Welcome to Black Mountain Middle School

Welcome future BMMS Raiders!

We are so excited to welcome you to Black Mountain Middle School. We understand that changing from the elementary school where you spent the last 6 years (or less) is a big transition to middle school. We got you!

We don't know yet if we will all be able to come back to campus for this upcoming year. But, we want to take a moment and say, you are our heroes. You've been making history the last year! No one else has ever had to do on-line learning while making adjustments. You've probably had a few glitches during the last year with computers, internet connections, and learning zoom. We admire your resilience.

We are looking forward to having you be a part of our BMMS Raider Family! We are here for you. If you need something or have a question, reach out and ask.

There is a lot of information in the newsletter that might answer your questions. We have even scheduled a Parent Information Night "Bridging" to provide information for your parents too.

In March, the Counselors along with our awesome ASB officers will be hosting zoom meetings to give you an opportunity to hear about BMMS. They will be answering your questions too.

Before school begins in August, we will have an orientation for all of you! Again, we don't know yet if it will be in-person, on-line, or a hybrid. We will be providing information about that as the time gets closer. So be sure to check our school's calendar and/or connect on our social media. Ed-Connect messages will also be sent out each week starting in August with updated information. So be sure to open the newsletter to get all the information to keep you up to date.

Wishing you a great school year for 2021-2022!

Bridging to Black Mountain Parent Night

This is a parent event for student transition from 5th grade to middle school. The Bridging to Black Mountain event is intended for parents of incoming 6th graders and is designed to take the mystery out of Middle School. We feel that the more you and your child know about Middle School, the more positive your experience at Black Mountain will be. Bridging to Black Mountain is an overview of a typical 6th grade schedule, curriculum, teacher expectations; as well as answer any other questions you may have. This night is designed for parents. A separate orientation for your child from a student perspective will be held in August. Our goal is to build excitement and comfort surrounding your child's attendance at Black Mountain.

Virtual Meeting: March 10th, 2021

6:00-7:30 PM
