When middle school teachers asked rising fifth graders what they knew about the middle school, they quickly replied - the work is harder, you dress down one day a week, you have club meetings, you have two specials a day and you get to be car greeters in the mornings!
Middle school teachers work every day to prepare these young people for high school and college. They stress doing homework (homework grades count in middle school), coming to class prepared, being organized and developing good study skills.
The transition from elementary to middle school is a smooth one for most parents and students at BSS and the middle school teachers are looking forward to teaching the upcoming group of 5th graders!
