Wizards present Mindfulness to the staff of CBMS!

Today 12 of our students stood up in front of the faculty and presented our team's experience with Mindfulness. I was extremely proud of them for sharing their insights! They were honest and articulate when speaking. Plus, they were totally willing to do some extra work beforehand. They met during lunch/study hall several times in order to prepare.
Student leadership and student voice is such an important element to the middle school experience and I was so impressed with the number of students who wanted to help me with this presentation. Thanks to everyone! You did an AMAZING job!!!

The teachers give it a try!

Friday Folders in Math

With the hopes of increasing your understanding of what your child is learning and how they are progressing in math, Ms. Anderman & Ms. Clymer are going to try Friday folders.  Each Friday, your child will summarize something they learned in math on a reflection sheet. You will have the opportunity to see their classwork from the previous week along with their reflection.  Each weekend, please review the folder with your student, sign the reflection sheet and leave all work in the folder. You have the opportunity to write comments or questions at the bottom of the reflection sheet.
