G4C Student Challenge

The G4C Student Challenge is a game design competition that invites middle and high school students to create digital games about real-world issues impacting their communities. The program includes professional development for teachers, game making courses in public schools and after-school programs, student workshops and game jams, and mentorship by professional game designers.
Barber Middle School submitted 47 games and had ten finalists, the most from any school. Two out of three first place winners in the middle school division were from BMS.

 

Annual Title I Surveys

We invite you to provide feedback as part of our ongoing continuous improvement process.  This allows us to make more informed decisions related to Title I School Improvement Plans and Family Engagement Policies. The survey results will enable our Title I Program to measure stakeholders’ perceptions and help target improvement strategies focused on student achievement as well as school and district effectiveness.  The survey will be available through April 30, 2019. All responses to this survey will be anonymous. In order to complete the survey, please use the links below.

Georgia Parent Survey

Each year, our school receives a School Climate Star Rating within CCRPI.  Our rating is based on students, staff, and parents completing climate surveys.  The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents, you may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you do not have access to the Internet, you may come to the school to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.  We need ALL parents to complete the survey.
