WELCOME TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL
JUNE 6TH IS THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL
DISMISSED 12:30 PM
Boundary County Middle School is excited to announce that our counselor Ms. Kim Norwood has been chosen as the “Certificated Employee of the Month” for the Boundary County School District.
Ms. Norwood’s value to BCMS can not be overstated. She operates behind the scenes, going about her job of serving the students, staff and parents with little fanfare, but of extreme importance to the success of BCMS. She is always available to students in need of help and works extremely hard to provide our students with the skills necessary to survive the trials and tribulations that come with being an adolescent. Teachers appreciate her willingness to be there when students need assistance in being able to focus on their learning. Parents know they can count on Ms. Norwood to be there to provide support for their children. She truly is an outstanding counselor and a wonderful person who truly is a key contributor to our school.
Everyone at BCMS would like to congratulate Ms. Norwood on her selection and thank her for all she does for our school.
The 2012-2013 school year is quickly drawing to a close. We are now done with the spring ISAT testing and the preliminary results are encouraging. The students have made solid progress and we are encouraged by the results and it was nice to see the effort the students gave to do their best on the tests.
This year’s 8th graders will be visiting the high school on Wednesday, May 8th to tour the school and begin registration for the classes they will be taking as freshmen next year. Move up day for next years 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will be held on the morning of Thursday, May 23rd. Students from the elementary schools who will be attending BCMS next year will have the opportunity to tour the school and meet their teachers. This fall before school starts, we will again be hosting transition day for all 6th graders. The date will be Thursday, August 29th. Last years event proved very helpful to the students and staff, student showed up the first day more comfortable in their environment and ready to learn. Information will be sent out in August as well as articles in the Bonners Ferry Herald.
The end of year schedule is falling in place and we will try to provide and update on some of the events. The last day for students will be June 6th, with school dismissed at 12:30. The annual eighth grade trip to Silverwood will be on Thursday, May 30th. On June 6th, the 6th grade will have their 2nd Annual Play Day, out on the football field. The 7th grade boat building/races will be on Thursday, June 6th.

The ceremony is followed by a dance, which runs until 11:00 PM. We invite you to attend any or all of these exciting events.

Cyberbullying: New Problems, New Tactics
Bullying is an old problem that remains difficult to bring under control, in part because technology offers new ways for kids to pick on one another. Indeed, cyberbullying can extend the reach and power of some of the worst bullies, subjecting kids to taunts from beyond their own schools and neighborhoods.
