BFS students perform an out of this world science experiment!

Students, teachers, and families gathered on a crystal clear day at the end of the school year to watch as the 8th Grader's high-altitude weather balloon soared into the skies.  The experiment left the ozone layer and entered the stratosphere with a top altitude of 101,629 feet before the balloon burst and coasted back towards Earth, gathering data on atmospheric pressure, temperature, velocity, altitude, imagery, and radiation levels along the way.

Kindergarten - We are all unique!

Throughout the year in Kindergarten, as an integral part of Social Studies, Teachers Jaime and Stephanie have focused on an in-depth multidisciplinary study of identity. Through this unit, the students have explored and discovered ways they are similar to and different from their classmates and, specifically, what makes them unique and special. The students explored topics such as hair and the importance it has within different cultures, eye color and the science of genes, gender stereotypes and how we can break away from them, and completed a project highlighting attributes that the students think are "the best" about themselves.
