BEA School Board Gets Update on Student Achievements

The Blue Earth Area School Board received good news during their meeting on Monday night.

Music teacher Paul Johnson gave an update on the music department at the school and informed the board that March is Music in our Schools Month.

He reported that the orchestra received a superior rating at the Large Group Contes and that the choir received a score of 38 out of 40, one of the highest scores ever.

BEA Teacher Holly Christians brought three student members of the Business Professional of America group to give an update to the board.

They reported there are 38 students in the group and that 32 of them competed at a recent competition, with 26 of those participants qualifying to go on to state competition.  Of those, 4 recently qualified for nationals, with 18 students listed as finalists who could still be considered for the May 4th-5th national competition.

In addition, the board received word during their meeting that the Math League group had just taken second place at the state competition earlier in the day.
