April 25, 2020

Note from Dr. Briscoe…

I want to thank all of you for your outstanding support of the 2019-20 BA Annual Fund.  After not meeting our goal for the past several years, we have been able to exceed our goal of $200,000 by $43,000.  We are now at $243,000 and still climbing.  You are helping us to fill the gap between what student pay for tuition and what it costs us to cover our costs and keep the lights on at BA.  Thank you for your help!

TONIGHT is our first and hopefully our last Virtual BABS.  This is the 35th annual BABS and because of Covid-19 we are hosting BABS as a virtual event.  We had several people come together to make a 35 minute video on April 15.  It will be very strange to deliver a speech on the stage in the BA Auditorium at the podium with the cameraman being the only person in the auditorium.  We need you to go on-line and bid on both silent and live auction items.  There are several great items that we hope you will find interesting enough to bid on.  We will conclude the program with the fund-a-need portion of the program.  All dollars generated in the fund-a-need will go to mission and scholarship.  Our enrollment is down and we really need to open our doors for more students.  The dollars that you donate on Saturday will help open the doors for students.  You know the quality of a BA education and how it changes the lives of students forever.

The Governor on Thursday extended distance learning for the rest of the school year.  We are tentatively planning on having the school year end on May 22 for everyone.  We will have a decision on Graduation by next Friday. 

We value all of you for trusting your students’ education with a great faculty.

Dr. Chuck Briscoe

UPDATES

BABS 2020 TONIGHT!

BABS will be live tonight via Facebook https://www.facebook.com/FaribaultBA/ and on our YouTube channel at https://tinyurl.com/bethlehemacademy. The auction site is live and can be found at https://one.bidpal.net/babs. Our Fund-a-Need this year is for mission and scholarship – donations can be made online or by sending a check to us at BA.  We are well on our way to our Fund-a-Need goal of $70,000.  If we hit the goal tonight, we will get a matching gift of $95,000.  Thank you for your support. Now, more than ever, #WEAREBA!

Distance Learning Update

Governor Tim Walz on Thursday issued an executive order announcing that all schools in Minnesota will remain closed through the end of the academic year. Our teachers and staff have planned for this possibility and are prepared to continue instructing your child via distance learning through the end of the school year.

In light of this announcement, we have made some adjustments to our academic calender: May 1 and May 4 are distance learning days at BA. (The public schools have this day off; we do not.) The last day of regular class instruction, especially at the high school level, will be May 15. The week of May 18 will be for completion of final projects, papers, tests and make up work with the last day of school falling on May 22. Students will turn in laptops and textbooks the week of May 26-28. 

The Minnesota State High School League yesterday announced the cancellation of all spring activities. We are making plans to host the Mary and Awards Ceremony virtually, with a decision on Commencement by next week. Senior received their caps and gowns yesterday and had their pictures taken. We continue to honor the Class of 2020 via social media posts and will continue to find ways to celebrate them and share this important milestone with the community while still adhering to stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines. 

Thank you for your patience, understanding and flexibility during this unprecedented time. The health and safety of our students remains our top priority as we continue to navigate this national health crisis.

April 17, 2020

Note from Dr. Briscoe…

We continue to be very proud of our students and teachers at BA. We know this is not easy and we are making adjustments to work load as we move forward. We look forward to honoring the Class of 2020, and continue to discuss options for Senior Week in the event the Governor extends distance learning through the end of the school year. We will all be stronger people for enduring the Covid Challenge of 2020. My prayers are that there will be light at the end of the tunnel and that school, church, and our lives will return to normal sometime in 2020. The “new normal” is very hard for us to do. 

April 2020 Faribault Daily News Column

Opportunities to Grow:

As a long-time educator, I have witnessed several students and staff members rise above the challenges that life can throw at them and find a way to adapt and continue to grow and flourish.  Sometimes the curve balls in life can be very hard to hit.  When the pitch is really inside you will have to hit the ground and dust yourself up and get back in the batting box.

I love baseball.  My dad was a very good pitcher and started throwing the ball back and forth with me before I was in kindergarten. I still have his pitching glove which is smaller than the choppers I wear to shovel snow. As I got older all of the lessons paid off as I could throw the ball hard and have fun playing baseball. Until a few years ago I used to say that I could still help the Twins using their model of pitching to contact.

The many years of pitching finally caught up with my right shoulder. An MRI in late 2018 indicated a slight rotator cuff tear.  An MRI in early 2020 indicated that the shoulder was now a mess and I would need surgery. The tear was into the bicep and the pain was very challenging. The doctor said that I needed the surgery immediately if I hoped to save the parts of my shoulder. I had hoped to wait until after BABS or in the summer but my decision to have the surgery immediately proved to be a blessing with the virus hitting in mid-March.

On March 9th Donna and I walked into Summit Orthopedics at 5:30 a.m. for surgery. This was the first day of spring break and I hoped that I would minimize the number of days of school I would miss. I had no idea on that day that we would probably not be going back to school until fall. Dr. Warner told me that my job was to show up and relax. He would do the heavy lifting and together we would get through this. After several hours I left with my shoulder in a brace and my new ice machine in the car.  The repairs were worse than expected and I now have two screws in my bicep and two holding one of the tendons to the bone. I will not set off any alarms at the airport as the screws are plastic. My favorite Faribault jeweler had promised me that the first few days would be the worst and he was correct. I spent most of my day and night in a recliner for the first few days.  t got better with each passing day.

Going from two hands to one presented many challenges. It was my first time at bat in my youth. I had to keep swinging and to remember to run to first, not third base when I hit the ball. Eventually the swing got easier and someday I hope to hit a homerun again. I am always hopeful and there were days I could hear one of my mother’s favorite comments, “things could be worse.”  After two weeks I got permission to drive one-handed which got easier with practice. There now is no coffee on my morning drive with only one hand. We are on a long break from dancing and we pray that we can resume dancing on the kitchen floor and riding a bike in May. The fine art of shaving is a real challenge with one hand and so is brushing your teeth. 

This has been a reminder for me to appreciate the simple things in life, like the ability to tie your shoes and open a door. We take many things for granted, but between the virus and my surgery I am smelling the flowers, drinking good coffee and practicing social distancing. Like most of you, I am not wired to shelter in place. I pray that someday we can meet for coffee, get on a dance floor and hug each other again. Stay safe, stay home and keep washing your hands.

 

Dr. Chuck Briscoe

Note from Dr. Briscoe…

I continue to be very proud of the BA staff and students as we finish week four of online learning.  We continue to work to meet the needs of your student and to address any technology issues that get in the way of teaching and learning.  I know that we are all learning things that we can use for the rest of this year and for many years to come.  

We have decided to postpone the May 2nd Prom. Instead, we are working on options for a rescheduled and less formal event, hopefully sometime this summer. We are also looking at the end of the year school activities including the Mary Ceremony, the Awards Ceremony, and Graduation 2020.  We will have an answer for you soon on those three very important school events. We are looking at the possibility of having the seniors come back in the fall for a formal graduation ceremony on a weekend. This would allow us to have student speakers and present your students diploma in a formal setting.  We will also look at doing something simple at the end of May for graduation. We will have a clear answer in the next few days.

I know these are very challenging times as we pray that we can beat this virus through the shelter in place model that has been extended through May 4th. You can reach all of us via e-mail and we can call you back with any questions that you may have.  This will be the first Easter that I have not been in church, had an Easter egg hunt or had an Easter basket. I have still not held my new grandson born on March 26, 2020.  Stay safe, stay home and remember the value of prayer.

 

Dr. Chuck Briscoe
