Penny Wars, our in school competition to raise money to help veterans, is over. Advisory classes competed to raise money which will then be donated to Honor Flight. It was a furious battle this year but victors did emerge. Congratulations to Mrs. Mackey (6th), Mrs. Stolley (7th), and Mrs. Johnson (8th) for winning this year’s competition. The total raised was $1461.44! Awesome job students.
We are already done with first quarter. Please check student grades to make sure they are on track to receive the required credits for the year. Thanks to those who came for parent-teacher conferences.
The first annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner will be Sunday, November 22nd from 5-7pm in the BCMS cafeteria! This is being hosted by the Boundary County Ministerial Association and is free to all. They are looking for help for this event. If you can help by providing food for this event then please stop by our school office to sign up or you can contact Brent Dehlbom at 208-946-3419. They also have a facebook event posting under First Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner.
Parents, please help us keep the front of our school safe! Buses need to be able to use the front of our school to drop off and pick up students as well as allow students to change buses. This mixed with students leaving and arriving the building can make for a dangerous situation. Please use the north and south parking lots to drop off and pick up your students at the beginning and end of the school day.
Wrestling has started. We only have one home match this year so make sure not to miss it. It is Tuesday, December 1st at 4:30pm. Hope to see you there.
It is starting to get colder as Fall is in full swing and winter is starting to arrive. Please remember we allow students to go outside for lunch every day (barring extreme cold) and they need to be responsible with the clothing they wear.
Red Ribbon Week was very busy. Students decorated doors to state why they will stay drug free. Of course, we turned this into a competition and the winners were: Johnson’s 8th grade advisory class, Kerttu’s 7th grade advisory, and Sanders’ 6th grade advisory. Congratulations to all those who pledge to be drug free!
Our Responsible students and staff of the month are: Sierra Petesch (6th), Emma Pinkerton (7th), Michael Youngwirth (8th), and Kelly Hinthorn (staff). Please tell them congratulations for being responsible. Next month we will focus on Citizenship.
Yearbooks/Annuals are on sale now. The yearbook/annual ordering system will be a bit different this year due to financial concerns. Only pre-sold books will be ordered this year meaning no extra yearbooks/annuals will be available to buy after the ordering deadline. Please make sure you order your yearbook/annual before the deadline if you want one this year.

Cyberbullying: New Problems, New Tactics
Bullying is an old problem that remains difficult to bring under control, in part because technology offers new ways for kids to pick on one another. Indeed, cyberbullying can extend the reach and power of some of the worst bullies, subjecting kids to taunts from beyond their own schools and neighborhoods.
