Beaverton Schools, along with other school districts in Clare and Gladwin Counties, are currently operating without internet service and with intermittent phone service due to a technical failure. Our Information Technology partners at Clare-Gladwin RESD are working to resolve the problem, but at this time, it is unknown when services will be restored. For this reason, the PSAT ninth-grade testing scheduled for tomorrow has been rescheduled for Monday, April 22. Parents should be advised that district telephones, along with internet and email, may still be affected tomorrow and plan accordingly. Thank you for your patience; we hope to be back to full strength tomorrow.

ANOTHER CHANCE: Hey there, parents of kids ages three through five: If you missed your opportunity to stop by Beaverton Elementary for New Learners Info Night last month, we’re running it back. Come to BES Thursday night from 5 to 6 p.m. and hear all about Preschool, Young Fives and Kindergarten, meet our teachers, take a tour and even enroll if you wish. (You can also do that at any time at beavertonschools.net/enroll.) Join us - you’ll be glad you did. #ProudToBeABeaver

BUILD CHAMPS: The mission: Take some tools, a stack of lumber and three-and-a-half hours and build a five-foot-by-five-foot deer blind. And build it better than everybody else. That's what four young men from Beaverton did today, capturing first place in the annual MCTA Deer Blind Competition at their CTE Construction Trades lab in Clare. Juniors Lincoln Stoike, Talan Jensen and Landin Woods and senior Reese Longstreth out-sawed, out-drilled and out-assembled students from Lapeer, Muskegon and beyond to win the competition, displaying exemplary skill and teamwork in the process. In winning, they also brought home an excellent cache of construction tools for their efforts. Well done, gents. Congrats and #GoBeavers.

DID YOUR PRINCIPAL EVER DO THIS? If you ever wondered how far a principal would go to get kids fired up about state testing, we may have found the answer this afternoon. Not only did BES leader Shawna Hartwell dress up as Wonder Woman for the superhero-themed assembly, but the bleachers shook with fury as select representatives from each class were chosen to...SLIME THE PRINCIPAL! It was an uproariously good time and a great way to bring winning energy to next week's testing. Here's hoping for a repeat of last year, when Beaverton students in grades 3 through 6 outperformed their counterparts in neighboring districts by an average of more than 10 percent. Let's do this, Beavers. #Slimed

RIGHTY, TIGHTY: Sixth-grade STEM students have spent the whole week tearing stuff apart and putting it back together, and it's been just as fun as it sounds. The reverse-engineering curriculum is designed to help students think about how things work and spark an interest in related careers. #BreakItDownAndBuildIt Up #GoBeavers

SHHH! DON'T TELL THEM THEY'RE LEARNING! - Nothing drives home a science lesson like a good visual aid, and Monday's solar eclipse is going to be pretty hard to beat in that department. Kids from the fourth grade up were spread throughout campus, taking in the awe-inspiring splendor of space. #ThanksMotherNature #GoBeavers

LOOK SMART: Monday’s total solar eclipse promises a rare and special opportunity for learning, and we want to make sure everyone does it safely. Thanks to the generosity of BHS alum Jim Looker, we’ll be able to distribute proper eyewear to all BJSHS students, and we're supplying glasses to kids in grades 4-6 as well. Please communicate to your kids the importance of not looking directly at the sun during Monday’s event without protection. This fact sheet explains the science and the safety behind the eclipse: bit.ly/49qdxrx. These videos are helpful as well: bit.ly/49o6wHp and bit.ly/3xoAYE6. Stay safe and #GoBeavers.

INSTANT HISTORY: The Beaverton girls soccer team took the field tonight for the first time in school history and fought through the frigid rain and wind at Gladwin to leave their fans more than satisfied. The Gs might've won the game, but Beaverton Athletics won the night. The home opener is Wednesday; c'mon out and give this group a look. Well done, ladies. #GoBeavers #Represent
