Career Day News 
Career Day is being held today, March 17, for all 8th grade students. Students were able to learn more about specific professions that were of interest to them. Law, Police, ICU Nursing, Bookbinding, Energy & Oil Sales, Government Service and New Market Design were a few of the occupations available for students to attend. Bow Memorial would like to thank Bow Rotary, chaired by Dr. Cascadden, for their continued support of this event and community relations in securing the presenters. We appreciate all of the professionals that took the time out of their busy schedules to offer career exploration to our 8th grade students. It was a great day!

8th Grade News
Reminder to all 8th grade parents that Sargent Camp forms and payments are due ASAP.  Forms are due by April 3and money is due by April 15.  Any questions on medical forms should be directed to Mrs George and financial questions to Mrs Arndt.  We need more volunteers!!!  If you are able to spare anytime to come to Sargent Camp to volunteer please contact Mrs Garfield or Mrs Obolewicz.

ImPACT (Concussion Testing)  

The Bow School District is currently implementing a concussion management program and has acquired a software tool called ImPACT (Immediate Post Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing).  ImPACT is a computerized exam utilized in many sports programs to manage concussions by comparing pre and post injury testing.  ImPACT can be used to help diagnose concussions and inform treatment plans for head injuries.

With Spring Sports just around the corner, I will again be offering Tuesday morning ImPACT clinics at BMS with preregistration.  The dates will be March 21 and March 28. The times will be 7:45-8:30 AM before school.  There is also a possible option to set up an appointment during a study hall. The test takes an average of 35-40 minutes.

Student in grades 7-12 who play contact sports are strongly encouraged to have had an ImPACT test within 2 yearsprior to participation in their sport. Any students who wish to have a baseline test, should contact their school nurse to arrange a time during the school year for the test.  

ImPACT, a non-invasive test, is set up in “video-game” type format and takes about 45 minutes to complete.  It tracks information such as memory, reaction time, speed, and concentration.  Bow has contracted with Dr. William Storo, a concussion specialist at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic, to evaluate the Baseline tests for validity and to advise the district on protocols.  The data for the test is housed by ImPACT and can be released to your own health care provider upon request.  If a concussion is suspected, the athlete will be required to re-take the test.  Both the baseline and post-injury test data will be reviewed by Dr. Storo, and tests will be used to inform treatment plans, return to play and “return to learn” school accommodations.

If you have any further questions regarding this program please feel free to contact me at direland@bownet.org

We have had a great spirit week at BMS with a lot of excitement, school pride, and student and adult participation.  A big thank you to all who make this week possible.  During this week we had our annual talent show, here are a couple of quotes from the adults who watched it:  
  • That show was phenomenal from start to finish! What talented kids we have and thank you so much for giving them a venue to share what they can do outside of the academic arena! I couldn't stop smiling and cheering! 
  • Amazing performances!  I could tell a ton of work went into this!  I am so impressed with the wonderful talent we have in our community! 
  • I was AMAZED at the outstanding talent on display............not to mention the courage it took to get up there in front of the entire school to perform.  WOW !!!!!
  • There are schools where talent shows no longer take place, because the students in the audience have become so rude. BMS is a very special place to work because of our students who can be respectful and staff members who ensure that well-deserved courtesy is shown.
  • Truly- the Talent Show is my favorite assembly each year and this was no exception!  Brave kids, great audience, and NOT a "competition". That helps our students be willing to put themselves out there. Thanks to all who make this event happen.
Student talent and hard work was also on display for last Friday's Invention Convention.  For more information about this event including pictures and awards please click here:  http://bms.bownet.org/

Last but not least, we wish Wyatt Barrett the best as he competes for BMS in the State Spelling Bee at Capital Center of the Arts in Concord on Saturday, February 25.

Grades, Quarters, and Semesters (Rotation Quarter 2A, 4B??)
Our use of Infinite Campus (IC) can cause confusion in regards to how our year is broken up and the labels that accompany this.  As of this year we have three distinct time frames that classes are reported out on.  Specials (Art, Music, Health, ...) run a 22 or 23 day rotation, most core classes have grading reported out in two semesters, and some eighth grade math classes are now running on a full year grading period.  To enable this to work in IC we break our year into 8 segments which correlates with our 8 rotations for specials.  These are labeled as 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B, 4A, and 4B.  For classes that have grades reported out for two semesters we use 2B (first semester) and 4B (second semester) and our classes that have full year grading use 4B.
