Message from Mrs. Pekarek

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe we are already halfway through the school year! We have a busy semester ahead of us as we continue to provide focused instruction in our classrooms and encourage students to take a proactive role in their learning.
We are just about finished with our mid-year checks using our NWEA assessments. I was excited to review our preliminary results to note how our students are growing in their learning. Our goal was to have students reach their individual projected growth from our Fall to Winter Benchmark assessments. I am pleased to inform parents that our students have collectively exceeded our projected growth goals and seem to be making outstanding progress in their learning. We feel much of this can be attributed to our students taking these assessments seriously and being focused on reaching the learning goals they have set for themselves. Teachers at BMS have worked diligently this past semester to not only provide focused instruction in classrooms, but they have also been working with students to develop ownership in their learning and perseverance in their work habits.
I look forward to watching our students continue to grow and learn as we enter this new semester! I expect our students to be checking their grades on a regular basis and check in with their teachers to get extra help during recess, after school, or during Wednesday Tutoring so they maintain good grades and have a strong grasp of the content being taught.

Need Access to Infinite Campus Parent Portal?
Parents may obtain access to check their child’s grades by using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Your child should already have a login and password, but parents can get their own login and password by contacting Lindsay Smith at the district office (719-346-8737).

Come support our athletes and show your Cougar Pride!

What is CREW?

Crew is a 25 minute, daily class period designed to encourage all community members within our school to become Crew, not passengers. The structure of Crew allows for relationship building, academic progress monitoring, goal setting, and character development. Crew allows students to build positive connections with their peers and with their Crew leader. Crew leaders will monitor and support student progress, serve as the student’s advocate in difficult academic and social situations, and act as the primary contact point between parents and the school.
