Superintendent's Message

January 10, 2023

Dear BU Community,

What an incredible evening last night!

It was an evening of joy, celebration and nostalgia. Generations of Rockets came together to cut the ribbon and tour our new building. While we are sad to let the old building go, I think we all saw the outstanding benefits this new facility will bring to future Rockets!

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate, to everyone who made this moment possible and to everyone in our community for your patience and support as we worked together to make this new facility a reality. We still have several pieces of our campus to come – a marching band practice field; a new baseball field; a field house; a finished bus barn; and of course, landscaping, signage and other smaller details.

As we mentioned last night, we will be holding an auction for items from the old school. We also want to be sure everyone can get a brick from the old building who wants one! Details are still being finalized, so please stay tuned for information about both of these future events.

Last night, I truly felt the meaning of Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow, Rockets Forever. What an incredible moment in the history of our school district. Thank you for being such an important part of it.

Go Rockets!

Jon Parker
