BSHS fans ready for homecoming festivities

September 20, 2012

Light the bonfire, strike up the band and don the black and gold — Big Spring homecoming time has arrived.

Big Spring High School 2012 homecoming celebrations kick into high gear tonight and continue with events scheduled through Saturday.

BSHS students have marked homecoming all week with themed “dress up days,” but really get a chance to celebrate tonight at the annual bonfire rally. This year, the bonfire has been moved from the the old city compost facility to a vacant lot adjacent to Memorial Stadium. The event is scheduled to begin at around 8 p.m.

ISD enrollments get an A+; Big Spring exceeds 4,000 for 1st time in more than a decade

September 20, 2012

School enrollment is busting out all over, it seems.

Fueled by the oil industry hiring boom, most area public schools are seeing a surge in enrollment figures, officials confirmed.

Nowhere is the increase more notable than at Big Spring Independent School District, which is recording enrollment figures not seen in more than a decade.

The latest count shows 4,148 students enrolled at BSISD campuses, an increase of more than 200 from the same time last year — and that figure doesn't take into account more than 80 children enrolled in pre-kindergarten classes.
