Family Weekly Update

June 3, 2022

Dear BFMS Families;

It's already June!

We've been blessed with great weather that has allowed our baseball, softball and track students to finish their seasons strong. Today the sixth grade is at the Recreation Center as a reward for the effort and hard work students put forth with their recent MAP testing.

Our first art show and concert in two years was a smashing success and well attended. Our artists, singers and musicians all did an amazing job after having limited practice time due to COVID. We're looking forward to a full schedule of performances and celebrations next school year.

We're trying something new! We have purchased cell phone holders for each classroom. They are pouches where students can put their phone as they enter the classroom and retrieve it when they leave. The hope is the pouches will help to keep students off their cell phone during class allowing them to focus on their work and teachers not having to address the distraction of phones.

Here's the timeline of the end of the year activities:

  • June 6th - Grades close for 8th grade students only
  • June 9th - River Valley Tech Visit 11:00-12:00 (Contact Cathy Morris with any questions)
  • June 9th - 7th grade to the Fish Ladder
  • June 10th - 8th grade goes to the Opera House 9:00-11:50
  • June 11th - 8th grade dance at the Moose Lodge
  • June 13th - 8th grade field trip
  • June 14th - Move up night
  • June 15th- 7th grade to the Recreation Center.
  • June 15th - 20th- Optional 8th grade attendance
  • June 20th - Last student day (half day)

~ As always thank you for your support of our students and school.
