Hello BBMS Families,
I hope you are staying safe and warm in all this winter weather. It is exciting for students to have early dismissals, late arrivals and snow days, but it can be tough on keeping routines in order. Please continue to stay on top of your student(s) as they head into the 3rd Marking Period. This is an important quarter and we want students to do their very best.
The purpose of this email to highlight some of the amazingly talented staff at BBMS who make a difference everyday. Next week, Feb 4 to 8 is School Counselor Appreciation Week! At BBMS, we are lucky to have Ms. Debbie Germroth and Ms. Meg Savage as our school counselors. They do so many things (often times behind the scenes) to meet with students and support their needs. BBMS relies on their expertise and we can't thank them enough for all their hard work and energy in supporting students and staff everyday. If you have time, please let them know how much they mean to you as well.
Secondly, is there a teacher who you would like to recognize as outstanding? There are many great teachers at BBMS and there is a way to recognize the efforts of a Gifted and Talented Teacher for what they do. We are so lucky to have Ms. Janine Sharbaugh as our Gifted and Talented Teacher who coordinates our school's program while teaching Research and Seminar Classes. We also have many teachers who teach GT level classes in Math, ELA, Social Studies and Science. Please follow this link if you would like to recognize one or more BBMS teachers for this award:
BBMS is a great school in many ways; largely due to the people mentioned above. Thank you for considering recognizing their contributions to our school.
