Mrs. Hedlund's kindergarten students have focused on finding insects in different habitats the last two weeks and then finished by playing a game to build an insect with all of it's parts we learned about.
Mrs. Hedlund's kindergarten students at BCEL love to build and construct! She definitely has a group of little engineers!!
Next week is our homecoming!
BCEL is excited for all the spirit days, the parade, and the game!
Our spirit week will conclude with a parade and football game on Friday, September 29th. BCEL is not walking in the parade but we encourage you all to find a spot along Stewart Rd or at the High School to watch all the attractions.
We are looking forward to a fun week.
Creek wins! Congratulations to the 7th and 8th grade BCMS girls basketball teams. Both teams were victorious over Birch Run tonight.
BCEL has started off the 23/24 school year with a bang! We are learning so many new things and getting settled in! We have explored together out in nature, begun connecting with each other and forming new friendships, learned new rules, expectations, and procedures, and started to learn how to function as a group here at school.
This is going to be an amazing year of growth for everyone!
Mrs. Carey's class practiced their investigative skills last week by using spoons for digging, color swatches to compare items found in nature, and magnifying lenses. It was a great opportunity to not only learn procedures for investigating, but for working with others and using descriptive language.
Bullock Creek honored our veterans last night during the home Varsity Football game against Michigan Lutheran Seminary.. 21 gun salute, taps, National Anthem and a 28-0 victory....It was a great evening!
Ms. Terrill's class at BCEL investigated parts of a plant by engaging in activities about sunflowers. They pulled out a gigantic sunflower so they could see and touch the roots, stem, leaves, flowers and seeds.
BCEL students are being encouraged to read read read!!! Students can send in names of books they read/ have read to them and have that title added to our caterpillar! We can't wait to watch Carl the Caterpillar grow!
Floyd Elementary had the pleasure of hosting Leadership Midland today. The group was able to take a tour and learn about Bullock Creek's Nature Program!
Thank you Leadership Midland!
We've made so many discoveries and connections to nature in our first couple weeks of school.
Our students at Floyd love the sidewalk activities painted by Leadership Midland class of 23 and our parent volunteer Amy Mudd.
To celebrate making it through their first week of middle school, Mrs. Johnson’s 6th grade Social Studies classes learned how to play the board game Mancala! Versions of the game Mancala date back past the 3rd century and evidence suggests it originated in Ancient Egypt. Mancala is amongst the oldest known games to still be widely played today!
BCEL Principal, Mrs. Bredt read to several classrooms today. The message: "Don't be afraid to be yourself, you are unique!"
One of the many wonderful things our elementary students get to do is make connections with nature at school everyday. BCEL and Floyd students were excited to experience this on the first day of the 2023/2024 school year.
Thank you to all of the community and staff that helped with "Stuff the Bus" for the 2023-24 year.
Nature Coach, Tina Pretzer led a group of elementary teachers through a picnic conversation around Place Based Education.
