Student Led Conferences Signup

Student Led Conferences

Go to the link above to sign up for Spring Student Led Conferences. Conferences will be held on:

  • Thursday, February 6 from 4:00 to 8:00
  • Monday, February 10 from 4:00 to 8:00


What is the purpose of our student-led conferences? The main purpose of our conferences is to allow your child the time and place to demonstrate his or her learning to you. This is not a time to have a discussion concerning grades. In each of our classrooms, the teachers should have stations set up for your child to show you what they have learned this year. The teachers should be moving through the team classrooms and have brief conversations with you. If you feel there is more time needed for one-to-one interaction with the teacher(s) to discuss classroom performance, please schedule that for another time.


Student Laptops

Students need to bring their laptops to Conferences when they attend with their parents.


If you are having trouble scheduling your conference online, call the BMS office at 402-715-6100.

Deadline to order a Yearbook is JANUARY 31.

GO TO THIS LINK IF YOU WANT TO ORDER A YEARBOOK ONLINE. YOU MAY ALSO ORDER A YEARBOOK IN THE OFFICE. COST FOR A YEARBOOK IS $30.00.

Is your child refusing to go to school?

At some point every parent has heard their child say this. Unfortunately, for some, this strong feeling of reluctance to go to school develops into a pattern of poor attendance leading to what is termed, school refusal.
