Welcome to Team Bradbury!


Spring Reading and Blogging.

In March and April, our students have been reading and blogging. 
Students have created web pages about their free choice reading books to discuss and share their ideas and opinions about their free choice reading books.

This has been a fun project and allowed students to reflect upon the elements of literature and to explore the genre of writing a review.

Check in with your teen to see their web site!

News....

Spring has finally sprung!

Happy May! It is hard to believe that the school year is approaching the last long stretch of the year. It is very important for students to stay on top of their work and finish the year demonstrating their knowledge in each class. 

The last trimester is filled with different testing: 
The MEA Reading, Math, Science, and Essay tests as well as the last STAR reading, math, and science tests.  We have finished the MEA reading and math tests and have the essay test left to go. Bradbury students have come ready and prepared for the tests and worked hard to do their best.

Even with all of the state tests, students are continuing to learn about American history, chemistry, math concepts, and reading and writing skills.

Extra Curricular activities are going strong as well. Many of our team students are involved with the Achieve Buddy program, helping other students in our school.  Drama club has started production of their new play and many of our students are involved in band or chorus.  Spring sports have started and many of our students are active with softball, baseball, and track. Nice work Team!

Bradbury Service Learning Project

This semester students will be brainstorming and creating ways to give back to our community. Students are designing service projects to help others in our community. 

These projects involve not only a service to others, but demonstrate the research and planing skills needed to create and complete their projects.

We will be inviting parents to our Service Learning Exhibits on June 9th.

Crash Course In Chemistry: Connecting Science Fact with Digital Learning.
One of the great projects students have completed this winter is their Element Crash Course Video. Student worked with team mates to create a two minute crash course to explain the basic information about an element from the periodic table. 
The videos were great! Ask your teen about their project!

Two Ways to Help Your Middle Schooler be successful at school:
1. Attendance is critical - students who miss class time miss the opportunity to gain information, complete assignments, and participate in class discussions.

2. Help your teen be prepared and ready to learn - enough sleep, bag ready, lap top charged, and asking about their learning.

Your interest matters to your teen!
