  • Dear Big Sky Students & Families-

    I’d like to start with a huge shout out to our Girls and Boys Soccer teams, Cross Country runners, Volleyball and Football players, Cheer team and our Golf team for kicking off the 2020 Fall athletics season.  What perseverance and grit you are all showing in your sport! Many have asked about other activities such as Speech & Debate, National Honor Society, HOSA among many others and now that we have our feet underneath us our advisors will begin to plan and communicate how these groups will work this year.  

    A note from our Booster Club-New Big Sky Eagles gear will be available to buy this week! The Booster Club will have merchandise available this week on Thursday and Friday afternoons.  In partnership with Bob Ward's Sports & Outdoors, they will have an area out front of the Bob Ward's store across from Southgate Mall from 3:30pm to 6:30pm on both Thursday and Friday.  Hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other fun accessories, including brand new clothing and hats from Montana's very own Uptop will be available.  So if you need some new Eagles gear, this is the week!

    Below are a few reminders for this week:

    • Remember to bring your device to and from school even during your in person days.  If you still need a device please contact me directly. 
    • Monday 9/14 is the last virtual attendance check in for this 1st block, remember all students A-Z must check in virtually by 3:30pm Monday 9/14. 
    • Tuesday/Wednesday A-K periods 3 & 4 in person (remote check in A-K Thursday and Friday) and Thursday/Friday L-Z periods 3 & 4 in person (remote check in L-Z Tuesday and Wednesday)
    • Please be sure to check your schedule in Q for any room changes, teacher changes or class changes
    • Applications for Trio Upward Bound can be found online-https://www.umt.edu/trioub/qualify-apply/default.php Upward Bound serves students at Big Sky, Hellgate and Browning and provides academic support, tutoring, college preparation support among many others! 
    • Check out the Montana Young Writers contest-https://montanayoungwriters.submittable.com/submit this is a great opportunity to submit your own work-details are found within the link.
    • Starting this week we will only have 1 dismissal bell @ 3:30pm.  The end of day dismissal has gone very well and with many blended classes having multiple dismissals was too challenging for those classes. 

    Big Sky Community-I hope you have a great week and thank you for your continued patience and positive communication. Please be in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
