Upcoming Events
University of Pittsburgh STEAM Super Science Saturday
Super Science Saturday!
Scientists, Engineers, and Mathematicians For Service (SEMFS) from the University of Pittsburgh is inviting you to attend our annual Super Science Saturday! This is a 4 hour long event on November 18th where we divide up participants by age level and present age-appropriate science, math, and engineering topics and give the kids some creativity and freedom to learn about these topics hands on. Last year the kids had fun modeling the solar system, making bouncy balls, and building roller coasters (just to name a few activities!). This year we have all new events planned, so don't worry about getting bored!

Honoring our Veterans

   On Wednesday, November 8th, BIS was privileged to host over 40 veterans and guests for our first Veteran’s Breakfast.  Veterans were welcomed with a treat bag and flag pin.  Then, the wonderful cafeteria staff served a delicious breakfast buffet while the BHS Chamber Players entertained the room.  Next, the veterans were treated to a performance of the third grade patriotic concert. It was our great honor to recognize these brave men and women.  

Thank You Veterans!

BIS ROCKS!
#BISCHOOSESKINDNESS
Today was a wonderful celebration at BIS! It was the kick-off for Olweus program. Olweus is an anti-bullying curriculum designed to make schools safer and improve peer relations. In addition to Olweus, our students will also be focusing on kindness this year. Classes will be looking for opportunities to show kindness - sometimes in a random way. To see details of our day click HERE!

SNACK POLICY for all schools strictly enforced. PLEASE READ!
September 8, 2017

Dear Blackhawk School District Families,

In an effort to protect our students, many of whom have food allergies, we are asking that all snacks brought in for distribution to the students be pre-packaged store bought items. We are also asking that you provide the original packaging, including ingredient list to your classroom teachers. This way, the teachers can address any allergies that are in the classroom and see to it that students with allergies do not receive items that may cause an allergic reaction.

This includes any snacks that are served during the classroom parties as well. All snacks, both those served during the party or sent home must be pre-packaged store bought items.

Also, we ask that no preparation of food items be done as part of the classroom parties. Again, this is an effort to keep all students safe and protected from any possibly food contamination issues or allergic reactions.

Again, this is an effort to keep our children safe. Any questions may be directed to me at (724)846-6600 x1016 or fleischmanc@bsd.k12.pa.us

Sincerely,
Cherie Fleischman
Food Service Director
