The Melba McKenzie and LeAnn Crosby Summer Scholarships...

The Melba McKenzie and LeAnn Crosby Summer Scholarships were established by the South Carolina Consortium for Gifted Education (SCCGE) as a tribute to the spirit and perseverance of former educators who devoted their career to  working with gifted and talented academic and artistic students in our state.

The scholarship is provided for one or more low SES gifted students at the middle school level (current grades 6-8).  The amount of the scholarship, not to exceed $750.00, is designed to cover or partially cover tuition to attend a summer program for academically or artistically gifted students.

Applications, disseminated through the eight regions of the Consortium, are available through teachers of gifted and school counselors.  Each region will screen its applicants and electronically submit the top two applications by March 16, 2018.

To be considered, the student must complete the attached application, an interest survey, and submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor or principal explaining why the student deserves the scholarship. Both the student and parent are required to sign the application confirming their intent to use the money for the indicated camp.  Scholarship funds are sent from the SCCGE to the camp financial office.  The application will not be considered unless a specific program and date is listed.  Responsibility for selection of a summer program will rest with the parent, student and district.

Students must submit their applications to their school counselors by March 2, 2018.  Then each district submits no more than 2 applications to be considered for the regional scholarships by March 9, 2018.

'Tis the season to help those that are less fortunate...

'Tis the season to help those that are less fortunate.  Santa will be visiting Windermere and he needs our help in providing non-perishable items to Christian Assistance Bridge (CAB).  As you and your family are out shopping for groceries, please consider bringing the following items to BMS through Wednesday, December 14th:  rice, dry beans, peanut butter, jelly, spaghetti, sauce, and/or canned meats.  You can also make a donation by making a check payable to Christian Assistance Bridge.

This is a joint effort with Blythewood Rotary and the Windermere Community.

New Bus APP to Stay in the Know...

Here at the Killian Transportation Department, we are receiving an overwhelming amount of calls from parents stating they are not getting and/or did not know about the messages the Killian Transportation Department is sending out during the morning and afternoon routes when the buses are running behind. To eliminate anymore miscommunication, parents please download the Free App through Blackboard to receive the messages.  
Thank you in advance!
