Your News... In Real-Time!
At Bruce Middle School we've decided to go paperless with our newsletter.
There are two advantages to this:
- The saving of paper is a savings in costs and more importantly another step in our ongoing commitment to sustainability.
- By offering news in this format, we can now provide our community with real-time news as it happens, instead of waiting until the end of the month to send out information.

The Winter Concert showcases the incredible progress each Band and Choir has made since September. It is very important that ALL students participate. Please make sure that if you have any Wednesday evening commitments that you inform your coach/instructor/teacher ahead of time that you will be missing to attend this concert. Also, we are looking for parents willing to supervise students in the warm-up rooms. If you are available, please let Mrs. Johnson know (firstname.lastname@example.org).

At Bruce, we focus on promoting KINDNESS for Bullying Awareness. This week, we have done a number of activities to promote kindness within our community. One activity we would like to share with our parents is the video "The Science of Happiness" that we watched in BLAST, and had discussions around how gratitude makes us happier and can shape how we treat others. Feel free to enjoy the video, and pay it forward! (Remember to 'Skip the Ad' so that you aren't being forced to watch commercials)
