STAR Testing

On December 8th and 9th our students will be taking the STAR test for Math and Reading during Math and ELA classes. It is important for our students to perform their best on these tests. We use the information gathered from the tests to make decisions regarding enrollment in courses, applications for virtual education, and other educational decisions for our students. Make sure your student gets a good night’s sleep and is to school on time and ready to test on these days!

Frozen Jr

BMS Students have been working on this fall's musical, Frozen JR, since late September. Frozen JR. is based on the 2018 Broadway musical, and brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life - onstage! The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production. A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen JR. expands upon the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Anna and Elsa. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood. With a cast of beloved characters and loaded with magic, adventure, and plenty of humor, Frozen JR. is sure to thaw even the coldest heart!

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children/students. You can get tickets here:

During intermission you will be able to enjoy an art show displaying students work from Art 7, Art 8, and 3D Media.
