GREAT JOB, Eagles!
Working together, you brought in over 5000 rolls of toilet paper, and over 3000 sanitary items for FHS's TP the Town's campaing!! That's one fifth of FHS's goal of 25 000 rolls! Thanks to all who participated!
Students have been hearing all about how silenced LGBTQ+ youth have higher rates of mental health issues and can be socially excluded. Students are pledging to be silent at snack today, at lunch and even on social media to bring awareness and support to our LGBTQ+ student community!
Once again this year, BCMS is helping FHS to collect toilet paper and sanitary items to support our local emergency shelters and food banks.
Each class is in a friendly competition to see which class per grade level will be the biggest supplier, and win a pizza party for their efforts!
Our next collection date is Friday Apil 20th, so help us help those in need!
Tomorrow, we are encouraging all students to wear sports team clothing in order to participate in a national day of rememberance for the Humboldt Broncos hockey team that lost 15 of its members last week. Wear a jersey, t-shirt, etc. of any sports team, or wear your BCMS school clothing to show your support to families and a community in mourning.
Please see the links below for more information on the national day of rememberance, as well as the GoFundMe page, should you wish to make a donation to this cause, or any cause of your choice.
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.
Thank you for your support! Let’s stand up to bullying and spread some kindness.

Dear members of the BCMS family,
Quickly approaching the holiday break, we are reminded of the needs of others. As a school, we would like to support families from our BCMS community who struggle to make ends meet – a fact that is especially highlighted at this time of the year.
From November 27th to December 14th, we are having a “Gift Card Blitz”, where we are asking students to bring in gift cards. These will be collected and distributed to BCMS families in need. Gift cards from department stores and grocery stores are preferred due to the large variety of goods available at these types of businesses. 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 the cards on your behalf.
Reinforcing charitable values, encouraging support and participation and 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.
We thank you very much for your support with this endeavor and wish you all a happy holiday season.

Our BCMS Random Acts of Kindness day has been moved to coincide with our Wellness Week next week (February 20-23rd). Along with Wellness activities, student leadership will be promoting kindness, acceptance, and tolerance of others, as well as promoting the importance of dialogue regarding mental health. All members of our BCMS community (students, parents and caretakers, teachers, community members, etc.) are invited to perform kind acts towards others and share their experience by tweeting #BeccaToldMeTo!
