BMS Parent Newsletter
August 26, 2022
The first week of school is always a little hectic. Due to some the number changes from last year's master schedule, this year has been a little more hectic. Also, as a result of schedule change requests during week 1, we had to go back and level the number of students in some sections during the second week, which meant some more schedule changes. Ms. Lyons, Ms. Tesch, Ms. Batey, and Ms. Preiss have done a great job of working through these changes and the needs of students! We are now settled in for the first semester.
We have 243 students enrolled this year. The 8th grade is the largest class with 89 students currently.
The BMS Volleyball teams kicked off their season in grand fashion on Thursday, August 25. They travelled to Llano and took 3 of the 4 matches played. The 7th Grade A team, 8th Grade A team, and 8th Grade B team all won their games. The 7th Grade B team came up just short in their contest.
The volleyball teams will be back at it on Monday, August 29 at Home against Comfort. The first game will start at 4:30 PM.
7A = 1-0
7B = 0-1
8A = 1-0
8B = 1-0

The site based committee meets to discuss programs, and needs for the campus and will meet at least 2 times during the year. Typically these meetings will start after school (4:00) and should conclude around 4:30 (5:00 at the latest).
