BMS Girls' Run Club has 155 members this year! The BMS Run Club is a great opportunity for students to participate in physical fitness activities and community service activities while learning about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Through the Run Club, the students have tried Jazzercise and HIT max boot camp. They also participated in a lesson on healthy eating and even held a food drive for Butler Community Meals. Now they are training for the YMCA Turkey Trot Nov 2.

The first grade students at Summit Elementary School are busy with Maker Projects this year! Teachers Cindy Michelini and Julie Peles are integrating the maker movement into ELA class for the first grade students.
This project started with a Big Book titled "Chuck's Truck." The story setting was a farm and the plot was how the farm animals packed into the truck, which (spoiler alert!) eventually broke on the way to town.
Emily Brittain students had a unique opportunity to partner with Senior High School students and learn what it means to be a Golden Tornado!
Senior High School students engaged Emily Brittain students in fun team building activities throughout the day. The activities included a pep assembly and school spirit games as well as a story and a craft.
