Principal’s Message

Dear BIS families!

            Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!  I am extremely excited to begin another great school year!  BIS is an amazing place and boasts a wonderful team of professionals that work incredibly hard every day doing what is best for kids!  I am proud to have the opportunity to serve as the principal of such an outstanding school!  This year will mark my 20th year in Worcester County Public Schools.  Before coming to BIS, I had the privilege of teaching chemistry at Stephen Decatur High School for 12 years.  I also had the opportunity to serve as an assistant principal for 6 years at SDHS.

Our commitment at Berlin Intermediate School is to create a safe, yet enjoyable, intellectually challenging learning environment for your child to prepare them for a successful future.  BIS holds high standards for academic progress and responsible citizenship.  The staff understands the impact that they play in each child’s life and it is a responsibility that they do not take lightly.  They strive each and every day to bring out the best in every student.

            I feel privileged to lead such an outstanding school community and I am looking forward to what I know will be a successful and rewarding school year!  My sincere hope is that you have an opportunity over the summer break to spend quality time with your family and friends.  Enjoy each day taking time to relax, rest and have fun! 

Proud to be a Junior Seahawk!

Ryan Cowder, Principal
