BCES LOVES their new Quilt Square! Please look over as you travel Hwy 19E and see the beautiful quilt square located on the east side of the building. This project began five years ago as Ms. Duncan was doing a math lesson on quilt squares with her 3rd grade class. She invited Ms. Barbara Webster, renown local artist and quilt square project coordinator, to visit and educate her students on the real life math connections and problem solving skills implemented in this cultural art form. From there, a committee was formed and lead by Ms. Hunter and Ms. Peterson. The result is this pattern called "Generations" designed in school colors to reflect the rich history of the close nit Bald Creek Community and School where multiple generations of family have attended the since 1860. Principal Sherry Robinson states, "This is a beautiful representation of wonderful generations of people. It's our pleasure to provide this for our community and visitors passing by to view on a daily basis."

On Friday Feb. 19th, Bald Creek Students celebrated being named a NC A+ School. Eight students from grades 3-5 wrote essays and demonstrated public speaking skills as they spoke at a school wide assembly on "What It Means to Attend an A+ School and What It Takes to Be an A+ Student". 5th grade student Skylar Wheeler spoke, “To be an A+ student, it takes hard work, dedication and studying. You can do anything as long as you believe in it". 2014-15 Teacher of the Year Laura Davis, 2015-16 Teacher of the Year Lori McCourry, Teacher Assistant of the Year Joyce Hensley and Teacher Jessica Duncan also spoke to the students. Teacher Lori McCourry stated, "Working at an A+ School means faculty and students going the extra mile, working a little harder, digging deeper, doing things you don't want to do and not taking the easy way out. The only place Success comes before Work is in the dictionary". Four 5th students, Riley Penland, Aidan Silvers, Chance McIntosh and Jesse Shelton wrote positive messages which were attached to balloons and released at the end of the program. Chance McIntosh wrote, "Dream beautiful dreams and work hard to make them come true." Principal Sherry Robinson says, "Words can't describe how proud I am of everyone. Being an A+ School is a huge accomplishment. We put good resources in the hands of excellent educators and combine that with parents who support the education of their children. It really is a team effort of open minded, positive people working towards a common vision."
