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

Notes from Ms. Raeburn (The 10)

This is the last week of our first quarter. Our scholars have had a great nine weeks of learning and engagement. The next nine weeks will be focused on continuing that learning and making sure scholars are growing in their reading and their love of reading. We will be gearing up for the mid marker of MAP testing (December) and taking the RI (Reading Inventory) for our scholars who are taking Read 180.


We have been having some discipline issues at our HS Athletic events involoving middle schoolers. For this reason, last week we emphasized our #BeBCMS expectations. If we continue to have issues, we will require supervision by an adult with our middle schoolers for BCHS athletic events. Help support our positive behavior supports by reviewing these expectations with your child!


In January we are going to kick off a new event at BCMS: Our Saturday Spectacular!
We will be offering Math Enrichment and Literacy 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 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:

E+R=O

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!
