Notes from Ms. Raeburn

Please take the time to take the Georgia school survey by clicking the link above. Your feedback matters and it counts as we work to improve outcomes for our scholars and make our schoolhouse ELITE!

I am working on several student-led projects this semester. I have been in conversations with my Principals Advisory Council as well as some elite scholars to bring back break time at lunch. I will be taking this idea to our leadership team to see if we can make this possible for our scholars. Another amazing plan that was brought to me was to create an outdoor break space with picnic tables, space to play basketball, 4 - square, and other games. I can't wait to begin planning that project. Also, Ms. Meeks' gardening club is renovating the Greenhouse in the back of our school and we are excited about the plants and vegetables that she is going to grow.

I am so proud of our schoolhouse and our scholars and what they have done in the last two years to be a voice, lead positive change, and make our school truly an ELITE place to be!


The peeks of the week are listed under our "weekly updates" tab on our website. We hope you are finding this information helpful in keeping up with the day to day of your child and what they are doing at school.

Other #BeBCMS Nuggets:


I hope you have noticed the posters and visual reminders around our school. E+R=O is a simple skill. The E stands for the event (what happened), the R stands for how you responded (your action) and the O stands for the Outcome (what did you get). We are helping our scholars to think about E+R=O in every situation. Our goal is to help our scholars begin to see and understand that the better their R is, the better their O will be!
