Sixth grade students learned first-hand how to “barter.” Students brought items they had made, found, or purchased that they wished to “barter.” They also realized they could trade services for tangible items. Students returned to their homerooms after the activity to discuss what they had learned. Students found that it was difficult to let go of items it had taken time to create. Below are some pictures of the students learning how difficult it was to trade goods and services. They had fun and learned at the same time!
I would like to thank all of those who made our BIS Open House 2013 such a huge success. I am looking forward to a “Purposeful, Pleasant, and Positive” new school year. Below are a few of the happy faces we met last night. A special “Thanks” to Ms. Stephens for her creativity. She always works hard to make our school a pleasant and positive place to be. We are lucky to have her. I look forward to watching these students grow educationally throughout their time at Brown Intermediate.
We are blessed to have school officers this year. Pictured above are Officer Jason Crowder and Officer Rob Burris. These gentlemen have been a wonderful addition to our school. Not only are they capable security for our students, they are extra smiling faces the students get to see each day. I would like to thank our school board, Commissioner Billy Wayne Stockton, Chief Eddie Byrum, and the entire Sweetwater Police Department for being proactive in protecting our students.
I’d like to welcome you back for another great year at Brown Intermediate. We are looking forward to our opportunities for learning this year, and we can’t wait to get started. The teachers are refreshed and filled with new strategies they have acquired in our summer trainings.
