Today the 6th grade celebrated Mr. Laughner's FINAL last day of school as our 6th Grade Math teacher. BCMS staff and students wish Mr. Laughner great thanks for all of his years of wisdom, always taking us on nature walks and his dedication to Bullock Creek Schools. Thank you, Mr. Laughner! Enjoy your retirement-- you will be missed!

Our 7th grade BCMS Math Lab students created carnival games to explore the difference between theoretical and experimental probability. These students had to construct the games themselves and then fellow BCMS students had the opportunity to actually play the games! The creativity and the brains of these students was amazing to see!

Bullock Creek Middle School’s Peer 2 Peer group celebrated a fantastic year with other Peer 2 Peer members from around the county. Our P2P group spent the day at Dow Diamond enjoying the beautiful weather. Throughout the year, P2P has lead a depression awareness campaign that addresses issues related to depression and mental illness. Our group planned and carried out activities throughout the school year to coincide with monthly themes as a way to convey knowledge to their peers in order to reduce stigma, raise awareness, and encourage help-seeking when needed.

Last week our BCMS 8th graders wrapped up a unit in "Art as Craft." The students tried their hands at needle felting. They designed their own animals or items, dyed their wool, and felted their sculptures. Great job, 8th graders!

On Wednesday, April 12, Mr. Wauldron's - 1st Hour Project Lead The Way (PLTW) class traveled to Central Michigan University Center for Excellence In STEM Education. In partnership and grant funding from Central Michigan University, this was a pilot program and first time endeavor for BCMS. Students visited the CMU STEM Makerspace Lab for a fun hands-on experience. Students applied what they have learned in class in regards to the design and prototyping process, invention vs innovation, and integration of electronic circuitry and computer science coding. Thank You CMU for a great experience!

Did you know that our eyes work much like a pinhole camera? Light rays funnel into a camera lens in a straight line, projecting an upside down image. But the mirror inside allows us to see things right side up through the viewfinder. In the same way, our eyes actually see the world upside down, but our brain interprets the image right side up! Wild, right?! After wrapping up their oil pastel assignments today, 8th graders enjoyed a quick game of upside-down-glasses Pictionary to experience this phenomenon in reverse! It's harder than it looks! Happy Spring Break from the BCMS Art room!

Students in Mrs. Benson's 7th and 8th grade classes are just wrapping up units in printmaking. 7th grade did linoleum block carvings and 8th grade did pochoir (stencil) prints! It made for some super fun, messy days in art class!

Last week Ms. Buiteweg’s Math Lab students had Cynthia Roberts, the Go Green Sustainability Club Advisor at Dow High, come in and discuss sustainability. This helped students connect the ‘why’ with our recycling program and begin the discussion on how we personally, and as a school, can take steps to be more sustainable. Great conversations were had and ideas are flowing!

Over the last four years Mrs. Johnson has been having friends, family, and students send her 6th grade Social Studies classes postcards from around the world. Today her students used maps of the world and the U.S.A. to plot where all of those postcards have traveled from. To date, the 6th grade has been sent 95 postcards! They have been sent from as far away as The Great Wall of China, New Zealand, and Switzerland, and as near as Frankenmuth, Crystal Mountain, and Capac, Michigan! If you’re traveling near or far and would like to send the 6th graders a postcard, please send them to: Mrs. Johnson’s Class Bullock Creek Middle School 644 S. Badour Rd. Midland, MI 48640

Yesterday Mrs. Johnson’s 6th grade Social Studies classes worked in teams to build a tower out of straws. However, there was a twist - each team had to follow a different set of leadership rules based on different government ideals. The groups represented a monarchy, a republic, democracy, a dictatorship, and anarchy. The class followed up building the towers with discussion on the pros and cons of their restrictions, and reflected on what made them successful or unsuccessful as a result.
