Message from Dr. Bauter

Big Sandy High School community:

What a successful year we are having as we enter week 9 of school! Volleyball closes district play in the #2 spot. Football is undefeated in district with a 6-1 overall record, and the win over Kerens broke a 20-years-old curse of losses in Yamboree week. Cross Country athletes ALL advanced to the Regional contest this week. Band advanced to Area and scored Division 1 at Yamboree Marching Contest.  Floral Design has had a remarkable year of wins in contests. Yamboree saw the kiddos making sale in rabbits, pigs, and goats. Maci Childress had Reserve Grand goat which sold for $1600!!!  Ag Mech entered 30 projects (up from 4 two years ago, 13 last year!), with a Grand and lots of blue ribbons! Seth Burke has a full-ride scholarship to a D2 school.  The students and staff should be proud of their growing list of accomplishments. There is so much hard work these individuals invest on a daily basis. 

But success gives rise to success, and we will continue to invest in the things that make us successful.

Thank you for trusting your students to our care. The faculty here are committed to serving your children well. We had important conversations at the start of this year, and the faculty wrote a motto, mission, vision, and values for the high school campus. I share those with you, as our work this year is guided by the considerations here:


Big Sandy High School will establish a culture in which students desire to evolve as life-long learners, while continually demonstrating core values of honesty, reliability, and accountability.


Big Sandy High School values hard work, commitment to excellence, and accountability that lead to overall personal achievement and productive citizenship.


Big Sandy High School’s mission is to foster a drive for academic and personal success in a safe and caring environment with a faculty who provide meaningful, relevant learning opportunities and who mentor students as they transition to adulthood.


Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

It is our joy to serve this community. If I can help you in any way, do not hesitate to visit with me.


Go Wildcats,
Dr. Bauter
