I truly hope each of you enjoyed a week of less stress, downtime, and family time. I enjoyed doing some "normal" things that I don't get to do very often, such as: take my kids to school, pick them up, talk to them about their day at 3:30!. It was very nice!

But I am well rested and ready to be back with the coolest middle schoolers on the planet!

We have four weeks of ELITE instruction before we wrap up 2018! I can't believe it. In these next four weeks, we will have Winter MAP testing, projects, field trips, dances, and many awesome opportunities to grow, learn, and continue to become awesome!

I am looking forward to goal setting with each of our scholars as we get the winter season underway. In order to know where you want to go, you need to know where you are. I challenge you to ask your child about their winter academic goals in the month of December!

#ReadersAreLeaders (The 5) WIN!

WIN time Works!

How you can support WIN time at home:

We are proud to offer WIN time daily to our scholars to grow a culture of readers!

Beginning in January, we will be featuring two novels that our entire school community will read. We are very excited to be the first school in Bryan County school to do the One School, One Book project! Stay tuned for details from grade level teams about what books we are reading!

Notes from Ms. Raeburn (The 10)

Thank you for your support in completing our AdvancEd surveys. All data collected will help us serve our community and our scholars better!

In January we are going to kick off a new event at BCMS: Our Saturday Spectacular!
We will be offering Math Enrichment for scholars on Saturday from 9-12 as well as a Parent University from 9-10 to go dissect the Extended Writing piece on GMAS. We are looking forward to offering Saturday opportunities to grow our scholars and to support our families! Stay tuned for more details! The first session will be Saturday, January 26th and transportation WILL be available! Scholars who are interested and qualify will be contacted in January.

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 your 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!
