Families are encouraged to take advantage of the information and resources available on the Florida Standards Assessments portal www.FSAssessments.org and the FDOE website www.fldoe.org. More resources will be made available throughout the 2014–2015 school year, so parents and students should check these websites regularly for updates.
Parents can promote student success by staying involved in their child’s education, offering positive support and feedback and encouraging them to relax and do their very best. By staying connected with their student’s school and teachers and taking advantage of online resources, such as school websites and portals, parents can stay informed and be best equipped to meet the needs of their students at home.

The American Cancer Society presents Relay for Life 2015. BCMS has a team to help raise funds for this event on Saturday, April 18th, from noon until midnight. Various groups or teams will be selling Suns & Moons during lunches to honor or remember loved ones for $1. The stars & moons will be displayed in the cafeteria window. If students just want to support and do not have a loved one to honor or remember they can purchase a foot print with their name to say they supported the walk. Luminaries will also be available for $5 and they will be able to decorate them at the table during lunch & these will be put out during the luminary ceremony at the event. If you want to support the BCMS team with a general donation you can go to: http://www.relayforlife.org/bakerfl, click on teams, then scroll down to our team and click. Help us reach our $1,000 goal for a cure for cancer!!!
Book Giveaway 1/1/15 - 3/31/15
As you probably know, our school is participating in the Tyson Project A+ Program, a fund-raising program sponsored by Tyson Foods. By collecting labels from participating Tyson products, we can raise up to $12,000 for our school this year! That money can go toward supplies, building improvements, school programs or anything else we choose.
And now there’s an extra incentive to participate! For each 100 labels submitted between 1/1/15 and 3/31/15 our school will receive 10 free Scholastic books. That’s in addition to the 24 cents in cash we already receive for each label!
This year, on Wednesdays, we have continued our career planning work with the 8th graders from last year at the high school. We build on what we explored in 8th grade, but we go more in depth.
Eighth graders explore general information to cover the basics such as options other than just four years of college. We explore different careers based on their likes and dislikes, goal setting, discuss certificates and technical schools, two-year and four-year degrees, budgeting money, and outlook of careers. At the end of the year we talk about the requirements of a high school diploma, Bright Futures Scholar, Medallion, and Gold Seal. We also go over vocational classes and general information, focusing on options they may not know about.
In 9th grade, we revisit our 8th grade goals and set new goals for 9th grade, revisit interests and explore careers on new interests, requirements of high school and begin planning all four years of high school with a career in mind. We take a closer look at Bright Futures requirements, begin exploring colleges and tech schools, and begin looking at specific programs.
This year is definitely going smoother as students realize I will see them again, and career planning is important for us to continue this work.
Even with Career Planning required by law, I truly believe we are impacting students' lives, their future, and our community. Think of the changes in our community as we encourage and empower students to reach further!
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
For any student who may want to try out for a sports team please remember that in order to be eligible to participate you must maintain a 2.0 GPA AND have an FHSAA Athletic Physical packet completed and turned in to Ms. Cassidy prior to tryouts. This packet can either be picked up from the front office or can be printed from the school website.
If you print the athletic packet from the website ("Printable Forms" link in the left navigation panel) please be sure to download ALL pages and have it completed including being notarized before returning it to school.
Thank you for all of your support to BCMS and the athletic programs,
Anne Cassidy, BCMS Athletic Director
