“C’mon Everybody” and join us for Bedford High School’s Fall Musical, “All Shook Up,” starting Thursday, November 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Bedford High School Auditorium. This hilarious, jukebox musical features 25 of Elvis Presley’s greatest hits and tells the story of how a hip-swiveling, motorbike riding roustabout comes to a small, Midwestern town and transforms it with love and rock n’ roll. It’s family friendly and fun for people of all ages!
Show dates are November 12, 13, and 14 @ 7 p.m.; November 15 @ 2p.m.; November 20@ 7 p.m. and November 21 @2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults and can be purchased online at seatyourself.biz/bedfordhigh or at the door.
This fall, Bedford High School implemented a 1-to-1 Chromebook program for all Freshman and Sophomore students. Already, we have found that access to a device at anytime/anywhere during the school day helps improve teaching and learning.
Now that the program is launched, we believe upperclassmen will benefit from having a Chromebook device in school as well. As a result, we have decided to allow Juniors and Seniors to bring a Chromebook device to school starting January 4th.
Families can either purchase a Chromebook device through the district (no higher than $177) or provide their own. With either option, the device must be enrolled into our Chromebook management system so that it can be activated on our wireless network. This allows us to manage our school-provided Google accounts to push down content to students.
It is important that families understand that not all juniors and seniors are required to have a Chromebook. As a result, we do not have the same expectation that chromebooks will be integrated into instruction for juniors/senior classes as do have for freshman/sophomore classes. It will be up to each teacher to decide if and how the devices can be used in class.
If you would like your Junior or Senior student to be able to bring a Chromebook device to school, please submit this form no later than November 13th. After November 13th, we will confirm your selection and provide the final discounted price for those opting to purchase a device through the district. Families will also have the option to purchase accidental breakage/theft insurance for devices purchased through the district.

In response to the threat posed to our community by the substance abuse epidemic, the Bedford Police Department in conjunction with the Bedford School District will host a community-wide meeting on Tuesday, November 10th, from 7P to 10P at the Manchester Christian Church, 56 Old Bedford Road, Bedford (across from Memorial School). We want to thank Manchester Christian Church for graciously donating the use of their facility for this important endeavor.
The goal is to involve individuals and groups from throughout our community. The focus is to first de-stigmatize this issue to encourage parent(s), student(s), loved one(s), friends and family to seek assistance for not only those suffering from substance abuse but also for guidance in education and treatment (agenda). To accomplish this, we plan to have some gallant members of the community discuss their struggle with abuse in their families followed by a panel discussion and, most importantly, community engagement that we hope will lead to an action plan.
Anyone seeking more information about the meeting may contact the Police Department or the Superintendent's Office in person, by telephone or email. On behalf of the Bedford Police Department and the Bedford School District, we want to thank you all for your assistance and whatever level of participation you are able to offer.
