December is here and it will be busy!

This week, we have Picture retakes on Tuesday, Coffee and Conversations with Project Lead the Way the focus on Wednesday, Stop, Drop , and CODE on Thursday (Shhhh..it's a secret), as well as our Winter Band Concert and basketball games!

We begin MAP testing tomorrow! Our 8th grade scholars will take the READING. We will be MAP testing for the next 9 days, one grade per day, Reading, Math, and Language Usage (that order). This data gives us great, quality information on planning for specific skills and standards. Remember our goals are rooted in progress, and progress means we are always in pursuit of mastery of the standards. We are excited to see how much our scholars have grown from the start of the school year until now.

#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)

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 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!
