Tuesday evening, the Blackford School Board named Mr. Jim Fox the Principal of Blackford Intermediate School, in addition to his role as Principal of Montpelier Elementary School. Mr. Fox has served as the Principal of Montpelier Elementary School for the past seven years, providing excellent leadership and guidance, while establishing positive relationships with students and parents. He is very active in our community, and enjoys coaching youth sports. Mr. Fox resides in Blackford County with his wife Michelle, and his children Bayla, Maisy and Jase. BCS will be hiring an Elementary Assistant Principal to serve under the direction of Mr. Fox to assist in the leadership of the two buildings. We are excited to welcome Mr. Fox to his new role, and look forward to the upcoming school year. Pictured are Mr. Fox and (from left) Bayla, Jase, and Maisy. Thanks to Mr. Fox's wife, Michelle, for providing the photo.
