Spring Athletic Registration
BPS is happy to announce that PowerSchool Registration, powered by InfoSnap, is also being implemented for Athletic Registration. Parents can select https://secure.infosnap.com/family/gosnap.aspx?action=17931&culture=en to register. The link is also available on each middle and high school’s website.
InfoSnap is an online student registration/data validation system which allows the district to verify all student demographics, emergency and medical information, prior to the start of the athletic season. It is critical to have the most up-to-date contact and medical information for all students. The system is a secure and green process supporting our focus on safety and security. Electronic registration platforms of all kinds engage parents to ensure that information is entered properly, significantly reducing errors. The system will also allow families to electronically sign the annual permission forms.
As a reminder, parents must submit a physical to the Athletic Offices prior to participating. All physicals must be dated after April 15, 2018.)
BCS physical education teacher, Bill Johansson, was recently inducted into the Albion College Hall of Fame for track and football.
Coach Flaherty offered students with special needs a night under the lights this fall during the third Victory Night event on Oct. 15. The event offered middle and high school students with special needs an opportunity to play football and serve as cheerleaders for a game on the field, with the help and support of their Groves peers.
Kudos to Groves coach Brendan Flaherty led the Varsity Football players to win the OAA Blue Division Championship. Congratulations also to the Groves Girls Cross Country team, led by coach Jim Sherman, won the OAA Blue Division Championship.
