Bloomfield Hills Schools Literacy Grant

The State of Michigan has awarded a $70,074 Literacy Grant to Bloomfield Hills Schools.

Christine DiPilato, Learning Services Director, explains, "While the focus is literacy support and instruction for kindergarten through third grade, we've done a lot of work extending our curriculum enhancement through fifth grade."  The grant was awarded by the Michigan Department of Education and will be used to meet the district's mission to "deliver comprehensive, challenging, and inspiring education."  

Bloomfield Hills Schools utilizes the Lucy Calkins Reading and Writing Workshops Units to help guide our reading instruction, as well as the Fountas And Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System.  It is an effective program for assessing accuracy, fluency, and comprehension.  We want to develop a culture of engagement for our students by providing high-interest books and giving our teachers with exceptional tools for instruction to meet each child at their level.  Grant funding helps provide the best programs and curriculum for our students.

BHMS Food Expo

Recently the 6th grade students at BHMS had a Food Expo, the culminating activity in their science Unit Challenge. The Unit Challenge asked students to educate their assigned characters, Carl and Mary, about digestion and help them solve their digestion problems. Throughout the unit, students have completed hands-on activities to gain experience and insight into the digestive system, constructed and used models of the digestive system, and developed arguments about appropriate food choices based on evidence and reasoning. They also learned how to optimize solutions following the Engineering Design Process and tied this to the MYP Design Cycle.
