ENRICHMENT

Wide Open School, from Commonsense Media, offers amazingly curated, high-quality activities for furthering Home Learning.

Humanities

We highly recommend screen-free reading as enrichment. 

Improve non-fiction Lexile levels and reading comprehension through these challenging passages and response activities.

Students find listening comprehension most challenging frequently in our assessments. Extra practice with Listenwise is a great way to improve listening skills.

 

Excellent for writing and grammar development.

Dear BIS Families,

As the school year is winding down, there are a few key announcements for the last week that I would like to share.

1.  Yearbooks

Our Yearbooks are set to arrive on time!  Here is the SCHEDULE for next week yearbook pick-up:  

  • 8TH GRADERS- Tuesday June 16th 9:00-12:00.   (Drive-up and from window, sign-off to have received their book and the same for every grade.
  • 7TH GRADERS- Wednesday June 17th 9:00-12:00
  • 6TH GRADERS- Thursday June 18th 9:00-12:00

2.  PE Lockers

Here are the times when families can access PE lockers:

  • Thurs/Fri June 11/12 from 11-1pm
  • Tues June 16th 9-12pm: 8th grade (same as yearbook pickup)
  • Weds June 17th 9-12pm: 7th grade (same as yearbook pickup)
  • Thurs June 18 9-12pm: 6th grade (same as yearbook pickup)

3.  Flipgrid Graduation Celebration

A huge thank you to Jessica Yen, Suzanne Felipe, Laura Mondfrans and Tara Galvez for organizing and creating our Flipgrid Graduation for our 8th graders.  Please view this flyer BIS 2020 Promotion Invitation (2) (1) (1).pdf for more information.  Thank you as well to all of the parent volunteers who helped make this a reality!  We are so sad to say goodbye to this amazing 8th grade group!!  They've been a phenomenal group of students throughout their time here at BIS and we are grateful to them for their leadership!  

4.  8th Grade Algebra

Please note that the grade level curriculum for 8th grade is Math 8.  Families opting into Algebra, a 9th grade curriculum, must sign and return this waiver Algebra Parent Wavier Form .pdf  Please read it carefully.  Students who completed Math 7/8 as 7th Graders will be automatically placed into Algebra.  It is our recommendation that all students currently in Math 7 move into Math 8; however, we understand that some families on their own have enrolled their children in additional math classes and would like the option to take Algebra in 8th grade.  Here is a link to the California Algebra Standards and here is a link to Math 8 Standards.  Movement from Math 7 to Algebra means students skip over the Math 8 curriculum and will be expected to master 9th grade material.  Here as well are the math pathways offered at BHS BHS_19_Math_Pathways.pdf .  Students taking Algebra 1 as Freshman can still take advanced math courses prior to finishing high school.  

Thank you for taking the time to review all of this information.  We know that these past 11 weeks has been a time of new learning and we're grateful to everyone for working in partnership to ensure our students have been supported and cared for.  Please know that we are working on plans for next year that are flexible and able to adjust to whatever circumstances we find ourselves in.  That information will be shared out publicly through our District Office by the end of this month.  

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer - and we all hope to be able to return to campus in the Fall in some capacity!

Sincerely,

Pam Scott, Principal
