(Bastrop)--Bastrop Middle School theater students will make history when they perform We Will Rock You The Musical at the Jerry Fay Wilhelm Performing Arts Center. This will mark the first time a middle school has performed the musical on any stage in the world since it typically is performed by high school students and young adults. A total of 75 students are involved in the historic production, which opens Friday.
January is School Board Recognition Month, and Bastrop ISD is proud to join other districts across the state in thanking our local leaders for their dedication and advocacy on behalf of public schools. As elected officials, our board members are voices for the community, always serving first and foremost in the best interest of public schoolchildren. Click the headline for the full story.

The needs of Bastrop ISD are real and rooted in the growth we know is happening in our community over the next 10 years. To help the Board of Trustees and district leadership decide how best to proceed as it relates to meeting these needs through a future bond election and tax ratification election, we would appreciate your participation in a brief, confidential survey. You can access the survey until December 31, 2016. The survey is available in English at http://www.goo.gl/PvDTCr and Spanish at http://www.goo.gl/7K4NEg.
