There's a lot happening @ BW the last few weeks of school: track meets, final grades, day trips to Camp Keep & Magic Mountain, & assemblies, Roady shows his inner Ferris Bueller to remind everyone to take a look around. https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPd47Y4bb/ @smallschoolda @stemtaught

The great thing about PE at BW is that students do plenty of cardio work, but also learn the intricasies of sports like croquet. Share a spot of tea while striking a ball with a mallet. Hopefully the striker can avoid the oppo "opponent". @smallschoolda #1townschoolcommunity

Roady & Gumby are back in BW working hard, although Gumby is a bit worn out after a few days at the @smallschoolda conference in Sacramento. They were the stars of the speech that Buttonwillow's Superintendent, @stuartpackard gave to open the statewide conference. @nrea1

Fundamentally good decision making and great student ingenuity. When the construction of a solar project requires an ADA compliant jog in the fence, why not turn it into a soccer goal. @smallschoolda @sitelogiq
