Dear BSS Community,

What a great Grandparents/Special friends Day and Spring Sing. Thank you to all great-grandparents, grandparents, special friends who were able to join us on Monday. The students were so happy to tour their family/friends around the school.
Kudos to Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Spradlin for a wonderful Spring Sing. The students, instrumentalists, and soloists were amazing! In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, music is the universal language of mankind.
