    “The Principal’s Post”


    SPRING BREAK

    BCCSC will be on Spring Break next week . . . March 25-29.  We would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable spring vacation.  Whether traveling, or staying close to home, our best wishes to you, the students and staff, for a rejuvenating and restful week.  

    Weather forecast . . . what does it matter . . . we choose our own attitudes and outlook.    God’s speed.


    NINTH LEVEL REVIEW REWARD ACTIVITY

    Those students earning “on-level” status for the ninth level review period (February 19th – March 8th) enjoyed treats and/or recreation time as grade levels the afternoon of Friday, March 15th.

    And, here are the number of BCMS students that participated in the ninth on-level reward activity:

    Grade 6:  80 “on-level” / 117 6th graders enrolled = 68%

    Grade 7:  112 “on-level” / 134 7th graders enrolled = 84%

    Grade 8:  78 “on-level”/ 110 8th graders enrolled = 71%

    All grades:  270 “on-level” / 361 BCMS students = 75%

    After each level review, we look at where we are, in comparison to where we’ve been, to help us determine where we are going.

    We would invite you to click on any one of the following On-Level History reports that might interest you.

    2018-2019 All Current Grades On-Level History Report

    Entire School On-Level History Report (2014-2015 thru 2018-2019)

    Grade 6 On-Level History Report (Class of 2021 – Class of 2025)

    Grade 7 On-Level History Report (Class of 2020 – Class of 2024)

    Grade 8 On-Level History Report (Class of 2019 – Class of 2023)

    We will continue to track our on-level percentages as classes and as a school each level review period.

    To have 100% of our student body to earn “on level” status remains our goal.  To achieve that goal would put us closer to our aim: for all BCMS students to develop those necessary study habits which will enable our students to be successful at BCHS and allow them to reach their fullest academic potential.

    And, we challenge the students to always be cognizant of their level status.  As we start “Week 31” of the school year, we are already starting “week 2” in the tenth level review period.  

    DAILY HABITS . . . DAILY RESULTS!


    BCMS FEBRUARY STUDENT OF THE MONTH

    On the evening of March 12th, at the regular school board meeting of school trustees, Brownstown Central Middle School will recognize Clare Fitzwater as the February BCMS Brave of the Month.

    BCMS promotes and reinforces the three character traits of Respect, Responsibility and Resourcefulness in our students.  We focus on the development of these character traits, in addition to academic learning, to help establish a solid foundation upon which to build future success at BCHS and beyond.  Each month we look to recognize a BCMS student who models the Three R’s of our school to his/her classmates through their example.

    This is what Clare’s eighth grade team of teachers had to say of her!  “The 8th grade class proudly presents Miss Clare Fitzwater as our Brave of the Month for February. Clare has grown tremendously as a student over the course of the school year. She has asserted herself as a natural leader. Clare is a three year member of Tribal Council. She has been instrumental in raising money for Riley, leading our school in our Annual Christmas Cheer Drive, and spreading awareness about the dangers of drugs during our Red Ribbon Week campaigns. Not only has she displayed leadership and responsibility in Tribal Council, she has excelled in her new role as a peer tutor with struggling students. She is encouraging, helpful, and supportive when working with these students and always has her peers’ best interests at heart. Clare's daily attitude at school demonstrates her future-oriented mindset. She holds herself to a high standard of accountability as it relates to her education and where it may lead. Congratulations, and thank you, Clare, for all of your hard work and dedication to making BCMS a better place!”

    CONGRATULATIONS, Clare!! . . . and THANK YOU!!


    BCMS BRAVE BOTICS TEAM
    Submitted by:  Ms. Ault, Brave Botics Coach

    On Saturday, March 9th, the BCMS BRAVE Botics team completed its season by competing at the state competition at Lucas Oil Stadium.  

    Great job, team! Two BCMS teams made it to the Final Qualifying Rounds of the Neil Armstrong Division. Team 98098 G (Colton Whittymore and Conner Wynn) was our top finisher. Team 98098 C (Holden Tovey and Cody Burnside) was next highest BCMS finisher. Unfortunately, our final ranking was not high enough to move on to Worlds. Thanks to all of you for supporting our season.


    WASHINGTON, D.C., FINAL CRITERIA CHECKS!

    There are 35 8th grade students registered to attend BCMS’ third annual class trip to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.  These students are reminded of the trip criteria (academic, attendance, and behavior) that is required to remain eligible.  Students can access the Washington, D.C. information page on this page (right column) for a complete list of the eligibility criteria.  As the 10th Level Review period concludes on Friday, April 4th, the final student “criteria check” will occur the week of April 15th – 19th.  Any student failing to meet the requirement in any of the criteria categories for this final check will be removed from the trip registration list.


    BCMS LUNCH ACCOUNTS

    As the end of the year approaches, our “backs” come up against “it” as it relates to settling/closing out lunch accounts for the current school year.

    The BCCSC Policy regarding “charged” lunches states:
    • No a la cart items may be purchased with a negative balance.
    • Students may not accumulate over a negative $5 balance. A student will not be allowed to purchase a lunch with a negative $5 balance (a peanut butter sandwich and milk will be provided at no charge for a maximum of five days).’
    • All negative lunch balances must be paid in full by the last week of school. A student will not be allowed to purchase a lunch with a negative balance the last week of school. All lunch balances will be carried forward to the next school year.
    It is our goal to keep our students and parents informed as to their account status.  Please feel free to contact the school at any time should you have a question about your student’s balance or school lunch “history.”  We are here to help, and we definitely want to avoid any “awkward meal moments” as the end of the year approaches.
