In the June School Board meeting Jeremy Young, BESD Assessment Director, shared Acadience Reading scores for the School District over the past three years. The number and percentage of students in the district that are reading at or above the end of year benchmark has not only steadily increased over the past three years, but is also well above the state percentages. BESD is excited about this growth as it represents significant progress toward our mission of high levels of learning for all students. It is evidence of the dedicated work of our wonderful teachers and students and we are confident that this trend of improvement will only continue for years to come.

Child Nutrition held a corn husking week in September. Corn was ordered from Shaffer Farms, a local farm in the Garland area. Eight schools participated including 7 elementary schools and Bear River Middle School. Students at each school husked the corn, the kitchen staff cooked the corn, and it was enjoyed by all! Students had a great time learning the process of husking and eating the corn on the cob.
