I'm not sure about you, but where did the summer go?
In exactly one month, students at Bancroft-Rosalie will begin the first day of the 2019-20 school year.
Attached is the PK/elementary supply list, and we'll see you all on Aug. 15!
The 13th annual Warrior All Star High School Basketball Classic was held earlier this month at Midland University in Fremont.
Three area girls were selected to compete in the game, including BRLD Wolverine Paige Peters and Natalia McNeill of Oakland-Craig on the dark jersey team and Ashley Peters of Logan View on the white jersey team.
BRLD girls basketball coach Rod Peters was coach of the dark team along with John O'Connor of Bennington. Coaches of the white team were Nate Pribnow of Fremont Bergan and Luke Brenn of Arlington.
It's difficult to be a high school student these days and to not only maintain good grades but to do it while also competing in athletics is even more challenging.
The Nebraska School Activities Association along with the Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians Association does a great job of recognizing these students who have been nominated by their schools, based on their individual academic excellence, leadership and significant contributions made to their NSAA activity.
The NSAA and NCPA recognized all 2,301 award winners of the Spring Academic All-State Award, including Bancroft-Rosalie senior Paige Peters for girls track and field, and junior Luke Kramer for boys track and field. Making the grade during the winter season were Peters for girls basketball, fellow classmates Kariden Briggs and Zoe Sjuts for speech, and sophomore Dylan Beutler for boys basketball.
This brings the total number of Academic All-State Award winners to more than 73,000 spanning the 13 years of the awards program.
Five soon-to-be juniors were selected to attend two different leadership seminars during their school hiatus this summer.
Bailey Hayes and Micah Henschen were picked to attend the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY) at Concordia and Emma Beutler, Audra Nolting and Brooklyn Nolting were chosen to represent B-R at the Nebraska Leadership Seminar (NLS) at Southeast Community College in Milford.
HOBY features leadership activities designed from three perspectives: personal leadership, group leadership and leadership for society. NLS aims to help students discover their personal strengths by answering key questions about who they are, how they lead, why they lead and what they will contribute as a leader.
Putting their leadership skills to work at B-R, the five will be part of a student group working to positively influence student culture. The group has been working with Superintendent Dr. Cerny to develop a program that will provide opportunities for students to participate in activities that promote ethics and integrity.
As part of this movement, senior Kelsey Larsen, a 2018 HOBY delegate, helped the girls' athletic teams develop and adopt a creed showing their commitment to high standards of character and integrity on and off the field or court.
