BLMS Welcomes our Newest Teacher Mr. Nguyen (6th & 7th Mathematics) - Tuesday, October 28, 2014

GREAT NEWS! We are excited to welcome Mr. Tommy Nguyen as our new 6th and 7th grade mathematics teacher. Mr. Nguyen arrives to us with over four years experience as a middle school teacher at Beverly Vista Middle School, in Beverly Hills Unified School District.  While our hiring process took nearly a month to finish we believe our process will provide the most qualified teacher for our school.

As we move forward with Common Core instruction we recognize the need to reduce class sizes to help with our instructional shift. Over the next few days we will process students to reduce class sizes in our 6th and 7th mathematics classes. Students will be selected randomly and they will receive new schedules for newly balanced classes on Monday.

Below is a chart illustrating the moves we are processing:

New After School Program Offering (Parent Funded Program) - Friday, October 24, 2014

 Dear Parents,

Over the past few years our office has received a few requests for some form of drama club. Although we had some student interest, our ability to find an advisor was difficult.

This program presented by a “pay-to-play” provider, hosts several programs throughout TUSD.  The proposed “Watch Me Act” program sounds promising, and we are providing information for anyone interested. 

If you have additional questions please feel free to call Caryn at 310-532-5992 or check out the web address at watchmeact.com. (Or Click Here for flyer)

Finally, we are trying to gauge our community’s interest  and anticipate program needs.

So, if your child would be interested in participating in this program please reply to this email indicating “We’re interested.” 

Thank you,
LeRoy Jackson
Principal, Bert Lynn Middle School

 

 

 

 

 
LCFF - Presentation via .PDF - Wednesday, October 15, 2014

LCAP: We will be having an LCAP information session on Friday, October 17th in room B2 at 3:30. We are looking to gather information from the community to help us develop our LCAP Plan. LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan) is a three year action plan to address student needs, account for expenditures and support student outcomes and performance.  This plan will identify the priorities of spending and involve all major stakeholders to ensure that are students are College and Career-ready and able to make life choices that have successful, universal outcomes. While Bert Lynn Middle School's LCAP funds are limited to three major catagories, English Language Learners, Students from Low Income Households and Foster Youth.  This will be both an informational and input gathering session. Please join us as we are always looking for ways to build and help children become more successful.
