#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!

1. Encourage reading at home!
2. Help your child find a great book

3. Go to the library

4. Get on your iBooks and download samples of some classics! I just downloaded James and the Giant Peach by Ronald Dahl!
5. Do a read aloud together!

We are workings on creating opportunities for books all over our campus. If you have books to donate, we would love them! Please drop them off in our book drop in the main office! Thank you!

Notes from Ms. Raeburn (The 10)

We had a great week at Bryan County Middle School.

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.

Grades are beginning to get entered into the gradebook and grading is a HOT topic! Remember, middle school scholars get grades for tests only. That means in a 9 week period, your child may only have betweek 6-7 grades. Tests are called "summatives" and summatives measure mastery of a standard. Often times these happen at the end of a unit or chapter. If you have questions about grades, please contact me or the classroom teacher!

This year, as part of our PBIS model, we are working on a new skill:


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 happend), the R stands for how your resonded (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 thier O will be!

PLEASE sign up to use Powerschool. PowerSchool is our grading and infomation communication system. Sign up is EASY! Stop by the front office and we will get you signed up and get you a log in. You can use it on your phone and from an app! Never wonder again about missing work, upcoming work, or grades! It's all at your fingertips in Powerschool!

GMAS results will be released soon. If you have individual questions about your child, please email me. I would be happy to sit down with you and explain your child's data, progress, and goals for the school year.

Thank you for being proactive and for supporting our school and our passion work! I am proud to be your principal and would love to hear from you! Please know that if you have a concern or if you hear something that doesn't feel right, contact me! eraeburn@bryan.k12.ga.us or 912-626-5050 or 912.255.0630 (Cell).

This will be an ELITE year!
