Here's some quick tips for helping your student work on-line
1) The number one request for help is about logging into "ZScaler" The zscaler log-in uses the student's UID (lunch number, computer username #, Powerschool #...it's all the same) @k12bcs.net. Again it is UID@k12bcs.net
2) If students were absent when the teacher explained how to get to their LMS (Google Classroom or Canvas) then remind students that if they log into IAM they can access both Canvas and their Google Drive. Also, if they seem to be having issues accessing their school Canvas or Google Classroom from bookmarks, have them log into IAM first.
3) If the student cannot log into their computer, they may have their UID wrong or their password. Call the BCS help desk if they are certain that they have the right information. 255-5987.
4) If the student can log into the computer but is still having difficulty with zscaler, Canvas, Google Classroom or with accessing their information, call the school (686-3852) and ask for the media specialist, Samantha Gallman. If the line is busy, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
PTO meets Tuesday Jan 16 at 5pm in the media center ! Everyone is welcome to help us make this new year a great one !
The people who keep us running everyday year round were celebrated today. The admin team sponsored a luncheon for office staff, and counselors. For one wonderful hour they enjoyed holiday cheer and laughter. We wish we could do more to show the appreciation we have in our hearts for the people who make schooling possible.
Please use the link below to read the 2023 North Carolina School Report Cards.
"The NC School Report Cards website contains snapshots of information about our schools, including the school performance grade, students’ academic growth, how prepared our students are when they enter a school, and a number of other measures as well," said NC Superintendent Catherine Truitt. "These resources are readily available for you and allow transparency into aspects like spending as well as school performance. Although this information is important to know, we know it doesn’t tell the complete story. It doesn’t show the hard work our educators pour in each day for their students and schools and it doesn’t show the spirit of the school itself. No data will be able to show the dedication of our educators nor will it show the extracurricular opportunities, the athletic programs, the apprenticeship, or career preparatory classes - all of which have a profound impact on students and growth."
Update for this year's Mid-Year Graduation: The ceremony will be held on January 27, 2024, at Harrah's Cherokee Center Arena at 11 am; the Inclement Weather Date is January 28, also at Harrah's Cherokee Center Arena at 2 pm. Please reach out to your student's school for more details. #BSCGrads #BCS
Mr. Smith's Physics class investigated Newton's Laws of Motion using water bottle rockets while also incorporating engineering principles to build, test, and modify their own rocket designs. No students or animals were harmed in this process, but a lot of fun was had while learning.
Owen High School students in Mrs. Roland's class crafted some holiday finery for the BCS craft fair. Oh what joy they bring with what glimmers, shines, and could soon be mine :)
