PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

BC West Parents and Guardians,

It is hard to believe that we are midway through 3rd quarter here at West Middle School! The students worked very hard 1st semester and through the rigorous exam week. The staff if so proud of their efforts for the start of 3rd quarter and we want to continue to support their progress for the remainder of the school year.

This spring will mark the fifth administration of the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP). This once-a-year test is given to all Michigan public school children in grades 3-8. The results from the test are used to report the academic progress of individual students to their families and to report overall student performance to the public.

In addition to the M-STEP, all 7th and 8th graders will complete the PSAT 8/9. The PSAT 8/9 measures the knowledge and skills that research shows are most essential for college and career readiness and success, at the level of content and skill appropriate for eighth and ninth grades.  As a district, we have decided to have all of our 7th graders take the PSAT 8/9 to begin to prepare for their 8th grade PSAT 8/9, which is now a state accountability test. We look forward to preparing all of our students for these important assessments that provide our staff with detailed information about how to prepare your daughter/son for their high school years. 

If you have any questions about the state assessments, please contact the Main Office at 616-878-6500.
