff that morning.
Just in case you missed my earlier message, the 2018-19 school calendar has been approved and published here for your planning purposes:

Today is the final day of all of our community, family and staff surveys. I look forward to analyzing responses and determining next steps with the creation of goals into our new strategic plan for the next five years. As we look back on the past with pride, we look forward to the future with promise.

Have a relaxing, much needed holiday break! I hope all have time to catch their breath and enjoy time away recharging in order to return with a renewed sense of purpose with all we have left to accomplish in April and May. We look forward to welcoming everyone back on Wednesday, April 4th.
