I would like to welcome everyone to another year at Bessemer Academy. This year we will continue to implement the STEM Program (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). This is a great opportunity for all of our students to get firsthand experience working with a variety of educational tools. I am proud to announce that as part of the STEM Program, our students will learn programming and codeing. In order to enhance our students’ reading skills, Bessemer teachers will be utilizing the BURST Program, iReady, Journeys and Collections. Math Expressions, Glenco Math, and iReady will be used to develop and support students in Math.
I look forward to working with your children in order to make their educational experience at Bessemer the very best by preparing them not only to be successful here, but also to prepare them to succeed in high school!
We will focus on student achievement, increase student attendance, and decrease negative student behavior. I know with the commitment of all stakeholders’, we can achieve each of these goals.
