6TH GRADE INTRAMURAL FIELD HOCKEY
Sixth grade intramural field hockey will be starting Tuesday, October 4th. We understand that several sixth grade students were excited to play this Fall, but under league rules they could not because the number of students coming out to play in 7th and 8th grade was so great. We couldn't allow the fall season to go by without offering an opportunity for 6th grade students to get out there and play. We will meet after school on Tuesday and Thursdays. Goggles, shin pads, and a mouth guard are required. We are working on getting some sticks for players to borrow. At times we may join the 7th and 8th grade teams to foster a field hockey community. We will work on basic and advanced skills, but mostly we will get outside and have some fun and fitness together. (Note: 7th and 8th grade students who would like to try a new sport without the pressure of making a team may also join us).
Please contact Ethel Atkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Garden club is where it's at if you enjoy gardening and cooking. Students plant a variety of vegetables throughout the year in the BEMS greenhouse, then work to harvest those vegetables though out the year to make our very own food. If your curious about learning to garden or cook, this is a great club for you! Meetings typically begin in late September and run though the school year.
At this point in the year and due to the lack to sunlight, we go to every other week in Garden Club. Many things are nearly ready for harvest but it takes longer until we can learn how to cost effectively create sunlight. So we won't have it this week, January 3rd, but we will next week January 10th and again on the 24th and then February 1st and 15th.
Advisors are Mr. Christensen and Mr. Avery.
Please contact Ms. Hilton or Ms. Adams if you have questions.
Pathfinders Program Overview - Pathfinders is an outdoor adventure program.
Groups of students are carefully selected for participation in Pathfinders by teachers, guidance counselors, and school administrators. Students are selected for a number of reasons which may include leadership abilities, a need for academic support, socialization skills, a positive school connection, a love for the outdoors, and/or behavioral performance. These students join a group of experienced teachers from our school to begin training after regular school hours. Their parents attend a meeting to understand our program goals and foster a greater home/school connection. Training may include adventure activities such as ropes course challenges, winter camping, white-water canoeing, or mountain climbing. This training continues for 8 – 10 weeks, depending on the group goals. All program students must carefully follow our Pathfinder goals and expectations in order to continue as members of the program. Academic grades, school attendance, and all other Pathfinder goals are monitored weekly. The 7th and 8th graders who successfully accomplish all goals and expectations can then participate in a five-day expedition into Maine’s beautiful wilderness. Our 6th grade program is similar with 2-3 daytime excursions. BEMS currently offers six programs to on-average fifteen students per program. It is the long- term goal of Pathfinders to offer outdoor adventure opportunities to all students at BEMS. "Get Outside!"
Please contact Ethel Atkinson, Pathfinders Program Director, with any questions.
