There will be a survey put out to students during homeroom next Friday. A copy of the survey is below. If you do not want your student to participate, please contact Mrs. Rucker.
Power of the Paw is awarded to students who demonstrate our Badger behavior expectations of being respectful, responsible, safe and kind. These students have gone above and beyond these expectations.
Congrats and good job to Elke Stender, Kinzlee Bischof and Spencer Hartig!
On October 11th, Dr. Josh Kearney will be visiting BSMS for a clinic with our combined BMS/BSMS 8th Grade Band. This clinic will also serve as our one and only combined rehearsal for the October 15th Concert with the Nebraska Wind Symphony. BMS students will be bussed from BMS to BSMS at 8:30 AM and will return around 10:45 AM. An online permission form will be collected for all BMS students involved along with information for parents. Reminder - this is an early dismissal day so I am hopeful that the disruption to the academic day will be minimal.
