The Bedford Public Schools, closed by state order until at least May 4 to slow the spread of Covid-19, this week forays into a new universe: “required engagement with online learning.”
In a letter to student households Friday, School Superintendent Jon Sills wrote that the remote experience will be guided by a recent collaborative vision statement. This includes “providing meaningful work, promoting choice, flexibility, creativity, and engagement; nurturing connections with students; and “factoring in the anxiety and other conditions that the crisis is imposing on students, educators, and their families.”
Late last week and on Saturday morning, Bedford residents were cheered by the sight and sound of a Young Drummer marching through Bedford neighborhoods.
A member of Lexington’s William Diamond Junior Fife and Drum Corps for the past four and a half years, the Young Drummer has been interested in drumming since he was four-years-old.
His interest in fife and drum music aligned with an early passion for history after watching the Colonial re-enactors gather on Bedford Common before they marched off to Willson Park during Bedford’s annual Pole Capping ceremony.
