News from Team USA

BFA Debate Team Visits Team USA

Students from BFA shared their high school experiences with Team USA students. Ronnie, Cordelia, and Nate are City School alumni.  They encouraged students to get involved with the many clubs that are offered at BFA, but were extremely animated about the debate club. Ronnie and Cordelia established the club as sophomores and continue to recruit new members each year.  The club offers an opportunity to practice complex thinking, public speaking, organization, and research skills.  Any future BFA students should consider joining the debate club!

Walking Contest Information

The walking contest has begun for the Spring and will carry on for six weeks.

Tally cards for your community are located at the outside breezeway between Renaissance and USA.  They will be collected each Friday and tallies announced Monday or Tuesday the next week.  The community with the most laps by the end of the six weeks will get a field trip to the City Pool.  The Golden Shoe award will be temporarily granted to the learning community with the most laps each week.

Walking and biking to school will be tallied separately and will not count towards your community's walking at school laps.  Instead regular walkers and bikers will be entered into a raffle for prizes at the end of the school year. Tally cards for that "contest" are in the front lobby.  One raffle ticket for each card completed.

Try to get out and move every day.  Enjoy.   If you have questions, contact Mitch Craib.
