New Bull Run Middle School FEA Chapter

Bull Run Middle School will be starting a Chapter of The Future Educators Association for our students starting September 2014.  This is a great opportunity for our own teachers and administrators to work with students who have an interest in becoming professional educators.  Students who are members of the FEA will be assigned to a mentor teacher and learn about the profession, tutor younger students, attend school faculty meeting and school board meetings, participate in competitions, and attend the national conference in Washington D.C. 
The Future Educators Association (FEA) is student-centered organization dedicated to supporting young people interested in education-related careers.  Prince William County Schools and the Bull Run Middle School community has an interest in proactively recruiting and supporting their next generation of local educators.  We believe that supporting the educational profession is very important and we would like to provide students with an opportunity to learn more about the profession.  Parents and students may visit the national website to learn more about this organization at http://www.futureeducators.org .

The FEA Teacher Sponsor for Bull Run Middle School will be Riley O’Casey.  She will have an informational session at the beginning of the school year to review the application process and provide an overview of the vision and mission of the Bull Run Middle School FEA chapter. 

The following application and forms will be needed in the fall:

Attention: New for the 2014-2015 School Year

Summer Reading: Reading is a Wild Ride!
Start your summer off with a wild reading ride! It's time to finally catch up on that book you've been too busy to read. Bull Run Middle School highly encourages all students to participate in the summer reading program. Students may read books from the summer reading lists or ANY other appropriate titles.

Summer Reading Lists

Students who participate and turn in their documentation forms will be eligible to participate in a fall carnival.  In addition, they will earn one extra-credit "A" in their language arts classes for reading one book or two extra-credit "A's" for reading two books. Students can choose one of the following options to document their summer reading: 
Option 1: Submit your summer reading documentation form electronically. Your language arts teacher will have your information before you arrive on the first day of school. You can submit this form within the first two weeks of school too. 
Option 2: Print the PWCS summer reading documentation form, fill it out, and hand it to your language arts teacher within the first two weeks of school.
Option 3: Print your reading log from the public library's Wild Reads program. Hand it to your language arts teacher within the first two weeks of school.

Bull Run Middle School has been recognized as a School of Excellence for the 2013-2014 school year. Congratulations to all of our students, staff, parents and community members for receiving such a prestigious award. This is the second consecutive year that we have earned the award and sixth time overall. 
The School of Excellence award is based on the overall performance of a Prince William County School as determined by specific measures identified by the Strategic Plan in the area of student achievement, school climate and student health(wellness). The measurement results are based on 2012-2013 SOL student achievement results in grades 6-8, results of staff and student climate surveys and the percent of students passing the identified physical education requirements. To achieve the recognition and honor of a School of Excellence, a school must meet at least 90 out of 100 points on the Prince William County School’s Strategic Plan measurements.
