*CMS is not collecting Chromebooks at the end of school this year from those students who have these devices at home right now.  However, if your Bronco will not be using their Chromebook over the summer or if you simply want to return it for safe keeping here at school so it's ready for them to use next year, we would gladly take it on the drop-off/pick-up day. 

 

Online Instructional Update

Our online instruction will continue through June 9, yet teachers will only be doing virtual instructional sessions through the end of next week.  Teachers will be posting a variety of online assignments on May 29 that will cover the last 7 days of school in June.  Starting on June 1, teachers will still communicate with students through email or Canvas if they have questions.  However, they will be spending the majority of their time completing end of year feedback forms and posting grades.  Teachers will plan one final virtual class meeting to say goodbye for the summer during the week of June 1-5 in hopes to get most, if not all of their students back together one last time for 2019-2020. 

 

Math 1, Math 2, Spanish Grading update

Teachers are placing a 59% in Power School for assignments that have not been completed at this point.  Students have until May 29 to complete all missing assignments in order to improve their grade from where it stood on March 13.  Additionally, students who score below and 80% on an assignment, may redo the assignment to receive up to an 80%.  However, they will need to communicate with their teacher once they redo the assignment as Canvas, School Net, iXL, etc. as these platforms do not prompt the teacher that a student reworked the assignment a second or third time.  Finally, we will be reaching out to each parent after May 29 to see what option you want to choose for your student's S2 (Semester 2) grade.  Remember, students can only improve on what their grade was as of March 13 so doing all of the assignments will be critical if they want that grade to improve.

There are some big changes on the horizon for your Bailey PTSA beginning in the 2020-2021 school year! This summer, the Bailey PTSA will transition to a PTSO (Officially, the Bailey Middle School Parent Teacher Student Organization). This transition will allow the group greater flexibility and autonomy and will ensure that your investments in Bailey stay within our school community. The new Bailey PTSO will continue to support and enhance the educational needs of our students by fostering relationships among the school, parents, teachers, and administration, and will strive to strengthen the educational experience offered at BMS by developing and supporting initiatives, projects, and programs that promote educational and personal development and provide resources to improve our school community.

The Executive Board and committee chairs are always a critical part of the PTSA’s success, and next year that will be truer than ever, as the new PTSO takes root. We need enthusiastic, engaged, and dedicated parents (like you!) to get involved. 

Below you will find details about our upcoming Zoom PTSA General Meeting in June and our transition to a PTSO. You’ll also find information about completing our Officer Nomination Form and next year’s committee chair vacancies. 

Questions? Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Misty Davis at mcdavis74@gmail.com or baileymiddleptsa@gmail.com for more information.

The Bailey PTSA will continue accepting nominations for the 2020-2021 Executive Board until 6 pm on Friday, May 22nd. 

 

We're also still looking for volunteers to chair the following committees:  

 

Back to School Picnic, Bronco Fund, and International Night. 

 

Please email baileymiddleptsa@gmail.com for additional information or if you'd like to make a nomination or volunteer. 

 

Thank you for your ongoing support of our school community. Stay safe, Bronco Families!

 

NOTICE TO ALL BAILEY MIDDLE SCHOOL PTSA MEMBERS


 

On June 8th, the PTSA will hold a virtual general meeting at 6:30pm via Zoom conference call. The purpose of the meeting is to a) provide an update on the 2019/2020 school year, b) vote to confirm the election of 2020/2021 officers and c) vote on the current Board resolution to dissolve the PTSA and replace it with a PTSO. We ask that all available association members and/or interested parties, attend this meeting to help us achieve a quorum and finalize these orders of business.  A Zoom meeting invitation will be distributed one week prior to this meeting.   If you have any questions, please contact baileymiddleptsa@gmail.com.

 

 

BAILEY MIDDLE SCHOOL RESOLUTION RE: PTSA/PTSO

 

The following resolution has been proposed by the PTSA Board for your consideration:

 

Effective June 30, 2020 the PTSA at Bailey Middle School will be dissolved. The former association will be replaced by a Parent, Teacher, Student Organization (PTSO) with an establishment date of July 1, 2020. Under the current PTSA system, we are required to contribute a large portion of the membership fees collected each year to the state parent organization, NCPTA. This change to a PTSO will allow our organization to retain our membership dues and allocate them to initiatives that will benefit our school directly.

2020-21 PTSA/PTSO Officer Nomination Form

The Bailey Middle School PTSA serves as a liaison between the Bailey parents, students, teachers and administration. Through various fundraising initiatives, including the Bronco Fund, the PTSA supports many programs including student incentives, character recognition, the purchase of technology and other supplies, staff appreciation, etc.  We promote communication through our electronic newsletter, The Bronco Times and other means. We have a strong, hardworking, and goal oriented PTSA. 

The summer, Bailey PTSA will transition to a PTSO (Bailey Middle School Parent Teacher Student Organization). This will allow the group greater flexibility and autonomy and will ensure that your investments in Bailey stay within our school community. The new Bailey PTSO will continue to support and enhance the educational needs of our students by fostering relationships among the school, parents, teachers, and administration, and will strive to strengthen the educational experience offered at BMS by developing and supporting initiatives, projects, and programs that promote educational and personal development and provide resources to improve our school community.

 

It is fundamental to the success of our new PTSO organization that we fill next year’s board positions with interested and dedicated parents. There will be some changes to the composition of the board (for example, the VP of Membership position will be replaced by a Member at Large position). In addition, all positions will be able to be shared by two volunteers (i.e. Co-Presidents, Co-Vice Presidents, etc.). All officers will serve for a minimum of one year, with a maximum term of two years in the same position.

 

If you are interested in one of these officer positions or know of someone who is worthy of nomination, please review the information below and submit your nomination to  baileymiddleptsa@gmail.com by 6 pm on Monday, May 18th. 

Thank you,

Virtual Performances

  

Bailey Middle School Presents

Virtual Performances of: 

Push and Pull

by Terry Gabbard

and 

Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare, adapted by Emily Klingman, the Cast, and the Crew to 45 minutes 

 

PUSH AND PULL 

Push and Pull is about Joel Pulley, a struggling comic book artist, that has his narrow world turned upside down when an over-eager stray dog shows up at his door... repeatedly! This excitable canine is unwavering in his pursuit to be Joel's best friend.

 Soon Push pushes Joel's life in fresh directions. Told through dialogue and the comic visual art Joel creates, this one-act is both playful and poignant. It shows us the life of a dog, and the human lives the dog helps to shape into a family.

 

Performances of Push and Pull will be streamed virtually on May 26th and 29th at 7PM (links coming soon!) 

 Push and Pull Trailer Here (video from our last rehearsal at School) 

 

ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA

Antony and Cleopatra is about the famous couple, Mark Antony and Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, their love, and their end. Unlike Romeo and Juliet, war, jealousy, and ambition are the characters' downfall. In our version, they are kids playing out the story of Antony and Cleopatra.  This has allowed our actors and techies to explore Shakespeare in a new way. Gone are the aloof and formal Shakespearean characters and in their place are kids with everyday wants and needs. 

 

Performance of Antony and Cleopatra will be streamed virtually on May 27th and 29th at 7PM

 

 

The links can be found on Bailey Middle School Theatre's Facebook Page, starting Monday, May 25th. The links will only be live at the performance dates and times listed above.
