Week of April 13, 2020

Week One

We miss you!

BMS Students,

With Madison County moving to the eLearning, our BMS staff wants to ensure that we are still connected. We will post weekly lessons for you to complete as well as activities for your elective courses. We are heartbroken that we will not be able to interact with you at school each day, but support the decision in order to keep you safe. We truly miss seeing you everyday, but hopefully we can chat via GoogleMeet!

Be safe and if you need us, please reach out.

Kind regards,

Ms. McCutcheon, amccutcheon@mcssk12.org

Ms. Bell, agbell@mcssk12.org

Mr. K, jckennedy@mcssk12.org
