November Classified Employee of the Month – Charles Meyers
Boundary County Middle School is proud to announce Charles Meyers as the district’s Classified Employee of the Month. Charles tries hard to bring out the best in his students, always keeps a positive attitude, and has more patience than most people have.
Charles is very good at what he does. As a paraprofessional working with special needs and disabled students, he tries to integrate students into the general education schedule as much as possible. He attempts to get the most education for his students as he can and can often be heard asking what he can do for his student to perform better and get more out of a class. He has taken a few students who have been especially reluctant in PE and created an atmosphere where those students are now dressing down daily and participating regularly in the class. We believe Charles is motivating to students and creates a positive atmosphere for them to succeed.
Charles is also a very positive person. You will often find him laughing and smiling at what is occurring around him. He is able to turn any event into a positive or see the positive in it. Positivity is a quality people enjoy being around and therefore people enjoy being around Charles. This quality also allows Charles to see the best in whatever situation is before him and enjoy his job.
Charles is a very patient person. His position demands this feature but Charles is exceptional at caring and waiting for things to become as he would want them to be. This patience allows him to take some time to think about what needs to be done while also not getting upset at things he cannot control or have not materialized yet.
Charles is a critical component of our team at BCMS. Students and staff are extremely happy to have Charles’ support and qualities. We are happy and better with Charles on our side.

Our Citizen of the Month results for November are in. November’s trait was Citizenship. Please congratulate Dillon Mai (6th), Jenny Owens (7th), Kami Bremer (8th), and Jerry Jiminez (staff). Next month (December) is Generosity.
Our students are still up to good. They have decorated our lobby with holiday spirit and are now engaging in the 12 days of gratitude. Each day challenges students to do something nice to others and show gratitude. Some examples are giving somebody random a nice note and smile at a person you don’t know. They are also collecting Turkeys and Hams for needy families in the community through a competition with the high school (through Dec. 22). They are also creating and then giving to a lucky person “Jolly Jars” from Dec. 19-22. These jars are filled with random goodness and students can donate a quarter for a chance to win one or more of the jars.
Josh Sundquist recently spoke to our students about overcoming obstacles and making the best out of everything. Even negative experiences can lead to positive outcomes. Students enjoyed the speaker and the message even though we had to walk to the high school last minute to catch his speech.
Debate and Leadership students were also able to recently listen to another speaker, A’ric Jackson. I’m still waiting to hear how it went for them.
Like Chess? So do we. We are currently hosting a lunchtime chess tournament. It is great to see students competing during lunch to see who reigns supreme.
BCMS practiced having a lockdown recently. Students and staff did an excellent job of following procedures and we were able to have an outside observer give tips to improving our safety at the building. If you have any questions about safety here at BCMS please call.
Wear a Hat day fundraiser will be on Thursday, December 8th. Students can pay $1 to get a stamp to wear a hat at school in order to raise money for holiday turkeys and hams. I bet we see some interesting hats….
Mid-term for second quarter is Thursday, December 8th. Grades will be sent home with students on Thursday, December 15th.
Wrestling districts are this Thursday, December 8th in Kellogg. Our wrestlers have had a fantastic season and I would not be surprised if our athletes win the entire meet.
BCMS will host a FIRST Lego League qualifying tournament on Saturday, December 10th from 7:30-4:30. The community is welcome to stop by and watch this great event where students compete by attempting to get a Lego Robot to perform various tasks.
Basketball will begin Monday, December 12th. All students interested in trying out for one of our basketball teams will need to have their paperwork in and begin practice/tryouts on this day.
Our Bands will be performing their Holiday Concert on Monday, December 12th at Becker Auditorium beginning at 7:00pm. Our students always appreciate when the community supports their hard work and efforts. The music will be festive and Mrs. Hanna always ensures the students put on a great show. You won’t want to miss it.
Our Choirs will have their Holiday show on Thursday, December 15th at Becker Auditorium beginning at 7pm. Our students have been practicing and preparing for some time for this holiday themed concert. Be sure to come early to guarantee a seat as Mr. Carpenter generally has his students singing joyfully.
BCMS will be celebrating the holiday season on Thursday, December 22nd during school hours. We will have a modified schedule and activities including crafts and other things to send students away for winter break. This will also be ugly sweater day!
Basketball pictures will be on Monday, January 9th.

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.
