Energy Star Award Energy Team

Bourbon County Middle School recently was awarded Energy Star cerfication from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This status is bestowed on schools that have become energy efficient facilities while demonstrating "exceptional teamwork among all stakeholders that committed to this goal and operate this building."

Each school is given an energy efficiency rating. BCMS has improved that rating drastically over the last few years. All stakeholders have worked to minimize the use of things that use great amounts of energy as well as perform simple acts like turning off lights, unplugging computers during breaks, etc.

The new lights in the gym and an updated HVAC system have also played a key role in energy savings. We are very thankful for the efforts of all of Bourbon County Schools to assist in this effort. 

Friday Games Charades

Each Friday BCMS has "Friday Games" during our morning meeting. Students can be nominated to participate in the games by teachers. They can be nominated for perfect attendance, doing well on exams, treating others with respect, and more. We play a variety of games. Sometimes it is a silly game like balancing a ball on a cup and sometimes it is a simple game like shooting a basketball. 

Teachers also get in on the fun and can earn jeans days for winning the games. It is a great way to get our Friday started and has been a great thing for the culture of our school.

Chrome Books

Bourbon County Middle School is very excited to start an initiative where every student will get a Chrome Book. There are so many educational resources available on-line in today's educational world. There is also a great program that is becoming more and more popular called "Google Classroom" that our teachers will be able to utilize more effectively with every student having a Chrome Book. 

Students have the opportunity to take their Chrome Book home every night for a mere $15 fee for the year! This fee must be paid before the student is allowed to take their Chrome Book home. Every student must also have a new Acceptable Use Policy form signed. Every student has been given this form. Extra forms can be found wtih each teacher.
