#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)

We are collecting canned goods all week! Please donate to our community! All donations will be used locally! Thank you for your support!


MAP testing will begin after the Thanksgiving Break. This will be a great assessment to compare scholars from the start of the year (FALL MAP) to now (WINTER MAP). Students will begin setting goals the week after Thanksgiving related to MAP performance!


Clubs are ready to go! We will be surveying to get student preferences and interests in the following weeks. We will begin clubs second semester. Clubs will be held every Friday. Students will preference three club choices, understanding that they may not get their first preference. We are excited to get CLUBS rolling at the start of the new year!


Bryan County Schools is taking part in an AdvancED review this school year. The AdvancED process helps our district with accreditation and also gives us valuable data and information that we can use to reflect and plan as we grow to be the very best school district we can be! This week, I am launching the parent survey for our families to take. This is a very brief survey and it is anonymous. If you could take the time to complete it, our school would appreciate it! The link to our survey is here:

The surveys close on Friday 11/16


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:

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!
