NEWS TO KNOW


COMMUNITY FORUMS SCHEDULED FOR A PROPOSED NOVEMBER BOND

Dr. Carl Shultz, Superintendent of Bedford Public Schools, is excited to announce that, as a district, we have the opportunity this November to ask our community for support in updating our aging facilities and in ensuring that our students and staff have the safest possible learning environment. The district has been working tirelessly to construct a list of immediate facility needs that we need to upgrade. In addition, through surveys, building evaluations, and research, we have identified a number of safety concerns that we also would like to address.

The next step in the process is to engage our community in an open dialogue to determine if we have missed anything and to share where we are currently. To accomplish this step, the district will be holding two forums to outline our plan and to gather additional information from stakeholders. Please feel free to attend one of the two forums that will be located inside the Bedford High School Auditorium on the following dates:

Forum 1:
Tuesday, May 29th
6:00-8:00 pm
Bedford High School Auditorium

Forum 2:
Thursday, May 31st
3:00-5:00 pm
Bedford High School Auditorium

The Board of Education will also be discussing the proposal as an agenda item at their Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting on Thursday, May 31st at 7 pm in the BHS Media Center. All board meetings, including COW meetings, are open to the public to attend.

Fourth Grade Scientists

JRE fourth grade students have been participating in NASA Mission Globe. They have been measuring surface temperatures with infrared thermometers and making cloud observations. JRE students were third in the world for recording accurate temperatures that matched up with satellites. Dr. Czajkowski from the University of Toledo visited today and spoke to our students about why their research is important. Thank you JRE PTO for the infrared thermometers!

Exploratory News!

Thank you to JRE's generous PTO for purchasing 30 yoga mats for our Exploratory classes! If your child has their own mat or towel they are welcome to continue using it or they can bring it home and use a mat here at school. We will be using a non-toxic disinfectant to sanitize the mats after each use. We are so excited to use the new mats!

State Unveils New Parent Dashboard

Michigan Parent Dashboard for School Transparency; Your Window to Important School Information and Facts logo

Parents now have their own online dashboard that shows the performance of all K-12 public schools in Michigan and represents a new, improved level of transparency

The Parent Dashboard for School Transparency, available at https://www.mischooldata.org/ParentDashboard, is a combined effort of MDE and the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) – based on significant parent feedback on its planning, content, and design.

The dashboard allows deeper dives into the performance of various groups of students, such as gender, race, subject, and services to students.

You can always find the direct link for Jackman Road Elementary School's information on the left under "School Data" for the "MI Parent Dashboard for School Transparency."

JRE School Garden Project

JRE was recently awarded a $3,700.00 grant from Lowes to begin our school garden this spring. The first phase of the school garden will consist of three raised garden beds. Each raised garden will have a different theme. These themes will be a pizza garden, a salsa garden, and salad garden. The second phase of the garden will include an area for butterflies, a sensory garden, birdhouses, bird feeders, bird baths and benches. We look forward to using this project to enhance the curriculum at JRE. We will get to a point where volunteers are needed and are hoping to work with our wonderful families regarding this matter. A special thank you goes out to Mrs. Schalmo for earning the grant for JRE.
