Happy Monday!! Here is your Mustang Morning Show https://youtu.be/pd8xOf3srBA?si=sxYGfHyb0MR0OlH3
Families are invited to come in and visit various grade level pods where we will host reading strategies for all ages with some of your favorite fictional characters, genres, authors, and topics to support academic strategies you can use at home! As you visit the rooms, make sure you check off your "Bingo" sheet so you can then join in on the mini s'mores snack bar in the cafeteria where you and your family can read "s'more" books together and also join in on the book exchange! February 9th from 5pm-730pm

Enjoy walking the illuminated Tom Holden trail at Memorial Park and school forest. Dress for being outside and go at your own pace, once or multiple times. There will also be a fire warming station and hot cocoa (as long as it lasts!). Come and go as you please, but make sure all children are with an adult. Hope to see you there!

Times for each grade level will vary by group. Events include snowshoeing, off trail forest exploration, and hands-on activities with animal mounts, animal track molds and more. **Please send your scientists dressed for the weather for this day - warming breaks will be taken as well** January 19, 2024
BES scientists wrapped up the 2023 year by learning about reindeer, caribou in the United States. They learned many interesting facts such as how they conserve heat, that a week old caribou can outrun an Olympic runner, and one of the first sculptures was of 2 reindeer swimming across a lake. A special thank you the Meier family for letting us borrow this reindeer pelt! BES scientists were amazed at how soft it felt!
We are so excited to have our school represented at the (5th-8th) Regional Math Meet: Southern Lakes Advanced Learners Network at UW-Whitewater! Good luck to those attending on January 16th!
Leadership students at BMS are working on "soft skills" for future careers and life. They are concentrating on teamwork, communication, and listening skills. They were recently challenged with a few tasks as teams: They had to stand on a blanket as a team and flip it over without getting off the blanket and did amazing! They also had to work together to stack cups by using a rubber band with 5 strings tied to it. They could only move the cups using the rubber band. When they put their minds together they are unstoppable. A focus all semester has been serving others. Many of the students helped out at school with events before and after school. They created bowls for our Empty Bowls fundraiser for the food pantry and they came to serve the soup at the event. They also created blankets for Kisses from Keegan & Friends to deliver to Children's Hospital for Christmas. Some students stepped up at home and helped with chores or yard work at home. Their hopes were to give back and make someone's life a little easier.
No School: January 15th
