WELCOME CHARGERS! Whether you are a newcomer or a returning student, we want this year to be most successful. In order to be successful, as principal of Beaufort Middle School I encourage students to follow one simple plan known as the “Charger Way”.
The “Charger Way” ask students to follow three basic steps
Go To Class
Behave In Class
Do Your Best In Class
Students who follow this plan are allowing themselves the opportunity to experience academic success. By doing so, the Beaufort Middle School years promise to be a memorable and rewarding experience.
Challenge yourself to have a great school year. Meet the high expectations and standards we request of our students. Follow the steps in “The Charger Way” and you will have a year like no other! Best of luck to you all as we begin the journey to success.

The mission of Beaufort Middle School
is to collaboratively promote high standards
in a safe environment through high expectations
and shared accountability.
Middle school is a time of explorations. The staff at BMS wants you to have the best middle school experience. Our academic and exploratory teams will offer, throughout the year, many opportunities for exploration.
Studying does not have to be a drag. If you get organized, you’ll get more done in less time, earn better grades and have more time to spend with friends and family.
By using a little time each day to review you notes, complete homework assignments, and prepare for the next day of class, you will remember more information and avoid having to cram for tests. Your agenda planner will help you use your study time effectively. List all you’re your homework assignments and check them off when they are completed.
If an assignment will take several days, like a research paper or studying for a test, break the project into smaller more manageable parts and divide them over several days. For example: if you have a math test on Friday, you might plan to study multiplying fractions on Tuesday, work on division of fractions on Wednesday and then review everything once again on Thursday. By breaking up the assignment, you will accomplish more without feeling overwhelmed.
Good organization will help you complete your homework. Plan a block of time each evening at home to complete your assignments. Make sure you pack your homework ready for school after your parents have check to make sure they are completed.
BMS students are expected to strive for exemplary levels of academic performance. The faculty and staff of BMS will assist each student in attaining high levels of scholarship.
Report cards are issued six days after the end of each nine‑week marking period. The information on the report card will advise the student and the parent about academic achievement during that grading period and academic growth during the year. Interim reports are released 23 days into each grading period.
A ‑ 100 ‑ 93 Superior Work
B ‑ 92 ‑ 85 Good Work
C ‑ 84 ‑ 77 Average Work
D ‑ 76 ‑ 70 Poor Work
F ‑ Below 69
AWARDS OF EXCELLENCE
Recognition and rewards are given to students for academic excellence following each nine week grading period. BMS submits the names of students who have made the Principal’s List and Honor Roll to local newspapers for publication.
· Principal’s List: No grade lower than a 93
· Honor Roll: No grade lower than an 85
· The Climber’s Club: The Climber’s Club recognizes students who improve their average in at least one subject by a whole letter grade. Students eligible for the Climber’s Club can have no failing grades nor drop a letter grade during the nine-week grading period.
The following are awarded at the end of the year.
· The Charger Award: The Charger Award represents both academic and civic excellence. Students must earn a cumulative middle school course work average of 93 or higher with no nine week average in any subject lower than 85. Any assignment of out‑of‑school suspension or the second assignment to in‑school suspension ends a student’s eligibility for this award.
· The Academic Athlete Awards:
· StudentScholar Athletes complete a season with a BMS athletic team and earn no less than a 93-grade average during the quarter of competition.
· Team Academic Awards: Team Academic Awards are given to an entire team if their combined grades for the marking period average no less than 90 grade points.
Beaufort Middle School students will be eligible for promotion to the next grade unless:
· Two subjects are failed OR
· The North Carolina promotion standards are not met.
The principal has the ultimate responsibility for placement decisions.
Regular and prompt attendance is essential for success at Beaufort Middle School. This is the responsibility of the student and the parent. In order to be considered in attendance the student must be present for more than half the day or in attendance at an authorized school activity (field trips, concerts, plays, exhibits, athletic events).
Valid and excusable absences from school include: illness, injury, quarantine, death in the family, medical and dental visits which can not be scheduled during non‑school hours, judicial or administrative proceedings required by the court system, religious observances, immediate demands of the farm, home or occupation, and alternate education opportunities (Title 16 NCAC.0404).
Students should give a note signed by their parent or guardian stating the reason for the absence to the first period teacher within 2 days upon return to school. For excusable absences, the student will be allowed to make up any missed work. Tests, homework, and class work must be made up at times designated by the teacher within three school days of the student’s return. Longer make up times will be granted for prolonged, excused absences.
Unexcused absences and failure to make up work in the allotted time may result in failing marks. Ten unexcused absences may lead to legal intervention.
Students are expected to be in their classrooms, ready to learn when the bell rings. Students who arrive late to school must be signed in at the office by their parents or they must bring a note signed by their parents explaining why they were tardy. In the case of one or more unexcused tardies, the following steps will apply:
1. Student issued a verbal warning
2. Warning (documented in agenda)
3. Contact parent (documented)
4. Call parent & student will be assigned to closed lunch
5. Call parent & student may be assigned one day ISS
6. Parent conference with School Social Worker and team
7. Referral to Step #4
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
Upon arrival to school, all students should report to the gym unless in ISS. At 7:40, students will be dismissed from the gym. Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria from 7:25-7:40. The MediaCenter and 7th grade lab are available in the mornings at 7:25am. Students outside their designated areas without permission will be subject to disciplinary action. If your child is in Jazz band your child needs to in the band Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7:10am
At BMS, uninterrupted instructional time is a priority. Parents should schedule their child’s appointments for after school hours to avoid interruptions. Students will not be able to leave with anyone other than their guardians or persons listed as the emergency contacts on their information sheet.
BEHAVIOR AT BEAUFORT MIDDLE
Most parents and students wonder... “What happens if rules aren’t followed?” During the first weeks of school, our staff will teach rules, procedures, and consequences. Please help us with this effort by going over the policies listed below and in the Carteret County Code of Student Conduct, Section 4300, with your child.
GUIDELINES FOR SUCCESS
Walk quietly to the right of the hall.
Get to school and class on time.
Keep agenda with you at all times at school.
Be in your assigned area, doing your assigned task, at the assigned time.
Speak with appropriate volume and manner.
Go to class with all materials (books, paper, pen, pencil, notebook, homework) needed for class.
Electronic devices and any other items such as toys, gum, candythat distract student or others will be taken. Confiscated items will need to be collected by the parents from the office. A second confiscation will result in an infraction.
While at school, the use of electronic devices is not permitted. Devices are to be stored in book bags or lockers in the off position.
Show respect for other people and their property.
Be respectful of all school property (furniture, walls, classroom material, computers, books, etc.).
Utilize correct locker procedures. (To help ensure student safety, book bags will be left in the locker during the school day.
Gym bags may only be carried to and from the gym.
Listen for and quickly follow directions given by the school staff.
Gum and/or candy is not allowed in school.
Demonstrate school pride by your actions.
Do your best to learn and to help others learn.
Keep agenda with you at all times at school.
Behavior That Leads to Disciplinary Action
1. Violation of county policies: fighting, stealing, threatening, assault, tobacco/alcohol/drugs, weapons, trespassing.
2. Insubordination: Failure to listen to and follow directions given by staff members, not showing respect for others, interfering with communication between home and school, and repeatedly violating class rules.
3. Profanity/Abusive Language
4. Disruption of the learning environment: Any action that would prevent student or others from learning and keeps teachers from teaching.
5. Destruction of property: taking the property of others, writing on or mutilating desks, bulletin boards, pencil sharpeners, etc. abusing agendas, damaging books that belong to the school, a teacher, a student or the library.
6. Harassing and/or bullying.
7. Public Display of Affection (P.D.A.): Student keeps their hands and feet to themselves at all time.
*Violation of team/school rules will result in an infraction. Infractions will be recorded in agenda with rule number or explanation. Infractions accumulate by semester.
Level 1: Closed Lunch
*Two infractions in one week will result in closed lunch the next day. (1 day) (Team teachers will check infractions daily.) Teachers will write the parent a note in the agenda indicating closed lunch.
Level II: 3 Days Closed Lunch
*Two infractions again will result in 3 days closed lunch. Teacher will write or call parent.
Level III: Team Conference
*Students at this level will attend a conference with the team with the parent invited.
Level IV: Office Referral
*After a student has had a Team Conference, an office referral will be made with a recommendation for 1-3 day in ISS (in school suspension). All data of offenses will be attached to the referral and taken to the office.
*A second ISS referral will be made with a recommendation for 3-5 days.
*After two ISS referrals a student is subject to OSS (out of school suspension).
In-School Suspension (ISS)
Based on the philosophy of avoiding out-of-school suspensions, ISS provides an isolated and structured learning environment for a student experiencing behavioral problems. ISS is assigned by an administrator. The school will contact the parent by letter or phone call. Students will be given a copy of the discipline referral to share with their parents that day.
The ISS Coordinator will email teachers of a student assignment to ISS. Teachers will send class work to ISS for the student to do. Students are expected to do all class work and then read for the duration of their time in ISS. The ISS Coordinator will return all assignments to the subject teachers. Students will eat breakfast and lunch in the ISS room. The school counselor will work closely with students in ISS to help them develop a plan and strategies to prevent further disciplinary actions.
Students are to report to ISS class immediately upon arrival at school. Students need to bring all books and supplementary materials necessary for work (i.e. paper, pencils, etc.). Students are to sit in their assigned seats immediately to begin their work. There will be no communication among students during ISS. Students may not leave ISS for field trips or extracurricular activities.
The administration may use this step at any time they feel the situation warrants it without going through any of the above steps. It is our hope that decisions in this area will not have to be made often. Remember, as administrators our goal is to keep students in school; however students will not be allowed to disrupt the learning process or to treat any student or staff member with disrespect.
Severe infractions, such as but not limited to: extortion, sexual harassment, “bullying”, severe disruption of class, theft, severe profanity, and fighting will be sent to the Principal or Assistant Principal for immediate disciplinary actions.
*Refer to the Carteret County Schools Parent’s Guide for consequences of the following offenses:
*Denotes major offense with Zero Tolerance and consequences set by the Board of Education.

The administrator will determine if the offense warrants parental notification.
Offenses warranting parental notification will result in:
· First offense: A disciplinary notice describing the incident will be sent home.

Parents are greatly encouraged to participate in your child’s middle school years by attending all of our special events and participating in the Sports Boosters and The Parent Teacher Organization. Beaufort Middle School has a strong base of parent and community support. We are always eager to expand that base. Your children will appreciate your support to their education and school activities and you will find good people with whom to share fun times.
Please look at and sign your child’s Agenda every night. Help your student organize a regular time every night for study or quiet reading and writing activities. Help them establish the habits necessary to become successful students and scholars.
You are always welcome. Please call or email ahead to set up an appointment. Teachers are eager to work with parents so please make appointments to meet with them when they are not teaching a class. If all of us; students, parents, teachers, coaches, support staff and administrators, maintain high educational and behavioral expectations and if we work together to attain those high expectations, this will be a successful and enjoyable year for everyone.

The Carteret County School System seeks to promote positive, responsible, and appropriate use of the Internet and network services that it provides. The world is increasingly using and depending on the Internet for communication, business, and educational purposes. Therefore, the Internet is a necessary tool that is used in classrooms throughout Carteret County. The Internet provides teachers and students with unique educational opportunities. The Internet is as instructionally important and more current than most textbooks. Web-based programs are used throughout Carteret County Schools to instruct and assess students’ instructional objectives, providing them with specific strategies to enhance their learning. Internet-based software accompanies many textbooks. Web-based programs are used regularly to support student achievement. Many state-mandated tests are now administered exclusively on-line. Teachers are making their course information, lesson plans, and other valuable resources available to students on their class websites. Students must use the on-line public access catalog when looking for materials in the school media center.
Expectations and strategies have been implemented to assist with responsible use of the Internet and network services that are provided by Carteret County Schools. Internet content is filtered to prevent student access to inappropriate material. In addition, software is available that allows staff members to monitor the information that is being accessed by students. Continuous efforts are made to teach students how to use the Internet safely and responsibly.
An Internet Use Policy has been written to address Internet and network issues such as acceptable use, security, vandalism, and consequences for violating the acceptable use policy. Carteret County Schools Internet Use Policy (Policy EGAAC) is located in the Carteret County Student-Parent Handbook. It can also be accessed at http://www.carteretcountyschools.org/PolicyManual/supportservi/EGAAC.doc (Section E).
