We would like to thank the following group of people for their immediate and caring response to the 7th grade student who sustained a neck injury during football practice this morning: Football coaching staff, nurses, athletic trainer, Security Director, Command Center Director, SRO's, local EMT's, flight crew, and Brookland Police Department. The student was able to move all extremities and is being flown to Le Bonheur in Memphis as a precaution to be examined thoroughly for possible nerve damage. We ask that you please keep this student and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
BPS can now be found on TikTok at BPSBearcats (@bpsbearcats). Come find and follow us to see all of the latest videos.
This week's challenge is to have a positive post about a BPS employee, bragging on them and/or thanking them for the job that they do. This can be about a current or former teacher, an office worker, aid, interventionist, maintenance person, bus driver, or whoever you feel is deserving. Use the #bearcatproud to mark it. Then at Friday night's football game, the first five people who can show Mr. McCorkle their post will get a $5 Sonic gift card donated by the Sonic Drive-In in Brookland. We look forward to seeing everyone's posts. Have a great week and stay #bearcatproud.
Tomorrow is "Bearcat Proud" day. We are asking everyone to post a short video on social tomorrow telling how you are connected to Brookland Schools and that you are "Bearcat Proud". Then tag it with #bearcatproud. Post one with your family, friends, co-workers, and/or team. We look forward to seeing some creative videos and how proud our students, staff, and community are of their school!
Thank you to everyone who work hard to keep our students safe. https://www.kait8.com/2022/08/15/school-district-launches-command-center-enhance-safety/
Here is a map that previews the car line routes for the PreK and Elementary. Due to construction some things have changed. We will post a video next week to give you a better look at the routes.
