Byron Center Charter School
Wesley joined the teaching staff at Byron Center Charter as Mr. M during the Summer of 2018. My goal at BCCS (Byron Center Charter School) is to offer students a unique learning environment and opportunities to learn in a group, project based manner. I am currently teaching a variety of classes including middle school social studies for all grades, personal finance, and middle school cultural study/geography. One of my priorities is to be transparent with parents with what goes on in the classroom so below you will find everything from a weekly news letter to another way to contact me. I encourage students to learn by designing larger projects for them to work on and ensure they hit the learning targets along the way. Creating these projects takes time and are something I really enjoy building so the resources for them will also be posted here.
Encouraging Student Videos
Life can be hard some days for middle schoolers for a variety of reasons. Here is a link to a site where you as parents can record a short video for your student to leave them some encouragement or let them know they are loved. These videos will remain private and will only be shown to your student. Another idea would be to record a birthday message if your child's birthday is coming up soon! If you know your child is having a rough day you can let me know and I will pull them aside during lunch or one of our passing times to take a moment and watch your special message.
Here is a link to the activities we walk through each day. Plans made into the future are open for change as classes move through content differently but this is a general guide of what we have covered and will be covering. This breakdown includes all classes and breaks each class down into a few categories including accommodations and homework. Homework will be listed on the day it was assigned and the day that the assignment is due.
Remind is the modern app for contact between parents and teachers. It gives parents a quick and easy way to contact teachers outside of school hours and allows teachers to respond faster and set office hours for when they can respond. Below are all of the codes to each of the classes I teach and a link to download the remind app to your phone.
