Regular school attendance is vitally important to academic and future success. Once again, a number of Becker Middle School students achieved perfect attendance during the 2016-17 school year.  The following students and their families are commended for accomplishing this goal.

Grade 6                                    Grade 7
Emilie Drescher                       Za'nya Baker
Grace Hilden                           Kabir Bhakta
Owen Kolbinger                      Darren Vetsch
Mitchel Miner                    
Sydney Rathbun                      Grade 8
Madison Ringwelski                 Katelynn Fisher
Kevin Vogl                                Lukas Karel  
Kyle Vogl                                  Grace Oliver
                                                 Laura Schwintek

In addition, Kabir Bhakta (7th) and Katelynn ​Fisher (8th) have had perfect attendance at BMS for the past two years and Lukas Karel (8th) has had perfect attendance all three years of middle school. Congratulations on a job well done, students! 





Middle School Garden - Fibonacci Sequance

posted Jun 1, 2017, 12:27 PM by Ryan Cox   [ updated Jun 1, 2017, 12:30 PM ]

Mrs. Brant's 7th grade science students have been busy finishing up their new planted garden at the Middle School. The class received a grant from the University of MN to fund the project.

The main garden is designed based on the Fibonacci sequence, and within each garden we have plants that share the pattern. The kids made slides of the Fibonacci pattern, and a small group worked on making slides for each type of plant in the garden. 
Nice job 7th graders!

Liberty Paper Environmental Book Challenge

posted Apr 24, 2017, 10:04 AM by Holly Wieber

Once again, Becker Middle School would like to thank LPI (Liberty Paper) for their generosity in sponsoring the 6th grade Environmental Reading Challenge.  This year, we had terrific participation in the challenge and our kids earned some wonderful incentives (check out the cool t-shirts in the pics below!)



Forty students earned Liberty Prize bags, four students earned $25 Target gift cards, two students earned $50 Target gift cards, and our grand prize winner, Faith S., earned a camping package that included a tent, air mattress and sleeping bag!

Six of our classes will also be earning a pizza party in May because 100% of the members read at least one book.



About 110 of our students earned awesome Liberty t-shirts.

Thirty-three students extended the challenge and wrote an essay, which has earned them a field trip (and more prizes!) to LPI in May.

We are so thankful that LPI has partnered with our sixth grade for this challenge for so many years and we love that it allows us a chance to read some great literature about our environment and what we can do to keep it strong.
