#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!
January is here and we will be sending home our Read to Them book projects! Scholars will also be participating in the One Word projects on their teams! We are excited to continue the elite literacy and social emotional work we are doing at BCMS!
Notes from Ms. Raeburn
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.
Grade Reports will be sent home Thursday, January 10th
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!
