BMS Principal Update

March 21, 2023

Message from the principal

It's hard to believe that we only have 8 days until Spring Break and 41 days until summer vacation. Students have been working hard, and it's showing in the progress that they are making in their coursework. A huge thank you to all of the parents. At BMS, we realize that educating a child is a collaboration between home and school. Without your support, it would be impossible to make the strides that we have made.

Please read this newsletter to find out about upcoming events and important things to know. As always, if you need anything please reach out to my office.

8th Grade Hale Farm Field Trip

8th grade students will be traveling to Hale Farm on Friday. The weather is quite unpredictable so we are asking that students dress prepared for the weather. They will need to have a coat and appropriate shoes. A huge shout out to Ms. Carson, the 7th/8th grade social studies teacher who organized this event. This is sure to be a great, educational time for students!

Chromebook Collection

With testing coming up when we return from Spring Break, we are going to collect all school issued chromebooks. This will give our tech department time to update computers and ensure that they are ready for state testing. We will begin collecting chromebooks on Thursday. Please make sure your child brings both their chromebook and charger with them to school on Thursday. We appreciate your support with this.
