Friday Notes

September 23, 2022

Homecoming takes a village...

Homecoming cannot go smoothly without help from our BJAMS families and friends. There is much to do to ensure it is a success. Please follow this link to the event signup sheet.

We still need attendants at various PTO tables from 4:00-6:00

Please consider spending just a half hour out of your Homecoming attendance to pitch in!


  • There is no ASP on this day: Please make arrangements to ensure your student is supervised by 3:15 pm. Events/activities begin at 4:00 pm
  • Homecoming is a dress down day for students and staff - we ask that folks wear school colors (burgundy and/or gold)!

  • Playground/Nature Trail: The playground is open for family-supervised use - the nature trail is closed! Students (even if supervised) are not permitted to use the nature trail during Homecoming.

  • Smoking, vaping, and/or the consumption of alcohol on campus are not permitted.

Get your BJAMS merch!

You've been asking, and we've got the goods! BJAMS apparel store is opening next Friday.

This event for prospective students and parents offers a great introduction to our school. Meet with faculty and staff to get an inside look at our academic programs. Hear from Vice Principal Dan Routhier as well as some of our students as they share their perspectives on the Rice experience.

It’s homecoming weekend and there’s a lot happening on campus – we’ll have cider donuts, a home football game and great prizes to give away.

If you pre-register for this event, you’ll also be in the running for the grand prize: a free second semester of tuition! The drawing will happen at noon and you must be present to win.
