I had a great visit to Broadview Middle School this week -- really impressed by everything I saw at the school -- welcoming classrooms, engaged students, on-point teaching and learning -- all impressive, inlcuding the facility. I learned about the 6th Grade Academy which will focuus on the growth and development of BMS students and teachers throughout the year, implementing the school's guiding principles of student and teacher leadership, community involvement, social emotional learning/self-efficacy. Last year, students were able to speak with and learn from over twenty-five guest speakers from yhr BMS community. Service learning projects are in the works for this year to build stronger school-community relationships. Did I say, impressive?!
