Notes from Ms. Raeburn (The 10)

We are ready and ExExExCited to kick off the second quarter!

The second nine weeks is a critical time period in the school year because scholars are in a routine and have been in school now for 9 weeks. We will be taking MAP in December and two reading inventory assessments to track progress of our scholars. It is important for us to do these measures to make sure our instructional practices are meeting the needs of our scholars.


Also this month is Red Ribbon week and we have lots of exciting events planned, including dress up days that are consistent across Lanier, BCES, and BCHS. Stay tuned for information about those days, including an Anti-Bullying day during that week.


This nine weeks, I will be working to include articles for you to read on tramua informed practices and education. Trauma impacts how we run schools and what we do daily in our schoolhouses. As educators and a community it is critical that we imploy tramua informed practices in our work with adsoclecents.


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!
