Dr. Helen Baldwin Middle School, as reported by Principal Mr. Ryan Earley

During the first half of the school year the staff and students at BMS have been deeply engaged in learning in various ways.  I think it is great that the students in Canterbury have been able to experience learning outside of the classroom that have ranged from the arts to science and technology. Grade 8 students had the Senegal exchange students from Woodstock Academy visit, been able to visit and learn about their high school options, visit Salem MA during the week of Halloween, take a walk down to the Prudence Crandall museum. Grade 7 students spent several days in Wakefield RI at Nature’s Classroom, spent time with an expert on the topic of the Titanic. Grade 6 students took a trip to the USCGA to see a performance of the band as Grade 5 students enjoyed a math Olympics, a Book Barn visit, and various science labs and experiences. The New England Center for Children program also coordinated a wonderful Harvest Luncheon that incorporated cooking, conversation, and the opportunity for students and staff to break bread together to show thanks and support for each other. There have also been several whole school events such as the NFA band, chorus, and dance team perform, the first annual Fall Festival, school talent show, music department Holiday Concert, food drive, a Day of Hope for the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks, and athletically a very successful fall season with the girls soccer team winning their division championship. Canterbury also awarded Jessica Kasecek and Gina Leo with the Superintendent’s Award for 2015 from Grade 8. BMS also sent a team of female students to the statewide summit for Girls in Manufacturing in New London. As the students have been learning and growing, the adults in the school community have been concurrently working diligently on providing more personalized instruction using new assessment tools, creating new fire drill and lock down procedures, and learning about the role that Google Applications for Education can have within the classrooms of BMS. I look forward to sharing more exciting news in the coming months.
