BCMS Gift Card Blitz needs your help!

BCMS Gift Card Blitz is back again!

Once again this year, Bliss Carman is launching our annual “Gift Card Blitz”, our 8th year running! This initiative directly supports our students by providing an extra helping hand to those families who struggle to make ends meet, especially during the holiday season. Through the continued generosity of our school community, we are able to support more and more families with each passing year. 

This year, our “Blitz” runs from November 26th to December 7th. During that time, students and families can bring in gift cards to the school, where they will be collected and distributed to BCMS families in need in December.  Also, if you do not have an opportunity to purchase a gift card but would still like to make a contribution, we will gladly accept financial donations to purchase a gift card on your behalf. 

Should finances be unusually tight this holiday season, and your family could benefit from receipt of gift cards, please contact the school’s administration or guidance department by December 7th. In the event of high demand, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be filled. 

Reinforcing charitable values, community engagement showing empathy towards others demonstrates to students that they are part of a larger community.  As members of that community, they have the responsibility to seek out opportunities to help those in need.  This is one such way that students can feel good about helping others in their own school. 

We thank you very much for your support with this endeavor and wish you all a happy holiday season.

AIDS NB presenting to grade 8 students

On Thursday and Friday of this week, our grade 8 health classes will be participating in a in-class workshop ​with an AIDS NB educator.  The main theme of this presentation is blood born infections, discussing topics such as preventing HIV, Hepatitis C, and STI's, as well as safe tattoos and piercings.  This presentation is always well received and appreciated by our students, and  compliments outcomes in the Human Growth and Development strand in the Health curriculum.

Should you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding this presentation, please reach out to the guidance counselor: julie.legresley@nbed.nb.ca.

BCMS Remembrance Day Ceremony needs YOU!

Hello BCMS Families,

As we prepare for our annual Remembrance Day Ceremony, we would like to acknowledge the many family members of our students who serve in uniform.  While typically we think of veterans, we would also like to recognize members of our Eagle families who serve, not only in the military but, as firefighters, EMTs, policing, etc. 


If interested, you can participate by sending along a digital image of yourself in uniform (perhaps in a parade, an awards ceremony, returning home at an airport, etc).  We will be using these images in a slideshow that will be shown at our Remembrance Day Ceremony on November 8th. 


Please email your photos to Lisanne.ells@nbed.nb.ca  by November 1st, 2018.  These photos will be used only for the slideshow for this event and be deleted immediately afterwards.

Wednesday February 28th is Pink Shirt Day!
BCMS is gearing up for this year’s Pink Shirt Day activities!
This Wednesday, February 28th, we will be asking BCMS staff and students not only wear pink but to get caught doing random acts of kindness. 
Students will have permission that day to be using their phones to catch themselves and others performing random acts of kindness, and we are asking that they post them to the BCMS twitter feed-- @BCMSEagles using the hashtags #BCMSeagles #beccatoldmeto #bcmseaglesRAK #niceneedsnofilter as well as any others they know of that would be fitting. 
We are doing this to not only mark the anti-bullying day, but also to celebrate the life of Becca Schofield who recently passed away at the age of 18.  She was the driving force behind the #beccatoldmeto campaign that has spread kindness around the world.  You may find more information by following this link: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/becca-schofield-beccatoldmetoo-has-died-1.4541134
Thank you for your support!  Let’s stand up to bullying and spread some kindness.
