Welcome to Basehor Intermediate School, where our staff and students in Third, Fourth and Fifth grades strive to fulfill our Mission, “Believing Everyone Succeeds as we work Together”. We want to especially welcome all our new families to the Basehor area. Due to the increase in student numbers, we have added teachers in the third and fifth grades, as well as a half-time Special Education teacher this school year.
We are excited to have been chosen by the Department of Education in Kansas as a “Gemini Project” school, along with Basehor Elementary and Basehor-Linwood High School. We are in the planning stages this year for our School Redesign, under the direction of project leaders at the state level.
Our Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Bluejay groups for Reading are helping identify student needs in becoming fluent readers. Intervention Leaders work with small groups of students every day for thirty minutes per day, working on specific skills, which will improve their reading ability. We are proud of the progress our students make with this direct instructional style.
I look forward to working with our parents through our Site Council and BBT (Basehor Bluejay Team) parent group this year. Your participation in your child’s education is vital to their progress as young learners. Parents are an integral part of our Mission, “Believing Everyone (students, staff, parent, community) Succeeds as we work Together”!
