Grateful for November
We have kicked off November and it is rolling! We have six weeks of instruction until the end of the first semester!
Our focus for the next three weeks other than quality instruction is integrating the theme of gratefulness into our daily routines and actions.
We are proud to celebrate our Veteran's with our annual Veteran's Day Assembly on Friday November 10th at 9:30 am in the BCHS gym.We invite all families to send in a picture of a family member who has or is serving in our Armed Forces. We will scan the photo and add it to our Veterans Day slide show. Please submit these as soon as possible. All submissions should be placed in an envelope with the student's name so that we can return it after scanning it. Students may turn these into their homeroom teacher or give them directly to Mrs. Opper. Please note that we are adding these submissions to our existing slide show. We really hope you can join us Friday!
Please make sure that you are signed up for my REMIND, as well as the grade level REMINDS so you don't miss a beat! Quarter two is going to be as fast and elite as quarter one and you don't want to miss a beat!

Map Testing- Reports and Goals
Winter Map Testing Window: November 29th - December 20th
Our next session of winter MAP testing begins right after our Thanksgiving holiday. We will be using our goal setting from WIN to track these next four weeks as we prepare to test in Reading, Language Usage, and Math. I can't wait to see how much we have grown! We will have MAP reports available for parents at our November 7th Parent Univeristy night! Join us for lots of great information and resources!
Notes from Ms. Raeburn
We are off to a great November start! Our schoolhouse was packed with families on Wednesday to honor our Fall Athletes and I was so proud of the elite turnout and support! What an amazing night! Thank you to all our families and community who supported this awesome event!
I am VERY excited about our first Parent University night this week on Tuesday! We will be featuring sessions on Literacy and Grading, and I will probably throw in some good conversation about homework in the middle grades as well!
Please take some time to read our School and Parent Compact form. We sent them home last week and need the signed copy returned. If you need another copy, please call us and we can send one home. You can also read the compact here:
We very much need these forms back, so please take the time to sign and send in!
We are proud of the relationship we are building with our families and our parents are we work to grow our scholars! All of our Title I information can be found on our BCMS website under the "Student/Parent" tab.

We are so thankful for our PTO and their support!
Whatever I Need!
WIN period is an elite time for our scholars to work on goal setting, grade checking, acceleration of curriculum, and enrichment. Please ask your child what goals they are working on during WIN time! The more we talk about goals and we model that having goals is critical, the more they will work to achieve them! Clubs is running great! I love seeing all the scholars discovering new interests and passions!
The current WIN Schedule looks like this:
Monday- Goal setting and Grade Checking- Goals are set based on Reading RIT MAP scores
Tuesday- Enrichment and Remediation Rotations begin! Short form MAP 11/7 or 11/8
Wednesday- Enrichment/Remediation/Kindness Rotations
Thursday- Enrichment/Remediation/Kindness Rotations
