Hello BCS!

 

With spring in full swing, great learning experiences remain in full swing as well!  If you haven’t “liked” Birmingham Covington School on Facebook yet, please do so and check out some pictures from the week. If you’re interested in a quick reference to next school year’s calendar click BPS 2017-2018 School Year.

 

You’ll be receiving the Move Up Day letter and classroom placement information for next school year in the mail within the next few days.  As we prepare for Move Up Day on Monday, June 12 from 9:00-10:30 AM, I wanted to update our community, particularly our next year’s 5/6 families, on staffing for the 5/6 Brown/Marks team for next year.  The Move Up Day letter and mailing had already been processed, so I had to state in the letter “Tammy Brown and TBD (To Be Determined)” under the list of 5/6 teams as I had yet to receive confirmation on staffing on that team.  As of Friday, in working with our Human Resources Department and having met with Andrea Marks, we are excited to confirm Andrea’s return for the fall.  Additionally, Andrea will be attending Move Up Day to reconnect with the 5th graders and meet the new 4th graders coming to the Brown/Marks team in the fall.  Tammy and I are thrilled about Andrea’s return; and so is she!

 

Introducing BCS’s first summer Community Read!  Last week, your youngest child currently in grades 3-7 at BCS should have come home with an envelope (9”x12”) containing a letter, a book, and a bookmark.  Thanks to the BCS PTSA and the Birmingham Education Foundation, we are providing one copy of the book, Save Me a Seat, to each BCS family as a shared reading experience this summer. This envelope contains items that students will be using as a part of their Summer Packet.  All students attending BCS next year, together with their family, are expected to read this book over the summer.  BCS faculty and staff will be reading the book as well!  This book is only one part of the Summer Packet.  The lessons for the complete Summer Packet will be posted at http://bcsonline.info/Students/Summer.html on or after June 16.   Please ask your child about the envelope and remind them to bring it home.  Feel free to contact Ann Truesdell at atruesdell@birmingham.k12.mi.us if your child does not bring it home by next week.  We are so thrilled that our entire BCS community will be engaged together in this Community Read this summer as the themes in the book will be revisited as we launch an exciting 2017-18 year of learning.  Enjoy the book with your family!

 

We’re looking forward to another great week of learning!

 

Wishing you well,

Mark Morawski

Character Connections Word of the week: GRATITUDE

Infuse this word into your conversations and share these quotes with your children as a character education focus.  There will be a new word every two weeks.

·         “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow...Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” – Melody Beattie

·         “I don't have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness - it's right in front of me if I'm paying attention and practicing gratitude.” – Brene Brown

·         “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” – William Arthur Ward

NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING OPPORTUNITY!

This Nationally based training is coming to BBCC current and prospective Youth Action Board students only.  It is recognized for it's youth focus, strategic framework, and leadership development.  The training is provided by CADCA (Community Anti-drug Coalitions of America) - a National Coalition working with our leaders and communities across the country to build drug-free communities.  CADCA is the nation’s leading drug abuse prevention organization that represents over 5,000 community coalitions across the U.S. and over 100 coalitions in twenty countries on five continents.  Like the BBCC, CADCA believes that to create population-level change, we must engage all sectors of a community; especially youth! Their National Youth Leadership Initiative (NYLI) empowers over 1,200 youth yearly across the U.S. and abroad to fight drug use and other problems plaguing their communities. They inspire groups of passionate 13-18-year old's, who are eager to analyze and influence their communities in a positive way, and develop them how to create social change! These “social scientists” are affecting change today!  More information about this training can be found here: http://www.cadca.org/nyli

 

This training is being offered to current and prospective Youth Action Board students.  For your students, please consider those students in graduating 8th grade, that have leadership qualities or potential, and recommend that they take the training.  I have attached an information sheet and registration form.  It's easy for students to get involved in the YAB.  They need to complete the form and then send to me directly.  If they can attend a meeting in June prior to the training that would be great as well.
