Brandon Valley School District #49-2



Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!

The 2017-2018 school year is off an running. Overall, we have had an outstanding start to the year! In addition to our current system, we have a number of new and exciting things happening within the district this fall. The Middle School is undergoing a major renovation project. As originally scheduled, the entrance and classroom spaces are ready for the start of the school year and the new office space and restrooms will be completed by late October. An exciting component of the Middle School Project is the growth of our STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Math) program into the 7th and 8th grades.

Along with additional programming, we are launching an initiative. �The Lynx Way� is a district-wide approach to promoting positive student character and instilling the fundamental character traits we want in all students.

�The Lynx Way�

We Are:

Respectful � Kind � Responsible � Safe - Active Learners 

I would encourage parents, guardians, and patrons to utilize the common language when working with our students.

Together, we can promote student success and provide an excellent educational experience for our children.

Go Lynx!

Sincerely in Education,

Jarod Larson, Superintendent
