Patriot Updates

Vol. 2 Edition 1


Welcome to the 22-23 school year! We are so excited to kickoff an awesome school year with a strong focus in literacy through our STEM instruction.

Summer Band

We will not have summer band on Monday. As of now, summer band is canceled and we will start band at the start of the school year.

6th grade orientation!

July 28th is our 6th grade orientation from 9am - 12pm. Our 6th graders will get dropped off in the front of the building and spend 3 hours with us, learning about BPMS, how to be a Patriot, basics, of middle school and all the pieces to give our 6th graders a smooth transition!

Meet the Teacher Day

All students 6th-8th grade are invited to join us August 5th from 9am-12pm to Meet the Teacher Day!

Please see the link below to pay student fees and access your schedule on the morning of August 5th then come on up to BPMS and meet the teachers!

School Health Requirements

Please see the flyers below, as there are 7th grade requirements immunizations and new to Pasco student requirements.

Annual Title 1 Meeting

On September 21st from 5-7 we will have our annual Title 1 meeting along with a Parent Teacher Conference and Student STEM Showcase Night! Please mark your calendars for this fun and important event!

New Start Time!

We have a new start time of 9:10am. Students are able to enter the building at 8:50am where they can receive free breakfast to eat in their 1st period classroom.

New Bus and Car loop!

Patriot Families our new start time is 9:10am. We will share a start time with Schrader Elementary. This will mean changes for our bus loop and car loop. The picture below is our new car loop plans. In the morning, students will be dropped off right in front of the school at the teal line. In the afternoon, our parents will follow the red arrows to our new pick-up loop.

Our bus loop is now where our old morning car drop off was in front of building 5.

Bayonet Point Students that are car riders and have a sibling at Schrader Elementary, you will be able to get picked up at Schrader in their car loop to make it easier for families. We will have staff on hand to help those students walk on the sidewalk to Schrader.

We know that with any changes there is an adjustment period but we will work together as a community to make this as smooth as possible.

I am in the process of making a video that will give examples and make it easy.

Have a great summer! I can't wait to see all of our Patriots!

New Bell Schedule!

We will no longer have colored days. Every day we start with 1st period and end with 7th period. Students' lunch will be tied to their homeroom. Every student will report to homeroom for intervention time and then be released from lunch from there. 6th graders have 3rd period lunch, 7th graders have 4th period lunch, and 8th graders have 5th period lunch.

For example, a 6th grade student will have 3rd period homeroom on their schedule, they will go to their 3rd period where we have 20 mins of intervention time, from there, they will be released to lunch.
