August 08, 2017

Welcome back to another school year at Coon Rapids – Bayard.  The staff is putting the finishing touches on summer projects and teachers are busy setting up their classrooms in anticipation of the first day of school.

Speaking of summer projects, we have been busy around here this summer with new carpet in the 5 – 12 hallways, library, auditorium and some classrooms.  You will also notice that new seats have been installed in the auditorium and that the commons area bathrooms have been completely remodeled. In the main gymnasium new bleachers have been installed and all four locker rooms have been remodeled with the lockers being repaired and painted Crusader Red!!  We also ran the local hardware store out of paint as all 5 – 12 hallways have been painted along with the library, gymnasium, locker rooms and several of the classrooms.  The place looks great and we hope you take as much pride in the facilities as you do in being a Crusader!!

We will have several new faces around CR-B this year as we replaced departing staff members and hired several new teachers to accommodate our increased enrollment in 4th and 5th grade.  We’re also hoping to have several new student faces in the building, as well and I know you’ll join me in welcoming all of them to our school.

The start of a new school year is always my favorite time of the year as I look forward to working with students, staff, parents and patrons to make Coon Rapids – Bayard a great place to learn.

Brett Gibbs, Supt.
