The BUGS students recently went to see the Baltimore Orielos play. This tripped was paid for by one of the Oriole's pitchers who was generous enough to give our students tickets, hats, and t-shirts.
They even got to meet the Mascot, The Oriole Bird.
Watching a big moment in the game!
In the end, even though the Orioles did not win, all of the students had a great time.

As Part of the Farmers Market on May 5, 2012 students sold candles they made. Votives, Taper and Container candles sold fast as students really highlighted their customer service skills! It was a success! We almost sold out. Looking forward to next year!

Last Friday BUGS students got a chance to switch up their normal groups to get to know each other better and participate in some social emotional learning activities. They made an "eruption" (of diet coke and mentos) and discussed their methods of dealing with anger. They took turns answering questions about their personalities and dreams. They created a BUGS "self portrait" garden. Afterwards they got a snack during an award ceremony where students were recognized in different categories like growth, homework effort, leadership, attendance, and component stars. A fun time was had by all!
