Welcome

 



 

Welcome New Kindergartners!

Blaine Primary School welcomed 147 new kindergarten students to their first day of school on September 5. Over the summer months, 37 of these students participated in the "Bright K" program which utilized play-based learning opportunities focused on developmentally appropriate academic and social skills to prepare them for a successful kindergarten experience. This is the second year of full-time kindergarten in Blaine, and we continue to be excited about the increased learning opportunities for our youngest students.

The future certainly is bright for all of these new Borderites!

New High School Facility Opens

The first of a three-phase construction project at Blaine High School was ready for the arrival of students on August 30. This new facility includes a high school cafeteria, a small theatre, CTE shop, and additional classroom space. Staff and students had a front row seat watching this new building take shape last year, and we all look forward to the expanded educational opportunities that will now be available in the new facility.

Blaine High School Construction Progress

The first of a three-phase construction project at Blaine High School was ready for the arrival of students on August 30. This new facility includes a high school cafeteria, a small theatre, CTE shop, and additional classroom space. Staff and students had a front row seat watching this new building take shape last year, and we all look forward to the expanded educational opportunities that will now be available in the new facility.

Phase II, which includes a two-story classroom building connecting Phase I to the Science Building, began in early July. Crews worked diligently over the summer months on the foundation and utilities, and work is expected to go vertical in the coming weeks. Phase III, which includes renovation of the library and office areas, is scheduled to begin in June of 2018.

As we wait to determine the full scope of available funding, the BHS stadium design is being reviewed to identify alternatives that will address facility needs. The timeline for consideration and future construction is not currently defined, but would likely represent a 4th phase in the construction of the high school. From 4:00-5:30 p.m. on Monday, July 17, the Board of Directors will hold a worksession to discuss alternatives that have been identified for the stadium design. No action will take place at this worksession.

We continue to look forward to students and staff being provided with a safe, responsive, adaptive, and inspiring facility that ultimately serves to support both individual and collective teacher and learner needs and interests.
