From Lowell Sun: International Spy Museum to Feature Work of Former Billerica Student

One of the things I will do with this blog is to gather news stories about some of the great things that not only our current students are doing, but our alumni as well.  So, in that vain, this is a great story about Sarah Nault, BMHS Class of 2014.

Site Enabling Construction Beginning for New BMHS

This morning, the Billerica Memorial High School project has reached an exciting new phase with site enabling work beginning in the field behind the existing high school.  Silt fences were being placed around the western edge of the site this morning, and tree clearing for the path for the construction road entrance off of River Street is scheduled to begin tomorrow.

The picture below was taken this morning from the parking lot near the entrance to BEAM behind the high school:

Full construction will not begin until the spring, but this early work will allow the construction team to get a faster start once the weather allows.  We'll continue to monitor progress and share pictures with everyone along the way.

Welcome to the New Superintendent's Blog

This has been long overdue, but I'm excited to be starting this blog to share what is happening in the Billerica Public Schools!  This site will talk about upcoming events, highlight student achievements, and provide my quick thoughts about news that impact the system.

I hope you enjoy the site, and I welcome your feedback to tpiwowar@billericak12.com!
