Kevin WeberGETTING TO KNOW
MR. KEVIN WEBER:
NEW BHS PRINCIPAL

July 3, 2019

It is with great joy and excitement that I say greetings to all the families, students, staff, and community members. I officially started as the Bedford High School Principal this week. However, I had already been in and around the community and school and started to get to know some of the staff and students. I have been welcomed by the staff and students and I am truly glad that I have made my way to Bedford.

As we get to know each other, I figured I would share a little about myself. My wife, Arien, is also an educator and teaches elementary school. We have one child, Ava, who is a rising 5th grader and we live in Ypsilanti. Professionally, I graduated from Western Michigan University with a bachelors in Special Education and earned my masters degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia University- Ann Arbor. I have spent the last fifteen years in the Wayne-Westland Community School District where I was a special education teacher, teacher consultant, football coach, assistant principal, and principal. I have worn all those hats at Wayne Memorial High School, which is similar in size to Bedford High School.

As I start what I plan to be a long term relationship as principal of Bedford, I am spending much of my time getting to learn about Bedford. My agenda for the first year is to understand Bedford; it's traditions, the community, the staff, and of course, the students. My time in education has taught me the importance of understanding before making changes. I am asking a lot of questions and spending a lot of time listening. Long-term, my goal is to continue the many great things that exist at Bedford High School and look for opportunities to make our school better. As we do that work, you can expect me to always be student-centered with a passion for making sure our students are prepared for an ever changing world.

I am spending the 4th of July holiday camping. The following week I will be traveling with family and friends to Northern Michigan. I will be in the office regularly starting July 15th. I will spend a couple days beginning to learn all the different software programs and setting up my office. After that, you will start to hear and see me as we get set for a great 2019-20 school year.

In closing, I want to say thank you to the staff and students that have been so welcoming. I wanted to give a special thanks to the assistant principals who have been working to get me up to speed, and to Superintendent Dr. Shultz for assisting me with the transition to Bedford. I was excited to join Bedford, and I can already tell from the positive energy and hospitality, that this is a great community to serve.

Respectfully,
Kevin Weber
Principal, Bedford High School

Changes to AP Classes for the 2019-2020 School Year

In past years, students have had the ability to register for AP Exams in March. AP has implemented a new policy for the 2019/2020 school year that moves the AP Exam ordering deadline to fall. The AP Coordinator will be visiting AP classes within the first few weeks of the school year to go over the changes and the registering process for AP Exams.

Each exam will cost $94. Students must deposit $40 of the $94 by the fall deadline, November 1st. The remaining balance will not be due until April. Students will be able to sign up and/or cancel the test after the fall deadline but there will be a fee.

Here is a link for a handout regarding the new AP policy for students and parents: AP POLICY INFORMATION LINK 2019-2020

FOOD SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Free & Reduced Meal Applications for 2019-20 School Year

Applications for free/reduced meals for 2019-2020 are available online, on the Food Service webpage, in all the school offices, or can be printed here.

This form must be filled our annually as benefits will expire on October 11, 2019 if a new application is not submitted. Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year.

Participation is confidential and anonymous to use. All student transactions at the cafeteria cash register appear identical regardless of whether students are paying full price, receiving reduced prices, or free meals, to protect the confidentiality of program participation. It's a win-win situation: the students benefit from the healthy food at breakfast and lunch with families keeping more of their hard earned money, and schools can benefit from federal funding and programs that become available based on family participation in the school meal program.

Food Service Donations Accepted

In the past, Bedford Public Schools has been fortunate to have received donations to help pay off students' negative food service balances. Accounts have been set up at each school to receive donations from anyone else interested in ensuring that all of our students can enjoy a healthy meal every day at school. Stop by the school office if you wish to make a similar donation.
