Liberty Paper Essay Contest Winners

On May 24th, forty-one students headed to Liberty Paper International to tour the facility, learn about Liberty's mission, enjoy pop & pizza, and see who the winners were in the Environmental Book Challenge Essay Contest.  This was an optional contest and these forty-one students rose to the challenge!

Runners up were Nolan J. and Natalie P., who were awarded $25 Target gift cards.  Grand prize winner was Noah H., who was awarded a $50 Target card.

How fun!

Thank you to Tim Swanson, Kami Garding, and ALL the wonderful folks at Liberty who take care of our sixth graders like this every year.  We are blessed!



Big Winners with the Big Fish Book Challenge

posted May 23, 2019, 7:34 AM by Holly Wieber


On May 22nd, we celebrated the end of the 6th grade Big Fish Book Challenge.

All year, students have been reading books to work up through the "levels" of fish in our challenge.  Students choose their own books, and complete "book talks" to stay accountable for their pages.

700 pages- Sunfish
1500 pages- Perch
3000 pages- Walleye
4500 pages- Northern
6000+ pages- Sturgeon

The top readers (Northern and above) all earned a free book or poster, and the top readers in each class were awarded trophies.  On top of that, we were lucky enough to give away two bicycles (thanks SO much to Tom Wenner with Horace Mann!!!) to Maria M and Riley W.

How fun!

Environmental Books & Liberty Paper

posted May 23, 2019, 7:14 AM by Holly Wieber

Our sixth graders would like to thank Liberty Paper, International (LPI) for once again putting on a great Environmental Book Challenge for our sixth graders this year.  Students were challenged to read fiction and nonfiction books dealing with conservation, recycling, and environmental issues in the months of March & April, and earned a number of incentives for participating.

Students who read one book were eligible for a class pizza party and an LPI pencil and a prize drawing entry.

Students who read two books earned that, plus a T-shirt and three prize tickets.

Students who completed the essay portion of the contest also earned a field trip to LPI on May 24th, as well as five prize tickets.

Right after Earth Day, representatives from LPI visited us to give away 45 treat bags, gift cards to Target, as well as a camping package!

On May 22nd, LPT treated eight of our 6th grade homerooms to a pizza party for having 100% class participation.

We feel very blessed that Liberty (especially Tim Swanson & Kami Garding, who worked hard on the challenge for us this year) has developed this awesome tradition with our sixth graders!

 

Thank you PTSA!

Our VERY GENEROUS PTSA sponsored a Read-a-Thon for our students in February in conjunction with "I Love to Read Month" and our BMS students had GREAT participation!  Students recorded their reading minutes throughout the month, and our top 23 were awarded prizes on March 22nd.  On that day, the top homerooms from 6th and 7th grade (Ms. Geier's and Ms. Hanson's) were also treated to donuts and juice.  We are so lucky to have a PTSA that is SO supportive of literacy and our students!
