Dr. Keietta Givens
I am so honored to serve as the Proud Principal of Bair Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year. I know this past year has been difficult for many but, as a community we were able to thrive and persevere. I want to thank the Bair community for supporting the school during this pandemic and not giving up on us. NO LIMITS in 2022: Stay Focused, Stay Committed, Stay Positive is our theme. This is a true representation of our school and focus for the year.
It seems that in a blink of an eye, the first quarter came and went. However, we are beyond excited for what’s to come during the second quarter! With our continued focus on Social Emotional Learning (SEL), we have transitioned back to a traditional school setting where we continue to support the “whole-child” with our student-centered initiatives.
Bair will continue to focus on student success and building systemic partnerships within the Sunrise community. As we continue to transition back into a traditional school setting, our focus will be developing students’ who are socially conscious, have a global perspective and academically successful. Teaching and learning are at the cornerstone of everything we do.
The Bair Middle Montessori Magnet program has expanded over the years to deliver a curriculum that is immersed the Montessori philosophy of teaching and learning. Our elective programs continue to expand year after year with the addition of a Python certification program starting in the 7th grade and culminating in 8th. This year we are so excited to introduce the Amazon Future Engineer Program (AFE), sponsored by Amazon. We are the only middle school in Broward County with this program. Additionally, Bair is an Innovative Program for STEM which is embedded in all content areas and electives.
Bair will continue to offer Digital Tools, Journalism, Debate, Physical Education, Art, STEM, Technology courses, Spanish and Band as electives. Bair offers high school credits for Geometry, Algebra, Spanish, Debate, and Digital Information Technology. As you can see, it is all about the B.A.I.R. (Bound for College and Career, Analytical thinker, Intelligent, Responsible person). After three years, your child will leave Bair well-rounded and ready for high school.
I know Bair will have NO LIMITS in 2022 with the support of teachers, students, parents and the community working together toward a common goal, which is student success.
Have a Great Year!!!!
