Celebration of the Arts
On Thursday, April 3, BCD joined other area public and private schools in a celebration of Youth Art Month organized by Renaissance Arts Center and held at Crissey Farms in Great Barrington. The evening began with a proclamation read by State Representative Smitty Pignatelli, and included music, dance, and an art exhibition. Each school was limited to only 10 pieces of art from grades 5 through 12. It was a very difficult choice from a very talented student body, and the following students had work on display: Kendall P, Ruby M, Ryan B, Hayley S, Max K, Wilder H, Jeri H, Kaylo M, Stella M, and Cooper R.
BCD was proud to send a group of its Grade 8 students to participate again this year in the Youth Leadership Conference, STRIVE (Students Teaching Respect, Integrity, Values and Equality). The conference included schools from all over Berkshire County and was sponsored by the Berkshire District Attorney’s office. Workshops during the day included “Finding Your Inner Leader”, “Dynamic Influence”, and “The Stress Response” in addition to others covering topics around LGBT Allyship, drugs, bullying, and becoming a change agent. It was a terrific day for all involved!
