On Thursday, October 5th, some of the BCMS Peer to Peer group met with other middle school and high school students around the county to celebrate this year's Kick-Off for our campaign. During the conference, members learned about mental health and illnesses, coping skills, and best practices for communicating with peers. This conference was a collaborative workshop that served as a planning session for students to discuss this year's topics. This year's topics will align with the Primary Assets: Positive Peers, Self-Esteem, and Sense of Purpose. The BCMS's Peer to Peer group is excited for this year's activities at the middle school.
BCMS is proud to announce our first Lancers who Lead recipients for the 2023-2024 school year. The students were nominated by teachers and staff for consistently demonstrating the traits of Leadership, Effort, Attitude and Dependability.
We congratulate these students! Sixth grade: Tucker Rhynard, Raegan Peters and Beau Hanson (not pictured). Seventh grade: Simeon Ludwig, Claire Andrews and Maci Reinke. Eighth grade: Bella Bredt, Hunter Swint and Jorja Holzinger.
Bullock Creek Middle School hosted a Curriculum Night in which parents could come into the school, meet their child's teacher and learn about the great things their students are doing and will continue to do throughout this school year.
Mr. Pfieffer's 6th graders compare distance and time to calculate speed.
BCMS students definitely showed their "Pure Imagination" for our Willy Wonka themed Homecoming spirit week! The kids were excited, creative and most of all...they had a BLAST!
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!
Today the 6th grade celebrated Mr. Laughner's FINAL last day of school as our 6th Grade Math teacher. BCMS staff and students wish Mr. Laughner great thanks for all of his years of wisdom, always taking us on nature walks and his dedication to Bullock Creek Schools.
Thank you, Mr. Laughner! Enjoy your retirement-- you will be missed!
Congratulations to all BCMS 8th grade students on a job well done! Last night these students were honored in a special recognition ceremony for all of their hard during their years at BCMS.

Our 7th grade BCMS Math Lab students created carnival games to explore the difference between theoretical and experimental probability. These students had to construct the games themselves and then fellow BCMS students had the opportunity to actually play the games! The creativity and the brains of these students was amazing to see!

Bullock Creek Middle School’s Peer 2 Peer group celebrated a fantastic year with other Peer 2 Peer members from around the county. Our P2P group spent the day at Dow Diamond enjoying the beautiful weather. Throughout the year, P2P has lead a depression awareness campaign that addresses issues related to depression and mental illness. Our group planned and carried out activities throughout the school year to coincide with monthly themes as a way to convey knowledge to their peers in order to reduce stigma, raise awareness, and encourage help-seeking when needed.
Congratulations to the BCMS Track and Field teams! The boys were crowned TVC champions and the girls finished as the runner up for the second year in a row! Pictured are the meet champions and the new school record holders for the 3200 m relay!

Last week our BCMS 8th graders wrapped up a unit in "Art as Craft." The students tried their hands at needle felting. They designed their own animals or items, dyed their wool, and felted their sculptures. Great job, 8th graders!
Middle School Track and Field is where it's at tonight!
On Wednesday, April 12, Mr. Wauldron's - 1st Hour Project Lead The Way (PLTW) class traveled to Central Michigan University Center for Excellence In STEM Education. In partnership and grant funding from Central Michigan University, this was a pilot program and first time endeavor for BCMS. Students visited the CMU STEM Makerspace Lab for a fun hands-on experience. Students applied what they have learned in class in regards to the design and prototyping process, invention vs innovation, and integration of electronic circuitry and computer science coding. Thank You CMU for a great experience!
Did you know that our eyes work much like a pinhole camera? Light rays funnel into a camera lens in a straight line, projecting an upside down image. But the mirror inside allows us to see things right side up through the viewfinder. In the same way, our eyes actually see the world upside down, but our brain interprets the image right side up! Wild, right?!
After wrapping up their oil pastel assignments today, 8th graders enjoyed a quick game of upside-down-glasses Pictionary to experience this phenomenon in reverse! It's harder than it looks! Happy Spring Break from the BCMS Art room!
BCMS is proud to announce the Lancers who Lead recipients for the month of February! Please congratulate with us: Lia Wenger, Westin Wilkins, Megan Tkaczyk, Bentley Longton, Blake Estabrook, Brooklynn Nietling, Ben Roberson,
Josephine Cabala and Bryanna Herron (*not pictured.)
Congratulations to our 49 middle school students who performed in the Bullock Creek Middle School spring plays Fowl Play and The Hysterical History of the Trojan War. The cast performed in two public performances and one performance for all middle school students. Awesome job!
