Well, the Governor did what most of us thought he would do. Schools buildings will be closed for the rest of the year. BCS will continue to offer online learning opportunities. Information about grade recovery is coming. Look for communication about that this coming Monday, April 20th.
I had feared closure of buildings fo the year might happen. So, this creates a few problems.
First, we have to figure out how to distribute yearbooks. That should be very doable. But every year for the past five years, I have always had the freshmen sign my yearbook. I have an idea about that. Stay tuned.
But here’s the bigger problem. Each freshman class for the previous five years has taken a class photo. We frame it and hang it in the cafeteria under the class banner, hang it in the school lobby, and put one in the trophy case with the class memorabilia. Our 2023 class picture was scheduled for April 6th. Needless to say it didn’t happen, and it’s not going to happen.
But, I am not willing to allow this year to go by without a class picture.
So, I have spent a little time the past few weeks creating one for the class of 2023. I took each student’s yearbook photo, reduced it to the same standard size, and pieced together a collage of the Class of 2023. They are in random order. We’ll frame it and hang it along side the others.
Yes, it’s different, but the Class of 2023 will always have a special place in my heart. I do need a caption for this class, so I am looking for suggestions.
