12/11 – Students in Grade 8 science learning about cognitive skills, fine motor skills, and gross motor skills required for a variety of challenging activities.  They rotated from station to station playing games and using their minds and hands!

 

12/11 – We had our BCS/BNS Creating Connections through Songwriting and Poetry event this evening, December 11th from 6:00 -8:00 p.m. in the Auditorium.  BCS 6th graders and BNS 5th graders came together for an evening share after a week of songwriting and poetry workshops in  under the direction of Emmy-nominated producer-composer Shevy Smith.  The 6th Grade workshops took place in Social Studies classes.  Shevy returned to BNS / BCS for a fifth year of songwriting and poetry to give voice to Syrian women in refugee camps in Bulgaria.  The women refugees supply the words and Shevy and the children put the words to music.  What a heartfelt and inspiring event, helping us all to learn deeper empathy and caring.
