A FOND FAREWELL TO RETIRING STAFF MEMBERS

Every year we celebrate the transitions. The kindergarteners finish their first year of school and are excited to move to a first grade classroom down the hall in September. The 5th graders make a big change with the jump to the junior high school. The eighth graders will just be moving next door to begin their high school adventure. Our graduates have so many options to choose from as they begin their journey into adulthood.

But we also have staff members joining the ranks of the retired to celebrate! Over the past year, these are the staff members who have already retired or will soon be making that change with the end of the school year:

Douglas Road Elementary
CAROLE DAVIES – 27½ Years
JEANNE KEARNEY – 27 Years

Jackman Road Elementary
NANCY BRANCHEAU – 30 Years

Monroe Road Elementary
ANN GRIFFIN – 25 Years

Bedford Junior High School
LISA BROWN – 25 Years
BRENT DUKATE – 28 Years
JAN TULLY – 25 Years

Bedford Senior High School
CHRISTY AVALOS – 23 Years
CARLOS GARCIA – 2 Years
WALLACE LABURN – 17 Years
JAN SCOTT – 18 Years

Food Service Department
CYNTHIA PALICKI – 22 Years

Transportation Department
MARIANNE ALEXANDER – 31½ Years
RONALD HAMEN – 5 Years

These 14 people have accumulated a total of 306 years of combined service to the children of our community. Think about how many kids they may have interacted with during all of those years! Maybe it is a smaller number with a specialized service that creates strong bonds in that time. Maybe they had that continued presence of someone that sees the students year after year in their roles. Maybe it was one class all day, or a new set of faces coming in each hour. Regardless of the role, we are grateful for all the things, big and little, that these people did each day to make a positive impression in the lives of so many of our students.

Thank you so much for being a part of our lives, too. You will be missed. We wish you all the best in whatever direction your future adventures take you!

The Board of Education recognized the retirees prior to the June 2nd Board meeting. You can use this YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVyPDkKa_Zs&t=391s to watch the presentations.

ABOUT BEDFORD PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Bedford Public School District is proud to offer a high quality education to the residents of Bedford Township, Michigan!

OUR MISSION: EDUCATING FOR LIFE!

OUR VISION FOR STUDENT SUCCESS: ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE, WORLD CLASS ENVIRONMENT, DIVERSE OPPORTUNITIES, COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT 

Bedford Public Schools continues a tradition of educational excellence that starts with early childhood education in our award winning Great Start Readiness Preschool (GSRP) program. Our three elementary schools: Douglas Road Elementary, Jackman Road Elementary, and Monroe Road Elementary, provide an excellent foundation for students to grow from Young Fives to Grade 5. Bedford Junior High School offers a softer transition from the elementary atmosphere with a school-within-a-school for 6th graders before moving to more independent learning and students switching classes for grades 7 and 8 in preparation for high school. The many academic options available at Bedford High School, along with our Bedford Virtual Academy, means every student can thrive with classes based on their interests or potential choice of college studies or career path. Our Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses teaches real world, hands-on skills in 13 different career pathways. A wide variety of courses, a strong visual and performing arts program, competitive athletics, and extracurricular opportunities all contribute to a well-rounded education for our graduates. Many graduates leave with college credits and/or industry recognized certifications. Lifelong learning continues beyond high school and graduation with our Adult Education programs and other enrichment options in our outstanding Community Education program. 

Bedford Public Schools has an enrollment of over 4,000 students that routinely exceed state averages in assessments such as the M-STEP, MME and SAT thanks to the efforts of our dedicated staff, the hard work of our students, and the support of parents and our community. We are proud to be the Kicking Mules!
