KuleYo's Student and Staff Member of the Month
Battlefield High School is proud to announce the January 2015 KuleYo’s Student and Staff Member of the Month!
Carol Rice is the January 2015 KuleYo’s Student of the Month.  Carol is an 11th grade student at Battlefield High School. Ms. Provenzano, who nominated Carol, said: “Carol is incredibly dependable and always does whatever is asked of her.  She is quiet but hardworking and dedicated and I enjoy being her teacher.”
Ms. Zumbrum is the January 2015 KuleYo’s Staff Member of the Month.  Ms. Zumbrum has been the registrar for Battlefield High School for the last six years.  Ms. Zumbrum was nominated by the Counseling Department because “she is often the first impression of Battlefield High School for incoming new students.  She immediately creates a great rapport with the student/family.  She is friendly, helpful, interested and always does her best to make the student/family feel welcome and at ease.  Often, by the time the student/family leaves her office, they are laughing and acting like life-long friends.”
Battlefield High School would like to thank KuleYo’s Frozen Yogurt, located at Merchant’s View Square, for sponsoring the Student and Staff Member of the Month.
Project Lead the Way / Engineering - added to course offerings
Battlefield High School is pleased to announce that next year, 2015-2016, Project Lead the Way / Engineering will be added to our course offerings. PLTW / Engineering seeks to apply science, technology, engineering and math to solve real world problems, where the classes focus on the process, rather than the final answer.
In the inaugural year, we will phase in the program with the first course, “Intro to Engineering Design,” a class that uses 3-D modeling software (CAD) to design solutions. This course is open to all Battlefield HS students.  PLTW Curriculum    Video – PLTW / Intro to Engineering Design.
