Geology ROCKS, the 3/4 play, was such a joy to watch!

The 3/4 students thoroughly enjoyed every moment performing in the live show! There were nerves as well as excitement during the days leading up to the performance. Everyone did an incredible job. A huge thanks to the third and fourth grade students and teachers for your hard work and dedication.


Dear Families,

As the end of the year nears we have several events that are BPMS traditions that we hope to bring back after a long break due to COVID procedures. One of our favorite and most loved tradition is our weekly All School Morning Meeting (ASMM), which we host on Friday morning from 7:40-7:55 am. In the past each class has hosted a meeting and families have enjoyed participating in the meeting that their child leads. For the remainder of this year we are taking turns leading meetings and some will be hosted by individual classes. If your child will lead a meeting, their classroom teacher will let you know the week before. For some meetings other staff will lead the meeting with a song or activity. We really miss ASMM and we're excited to bring it back. Families are always welcome to join our meetings from 7:40-7:55 am.

Please check the important dates list below to see some of the dates we have confirmed between now and the last day of school. We look forward to welcoming families back for some of our favorite end of year traditions!

Have a wonderful April break ~

Please return overdue library books before April break! Spring is a time when many of us aspire to clean and declutter. I encourage you to return all overdue library books before April vacation.
