This is the biggest year ever for Film Prize Junior and we're so excited to cheer on our Caddo teams that entered the competition. This year, there were submissions from: - Booker T. Washington - Caddo Magnet - Caddo Career & Technology Center - Captain Shreve - C.E. Byrd - Southwood - Donnie Bickham You have through Saturday (5/15) to watch the short films and vote for a winner! Find the films here: filmprizejr.com #VIVALAFilmPrize #WeAreCaddo
The Film Prize Jr. Virtual Festival begins Thursday, May 12th at 9 AM CDT! All the films will be featured on the website www.filmprizejr.com Once the page opens scroll down. The films are broken up into two categories, one is High School and the other is Middle School. Once you pick a film to watch, click on the name of the movie under the picture. This will open up the film page and you can see the movie poster, logline, and what the movie is about. Then click on the arrow, sit back, relax, and watch. Donnie Bickham is participating in the Film Prize Jr. state competition for the first time. We have submitted 3 films to the competition this year. All films submitted by DBMS were written, acted, directed, filmed, and edited by students. For virtual voting, viewers are asked to watch a minimum of three short films in either the middle school or the high school category (if you want to vote for both middle and high school films, you will list 6 different films total), then you will select your top three favorite films as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively. Any ballots found to be cast fraudulently or to skew the results of the competition will be deemed invalid and thrown out, so be sure to only vote ONCE. If you want to see the movies on the big screen, the in-person festival begins Friday, May 13th at the Shreveport Convention Center and will run through May 14th. The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, May 15th.
Congratulations to these and all the inductees to National Jr. Honor Society.

Welcome to all interested Patriot Yell Squad members and parents! The Donnie Bickham Middle School Patriot spirit group has been the most vital support group for the Patriots since the beginning of the school! The spirit group consists of the Yell Squad, the Patriot cheerleaders, the Patriot Belles danceline, and the Patriettes colorguard. Just ask around the neighborhood, and you will soon learn that this group of girls represents high morals, are the basis for everlasting friendships, and are student leaders in the school. If you desire to become a Patriot cheerleader or Patriot Belle, you must have one year of Yell Squad experience. If you choose to remain with the Yell Squad, you will represent a leadership position in the squad as you progress through your Bickham years. I am working diligently to find a cost efficient uniform for this season. The total uniform cost will roughly be around $200-$225. Your items must be paid for in full at the time that you receive your order. No one will be able to perform until all items are paid in full. Attached you will find a contact form. Please fill out the needed information and return the form to Mrs. Perry. There is also a $25.00 spirit group registration fee. The $25.00 nonrefundable fee is included in the total price and must accompany this form to register for Yell Squad as it helps pay for supplies throughout the year. Please pay all fees through payforit.net! *PLEASE NOTE: Students that are currently enrolled at another school may pay the fees by cash. There is a mandatory parent meeting on Tuesday May 17, 2022 at 6:00 pm via Zoom. The $25.00 must be paid prior to the meeting. Information regarding the mandatory Zoom will be sent out via email so please ensure that an updated email address is used on the students contact form. You can print the Yell Squad Contact (in Documents) or pick up a form from the office of DBMS or our neighborhood school partners. Please pay a $25.00 registration fee to accompany this form on or prior to Friday, May 13 through payforit.net (currently enrolled DBMS students) or cash.

Elementary parents: A letter went home today asking who would be interested in having the YEP program at Donnie Bickham next year. It says to fax the completed form to the YEP coordinator, but you may return it to the school and I will fax it to them myself. Please send the completed form back to school with your child. Their teacher will collect them and give them to me. Thank you, CARRIE BROCK
