    BCMS STUDENT AWARDS

    The end of school is always an exciting and “rewarding” time as we pause to recognize students for their academic achievements throughout the year.  We gathered to celebrate our achievements during our grade level award convocations last week.  As part of our established yearly Honor Day award traditions, we award our “BCMS Three ‘R’ Awards.”

    Brownstown Central Middle School promotes the daily practice of our three core principles:  Respect, Responsibility and Resourcefulness.  As these are the founding principles upon which student achievement and life success is built, we recognize three students each year from each of our grade level teams that have best demonstrated and modeled these qualities this school year. 

    As the “Three R Awards” are the top middle school awards given, I would like to recognize and thank these students for their efforts, example and leadership this year. 

    Grade 6 – Class of 2028

    Respect – Jayzlynn Noblitt
    Responsibility – Madison Darlage
    Resourcefulness – Izabella Gomez

    Grade 7 – Class of 2027

    Respect – Dimetra Garner
    Responsibility – Ella Nerht
    Resourcefulness – Brenton Penrose

    Grade 8 – Class of 2026

    Respect – Gage Mull
    Responsibility – Madison Bennett
    Resourcefulness – Hailey Bair

    For the first time this year, BCMS initiated a TRIBE TEAM competition.  It was our own “race to the top” as students competed as part of an intra-school team to earn BRAVE BUCKS for themselves and points for their team.  We would like to congratulate the Wolves TRIBE TEAM for winning the TRIBE TEAM competition this inaugural year.  As a team, the Wolves earned a combined 14,893 BRAVE BUCKS.

    The other TRIBE TEAMS did very well in their own right!

    Polar Bears - 14,872
    Unicorns - 13,716
    Cobras - 12,855
    Flamingos - 12,246

    We would also like to congratulate and recognize the top five BRAVE BUCK earners in each grade.  Those students were:

    Grade 6 – Class of 2028
