Welcome to BCMS!! I will be your child's social studies teacher on the Avalanche team.  Sixth graders state-wide learn about  Minnesota History using the text Northern Lights which is available for students online using Courseweb.

I am also the librarian for BCMS and have three different "classrooms" throughout the day and share my Avalanche classroom with two other teachers.  The best way to reach me is through my email because that will be the same and accessible in every room.  My email is kbauerns@bhmschools.org. My phone number is 763-682-8333, I will check  and return my phone messages after school each day

Students will use their Bison Binder. All students on the Avalanche Team are required to have a Reading Counts book (novel to read) and their planner with passport with them daily.

Please check your child’s grades frequently to help them stay current in their assignments.  I will enter a “0” in only if your child has not turned in an assignment. I will enter "Missing" if your child was absent and still needs to complete the assignment.  I encourage students to carefully check their grade reports and portal so that they are aware of what is missing and to come and see me to get the missing work.

I look forward to having your child in my classroom.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by email or by phone.

Thank you!

Katy Bauernschmitt (Mrs. B)
