Congrats to our “Students of the Trimester” for Trimester Three at BMS!

This has been a tough  and challenging trimester, with SO many changes in the way we are learning, but the students chosen as Students of the Trimester have REALLY stepped up to the plate and SOARED during this time.  Teachers who nominated them praised these kids for their living by the 3R’s, but also noted how on top of things they were as they needed to become 100% digital learners in these last two months.

Congrats to sixth graders….

Career Day

Becker Middle School hosted a "career day" on Tuesday, November 26 and we were honored to have a number of folks from our community come in to share information about education, career choices, and the working world.  Students rotated to four different speakers throughout the afternoon and heard from a variety of different professions from the Becker area.  We SO appreciate these people who were willing to share their time and talents with us!

For a complete story on the day, check out this wonderful article in the Becker Citizen from writer Bill Morgan.

Orientation Night!

posted Sep 24, 2019, 8:10 AM by Holly Wieber   [ updated Sep 24, 2019, 8:12 AM ]

Our first BMS orientation night on September 23rd was a great success and we appreciate that so many students and parents were able to attend with us.  Presentations were given in each of the three grade levels, as well as additional presentations with physical education & music, and technology & digital safety.

Parents were able to see how we are working with our students in class, utilizing & leveraging technology to transform learning, and making great use of Google Classroom and Skyward to communicate progress home.

Educating ALL OUR KIDS is a partnership between school & home and we were glad so many folks took time out of busy schedules to make this evening of learning a priority!

If you were unable to attend Orientation Night, all the slideshows of the presentations are available on our middle school web page.  Just scroll ALL the way down on the left hand side of the page to get to the links.

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!
