Weyerhaeuser Grant awarded to RLBMS
5th grade science and social studies teacher at Robert L. Bland Middle school was awarded a $2000 grant by the Weyerhaeuser Company. The money will be used to aid in purchasing a mobile lab of iPads. The iPads will be used to help incorporate more science, technology, engineering, and mathematics practices in the classroom. Teachers are looking forward to using new apps, such as Swift and Swift Playground, to introduce students to computer science and coding strategies within the core subject areas.
There are four shuttle buses available to all Lewis County students that runs from the middle school Monday through Thursday at 6 pm. Each bus departs the middle school and heads to different parts of the county. One bus goes out 33W towards Alum Bridge and will go clear to the county line. Another bus goes out 19S towards Walkersville and turns around at the Y. The third bus goes 19W towards Jane Lew, will go out McWhorter Road when needed, and goes out Old Mill Road. The final bus goes out 33E towards Walmart, will go to Quarry Glen Apartments when needed, and travels up Buckhannon Mountain. Students and parents are encouraged to utilize this valuable service.

Attendance Matters - Every Student, Every Day
Research shows that missing 10% of the school year — which can be just two or three days every month — can add up to so much lost time in the classroom that children just can't keep up. Attendance is critical to the success of our students.
