Fifth Grade Writing Field Trip
Bowdoin Central School 5th graders wrapped up their narrative writing unit with a field trip to Rocky Ridge Farm. Students used the festive and seasonal setting as inspiration to work on their narrative writing. The students then worked in small groups to share their writing with their classmates. Job Well Done 5th graders! You represented BCS well! Also, a Big Bowdoin Bear Thank-you to Rocky Ridge Farm for hosting us and Lt. Scott Stewart and Dep. Mike Shiers from Sagadahoc Sheriff's Department for keeping our kids safe on the roads.
BCS students and staff practiced our first lockdown drill. It was done with the guidance of Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department and other MSAD75 officials here to help with our initiative to ensure student safety under all circumstances. The students and staff represented the community proudly. Students took the drill seriously and helped to present scenarios that tested our teachers’ readiness in an emergency situation. Well Done! We will continue to focus on improving safety in our school. We will be having another drill again in December. Please chat with your student about the importance of these exercises and let us know if they have any concerns.
Thinking Ahead: It is never too early to think about the future! Our children grow up far too quickly. A 529 Plan is a good way to save for future college costs early. For more information about these savings plans please ask us or visit your financial institution. Maine also offers some matching funds through NextGen.
Our Days at BCS
A Great Big Thank-you to the Retired Educators Association for the amazing work creating the Bowdoin Central School Perennial Gardens. Because of their work we are able to commemorate 9/11 and beautify the school.
