Principal’s Message

Dear BIS families!

            Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!  I am honored and excited to begin my first year as the principal of Berlin Intermediate School!  BIS is an amazing place and I am truly thrilled about joining the wonderful team of professionals that are here!  Prior to moving to BIS I have worked as a teacher and assistant principal at Stephen Decatur High School for the last 18 years.

           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!


Mr. Ryan Cowder, Principal
