SENIOR STUFF: Their last day was Tuesday, but with Honors Night starting in 30 minutes (!) and graduation 24 hours later, our seniors spent the first day of the rest of their lives...in school. You can't have graduation without graduation practice, so the gang pulled together today to do just that. Stream both events at bit.ly/4256sc3, starting at 6:55 p.m. tonight and tomorrow. #GoGrads #GoBeavers

TAKING THE LEAD: They say 90 percent of success in life is showing up. But Beaverton seniors Gabe Drudge and Eva Reader and juniors David Abreu and Jaydin Bair do quite a bit more than that. The quartet just completed the 2024 Gladwin County Youth Leadership program, in which students learn about the inner workings of their community through interacting with local leaders. Congrats to our four affirmed leaders and #GoBeavers.

UNBREAKABLE: Our peer-to-peer LINKS program - which matches student mentors in grades 6 through 12 with younger students who can use a little extra attention - closed out the school year today with a smile-filled field day. Eighty students enjoyed ice cream, beach balls, bubbles, hula hoops, frisbees and the crowd-pleasing parachute, among other activities. It was an excellent finale to a program whose astonishing two-year climb in participation and friendships has inspired neighboring districts to implement similar programs, and it should pay significant dividends in student growth, happiness and performance for years to come. #Proud

VOICES HEARD: It was Election Day at BJSHS, and we did it up right. After weeks of preparation, candidate speeches and campaigning, next year's 7-12 graders assembled in the media center and recorded their choices for student government. The Gladwin County Clerk's office and several township election officials were on hand with official election equipment to administer the proceedings. Students got a look at how it all works in real life, from long lines to verifying their identity to spoiled ballots to uncontested races. It was an excellent civics lesson and a great reminder of our sacred responsibility to participate in this grand experiment we call democracy.

Mrs.Woodruff's STEM classes enjoyed their Survival Shelter challenge. All structures were tested under heavy winds, rain, and fallen trees. The kids especially liked Mrs. Woodruff's surprise leaf blower (super storm) winds!

C’EST BON: French students presented their final unit projects at BJSHS today, and the whole school was invited to join in. The students shared their work "gallery walk style" in the media center, using French for their presentations in conjunction with pantomiming. Staff, students and friends of the program were invited to have a look. #UneVueMagnifique #GoBeavers
