Every year, our students had the opportunity to participate in the annual KidCheck Health Fair. Each participating student was evaluated for height, weight and BMI. They also had examinations of the ears, eyes, nose and throat along with heart, lungs and blood pressure checks . Nursing students from Snead State and Jacksonville State performed the exams with the supervision of their nursing instructors. BSLK students also had an opportunity to be evaluated by a dentist from Sarrell Dental Center. Each student received dental information along with a toothbrush and toothpaste. This is always a fun opportunity for our BSLK students as well as a good learning opportunity for the nursing students.

In the ESL classes at BSLK, the emphasis is on developing vocabulary and the ability to understand and speak about day to day activities. During the year, we have many practical units such as getting ready for the day, going to school, careers, transportation and going to the doctor and many more. The picture below is a class that is completing the food unit. The students at the end of the unit went grocery shopping with a prepared list, checked out of the ”store” by identifying all the items in their basket, took it “home”, and prepared the food. Then they set the table correctly and enjoyed their “meal.” Pictured are students from Mrs. Armstrong’s and Mrs. Eidson’s classes along with Mrs. Margaret Cavannah the ESL teacher at BSLK.

On January 24th Mrs. Ray's students became king/queen of the 100th day. They even made official 100 day crowns and glasses. They counted 100 stickers onto their crowns and made 100 day glasses to wear. The day ended with a special 100 day snack. Each child brought a bag of 100 of their favorite snack treats to add to the snack. One student declared it "the best snack ever".s C
