Mr. Corso’s Principal’s Message

Positive Raiders: Responsible, Respectful, Hard Working and Kind


BMMS was recently informed that for the 4th year in a row, we were designated by the ADL as a No Place for Hate School. No Place for Hate is a self-directed program combating bias and bullying as a means to stop the escalation of hate. NPFH schools are dedicated to creating a more equitable and inclusive climate. Thank you for supporting our quest to become a No Place for Hate.


Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: May marks Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. All month during Homeroom, we will be celebrating the many contributions Asian Americans have made to our country. Thank you BMMS ASB for leading this celebration!
