8th Grade Recognition Event

The 8th Grade Honors Recognition will be held Thursday, May 26 at 9:00 AM. The purpose of Beveridge Recognition Day is to recognize your 8th grade student for his or her accomplishments at Beveridge Magnet Middle School as they transition to High School. Please join us for a morning of honoring what we value so highly – the achievements of our students. The Recognition Ceremony will be held in the Beveridge gymnasium and last approximately one hour.


The ceremony will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you are seated prior to the event starting. As part of our recognition ceremony, all students will be recognized. Each will receive a folder with a list of accomplishments, activities and awards received during the school year. We are including a few special awards that will be announced at the ceremony.


While we know you are very excited about this event, please keep all balloons, flowers and other large gifts at home. These may block the view from others watching the ceremony. In addition, the program is in the morning and students will not be permitted to carry those items throughout the school day. These are wonderful celebratory items, but please present them to your 8th grade student at home.


Students are asked to wear appropriate clothes for this event, with the knowledge that the 8th grade dance will also be that afternoon. We want to make this a memorable event for you and your student. If you have questions regarding our Recognition Ceremony, please contact me at 531-299-2280. We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of your child.

The boys and girls finished their soccer seasons in dramatic fashion. Coach Becker’s boys played their way into the city championship game on Friday May 6th. Our undefeated boys squared off against an undefeated Marrs squad. The game was played at South High’s Collin Field. The boys played a great game but were defeated 2-0. Beveridge finished with a 7-1 record and are city runners-up! Great job guys!


Coach Otero’s girls also finished with a 7-1 record. Our girls took care of Nathan Hale at home on Friday beating the Patriots 5-1. Our girls finished 5th overall in the city. Great season!

Our track team is currently still practicing. City finals for 7th and 8th grade will be this Friday at Bryan High School. This is an all-day event as all 12 OPS middle schools will be competing. Track athletes will be leaving our building as early as 9 a.m. Friday morning. Stay tuned for specific details regarding track city finals.

ATTENDANCE - Make Every Day Count!

Strive for 95 (Missing 9 days or less of school each year). Every student will attend school regularly and arrive on time to meet the goal of 95% attendance for the full academic year. Regular attendance is necessary to keep up with lessons. Students who miss less than 9 days of school each year are more likely to stay engaged, be successful and on track for graduation. Absences in early grades correlate with reading difficulties and poor attendance patterns in later years. Students need to be at school on time every day. Parents are required to call the school's Attendance Office regarding all absences at 531-299-2280.


We need your partnership in all areas of your student's education. Making sure they are here each day, will help to ensure they are receiving the best education possible.
