CAREER FAIR

career fair

Students in 7th & 8th grade were excited to take part in the annual Career Awareness Day at Bruner Middle School on Friday, November 21. Forty-four guest speakers from the community volunteered their time to participate in this exciting event.  This day is designed to assist students with career planning by meeting guest speakers from the community and being able to interact with them. As part of the Career Awareness Day, all of the 7th and 8th grade students were able to listen to the guest speakers share information about their careers to include their personal journeys, and what their goals were in middle school.
All of the presenters shared their deep passion for what they do, and gave the students the idea that you must work hard to achieve what you want.  Thanks to all the great presenters for taking the time to come!

Important Food Service Information

School food services will not extend middle or high school students borrowing privileges.  If, however, a student comes to the cafeteria for lunch and forgets to bring their lunch money, the cafeteria manager can provide the student with a temporary loan until the following day.  Temporary loans to students should not be for more than one day.  Cashier personnel will send student with tray to cafeteria manager to fill out meal loan form.

Money may not be borrowed to purchase special sales, a la carte or extra items during meal service time.

Locker Rentals

This school year, 2014-2015, there will be a locker rental fee of $2.00. The locker fee must be paid in advance of receiving the locker number and combination.

Science Department Supply Fee

Unfortunately, the decline in state and district funding to schools, and departments within schools, has coincided with the rising costs of laboratory materials in our economy.  Therefore, the Science department is respectfully asking for a $5.00 lab donation from each student or family, as it has become increasingly hard to provide the type of materials to our students without the help of the Bruner community.
