Good Afternoon BWA families,

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weekend! This week we hit our halfway mark of 2017-2018 school year and will close out marking period 2! This is a major turning point for many kids and the time to motivate them if they need to improve their grades. 

We have just 45 days before the ELA test but two breaks standing in between that. As we turn the corner to the second half of the year, it is important to now demand high academic expectations of students. Our main goal is to create independent critical thinkers and learners.

Feel free to come in to meet with your child's teacher should you have any concerns and/or suggestions how to further support your child's academics together.

Principal's Message - Happy New Year!

Good Afternoon, BWA Team and Family!

Happy New Year and welcome to 2018! I hope you all had a wonderful, restful break with loved ones and family and got the chance to rest and recharge for what's ahead. The first third of our school year is officially behind us. We have spent the beginning of the year working to align common practices across classrooms. We have practiced entry and exit routines so that our hallways and classrooms are orderly. We have learned ways to check for understanding and monitor student learning so that students can make their thinking visible. And we have committed to putting structures in place for student discussion. And we did this all with the goal of increasing intellectual engagement of our students. 

We have focused on the social emotional well being of both ourselves and our students by committing to circle work. We have created experiences for students to talk, share and work in teams. We have celebrated them for our values. 

All of this has set us up to hit the ground running in 2018. So as we welcome 2018, we will do just that. 

Below are the updates for the week.  
  1. Interim Assessment Week 2 Jan. 8-12: Our second round of interim assessments will take place next week.
  2. Battle of the Pods: Pod soccer/hula hoop challenge will take place this week. See schedule below. 
    1. 6th Grade: Tuesday, 1st period, East Gym
    2. 7th Grade: Thursday, 1st period, East Gym
    3. 8th Grade: Friday, last period, West Gym  

Enjoy Your Day.

Good Afternoon, BWA Team and Family!

We have just 5 short days standing between us and December break. Think of this as the final sprint to the first of many finish lines. 2017 will soon be behind us and when we return in January we have just a few short months to get our kids prepared for the state exam. I encourage you all to take the time off to rest and recharge for the marathon ahead.  Take these final 5 days to end on a positive note. Celebrate all of the amazing work students have accomplished to date. I want to also remind everyone of the importance of working hard until the end. 

Culture Updates
  1. Student circles are officially up and running! This is another forum for students to practice active listening and demonstrate empathy for colleagues. It has been truly inspiring to see how open, honest, and thoughtful some of our students who struggle academically can be. 
  2. PBIS Celebrations: 
    1. BWA Bucks Donut Raffle Monday Morning: 12 winners will be announced per pod and donuts will be distributed during lunch. 
    2. Class Token Ice Cream Social Wednesday @ 2pm: Classes that have completed token boards will participate in an ice cream social last period in the cafeteria.
  3. Talent Show!: This Friday we will have our annual Talent Show. Our students and staff have been working hard, practicing for this event. It is sure to be a wonderful celebration. Curtains go up at 11:30am. 
  4. Friday Extended Recess: Weather permitting, we will have an extended recess on Friday this week
Have a wonderful Sunday. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions at all.

Good Afternoon BWA Team & Family!

I hope you all got a chance to enjoy the first snow of the season! We have just 10 short days standing between us and December break. This Friday, I hope you will all join us as we celebrate together at our Talent Show. 

On Friday we had our first student of the month breakfast, which was a huge hit. We celebrated accomplishments with students and families over some delicious breakfast. We have finished our battle of the pods competition this month and I want to commend our students for exhibiting teamwork and support. The monthly grade-wide activities have created a sense of pride and camaraderie in our students. It is great to see them supporting one another.

Below are the updates for the week.  
  1. Progress Reports distributed Friday 12/15: Progress reports will be distributed this Friday
  2. 7th Grade College Access for All: We are fortunate to be a part of the citywide College Access for All Initiative that is targeted for 7th graders. Over the course of the year they will participate in workshops and college trips to get them thinking about their future. 
  3. Student Circles begin this week!: Thank you all for submitting names for circles. They will begin Tuesday and will take place from 2-2:40 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (one grade per day). 
  4. Door Decorating Contest: Join the PBIS team and get in the holiday spirit in by participating in the door decorating contest! Please see Ms. Carbon if you have any questions. Judging will take place on December 20th!
  5. There will be Vision Testing by The Childsight Program Hellen Keller International for all students on Thursday. A schedule will go out this week indicating the time we are requesting that you bring your class to the auditorium. 
  6. We are welcoming another social worker who will be working with our students Monday through Thursday. Her name is Ms. Claudia Wald and I will be sure to introduce you all. For the next two weeks she will be observing in classrooms, joining us at lunch and just getting to know our students.
