Club Day

Excitement is in the Air!

BMS will be hosting its first club day of the year Friday, January 29th. Students are eager to get to participate in such clubs as: coloring/relaxation, Glee, Phoenix Pearls, Boys to Men, Battle of the Books, Environmental, Games, Literacy etc. More information will soon follow regarding procedures.



Please remember I am available to assist with any research, projects or multimedia presentations. I will need at least 3 days in advance to schedule the classes/groups. Also to better prepare, I will need a rubric for the activity. We will use the BIG 6 Research Model and students will create a works cited page.

Hats off to Mrs. Snow for allowing me to team teach with her in Math. The students had a great time playing math games, kahoot and Christmas games.
