Teacher Appreciation Week
Next week (May 2-6) is National Teacher/Teacher Assistant Appreciation Week. Tuesday, May 3rd is recognized as National Teacher Appreciation Day.  

What are some ideas or suggestions for middle school students to show their appreciation to their teachers?

1.  A simple thank you or a hand written card.

2.  Small gift or token of their appreciation.  Teachers love gift cards!  

3.  Plant/Flower for the desk.

4.  Nice book to read.

5.  Sausage Biscuit from McDonalds (maybe for the male teachers!)

6.  Favorite coffee.

7.  Any idea that is student driven. 

We appreciate all that our Teachers/Teacher Assistants do to provide an excellent education for the students at Bull Run Middle School.

"Great teachers are like a candle:  it consumes itself to light the way for others."  Anonymous

"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery."  Mark van Doren


Congrats Bull Run Robotics Teams!
This year, all six of the Bull Run Robotics teams made it to the State Championship.  One team, the Ducklings, also qualified for the US Open in Council Bluffs, Iowa, where they competed against teams across the country.  In addition, the Intercontinental Ballistic Fish qualified for the World Championship in Louisville, Kentucky, where they competed against teams from 37 different countries!  A sixth grader, Erin Dougherty, was also there to represent the USA, and her team won 8 of their 10 matches, as well as a Sportsmanship award in their division. While we applaud the students who competed in these highest level events, all of our teams worked hard, competed well, learned a lot, and had fun!
