Grade 9 students received their immunization consent form from Public Health this week. These consent forms need to be signed by a parent or guardian and returned to the Homeroom teacher by Thursday, October 1st. Forms need to be returned even if consent is not given for the immunization.

The immunization clinic is for a standard vaccine administered to grade 9 students to immunize against meningococcal and varicella diseases. The clinic will be held in November at BMHS. The date is yet to be determined by Public Health.

Reminder: Picture day will be taking place Thursday, September 24th for Group A and Friday, September 25th for Group B. If parents or guardians wish to order pictures, please refer to the brochure sent home from the company LIFETOUCH.

Please take the time to verify the information on the green form sent home for student demographics and medical information. Return this as soon as possible to the homeroom teacher to ensure we have accurate information in case of an emergency.

Talk Mail 21st September, 2020 - Laptop Subsidy Program

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have received the first shipment of laptop ordered through the government subsidy program. We are starting to distribute laptops at the end of the day to the group B students. Tomorrow we will distribute the laptops to the group A students.

We recommend that the students open the box once they get home and keep the box for warranty reasons, if they encounter a problem with the laptop.

·         Once the student has received a new computer, it is considered their property. If they are having an issue with their device, they can request a loaner device, but the school is not responsible for fixing their broken computer. This is a conversation between the student and the vendor (IMP Solutions).

·         Students can call 1-800-387-5757 to speak with the vendor directly or through website https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-ca/

We appreciate your cooperation,

 

BMHS

We want to thank all of our students and parents/guardians for a very successful first week of school.  The staggered start-up was very helpful in allowing students time to understand our operational plan and ease their way back into a school setting.  The students are being very respectful of our operational plan and the guidelines we must follow from Public Health.   Our priority is the safety of everyone in the building.

Next week

We will begin our alternating Group A and Group B days.

Groups will alternate every other day from there on.   Refer to the calendar on our BMHS website.

Students are expected to engage in their learning on their ‘home learning days” according to the plan each teacher has in place.   Students were all provided with their network information containing Login and Password information given to them on an ID card.   They must not share this information with others, and they are to keep this information in a safe place. 

Cafeteria services for food purchases will begin on September 14th.   Please remember, there are no microwaves available to heat up lunches this year.

We will be conducting our mandatory 3 fire drills and reviewing our emergency procedures.

Only buses are allowed to enter the driveway at the front of the building. 

 

Forms and Fees

All students received a green profile sheet to be verified and signed by parents/guardians for important contact and medical information in case of an emergency.  Please make sure this information is accurate, signed and returned to the student’s Homeroom teacher next week.

School cash online is where student fees can be paid and our regular start up information forms can be signed.  Please review these forms as soon as possible.  Student fees are $30 and grade 9 students have an additional fee of $5 for their lock.

It is impossible for teachers to receive all the work in the last week of the semester unless the teacher has specifically asked students to return their portfolio or work at the end of the semester. Teachers will reach out to student within the next few business days to let the students know if they are “on-track” to get the credit.

​Grade 12 students registered to take the AP exams in May (or June) must read

through the Testing Guide information in preparation for their exam. The

checklist is also very helpful for exam day. Printed copies of the checklist will

be available at the main door when students come to retrieve their belongings

from school next week. We wish our students the best of luck writing these

exams.

How to Prepare Your Students for

the 2020 AP Exams

Additional information is now available to help you guide your students through the AP® Exam day experience. New Resources • 2020 AP Testing Guide (.pdf/10.9 MB): The guide, designed for educators to walk their students through test day, provides information about:

◦ The AP Exam e-ticket ◦ Five steps to take before test day ◦ Understanding the test day experience ◦ Exam scores, credit, and placement

• 2020 AP Exam Day Checklist (.pdf/526 KB): Teachers should have their students complete this checklist for each exam they take and keep it next to them while testing.

• Explainer Videos: New videos are available to give students quick, easily accessible information about their test day experience, what they need to do to prepare, exam security, and more. Explore the playlist.

Other Reminders • AP Exam Demo (available May 4): AP students should use the clickable exam demo to practice the different ways to submit their exam responses. The demo will help students confirm that their testing device will be able to access and run the online exam. If they can’t access the demo, the final slide of the Testing Guide can help them troubleshoot. The sample content in the demo will be the same for all users and isn't a practice exam. We’ll send educators and students an email to remind them when the demo is available. Please encourage your students to take this important preparation step.

• Online AP Classes and Review Sessions prep week: The week before exams, online AP classes will focus on the exam day experience and sample exam questions.

• Student Outreach:

◦ If you have any difficulty reaching your students, use your student roster in My AP to access email addresses and phone numbers. ◦ If any of your students are having difficulty receiving College Board emails, walk them through the steps on the "Confirm your email address" page​

Talk Mail - April 5th - Learning Oppurtunities

Good evening, by now you would have read the message from the Minister of Education regarding the Continuity of Learning Plan. We are keeping at the forefront, the reality that New Brunswick is in a state of emergency as a result of a global pandemic, I urge you to keep that reality in mind as we work in these difficult circumstances to educate your child. The announcement of school closure for the remainder of the school year has created a scenario that we have never found ourselves in before. We are doing our best to adapt to this new reality.

Late last week, the BMHS teaching staff and teaching teams had virtual meetings to start working together to offer learning opportunities for our students that we missed so very much. The teachers are eager to get this going, but they will need this week to organize themselves as they are learning in doing things in a very different way. We ask for students, parents and guardians to refrain to communicate directly with teachers as they need this time to prepare the home learning options for students.

This week, starting on Tuesday, all students and/or parents will be called by their homeroom teacher. The purpose of this call is to assess the students’ readiness for learning. Making these contact homes are important to create the best learning plan possible for all Highlanders. We will be starting to send home these learning opportunities after Easter weekend.

We are working closely with Public Health and the District to put a plan in place to allow students to pick up their learning and personal belongings at school.  Please stay tune for more information about this.

In the meantime, I encourage you to visit the “Learning at Home” resource web page created by EECD. You can find the link in the letter that went home on April 2nd or on the district page. https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/education/learning_at_home.html

Stay Safe and Healthy…

ATLANTIC YOUTH CHALLENGE TO PREVENT DRUGGED DRIVING – THE PROGRAM

In Atlantic Canada, the John Howard Societies, RCMP, Université de Moncton, and local high schools are coming together to deliver a Challenge to Youth to Prevent Drugged Driving. Through professionally guided, youth led school campaigns, students will be presented with messages which will enable them to make informed, healthier decisions regarding cannabis use and decrease the problematic behavior of driving impaired.

The evidenced based program design guides students to become advocates for positive change in respect to cannabis use and drugged driving. Students are asked non identifier survey questions, at the beginning and end of the school campaigns, which would indicate if the program positively influenced their decision-making and reduced risk behaviors. Schools whose students led the most informative and creative messaging are provided the opportunity to continue their message through community engagement activities.  Grade 10 students will receive more information about this initiative on Feb. 18th during a short assembly

Course selection process began in Homeroom class today.  Grade 9, 10 and 11 students will have another Homeroom period tomorrow to finish up their selections.  On the BMHS website, parents will be able to view the course selection forms under the title QUICK LINKS (on the right side of the page) and the presentations for each department provided to students last week under the documents tab at the top.  These documents are available if you wish to discuss this with your child prior to the sheet coming home on Friday, February 14th for parental signature.

The green student profile sheets were sent home for updates today.   Please have your child return the verified form as soon as possible to the Homeroom teacher at the school.  It is vital that we have correct information for your child in case of an emergency. 

Grade 10 students will receive more information about the initiative below  on Feb. 18th during a short assembly:

 ATLANTIC YOUTH CHALLENGE TO PREVENT DRUGGED DRIVING – THE PROGRAM

In Atlantic Canada, the John Howard Societies, RCMP, Université de Moncton, and local high schools are coming together to deliver a Challenge to Youth to Prevent Drugged Driving. Through professionally guided, youth led school campaigns, students will be presented with messages which will enable them to make informed, healthier decisions regarding cannabis use and decrease the problematic behavior of driving impaired.

The evidenced based program design guides students to become advocates for positive change in respect to cannabis use and drugged driving. Students are asked non identifier survey questions, at the beginning and end of the school campaigns, which would indicate if the program positively influenced their decision-making and reduced risk behaviors. Schools whose students led the most informative and creative messaging are provided the opportunity to continue their message through community engagement activities.    If there are any interested leaders from Grade 10 who would like to support this initiative, please give your name to the main office.

There will be no school on Monday, February 17th due to Family day holiday​

To participate, students complete a daily, short, on-line quiz that will engage them in an active exploration of labour market information, post-secondary education and career options.  Points are earned as participants explore and answer questions correctly.  Schools will increase their rankings based on a per capita score.  Families and teachers can participate as well, helping the school raise funds while discovering useful information and resources.

On September 30th, we'll be participating in Orange Shirt Day. Please see the following explanation for Orange Shirt Day provided to us from the Province:

WHAT? A day to listen, learn, and celebrate Indigenous culture

WHY Orange Shirts? Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in May 2013. It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations. Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

Wearing an orange shirt and promoting the slogan, Every Child Matters, is an affirmation of our commitment to raise awareness of the residential school experience and to ensure that every child matters as we focus on our hope for a better future in which children are empowered to help each other.
