Since the most of the events associated with the BCSD Hall of Fame Raffle have been postponed until a later date when it is safer to hold them, there have been some questions regarding the fundraising raffle. Once the date for the Hall of Fame ceremonies has been determined, the date of the rescheduled raffle drawing will be announced to the community as well. This being the case, there still are some tickets available and they are still being sold. This raffle is being used to help underwrite the cost of the district's annual Hall of Fame induction events. There are only a total of 300 tickets that will be sold for this raffle so this is one raffle you will not want to pass up! Each ticket can be obtained for a $50 donation to the Beekmantown CSD Hall of Fame.
Grand Prize - $5,000
2nd Prize - $1,000
3rd Prize - $500
4th Prize (10 drawn) - $125
5th Prize ( 10 drawn) - $100

In an effort to recognize the impactful contributions of some extraordinary individuals, Beekmantown CSD has established a Hall of Fame. In this, its inaugural year, the district received many nominations and ultimately selected ten students, coaches, administrators and teachers to represent what it means to exhibit Eagle Pride. These exceptional people will be recognized tonight during halftime at the homecoming football game: Wendel Bacon, Connie Brogowski, Earl Burnell, Gary Butler, Lawrence Miller, James Mousseau, George Palmer, Peter Proctor, James Sears and Sarah Vagi. They, or a member of their family, will be able to accept a plaque on behalf of the district. So that others can always remember their contributions and those of Hall of Fame inductees in the future, a special space has been created to memorialize their efforts. The photos below show the Beekmantown High School main lobby, transformed into the Hall of Fame, complete with an electronic touchscreen kiosk and a space for copies of the current year's inductees' plaques. The theme of the space is "Live the Present, Honor the Past, and Create the Future." We encourage those who pass through this space to reflect upon the contributions of others who have built the foundation on which we stand. We also hope to inspire our staff and students to consider their own contributions and path in life to make sure that in all things that they do, they choose to, "Make it Count!" Since not everyone who attended Beekmantown CSD will be able to visit this space in person, we also offer these photos along with the electronic kiosk at www.bcsdk12.org/halloffame/ Once at this page, select Hall of Fame Inductees to see the electronic kiosk and Photo Album for larger versions of the photos shown below. We encourage you to share this post with friends and families.
Due to the high rate of spread of COVID-19 in the North Country and in order to prevent any unfortunate outbreaks, all planned events associated with the Hall of Fame have been postponed until a later date. Provided that the Alumni Weekend (Homecoming) football game is still held as scheduled, the district would still like to publicly recognize the inductees and present them with their plaques at that game. Since this event will be held outdoors, the inductees and their families are welcome to attend. The district is committed to moving forward with this worthy goal of recognizing those who have contributed so much to our school community. However, we feel it is responsible to take a step back and wait until it is safer to do so. All funds collected to date for table sponsorship and meals will be carried over to when the event is rescheduled. Raffle tickets will continue to be available until they are sold out. These still may be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

We hope everyone is off to a nice start to the school year. As you know, we are doing our best to provide in-person education safely for all students. This past week Clinton County has seen a sizable increase in positive COVID-19 cases. In response to this we mobilized our administrative team again on Friday afternoon to discuss positive cases of BCSD students and staff. The conversation was excellent and this correspondence is my best attempt to share with you some immediate actions. First it should be noted that we take the responsibility of student safety very seriously. We are personally on the front lines ensuring our school is as safe as possible for students and staff during this pandemic. It is encouraging to report our BCSD current rate of infection is very low. Specifically, less than half of one percent of our staff and students (which total around 2,500 people) have tested positive this school year. This review of actual data ensures all of us that currently school is far more safe than almost any other place in our community. Nonetheless, we promised at our Reopening Committee meetings to act if we noticed certain infection conditions. With that in mind, effective Monday we have agreed to the following: The administrative team will be stopping in classrooms more often to ensure social distancing is maximized and masks are worn appropriately and consistently. Everyone will remind students of the safety rules, which allow each of us to stay in school. Principals are looking at schedules and spaces to strongly consider adjusting room or teaching assignments within some grades or classes to reduce size, which will allow for greater social distancing. Teachers who provide snacks will be strongly encouraged to eat outside. We will be purchasing more individual desks for classrooms. We are trying to source more picnic tables for outdoor eating. Staff will sanitize high touch areas to a greater extent. Principals will meet with custodial staff to review areas needing special attention for disinfecting and sanitizing. Unvaccinated staff will be required by NYS to maintain weekly testing as a condition of employment. Vaccinated staff can test weekly now too if they wish. We are considering staggering dismissal times at the HS and MS. Physical education classes will be taught outdoors, weather permitting. We are placing a hold on all indoor assemblies. We hope our current efforts coupled with these added interventions will keep our rates low as the county rate is expected to increase for some time. Once we see rates return to the low rates of the past few months, we will reduce these safety measures thus creating a more traditional 21st Century learning environment.

Effective for the 2021-2022 school year, and pending final grant approval, Beekmantown CSD will pay for all AP or CAP courses! This outstanding and unprecedented opportunity will allow our students to receive college credit coursework free of charge! These programs, CAP/AP, at Beekmantown High School already supply outstanding students with a reduced per credit cost for 20 college credit courses, but this newly announced initiative will allow all students access to FREE college credits, right here at BCSD! This is just another example of how the district provides world class learning opportunities to our students.
